Rafting in the Pyrenees and The Sierra de Guara (Spain)

 Description

Rafting is a fun and challenging activity that involves navigating a river, including white water sections, in an inflatable raft. The raft is steered by a specialized guide, while the participants row it forward. Our rafting trips combine gentle sections of the river, where participants can relax, take a swim and play in the water, with thrilling white water where the boat’s crew need to coordinate to maneuver through rapids and around obstacles. The maximum number of people on each raft is between 6 and 8, depending on the size of the boat.

We offer two quite different types of trip, depending on the force of the water encountered:

  • Family Rafting or  Level I (suitable for children aged 6-13). Trip length: approximately 2h.
  • Basic Rafting or Level II (suitable for everyone over 14). Trip length: approximately 3h.

Rafting. Requirements

  • No previous experience necessary, simply follow your guide’s instructions both before and during the trip. Good coordination between the members of the crew is essential to keep the raft on course.
  • Strength in the arms and legs is of secondary importance.
  • Anyone with a basic level of fitness can participate.
  • It is essential that participants are able to swim.

Location: Our most popular trips in the Pyrenees and the Sierra de Guara

The Natural Park and Canyons Sierra de Guara where we are based, (Alquézar), is bordered by the two largest rivers in the province of Huesca. The River Ésera is to the East, with rafting trips leaving from Campo and to the West we find the River Gállego and our rafting base in Murillo de Gállego.
