Swimming Pool and gym
Forte Sorgnano offers several possibilities for the people who wants to have a good time making a little of physical activity. From the swimming pool to mountain bike riding, from ping pong to gym continuing with the football field, volleyball field and bowling green up to the the opportunity to walk along the local trails. Several mountain bikes for adults and children are available free of charge for guests. The gym is located in a gazebo built in glass windows with a beautiful view in the valley and the surrounding hills. The pool (size 7 meters x 14 meters) is open from 1 May to 31 October, is equipped with deck chairs and umbrellas. Respect for nature led us to not disrupt the landscape, but to adapt to it and from this conviction, the pool has found a place for beautiful scenery and ease of access.
Outdoor & Team Building

Rafting, Hydrospeed & Kayak
An exciting activity for all which doesn’t require any particular skills or certificates to partake in the activity in complete safety. The rafts are inflatables built especially to resist the power of the river, reinforced and divided into 2 separate air chambers. The rafts normally carry 6 (min. 2 max. 7) “passengers” and the guide.
This is a new discipline that will excite you. On board is a kind of bob snow studied to deal with the descent of the river and using their fins as “engine”, you’ll have completely immersed in water. It is not difficult, just follow the instructions that guide you impart before and during the trip. You will learn so even amusing developments such as surfing, the candles, the Eskimo and … the rest is to be discovered!
The kayak comes from the Eskimos hunting boats, and faithfully repeated, with modern materials, a model of at least 4000 years old. The shape of the sea kayak is still very similar to that Eskimo, while the models from the river are shorter, rounded and manageable but still very similar. The kayak is used while sitting within the cockpit, oval hole of about 40×80 cm. And closing the space between the person and the Cockpit with splash guards, plastic or neoprene, to prevent the entry of water. The splash guard can be easily removed in case of need, and for safety reasons should not be in any way secured to the kayak.

Bike and cycling holiday in Umbria
A cycling holiday, or even a weekend biking trip, offers you the chance to get to know a local area, and to experience the multitude of colours, fragrances and emotions that it offers. It gives you the opportunity to flavour adventure, to finally reach the top of that arduous climb and enjoy the wonderful views from the summit, or the ancient hamlet lying on the other side. A cycling holiday provides you with the opportunity to observe the fine detail of a region, and to feel at one with those places you pass through, as you leave behind the speed, stress and superficiality of modern living.
Cycling is an ideal way of visiting a chosen local area, as it gives you the opportunity to get a true feeling of a place, to discover its spirit, and to leave the stress of modern life far behind. Umbria, in turn, with its hills, its rivers and streams, its history and its ancient hilltop villages, provides the ideal terrain for such exploration. Thanks to its varied landscape, it caters for all types of cyclist, and its relatively traffic-free roads, the hospitality offered by its hotels, restaurants and guest houses, the welcome given to visitors by local people, and its genuine local foods and wines, make it the ideal place for a relaxing cycling holiday.
The bicycle provides the visitor with an unhurried way of exploring the region which is perfectly in keeping with the historical character of Umbria and is a means of transport that gives you the opportunity to see the region in all its beauty. Happy cycling to one and all!
