Reaching the Gordana valley, we will feel like going back in time hundreds of years for the few houses, almost all in stone, that anthropized it and we will reach a very small village. We will park in a meadow just before the village, where you will receive helmets, life jackets and the wetsuit that we will wear putting on only the pants, tying the wetsuit jacket on the hips in order to avoid to suffer the heat, during the first part of our excursion.
We'll walk through the village and follow a cobblet path in the shady forest that quickly will leads us to the stream (15'), which we will wak up-stream, often walking in the water, crossing it repeatedly, always on poorly still and even slippery pebbles, when wet and covered with algae, therefore constantly paying attention, until you reach the canyon (30').
Here we'll wear the wetsuit jacket and the life jacket, to immerse ourselves in the fresh and crystal clear waters of the first of the pools set among the rocks that we will swim through. From here on we will find ourselves constantly in the shade, often swimming, but the wetsuits will keep us warm even from the fresh wind blowing between the walls of this canyon of very high geological interest. We'll admire stones of various types and different colors, which create a unique setting: almost the entire range of stones from the local Apennines. Where the light of the sun, which barely penetrates the vegetation above if not in the central hours of the day, creates light and color effects worthy of a master of photography. We'll continue about 1h in the canyon admiring the succession of different colors and shapes of the rocks, and then walk back along the same route: the canyon has no other exits.
At his end we'll have our "sustainable Picnic" with typical products, local specialties, biologically grown in the area. After the picnic we'll go back to our cars where we'll have the towel and the change of shoes, socks and swimsuit, together with the clothes.
