Live a magical canoe experience on the Tirino river



Trailer canoa sul Tirino Yotube

The Tirino is a river that has more to do with fairy-tale imagery than with a real place. Its waters seem so iridescent and crystalline that they seem to come from distant places, if not even unreal, and precisely by virtue of these characteristics it has been proclaimed as the cleanest river in Italy and among the clearest in Europe.
The Tirino is an unusual river for the Apennines, as it originates at low altitude and is fed by multiple springs: the etymology of the name Tirino in fact (from the Greek "tritano", or "triple source"), is a direct reference to the way in which the latter comes to light.
Originating from a long underground course, it flows into three different springs: Presciano, Lake Capestrano and Capodacqua.

Located in the heart of Italy, in the Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga National Park, in the Capestrano area, the Tirino river is the perfect place to spend a different day , in company and where you can carry out multiple activities: from canoeing to trekking, from excursions to mountain bike rides or picnics surrounded by greenery.
The canoe ride is essential, a an experience out of the ordinary, in which you can delve into calm and clear waterways with an ecological, silent, fun and affordable vehicle for everyone!

We offer you an alternative way to occupy the beautiful spring days or the sultry summer days, letting yourself be lulled in clear waters, surrounded by trees, mountain air, far from the chaos and frenzy of the city.

Canoa sul Tirino has always had the environmental issue at heart and actively works to care for and protect the places in which it is fortunate to operate. Respect for the territory is a priority for us that transcends the most important reasons of decorum and environmental hygiene: protecting it means first of all safeguarding such a complex and intricate crossroads of lives - animals, as well as plants - and promote their subsistence. As a part that is not extraneous to these balances, on which, indeed, our well-being strictly depends, we believe it is our duty to contribute to the health of the environmental ecosystem and take responsibility for it.

For this reason, Canoa sul Tirino promotes ethical and attentive tourism, and is committed to ensuring that all the activities coordinated by it are carried out with the utmost respect for the host territory and the fauna and flora that characterize it.
