PaddleinSpain center is located in Llavorsí a small village in the heart of Pyrenees, with strong traditions and influence by the Noguera Pallaresa River. The river rises in the Pla de Beret, in the Aran Valley, barely a hundred meters from the source of the Garonne river. While Garonne takes direction to the Atlantic Ocean, the Noguera Pallaresa goes towards the south and its waters end up in the Mediterranean. The upper part of Noguera is one of the most beautiful and most difficult examples of the Pyrenean rivers.

The difficulty evaluation:

Upper Noguera (IV-V) - tough sections, high difficulty, Classic Noguera (III-IV) - variable difficulty depending on water volumes, Lower Noguera (III - III+) - the easiest and scenic part. Even though, Paddle in Spain prefers simplified qualifying of the locations in three levels : Beginers - Intermediate – Experts. Paddle in Spain´s team offers clients the best guidance in the area. The activities are always supervised by professional instructors, it means that the participants do not need experience to do the activity and all the Rafting descends are available for anyone. However, it's important known how to swim for this activity. The equipment that usually is provided by the center is: Neoprene, wet jacket, helmet, life jacket, neoprene boots. The participants always will need to bring: swimming suit and towel.

For sure the best season to do this activity is in spring time, it means April, May, June, where you can find rapids class III to IV and in some points class V (in Pyrenees). But you can run in Rafting until end of the Summer.

The idea of PaddleinSpain came out in 2006, in promoting the Catalan Pyrenees as a great holiday destination and with all white water sports spins around the river. The main concept was pretending to offer the point of encounter between kayakers, adventurers, people with the same interests and looking for the same concept - where to go for having a great and quality leisure.
