Canoe Gorges of Novella

A canoe trip in the Novella Gorges in Val di Non Trentino is a unique experience for everyone.

The route starts from the the brand new Plaze di Dermulo beach, equipped with changing rooms, bar, toilets and large car parks. After the delivery of the material and a small safety briefing, our guides will transport you in a very comfortable tow with a motor boat to the entrance of the first canyon where you will enter by kayak.

The route takes place in Trentino in the magnificent Val di Non and winds through canyons over 50 meters high, dug over the centuries by the Novella stream.

Amazing and super safe experience. A corner of Paradise still unknown to many but certainly suggestive. Exciting guided kayak excursion, particularly suitable for couples and families, even with small children (from 5 years of age).

Accompanied by an expert instructor you can live an experience of adventure, immersed in the fascinating and wild gorges of Novella in Val di Non, visible in their entirety only from the lake.

The experience in its entirety lasts approximately 3 hours. The tow takes about 20/30 minutes both outward and return in which you will enjoy the spectacular panorama overlooking the Brenta Dolomites, Castel Cles and the fantastic apple orchards of the Val di Non.

The canoe excursion in the Novella gorges in Trentino with Ursus Adventures does not require a great physical effort since a large part of the approach route is carried out towed by motor boat.

The activity will be carried out mainly with double canoes. We will try as far as possible to keep families together but there is the possibility, in the case of odd numbers, to go up with other people or in a single canoe. The guide has the right to divide members of the same group on the canoe, in order to make the experience safer and more pleasant.

It’s a real top experience to keep in your memory book.
