Rafting the Noguera Pallaresa

Rafting on Noguera Pallaresa

Although most people probably don’t immediately think of Spain when they contemplate adventure travel holidays, Catalonia offers some serious opportunities for the über-active traveler: sailing trips on the Costa Brava, scuba diving in the Mediterranean, canyoning, skiing and snowboarding in the Pyrenees, climbing and via ferrata routes, long-distance hiking, and… drum roll… white water rafting.

We sampled the rafting potential on an afternoon excursion on the Noguera Pallaresa River in the high Pyrenees and, as you can see in the pictures, it was totally awesome. Organized through Rubber River in Sort, the stretch we did ranged from grades 3 to 4, which means there’s a bit of potential to be thrown from the boat. The run was incredibly fun and there is a very cool surprise towards the end which literally made our hearts skip a beat.

HINT:
Marshall, Will and Holly,
On a routine expedition,
Met the greatest earthquake ever known.
High up on the rapids… AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

    I know I’m showing my age with the “Land of the Lost” intro, but I just couldn’t resist. The young’uns can follow the AHHHHHHH link to help improve their knowledge of the classics (before the cheesy remake.)

    By the way, how did all those Krofft Superstars videos get uploaded to Youtube? Somebody must have boxes of videos in their basement.
