Do you want to try an ‘extreme' sport suited to everyone? The only basic requirement for rafting is knowing how to swim. Then all you need to do is bring suitable clothing, a good measure of courage and head out to the part of Valnerina outside of Terni, between the towns of Ferentillo and Arrone.
Here the Nera river offers fantastic rapids perfect for rafting. After a short lesson in basic theory, put on your wetsuit, life jacket and helmet, and climb on board the raft, ready to experience the excitement and enjoy the spectacular scenery.
Settle into the guided rhythm and movement of the group in the raft: the adrenalin rush is fabulous as you go down the river and especially when you feel as though you are falling into the water pulled by the river's force. This is the true thrill of rafting.
This river experience lasts for just a couple of hours. In the time you have left over you can visit either Arrone or Ferentillo.
Arrone is a small fortified town that rises on a rocky hill on the left bank of the Nera river, on the border with the province of Rieti. Walk to the highest part of town and admire the medieval city walls that have remained almost intact over the centuries.
