Canoeing

Vinebre-Móra d'Ebre


If you meet this stretch of the river you will meet some of the most unforgettable areas of the Ebre’s river, go into with a canoe through the stunning islands, like the Subarrec’s island, a natural and protected area, totally unspoilt. It’s an area that will transport you to another world. The vegetation surrounds you, the songs of the birds escort you and the water takes you. You will also be able to enjoy the Siurana’s river mouth, the old barge of Vinebre, which is sunken into the river, and the Pas de l’Ase’s river strait, which is composed by two big rock walls that end near the river. Due to the lack of awareness of this place, it’s easier to enjoy the birds’ fauna that will escort you during the entire journey.

VINEBRE

MÓRA D’EBRE

Visit el castell de Móra (Móra’s castle), of an Arabic origin, reconquered by Ramon Berenguer IV, and thereafter given away to Baronia d’Entença.

It is located on the top of the village, and it’s the perfect place to have a panoramic view of the river, of Móra d’Ebre and of a Ribera d’Ebre’s part.

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.
