3 hours canoe trip through the wild and fascinating gorges of Rio Novella. Canoe on the lake an incredible family adventure.
The Novella River Park is a 3.5 km route which runs through the settlements of Cloz, Dambel and Romallo in the Non Valley, crossing woodland and breathtaking canyons. The principal role is played by the waterway - vital for both nature and man.
We would urge you to experience this remarkable canoe trip on the lake. You'll be accompanied on this adventure by an English-speaking specialist instructor, who'll show you the spectacular Novella gorges formed by the flowing waters in the course of thousands of years.
After a very quick introductory lesson and the distribution of the technical materials, you'll set off on the journey through the Novella fjords.
This is an incredible but totally safe experience, in a tiny corner of paradise that few people know about but which is truly impressive. The trip is particularly suitable for couples and families, even those with youngsters (aged over 5).
The Santa Giustina lake is an artificial lake built between 1943 and 1951, which means that it fluctuates considerably throughout the year. Depending on these fluctuations, it is possible to see one, two or three canyons carved by the Rio Novella. The round trip to see the first canyon is 6 km, for the second 8 km and for the third 9 km. Bear in mind that you need to be able to paddle for two or three hours, even if it is a slow one.
