un noi i una noia arribant a Miravet amb piragua

k&m: The Struggle of the Pontoners

This kayak route will take us downstream and through history, to one of the toughest periods that the Terres de l’Ebre endured. The landscape surrounding us will serve as a backdrop to discover the historical events and the stories of some protagonists who experienced the war up close. We will recall the Battle of the Ebro, the passage of Republican troops, and the struggle of the pontoners to keep the river crossing open. We will also remember figures like the Miravet writer and poet Roc Llop, a survivor of the Nazi camps in Gusen-Mauthausen.

This activity is carried out in collaboration with the historical guiding company Terra Enllà, specializing in the Spanish Civil War.

Móra d'Ebre

Visita el castell de Móra, d’origen àrab, reconquistat per Ramon Berenguer IV i, més endavant, cedit a la Baronia d’Entença.

Situat al capdamunt de la població, és el lloc perfecte per tenir una bona panoràmica del riu, de Móra d’Ebre i de gran part de la Ribera d’Ebre. Més informació al web de l'ajuntament de Móra d'Ebre


Pots començar per una visita al casc antic del poble de Miravet. Segur que els seus carrers costeruts i estrets, alguns d’ells a la vora del penya-segat que dóna al riu, no et deixaran amagar la càmera fotogràfica ni un segon. Aquests mateixos carrers et portaran fins a l’església vella, una església renaixentista construïda damunt d’una antiga mesquita musulmana. Més informació al web de turisme Miravet

També pots visitar el castell de Miravet, conquerit per Ramon Berenguer IV als àrabs i cedit a l’Ordre del Temple, que el va ampliar i hi va construir a sobre fins a construir el castell que, a hores d’ara, es pot veure. Més informació a la web del Castell de Miravet

Visita un dels 8 tallers de ceràmica, un antic art artesanal que continua en actiu gràcies a la feina dels Canterers de Miravet. Més informació al web de turisme Miravet


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.
