Canoeing

Miravet-Benifallet


In this stretch, you will be able to enjoy the views on the Ccastell Templari de Miravet, which will be with us during the route. You will be able to, if it’s permitted by the river, go around the ruins of and old Arabian mill located in a picturesque spot, and of course you will cross the Barrufemes’ Strait, a strait where the water is paralyzed and you will be surrounded by two enormous walls that will make you feel minuscule.

MIRAVET

You can start with a visit to the Casc antic del poble de Miravet (The old town of Miravet’s village). Surely its slope and narrow streets, some of them near the cliffs of the river, won’t let you put away your camera even for a second. These same streets will let you to the old church, a Renaissance church built on an antique Muslim mesquite.

Of course you can also visit Castell de Miravet (Miravet’s castle), conquered by Ramon Berenguer IV of the Arabians and given up to the order of the temple, who extended it and built the castle that nowadays you can look at and visit.

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.
