The Farfa river is born among the beautiful and characteristic hills of Sabina, in Lazio.
During its journey towards the Tiber, just below the small town of Mompeo, it dug a deep and sunken gorge.
The place is so beautiful and characteristic that it has recently been declared a Natural Monument.
Our river walking begins near the remains of the old Mola, where some structures are still recognizable: the grinding wheels and the characteristic medieval bridge.
Once all the equipment has been put on, the walk along the riverbed begins. As you proceed, the walls narrow and rise, creating an extremely particular place characterized by small rapids and waterfalls. The central part is certainly the most fascinating and consists of a long corridor dug into the smooth rock and shaped by the flow of water.
Everywhere you are surrounded by lush vegetation. Unlike canyoning, there are no abseiling or demanding passages.
In short, River Walking is an activity open to everyone, even children and teenagers.
The only requirement is to love nature, adventure and desire to discover magical, secret and beautiful places.
