Un grup de piragüistes navegant per l'Ebre

Benifallet – xerta

Past Benifallet the Ebro river is increasingly gentle and calm, in accordance with the landscape that surrounds it. But this trip still holds some surprises for adventurous souls.

Leaving Benifallet we can go up the Canaletes river a little, which comes from the Port to flow into the Ebro, and we will discover a wild and unique environment.

And the culminating point will be reaching the “Assut” of Xerta and Tivenys, where we will be able to live the unique experience of passing through the lock, a very intense moment if experienced from a small boat such as a kayak.

This is a little known route, which can be quite demanding depending on the day and river conditions, but very rewarding to do and with wonderful scenery.

The whole year


A slightly more demanding route, especially in hot weather, since the wind and the low current of the river up to the weir, make it harder for us to move forward.

It should be borne in mind that the lock only works during the motor navigation season (between March and October), and that outside of these months the kayaks will have to be loaded on land to cross the weir.

In the summer you must wear clothes and shoes that can get wet. It is better that the footwear is well held on the foot. If possible, you should avoid wearing flip flops, as it is easier to lose them and they are not as comfortable for doing the activity. We recommend wearing a t-shirt during the activity, to avoid possible sunburn and the rubbing of the life jacket on the skin.

During the activity it is important to bring water, mosquito repellent and sun protection (sun cream, cap and sunglasses). It is also recommended to bring spare clothes for after the activity.

It is necessary to protect electronic devices, such as cameras or telephones, and if possible, to tie the glasses, especially if they are prescription. At Enblau we have some watertight drum and ropes, but we cannot guarantee that we will always have them available.

Individual kayaks are comfortable, stable and very manoeuvrable. They are of the so-called “closed” or “sit-in” which gives them extra stability, and on winter routes they are the most suitable because they prevent us from getting wet from the waist down. They are our recommendation for people without experience, as they make it easier to learn to kayak.

Double kayaks are so-called “sit-on-top” or unsinkable. They are a little less maneuverable than the single ones, due to their larger volume, but they allow up to two adults and two small children to be carried comfortably. It is advisable that paddlers already have previous experience, but it is not essential. They are also suitable for large people.

In winter it is important to wear a thermal sweater or one that keeps the body warm and a waterproof jacket. We leave spraydecks to prevent your legs from getting wet with the splashes that can occur when paddling. At this time it is also advisable to have at least two changes of clothes; one to take during the activity in a waterproof bag and another to leave in the car for when we finish the activity.
