Body rafting Gole Alcantara excursion
The excursion starts a few hundred meters downstream from the entrance to the Alcantara gorge. Here you will meet the guides who will assist you in this adventure and you will be given the equipment (diving suit, life jacket, helmet, water shoes).
After you have done the dressing up phase you will have a short briefing and set off for the Gole Alcantara to start the body rafting activity. Included in the excursion is the entrance to the Gole dell’Alcantara via the municipal staircase.
The Body rafting Gole Alcantara route starts from a small sandy beach. Swimming, walking, clinging and jumping, you have to go up the Alcantara River for about 700 meters inside the canyon of the Gole Alcantara (The Alcantara Gorges in English).
When you arrive at the small ‘cave’ you have a quick break. During this break, the guide explains the return. Because it is now that the real body rafting Gole Alcantara begins! You go down the Alcantara River, letting the water carry you through fast currents and small waterfalls.
The river takes you back to the starting point. From the small beach of the Alcantara Gorges you climb up from the communal stairs to reach the starting point of the organization. Here you can change back, flush yourself with a water tube and buy something to eat or drink, if you wish.
Guide and body rafting instructor
