Valsesia, Italy


Would you like to join us for an adventure in Valsesia, Italy?

Valsesia

The perfect steep creeking location, nestled on the Italian Swiss border is the granite paradise of Valsesia. With clean granite slides and drops the rivers are generally forgiving, for the steepness, with clear pools between the main rapids, making it the ideal training ground to take you boating to the next step.

The rivers cry out for modern moves with endless opportunities for flairs and boofs, making for great dynamic lines.

We'll be based from a campsite central in the Sesia valley, minimizing the driving time to maximize the time on the water, whilst giving us the flexibility to move out of the valley to the Swiss Ticino region, to make the most of the often changing water levels.

This trip is for the paddler who is confident on grade 3 and has some experience of grade 4 and who wants to experience paddling on steeper white water.

Provisional Itinerary

16 May Pick up from Milan Malpensa Airport
17 May Loosen up on a section of the Sesia, setting the aims for the week and working on the creeking essential skills.
18 May Sorba Slides - hit the steep runs, with a roadside section. We'll look at running slides and tweeking that posture on drops to nail the landing, before heading up to sections of the Gronda
19 May Egua - one of the best creek runs ever and a personal favorite of the trip leaders. Endless slides and auto boof drops gradually build throughout the day to some fun drops to finish.
