Dear friends, welcome to My Own Italy to discover Italy with my personal touch!
If you would like to live an extraordinary experience watching nature from a different point of view I invite you to discover a different Lombardy rafting along the Ticino Regional Park.
Let's follow the professional team AcQua - Rafting sul Ticino.
We can start from the naval base at the Hydroelectric Power Station "Ludovico il Moro" in Vigevano .
Everywhere in the world there are more rivers "quiet", which in technical terms are classified as "Class 1".
The majestic and peaceful River Ticino, immersed in the homonymous nature park, established in 1974, belongs to these.
Rafting on Ticino means being able to enjoy the excitement of a river navigation adrenaline active.
The sports association "AqQua" that offers this unique experience called in Italian "Slow Rafting"
Birds of rare beauty that cross the majestic river Ticino, uninhabited islands, where to stop for a refreshing swim or a snack.
In river Ticino there are "amazonian" atmospheres that you can enjoy in the water tunnel completely covered by lush vegetation.
The river Ticino is navigable for 110 km from Lake Maggiore up to its confluence with the Po, after Pavia.
The routes proposed by AqQua wind from Magenta in Vigevano, or from Bereguardo, near the bridge of boats, to Pavia.
In the second section the natural environment remains intact in the beginning and then it fits into the historical context when go past the Lido di Pavia.
The nautical base of Vigevano is located at the historic hydroelectric power station "Ludovico il Moro", which is a splendid Art Nouveau building constructed in the early '900, and it can be visited free of charge by reservation.
At the end of the day you can take a rest and enjoy relax in a very special place.
A moment you can share with your family (as I did!) or with your friends.
Leisure me: this is my tourism secondo me!
