Dora Baltea River, situated in northern Italy, is the left hand tributary of the well-known river Po. The water body is almost 160 km in terms of length and is just the ideal place to go for a rafting expedition. The river has its source in Mont Blanc where the Dora di Ferret converges with the Dora di Veny.
As the river travels through the Aosta Valley, the Dora Baltea River crosses through the city of Aosta and Saint-Vincent. While making way to Piedmont, the river heads towards the city of Ivrea and crosses through a large portion of Canavese. Soon after, the river reaches the Po, close to Chivasso.
Being a snow-fed river, the Dora Baltea River remains in its best condition during the early summers – i.e. from the month of May to June. During this time of the year, the river usually shows its maximum strength. From the month of July to September, the levels are much moderate and the temperature is much warmer.
A popular place to go on a kayaking or rafting trip, the Dora Baltea River sports rapids of high levels and offers the rafters utmost satisfaction with its different navigable sections. The impetuous torrents of the river will bring you a lot of excitement and fun. Apart from the turbulent waves, the river has numerous stoppers as well, giving you ample occasions to test your rafting mettle.
Once out on the rafting trip, you even get the choice to get closer to the nature while navigating through the scenic beauty of Italian countryside. So, fasten your seatbelts and get set to take the plunge. Remember you must be 16 years and above.
