This is the perfect activity for true adventure lovers. You will experience the excitement of white water rafting combined with spectacular sightseeing as you paddle through the most fascinating spots of Pallars area and Noguera Pallaresa river, like Collegats gorge and L’Argenteria (which it is thought to have inspired the architect Antoni Gaudí to build the façade of Sagrada Família church). This trip includes a traditional Pyrenean lunch in a “borda pallaresa” (the traditional Lleida Pyrenean house). An afternoon snack will be waiting for you when you finally get back to our activity center. You will be able to restore energy while looking at the photos taken during the rafting tour, also included in this activity.

The Llavorsí-Collegats stretch is one of the most authentic parts of Noguera Pallaresa River for its rapids and stunning sceneries.
The first stretch (4 km long) is very quiet except for a rapid named "La Lavadora" (The Washing Machine, in English), which is the first grade IV rapid that you will encounter.
After “La Lavadora”, the river will get quiet again until km 5, where the longest rapids in Noguera Pallaresa are. The rapid called “Quatre Llarg” is surely one of the longest and safest rapids where commercial rafting can be done. You will enjoy 3 km of waves and curls that will make you feel the thrill of white water rafting.
You will then reach Gulleri Bridge (km 8) and encounter intense rapids such as “La Sirga”, “La Isla” and “El cuatro español”.
Once you arrive at Rialp Bridge (km 11) and Sort dam, the raft will be carried and you will cross “Campo de Slalom Aigüerola”. Afterwards, you will encounter “Les estisores”, “El pastís” and “La Víbora” rapids.
You will stop halfway through the route, in Baro village, to enjoy an authentic traditional meal in a “borda pallaresa” (the traditional Lleida Pyrenean house).
Afterwards, you will enter Collegats gorge. You will see L’Argenteria, one of the most spectacular parts of the gorge. It is said that it inspired the architect Antoni Gaudí to build the façade of Sagrada Família church. In this same spot, you will also have the chance to see Infern and Sant Pere gullies (a dream location sheltered by 100-meter cliffs) and to drink natural fresh water out of the Figuereta fountain.
Our shuttle service will be waiting for you there to drive you back to our activity centre, where you will be able to get changed, take a shower or have a drink in our bar while you look at the photos taken during the rafting tour.
