To complete the array of fascinating river sports offered in the Valsesia, which seems to have been favoured as a prime location and beckons across the nations, there are two sports left to mention. Perhaps less popular, these sports are nonetheless highly considered by those who have at least once tried them.
Riverboarding, known primarily as hydrospeeding in Europe, uses a small floating board for the single participant to enjoy thrilling rides down the river with moments of pure excitement, immersed in the bubbly turbulent waters along the various safer tracts of the Sesia.
Tubing is a very different way of challenging the river. It is a very easy sport that is open to all: the single participant remains seated on a large inner tube which can be rowed with a double-bladed paddle. Fun is guaranteed as the tube is conveyed by the natural thundering current and it spins and rocks as you try to balance and counteract the movements.
Naturally, all these sports are tailored to one’s own ability and physical strength and these may be determined with the assistance and professional guidance offered at the various specialized centres across the Valsesia.
