Rafting is the river adventure sport par excellence: shooting the rapids in an inflatable raft for four or more persons. The helmsman steers while the rest of the crew have to paddle faster than the river currents as they try to control the descent. This is a unique experience, particularly thrilling during the snowmelt period in May and June, when the force unleashed by the high water level is so strong that at some points you hardly need to paddle between one set of rapids and the next. The 60 kilometres of navigable white water and the many specialised companies offering safe conditions make the Noguera Pallaresa one of the best rivers in Europe for white-water sports. Numerous other water sports can be enjoyed here, including canoeing, kayaking, riverboarding, canyoning, among many others.
