Jun 25, 2013 BY AWE365 Team

It’s easy to think of Italy as being all about fantastic wine and food, classical architecture and lush rolling countryside. It’s certainly got all that but for those that are looking for a bit more excitement should consider rafting Aosta Valley. Something not many people know about Italy is that it’s home to some of the continent’s best rafting adventures.

One of the premier rafting destinations in Italy, the majestic Aosta Valley, offers rafting adventures throughout the summer. It’s the perfect place for adrenaline junkies of all ages and abilities. From 7 to 70, you’re never too young or old to enjoy an unforgettable adventure by rafting Aosta Valley.

Rafting Aosta Valley

Totem Adventure based in Pre Saint Didier can tailor your Aosta Valley rafting adventure to your needs and offers some of the very best and most exclusive rafting runs in Italy. They are based on the spectacular shores of the Dora Baltea at the confluence of the Dora la Thuile and Dora di Courmayuer. This is an incredible place to begin your rafting experience, bringing together the crystal clear glacial waters of Mont Blanc in huge volumes, from May to September

The lower end of the rapids is the children and family section, providing plenty of enjoyment in a calmer and safer environment. A little further upstream are some more heavy duty rapids for those who prefer a bit of the rough stuff. All Totem Adventure guides are certified by the Fedriazione Italiana Rafting and are expertly trained to safely lead you on your rafting Aosta Valley adventure.
