The very sweet initial part allows the participants to "take the measures" to prepare for the rapids they will have to face on the suggestive wooded gorges. In this section, rafting is easy thanks to the good flow of the river increased by the confluence of the Meledrio torrent coming from Madonna di Campiglio - Folgarida - Dimaro and the Rabbies coming from the Val di Rabbi. After a succession of rapids, led by an expert White Water Guide, the arrival is expected at the wonderful rapid of Ponte Stori.
The large volume of water of the spring thaw makes this route very adventurous, in the middle of summer with less water it turns into a panoramic rafting descent particularly suitable for children.
