----- Messaggio di Jim ------
After talking to you about kayaking in Italy we have decided to come and paddle in the Sesia valley this year.
Perhaps you will be able to help us with some river information nearer to our arrival time however for now some general information would be a great assistance.
We are planning to fly to Milano and kayak during the last week in May (25th to 31st). Do you think this is a good time for our trip based on the snow levels at the moment? It is hard to judge of course, but I think you will have a better idea than us.
Snow looks good across all of Europe this year so we expect better water levels for May this year than 2007. But perhaps it might be too high making rivers more like Grade V?
Also we are having problems finding accommodation on the internet. Can you recommend any good sites to find houses or chalets for rent in the region? We feel sure there must be plenty of inexpensive accommodation, the same as in other kayaking areas.
Perhaps you know of a good Tourist Information office who can help us? Or maybe a local kayak club who paddle the Sesia regularly might also be able to help? This might also be very interesting if people would like to paddle with us.
It would of course be fantastic if you were able to join us on one of our river trips but that might need a lot of luck?
However first we must find accommodation before we can confirm flights so this is the most important thing for us right now. Any information you can provide will be most welcome. Also if you have other ideas for accommodation in Italy we will happily consider it. Camping is no good, however, as we are flying and all of the gear is too heavy.
Ok, that's enough information for now. Thank you for all your help, we look forward to hearing from you.
Best regards from Jim, Colin, Brian & Nigel.
