Hydrospeed on Brembo River

Swim between the adrenalin rapids of the river!

This sport consists in the descent of a river by swimming, with the help of fins and a special floating board, like a bob, called Hydrospeed. It is the youngest of the commercial river sports and certainly the one that puts you in greater contact with the river and the water element. After an initial briefing, where you will be explained the descent technique and provided the necessary material and equipment, you will begin the activity. Totally immersed in the river, you will ride the powerful rapids of the Brembo river. The guide will accompany you throughout the descent, indicating the best lines, but the real protagonist will be you. The leading of the river Bob is in fact entirely left to you! Hydrospeed is therefore the ideal sport for those who want to experience the river firsthand, practicing an adrenaline-fueled but safe activity within the reach of anyone, because previous technical skills are not required. A decent water level in the river is necessary to practice hydroseed. Contact us to be sure of the availability.
