the most magnificent location - the dolomites
exciting, action-packed activity programme including white water rafting, mountain biking, kayaking & more!
hotel accommodation surrounded by nature & mountains
When it comes to adventure, it doesn't get much better than a trip to the magnificent Dolomites. Our new Italian Adventure offers schools and youth groups the most exciting residential, set in the picturesque Val di Sole valley.
Our expert partners at Trentino Wild will deliver your activity programme, designed to immerse you in nature and the beautiful local environment. Some of the highlights include white water rafting on the Noce River (the only European river to be classed by National Geographic among the top 10 in the world for river sports!), kayaking on the Canyon Rio Novella, mountain biking on a riverside trail and so much more. You'll also get to ride on a cable car and see some of the most spectacular mountain views.
At the end of an action packed day, you can relax in your hotel and on some of the evenings there will be activities such as mini golf, paint balling and use of the centre facilities.
Activities here are delivered by our partners Trentino Wild who have been operating here for over 37 years.
The full list of activities available here includes: white water rafting on the Noce River (a paradise for river sports), mountain biking on the Val di Sole cycle lane, kayaking on the Canyon Rio Novella, trekking, archery, high ropes, mini golf, paintballing and a cable car excursion.
The Noce River offers some of the best rafting in the world, indeed it is included in National Geographic’s list of the top ten rivers in the world for rafting. Hardly surprising then, that this sport is one of the most popular in Val di Sole. Our activities are always led by a professional guide who provides you with technical advice and essential instructions before setting off.
The Val di Sole cycle path is 35km long, with the River Noce running along side. The route offers an easy ride and is a relaxing opportunity to experience the local nature from the mown meadows in the upper valley, over cooling streams, down to the apple orchards in Caldes and Cavizzana.
Large High Ropes course - Trentino Wild Park
The beautiful Trentino Wild Park is a large high ropes course up in the trees within the Val di Sole. There are many suspended routes of different heights and difficulties. The course has over 100 sections including negotiating suspended courses (pulleys, Tibetan bridges, footbridges, tunnels, etc.) between trees.

what makes this trip special?
The Val di Sole is a most magnificent location in Trentino, northern Italy. Some of the highest peaks in this part of the Dolomites encircle this valley and the mountain scenery is spectacular. The itinerary makes the most of the local river, canyons and natural environments.
You will visit an unexplored gorge by kayak, which was formed by the flowing of the river over thousands of years, standing mighty and silent before your eyes!
After exploring the evocative canyon, you will return towards the base within the breathtaking landscape of Castel Cles and the amazing Dolomiti di Brenta.
For the first time, we're adding mountain biking to the programme which is such a popular activity. And what a place to enjoy on two wheels! You'll experience a lovely, dedicated cycle trail that runs alongside the river, guided by expert instructors.
