The Rio Novella gorge is jaw-dropping but would you ever have imagined that such a wild place could be hidden between amongst the pleasant farmland of the Val di Non? I enter in my kayak and the walls of the gorge are so narrow that I can touch both of them just by stretching out my arms!
Just imagine the light that filters in from above, casting shadows on the rocky walls, the little drops of water that sparkle like pearls and diamonds in the dark, narrow passages that open up into little oases of sunshine.
All this in a place where the silence is only broken by the gentle swishing of your paddle in the water. Paddling is such a fantastic activity, suitable for everyone, you are surrounded by water but you don’t even need to know how to swim. The group is always accompanied by a guide who leads the kayak across the serene waters of Lake Santa Giustina.
To begin with, the panorama is vast and open but afterwards the rocks slowly begin to close in, forming genuine canyons, only accessible in these narrow canoes. This activity is safe, maybe a little bit tiring, but certainly astonishing because it brings you to an unseen, unexpected and surprising part of the Val di Non.
