About us

The river

is an extremely dynamic natural environment that offers the possibility, especially for young people, to develop various educational objectives: sports practice, environmental culture, socialization, self-esteem and respect for the others, spirit of adventure and autonomy.

Moreover, the fundamental element that most enhances this sport is undoubtedly the ecological one: the canoe, in fact, allows you to immerse yourself in a suggestive nature that enchants and which always requires the biggest respect, but it is just one of the many activities to be carried out in Valnerina.
