Asturias, the great province of outdoor adventures: the descent of the Sella River? It's already seen, it’s best to canoe-raft on the Cares River, are you in?
The Cares River is a tributary of the Devas River, flowing into the Cantabrian Sea and bordering the autonomous community of Cantabria. It is much shorter than the Sella and the Deva routes. Between the towns of Arenas de Cabrales and Trescares there are 10 km of distances perfect for rafting, and you will get to enjoy the wonderful landscapes, its spectacular nature and unforgettable places.
Rafting is an adventure tourism activity, which consists of the descent of a river, in this case the Cares river, on a pneumatic boat of great resistance, but we have wanted to innovate this, and make it more extreme, for that reason we incorporate the modality of canoe-rafting. It is a sport that allows you to enjoy natural spaces and be in contact with water in a very direct and fun way. You will feel like a true whitewater explorer.
Canoe-rafting is an activity never seen before that’s offered by us. Our canoes are designed so that anyone with or without rowing experience can descend this river of level III, safely. Haven’t we convinced you yet?
Before starting to sail the waters of the river there is a brief class about canoeing and we will teach you about the warnings on the situations that we can encounter on our route.
This adventure can be shared with your best friend, your partner, your son, even your mother. It’s the ideal water activity of teamwork to disconnect from the routine. The canoes have a capacity of two people, who sit inside, holding their feet to hooks, which makes it easy to keep the balance when we find waves. The activity is carried out under the supervision of a trained instructor who will guide and instruct us in a kayak throughout the whole tour.
We give you everything. All the necessary equipment will be delivered before the activity, this includes both the canoe and the helmet, the life jacket, the oars, neoprene suit, safety equipment and a qualified guide. That's why the only thing you have to bring, besides the desire of having great fun, is optimal water footwear, swimsuit, sunscreen and toiletries. We also include the transfer and the costumes.
During the descent you can enjoy the green and leafy views and the appearance of some other fish. To have a rest there will be a stop, where also for those intrepid ones who can’t be a still for a second we have a descent without a boat, that is simulating a fall of the raft. What is for sure is that this adventure is full of surprises!
Rafting is an ideal activity to enjoy outdoor tourism in a different way, for an original bachelor party, to enjoy a unique team building experience...
The season opens in the month of February and ends in June, although we recommend doing the activity in mid-March and early May, as the best time to fully enjoy rafting is in the thaw or after heavy rain or snow, where the river increases in flow.
The minimum age is 8 years old.
If you need accommodation ask us without any commitment, we have good agreements with different types of accommodation in the area of the descents.
*The minimum number of people per group is 4. This doesn't mean that you must be 4 people booking through the platform; It is recommended to ask in the first place if you want to book one or two places, since the experience could reach the minimum of attendees per group with other people.
