In Umbria, under the Marmore Falls less than an hour from Rome, you may find an wonderful place to go rafting descending the rapids on rubber dinghies. Here the
Nera river flows fast bubbling over the rocks for more than three kilometers with rapids of fourth degree (from 1 to 6 the difficulties of rafting), surrounded by a
lush vegetation in a tropical like environment.
As for the thousands of people who experienced that emotion in the past twenty years, you do not need particular skills:
it is enough to be able to swim well, to be in good health, with an age between 18 and 55 and to weigh less than 100 kg; the Management has the right to exclude
from advanced sports activities those who do not give evidence of adequate psychophysical skills.
After wearing the neoprene suit the shoes, the water jacket (e.t. is supplied by the center) and after a theorical and practical briefing, visitors wear the floatingaid “life preserver” and the helmet; than they are driven by means of a Le Marmore vehicle to the embarkation which is located just aside the Cascata delle Marmore, the highest one in Europe.
On each boat there are six people, generally at their first experience, and a qualified guide of F.I.Raft (Italian Rafting Federation) that gives them the
commands during the descent; the descent lasts about one hour; the whole activity, the shower included, lasts about two and 1/2 hours.
