The Noce River is definitely one of the most interesting natural areas at an international level for river sports: The difficulty of the river, the length of the navigable part of the river and the pleasant scenery that surrounds it, are all particularly striking and well known. It rises near the Corno dei Tre Signori (3360 m), in the Ortles-Cevedale mountain group and after a few kilometres it forms an artificial lake called Pian Palú. It then continues onwards through the entire valley, as other streams flow into it such as the Noce Bianco, the Vermigliana and the Rabbies. It continues to alternate amongst rapids and decreasing currents, the noise of the waves as they break amongst the rocks and the soft murmuring of the water that in the calmer areas almost seems to caress you. Various activities are in fact tied to the Noce River: rafting, fishing and the bicycle path that runs alongside the river almost its entire length.
