This nautical activity of mountain rafting has positioned itself as one of the extreme and emerging experiences in outdoor sports. It is an individual activity in which we feel that we are part of the river. Hydrospeed has carved a niche among the emerging outdoor activities as an intrepid experience only with the need of a water sled and the power of the river. Thus, it has become one of the outdoor practices that have burst with more force in recent years. For this reason, RocRoi offers you the possibility of doing this outdoor activity in fast rivers, feel part of the river and live an unforgettable extreme experience!
This is an individual adventure activity aimed at people in good physical condition who wish to live an extreme experience of descending the river. For its realization it is necessary to use an aerodynamic board that you must place on your chest and on which the descent is made in rough waters. As if it were a surfboard cut in the middle, it is made of polyurethane and is usually one meter long and 60 centimeters wide.
The best areas to practice hydrospeed in Catalonia
Llavorsí is one of the most popular destinations for the practice of hydrospeed in Catalonia. From the base of RocRoi in the Noguera Pallaresa, one of the leading companies in southern Europe in the organization of outdoor sports experiences, we offer this activity with different routes. On the one hand, we have shorter routes starting from the base to the Moleta (3 km) and the route that goes from the base of Yeti Emotions to Moleta (4.5 km) to other longer ones like the one that also goes from Llavorsí to Gulleri with a route of about 7km to cover in 2 hours.
Among the different routes is the original route of 9 km from the base of RocRoi to the Illa, a place where the Noguera Pallaresa forks and creates a small island between the two branches of the river. This extreme activity is also offered with gastronomic service, so that at the end of the descent you can recover your strength enjoying a barbecue. Thus, the experience is even more rounded.
In addition, being an activity led by a specialized technician, you can enjoy the experience with the guarantee of living a safe and fun experience led by a specialist trained in rescue work and outdoor adventure sports activities.
On the other hand, beyond the rapids in the area of Llavorsí, the river waters in Catalonia offer other alternatives to practice hydrospeed in descent. One of them is the Olympic channel of the Segre river, in La Seu d’ Urgell.
In addition to the shorter sections for the less experienced in the practice, there are other sections of initiation for all those who have our first contact with the water sled and want to learn how to use it. Without leaving the Noguera Pallaresa, in Sort there are stretches that meet these characteristics.
