Hotel Les Brases en Sort
If you like water sports in the Pyrenees of Lleida you will find unique sensations both in wild rivers and in calm water lakes. Lleida is the leader in Spain in adventure sports, and there are plenty of specialized companies with experienced monitors who offer you a wide range of activities as diverse as canoeing, lake canoeing, kayaking, hydrospeed, canyoning or water skiing , just to name a few.
Of all these activities, rafting is the most successful. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that La Noguera Pallaresa is one of the best rivers in Catalonia and Spain to practice rafting because it is one of the fastest . It is born at more than 2000 meters of altitude and after traveling 146 kilometers it empties into the Segre river.
Surely, you already know that rafting consists of descending the rapids of a river in a rubber boat, and that it is an activity that is always carried out in a group. The specialists of this sport agree that to start it is only necessary to have good will , bring a swimsuit and a towel, since the company organizing the descent provides the rest of the necessary material such as the neoprene suit, the helmet, the booties, and also health insurance.
Llavorsí, a good starting point
One of the oldest winter sports and adventure schools in the area is Roc Roi, specialized in organizing whitewater descents in the area. The routes are adapted to the needs of the clients, and one of the most demanded and spectacular is the one that goes from Llavorsí to Rialp , since in two hours about 12 kilometers of pure adrenaline are covered.
However, if you are accompanied by children or you are beginners and you prefer a smoother initiation, you can opt for the route that connects Escaló with Llavorsí, a descent of 8 kilometers.
And if, on the contrary, you are experienced sailors, you can dare with a whole day trip and leave Llavorsí to reach the Collegats gorge, 52 kilometers away. The most important thing is that you are aware of your strengths and that you follow the instructions of the professionals.
