Zaragoza has a wide touristic offer including historical monuments since the roman ages, an active cultural life and interesting «tapas» gastronomy… just as many other Spanish cities do! It is the Ebro River who makes “its capital” unique, and paddling on kayaks through Zaragoza’s historical center is definitely an unforgettable experience which combines monumental sights with great fun for everybody….
From the medieval Stone Bridge, whose foundations are dated from the roman age, to the modern EXPO 2008 site, the History of the city is written along its singular river. We are willing to share it with you, explaining where the crossing boat or the wooden footbridge laid before… or which of the 9 bridges passed by in your paddling trip is less prepared to stand a flood.
We love Zaragoza and explaining its monuments, same as we love splashing, swimming and laughing on our kayaks! During the 2h of fluvial navigation we will have time for talks and playing, and even to have a snack on the most exclusive “terraza” of the city center: A fluvial island or mejana just downstream of the Stone Bridge… Get ready to feel envied, the river is the best place to be during a summer afternoon in Zaragoza;-)
2h long “Bridges of Zaragoza” starts at the “Parque del Agua Luis Buñuel” and finishes at “Azud de Vadorrey” dock. 3h30′ long «Fluvial conquering of Zaragoza» starts at Playa de Juslibol, upstream Ranillas Meander, to enjoy the natural values of its riverine forest and its definetly bird-friendly island. This longer descent is programmed and open to individual travellers during Saturdays’ mornings and Thursdays’s evenings from June to September.
Groups of 8 or more people might book these trips any day from April to October, please contact us to check our availability on the requested dates. Prizes for exclusive descents range from 45€ to 26€ per person depending on the size of the group.
