Cangas de Onís: Sella River Canoeing Adventure

1. Cangas de Onís: Sella River Canoeing Adventure

Start your Sella River canoeing adventure on a 500-meter practice stretch before getting to the good stuff in Arriondas, the most heart-pumping fun you’ll find along this river. Continue on for another 8 kilometers to Toraño or the extra 15 kilometers to Llovio, depending on what option you’ve selected and how much of the beautiful landscape you want to experience. During the summer, these sections don’t have as many rapids or canoe traffic. If you’re with family, the first section from Las Rozas to Arriondas, which lasts about 1 to 2 hours, might be the perfect stretch for you during the summer months. During the spring, this stretch is more for those seeking adventure.

What people are saying about Asturias

It was very enjoyable and informative journey with the lovely knowledgeable driver. If she was not there we would not be able to know certain historical facts though would have enjoyed natural beauty. Thanks to her. I will certainly recommend my friends and will like updates to be sent to me for any such excursions.

I enjoyed this trip. I got to see things I wouldn’t have seen otherwise. I am traveling without a car, so it was the best way to see the mountains. It is a little bit expensive considering lunch and the cable car are not included. But, I still enjoyed a full day of sightseeing.

Yes it's wonderful. May be the trip duration could be more and giving more time on the top of Fuente de. But The view and experience at the top is beyond explanation. Gabriella is very knowledgeable and explained in details.

Gabriela ha sido una excelente guia, súper responsable y muy explicativa con cada uno de los puntos que visitamos. La experiencia de todo el tour fue excelente, lo recomendaría y lo volvería a hacer sin dudas.

The Esmeralda guide and the driver J Carlos are phenomenal. Fantastic explanations and very attentive at all times to the group. Really, it is highly recommended.
