Valbrenta nestles between two majestic rings of mountains and is crossed by the impetuous waters of the River Brenta, offering spectacular landscapes of unusual beauty: each meander of the river offers a different vista, with new colours and a different atmosphere. Each bend of the road hides small villages huddled against the mountains. The view is first closed in by the imposing mountains, then unexpectedly opens out to limitless panoramas. The woods, old footpaths, streams, small lakes and mountains offer scenes of magnificent natural beauty. The area is a true gem, a green valley furrowed by the bright silver band of the River Brenta.
For river sports enthusiasts the River Brenta offers the opportunity to do:
CANOEING: it is possible to do weekly or week-end canoeing courses or simply to have a go without the commitment of a complete course.
RAFTING: you can explore the river, experiencing exciting descents over the rapids on board rubber dinghies specially designed for river rafting, accompanied by an expert guide.
HYDROSPEED: this is the latest river sport, perhaps the most exciting. You make your way downstream completely immersed in the water, equipped with river board, wetsuit, helmet and flippers.
RIVER TRACKING: this is a trip to the most secret corners of the river. Accompanied by guides you can dive into emerald-green pools, amidst the mossy banks and rocks.
