If you are a real #rocroiadventurer and you’re going, we recommend:

-         Rafting descent from Llavorsí to Rialp 14km

This is our star descent, the one made by almost 60% of our clients and the most popular among our most common rafteros.

This is the section that concentrates the fastest of the Noguera Pallaresa. The first one that we will find is the “La Lavadora” rapid, which is located in the river area in front of our facilities.

Then, at KM 5, the longest rapids of the Noguera Pallaresa begin: the “Quatre Llarg” is surely one of the longest rapids of all the rivers where commercial rafting is done: for 3km you will enjoy wave trains, from narrow and curlers that will make you feel the emotion of whitewater.

Finally, we will reach the most intense rapids, such as ‘La Sirga’, ‘La Isla’, ‘El cuatro Español’.

-         Rafting descent from Llavorsí to Sort or Montardit 16km – 20km

In this descent we will find all the rapids mentioned above plus the “Les Estissores” rapid which is just before reaching Montardit. The remaining kilometers will allow us to enjoy the natural setting that surrounds us.

If you come with young children or have never practiced rafting, we recommend:

-         Rafting descent from Llavorsí to Moleta 5km

In this descent we only find the rapids of “La Lavadora”, the rest of the section is calm waters to enjoy the landscape that surrounds the Noguera Pallaresa river.

One option that we offer to beginners is that, if during these 5 km they are comfortable and want to continue the descent to Rialp, they can follow the section without problem and pay the rest of the section when they return to our activity center once it is finished. activity.

Canyoning is also a good choice

Canyoning is another of our star adventure activities in Llavorsí. In RocRoi you will find different levels of ravines: those of initiation and those of perfection.

If you like canyoning, but have never practiced it:

-         Berròs canyon

This is the ravine of initiation par excellence, since the approach is short and easy. Once in the ravine, the rappels are short, numerous water slides that make it very fun and abundant flow. Ideal for kids and for those who want to start canyoning.

-         Upper Estaron canyon

Next, the ravine that we can also practice if we start this sport is the Estaron Superior ravine. We will find numerous slides that make it very fun and abundant flow.

-         Sant Pere canyon

This ravine is located in the Collegats Strait, a few kilometers from La Pobla de Segur. The Sant Pere ravine is made of conglomerate. The approach path runs through old steep paths that cross the gorge and will take us to the beginning of the ravine. A really beautiful and spectacular landscape to enjoy. At the head of the ravine, a few minutes from the start of the ravine, are the remains of the old Sant Pere chapel, located inside a cavity in the rock.

If you like canyoning and have already practiced it before:

-         Infern canyon

The Infern ravine is the most popular ravine of perfection among our clients.

Located in the heart of the Congost de Collegats, the Barranc del Infern will surprise us with its spectacular walls over 160 m high.

We will start by crossing the Noguera Pallaresa river as it passes through Collegats, and then a 30-minute climb up the slope awaits us before reaching the head of the ravine.

We will find a spectacular cave halfway where we can stop to take photos and you can hire the photography service that we offer from RocRoi for € 35.

-         Lower Estaron canyon

The Estaron Inferior ravine enjoys a spectacular high mountain landscape and natural pools that make it a ravine to enjoy.

This ravine has a high difficulty, but with the particularity that it has a short approach: numerous abseils make it a special ravine, not suitable for people with vertigo since the abseiling that closes the activity is 45m high.

A challenge for adventurers who want to discover new ravines.
