Blue trekking on the Elsa river

price from On request


A day of trekking between land and water, immersed in another dimension along one of the most popular river paths in the area: the SentierElsa. This is a river corridor between the Sienese Chianti and San Gimignano rich in vegetation, you will feel like being in a rainforest rather than in an Italian river. In the morning a driver will pick you up at your hotel in the direction of Colle di Val D’Elsa, a characteristic Renaissance village. The route begins at the foot of the beautiful Diborrato waterfall and continues running parallel to the Elsa river for about 4 km. This river has its source at the foot of the Montagnola Senese but its real “secret” is the contribution of crystal clear spring waters in “Le Vene” and thermal waters in “Le Caldane”. At the end of the walk it will be possible to explore this spectacular waterway even more closely, thanks to the raft. Together with the crew we will move as a small handful of explorers, ready to overcome the obstacles (limestone pools of the Elsa) working as a team, immersed up to the waist in its crystal clear waters, helping each other in the transfer of the raft. At the end of the experience we will relax with a picnic along the banks of the Elsa river until the driver will take you back to your hotel.
