Félix from Zaragoza

This August we highlight the experience of Felix. Felix already had come with a friend and did the descent in 4 days. On this occasion, with his son they got a similar challenge in just 3 days.
They started from Vinebre, managed to reach the sea in just three days, taking advantage of daylight hours and camping on the banks of the river.
Felix told us that he saw the river different. And it is that nature is always different and this point is another attractive for the adventure activities.

So Felix has tested the descent of the Ebro in the 3 days version and that of 4. With its advantages and drawbacks, but experience always recommended the kayaking exerience in descent of Catalan Ebro. See you soon.

Grifols family down the Ebro in 4 days.

The Grífols are the chosen ones to share their personal experience in the month of july.

They chose to leave Vinebre and try to reach the sea in four days. In retrospect we might choose Garcia village as a startpoint to make the tour shorter. because precisely coincided with very low levels of flow and do something physically were carried in some sections, especially teenagers of the family.

However, the landscape and the environment and to be immersed in a rural setting and wild nature fully life experience as a family.

The best thing for them reaching the sea and arriving in Miravet. Worse, the weight of kayaks perhaps too loaded;-)

Congratulations: Pales de Sirga done !!!!

Mario & Sonia from Germany

As you know, each month we highlight one of the experiences in the Descent of the Ebro river. This June are Mario and Sonia who sent us some photos of their favorite section.

Here was the crossing in the Xerta lock. This step is like a boat elevator to exceed 7 meters above the dam would prevent to continue our march along the Ebro River. The duration of the operation is about 20 minutes and leaves us only 30 minutes from the beautiful village Xerta known for its oranges and lemons.

Mario and Sonia took the option of the 4-day stop in Miravet and Tortosa as key points because they wanted to take to meet the Templar castle and the castle of Suda respectively.

They talk excited about the section between Mora and Benifallet; food in the restaurants they stopped and as negative points some wind before reaching Amposta.

This may people from England, france and Deutschland in the Ebro river

From 11th may 4 people did the descent in the 5 day option.

The first couple to book it was a couple living near London, in spite she is french, and the second couple wanted to join the tour also in 5 days. The option they took was from Ascó to Móra (light first day and helping to cross the Ascó dam) in the first day.

The second day was from Móra to Benifallet. By far, this stretch is the most beatiful landscape in the banks of the river, but the low flood in the Ebro did it a bit tiring. The third day, they assure was the best one from Benifallet to Tortosa. And the fourth lead them to Deltebre in a very hot day. It was a pity that strong winds made impossible the navigation so we cancelled the tour during the 5th morning.

Hope to know about you quite soon and that you enjoyed the aquatic catalan experience.
