Canoeing in Ticino

The Ticino starts high in the Alps as a wild river and where it leaves the steep mountains is where your canoe adventure begins! Splashing waves, emerald-green water, white granite rocks and gravel banks allow us to experience nature as close as possible.

In the sunny canton of Ticino we have the opportunity to try Canadian rafting! More and more people are discovering this exciting mixture of thrills, nature experiences and team challenges for “kids and the young at heart”.ย The motto for Canadian rafting is: The smaller the boat, the more fun. As a small team in a stable canoe you will learn what white water rafting in Ticino means: Fun, action and nature experience – in any case!

The narrow tube canoe makes the canoe tour a real experience. Steer through the waves and granite rocks of the “fiume Ticino”, accelerate, steer yourself and then? Into the surge of water…!

Our basic canoe tours are ideal for a company outing, as a company incentive and as a club or school outing.

Canadian Rafting: Action – Fun – Nature Experience. Fancy an adventure?

Discover the beautiful Ticino in a canoe.

Splashing rapids, sparkling water and beautiful beaches along the shores are waiting for you. Unlike an adrenaline-filled rafting tour, this experience is for those who want to enjoy a Mediterranean landscape and a relaxed and fun canoe trip. We accompany you on a suitable stretch of the Ticino river and give you the necessary safety instructions and tips to be able to steer your canoe yourself!

Before we get on the canoes, we will do some exercises with you and your friends so that you can go down the river safely and relaxed. With enough time and without haste you have time to admire the nature. If you feel like it, you can also dive into the freshย  water and float in the current.

This tour is also suitable for groups, school groups and clubs.

Canadian Rafting Ticino

Splashing rapids, sparkling water and beautiful beaches along the banks of the Ticino river! A unique experience awaits you, suitable for those who want to enjoy a Mediterranean landscape and an amusing, but also technically demanding canoe tour.

Don’t expect an adrenaline-filled rafting tour with level 4 rapids.

We paddle with you a medium distance on the river Ticino, we are not sitting on a wide raft, but on a narrow canoe, which significantly increases the probability of capsizing. Before we get into our canoes, we will do a few more exercises and give you the necessary instructions and tips to master your canoe skillfully and to be able to go down the river safely and well prepared. We are in no hurry, have time to swim in the fresh water and get amazed by the wild Ticino landscape and train a few rescue exercises.
