Rapids, crosscurrents, and whirling eddies. The force of the Pyrenean rivers unleashed during the annual snowmelt period now attracts adventure sports lovers from far and wide. The tradition started with the former rafters, the original white-water experts, who would transport goods downstream every spring, together with the timber they used for making the boats.
Years of experience, state-of-the-art safety measures, high-quality equipment, specialist white-water sports companies operating in the area, and the major events and championships held here (the Noguera Pallaresa Rally celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2013), make the Pyrenees a benchmark for water sports destinations.
The specialist companies operating in the Pyrenees offer a wide range of water sports activities.
White-water options include rafting, kayaking, canoeing, hydrospeed, canyoning and river hiking, among many others. If you prefer calmer waters, you can try sea scooters, windsurfing, waterskiing, or underwater diving.
