The Pallars Sobirà, and specifically the Noguera Pallaresa river, is a unique location to live outdoor experiences and enjoy adventure sports for all audiences.
The Catalan Pyrenees have always awakened a call for adventure sports. The Pallars Sobirà, and specifically the Noguera Pallaresa river, is a unique location in the Catalan Pyrenees environment that provides visitors with great mountains and rivers for activities such as rafting or canyoning. These extreme sports allow you to live a unique and remarkable experience for a lifetime, and Catalonia has several top locations to enjoy these activities.
The town of Llavorsí, in Lleida, is the epicenter of Catalan rafting. Through the river Noguera Pallaresa, you can get on the boats for group activities that reach municipalities such as Sort, Rialp or Collegats. In the RocRoi center of Llavorsí we offer different rafting experiences, according to our levels of experience or the objective we have.
What rafting descents can be done? From descents of 14 kilometers to Rialp to 52 kilometers to reach Collegats. Although for beginners there is a 5-kilometer descent down the Pyrenees river to Moleta, ideal for beginners as a first contact before daring with experiences of longer duration and route.
The flow of the river Noguera Pallaresa, the location and the natural environment, make Llavorsí one of the national capitals of rafting and not only an outstanding destination in Catalonia, but throughout Spain. But rafting is not the only thing. Canyoning can also be practiced in the Catalan Pyrenees, and our base in Llavorsí is an example.
The most iconic place for this adventure activity in Spain is the Barranco de Berrós, in Lleida. It is known for being one of the easiest and most accessible canyons in the territory, but at the same time it offers a different and unique experience to the rest. If you want to practice this sport in this same canyon, do not hesitate to contact us at the RocRoi center in Llavorsí. You can also access a wide offer with the Estarón canyon, the “Infern” or the Gurb canyon, and you have the option to book an activity with exclusive guide.
In Huesca, another emblematic place for this adventure sport is the Formigal canyon. In the Aragonese Pyrenees there are many places to practice canyoning, in the adventure center located in Murillo de Gállego. If you are looking for a family experience, this is the best option.
If you are far from the Pyrenees, canyoning can also be practiced in southern Spain. We recommend the Verde river, in Granada, a canyon that leads you to crystal clear waters in a journey of 4 to 5 hours. In Cuenca you can also find the canyon of the Chorreras, which allows you to jump between the stones of the Cabrel river.
