Canoeing

Benifallet-Xerta


You can go into the Canaletes’ river through its mouth to the Ebre. If you go upstream a few meters you will soon discover its hidden beauty. You can then continue down the river with the canoe and live the experience of passing by the lock of Xerta. Let yourself flood by the beauty of this stretch that goes by from the lock, to the village of Xerta.

BENIFALLET

Visit the Coves de Benifallet (Benifallet’s caves), in particular the Cova del Dos (The Two’s cave) and the stunning Cova Meravelles (Marvellous’ cave). They can be visited by foot with any problem, and you will have a guide who will explain to you all the curiosities.

Recommendations

During the summer season, you should wear comfortable clothes and footwear that can be soaked. It would be better if the footwear is very tight to the foot. You should avoid wearing flip-flops as it's easier to lose them and it's not comfortable for canoeing.

During the activity it's important to bring water, anti-mosquitos, sun lotion of a higher SPF rating and a cap. It's also recommendable to bring clothes for changing after the activity.

If it's your first time, we recommend you to take an individual kayak, as it's easier to drive than the double kayak.

If you want to bring your children with you but you think that they are too young, there's no problem at all as in the double kayaks there are a couple of central sits for the younger kids. This way, in the same kayak can sail two adults and two kids.

During the winter season, it's important to bring a thermal sweater or one that keeps the corporal heat and a waterproof jacket or a raincoat. We will lend you some waterproof fabrics so that your legs don't get wet with the splashes produced by the row.
