How are activities organized? May I know your timetable?
Soft rafting has a more flexible schedule, while for Papigno activities under the Marmore Waterfalls the timetable is extremely rigorous, since it is bound to the opening times of the waterfall.
Marmore waterfall, in fact, has an artificial water release connected with the hydroelectric plant.
That is the reason why on Marmore Waterfall site you find the opening hours of the water.
As rafting center we are forced by those opening hours because rafting can be done only when the water of the waterfall is open.
Usually in the mornign the appointments are 9.30 a.m. and 10.30 a.m., while in the afternoon at 2.00 pm and then to follow every hour.
