A white water kayaking festival in Valsesia, with races, guided descents, clinics, films & more, details to come

After years of going to Valsesia, introducing paddlers from all over the world to the steep creeking delights of this prefect slice of Piemonte in Italy, Gene17kayaking will host a completely new white water paddling festival. This 30th May to 3rd June 2012 will be the first Valsesia River Festival, situated at the Campsite of il Gatto & la Volpe in Campertogno.

The Valsesia River Festival is for all White Water Paddlers, with open races with competitive classes, accessible Steep Creeking Clinics, Photo & Video Clinics too, and to top it all off, some great evening entertainment.
