1. Tarragona: Ebro River Guided Kayaking Tour to Miravet
The starting point is the Móra la Nova jetty and we usually stop to have breakfast or swim (weather permitting) on an island near Benissanet ; then we continue to the emblematic Miravet: Crowned by its castle, of great historical value, especially in the time of the Templars, although of Arab origin. The current of the river rocks us downstream with the kayak and we will calmly enjoy the exuberant riverside vegetation, especially on the Galatxo islands and the area of the Iberian settlement of Castellet de Banyoles. Some curious contrasts that we will enjoy: We start at the foot of the castle of Móra de Ebro and we will arrive at the foot of the castle of Miravet . We leave from the murmur of the 2 bridges of Móra, to the foot of the Iberian settlement of Tivissa . The Galatxo island on departure and the Miravet islands on arrival. Departing from large bridges and arriving at the historic Miravet boat crossing still in operation, the only one that works without the use of electricity. Apart from the names of trees and different species of birds, we will surely learn what sorts are; what are "aubergins"; what points our Iberian ancestors chose to live; anecdotes of the Battle of the Ebro in the Civil War and of course our guides will inform you of where to eat, what to visit, where to rest, or local customs. It is, in general, a section that runs away from the road and this makes it particularly quiet and magical for a kayak, canoe or canoe route .
