Reasons to practice rafting in Murcia
# 6 Mastering teamwork
Rafting is an activity to enjoy as a team: with the family, with friends or with colleagues at work. Come with who you come to the Region of Murcia, do not miss the opportunity to enjoy this sport where the key is teamwork. You will have to coordinate to paddle and overcome all the obstacles that appear along the Segura River. Only if you are well blended will you get to your destination afloat.
# 5 Discover the Region of Murcia from another perspective
The nature of Murcia can be discovered, as usual, by hiking through the different routes that run through the region. But anyone does it. Why not enjoy it from a different perspective? From the river, you can feel completely immersed in nature and you will see things that would otherwise go unnoticed. The vegetation of the riverbanks, the fauna that comes close to the shores or the surprises that nature offers. Feel part of it all while you exercise and have fun in the river Segura.
# 4 Cross a unique protected area like the Almadenes Canyon
The Cañón de Almadenes is one of the most beautiful stretches of the Segura River as it passes through the Murcia region. In this protected area, declared a Natural Reserve, you will be able to observe different bird species that are emblematic of the place, such as the kingfisher or the gray heron, as well as other species of the river, such as the Galapagos or otters.
# 3 Enjoy the incredible nature of the Ricote Valley
After the Almadenes Canyon, the Segura River crosses this other area of the Murcia region. The Ricote Valley is a spectacular enclave in which you will cross some areas of calm waters, magnificent opportunity to refresh yourself with a deserved dip. In addition, wildlife also abounds here. You can see barbels, turtles, otters and different species of birds such as ducks and cormorants.
# 2 Set up your adrenaline
If this were just a quiet and idyllic walk along the Segura River, it would not be rafting. Emotion is what defines this sport. Therefore, between rest and rest, you will have to avoid rapids, rocks, trunks and even some small prey, such as El Jarral or El Menjú. Far from being dangerous, however, these small "difficulties" do nothing but add fun and provide some other soaking, more than necessary after the effort.
# 1 Escape the southern heat
Have we already said it? Rafting is, above all, refreshing. In the south of Spain the heat tightens during the summer, and sometimes that makes us consider staying at home instead of going out to enjoy nature. Big mistake. With this activity you will exercise, yes, but sweat will not be a problem since you will be continuously soaking. Whoever believes that summer can only be refreshing on the mountain is that he has not practiced rafting in Murcia.
