Alcantara Jumping & body rafting

Do you want to discover adventure, water and the Alcantara River at its best? Choose the Alcantara Jumping & body rafting excursion.

This excursion consists of a combination of jumps from different lava rocks into the water. (If you don't have the courage to jump, you can also rappel with a rope (as in canyoning). Also, you can move around in the river by swimming and sliding, doing body rafting in the river!

This excursion is ideal for those who want to explore the Alcantara River in less touristic places. And for those who want a stimulating combination of sliding, swimming, body rafting and lots of adrenaline jumps! While when body rafting in the Alcantara Gorges you discover only 400 meters of river, on this excursion you will discover about 2 kilometers of river! During the excursion you will always be accompanied by 1 or more experienced guides.

What you will do during Alcantara Jumping & body rafting

You will meet the guide around 9 am in Francavilla di Sicilia. From here, the organization will take you to the starting point where you can change. We recommend that you put on your swimsuit in advance so that you can quickly put on the "diving suit" that the organization will lend you. The organization will also provide you with shoes, life jacket and helmet.

From the exchange point (here you can leave your belongings in a locked room) you will walk to the starting point in the river. You will be walking in true Sicilian nature! Once you reach the starting point, the experience begins. Jumping, swimming, sliding and partly body rafting, you will go down the river for about 2 kilometers.

Some sections can be repeated several times if you wish. For example, you can have a "rafting" experience several times. Often you can also choose the height from which to jump into the river. However, this can only be done if the guides indicate this, as they know the safe sections. Sometimes you jump from 2 meters and sometimes from 4 meters (if you dare). Don't have the courage? No problem, in fact there is almost always the possibility of returning to the river via a short detour. Alternatively, we use ropes (at Alcantara canyoning) to slide you down.

Safety always comes first. That is why the guide always determines the route and will advise you where to go down the river and in which direction.

Do you have a family or group member who would like to go with you but doesn't want to participate? No problem, we can give them a largely side walk. (It's convenient for taking photos, too! ;-))
