A unique way to explore Seville, thoroughly enjoyable, your safety is paramount to them, single kayak or double your choice, locker to store your belongings and a sealable bucket for your phone, wallet etc that you can take on the trip. No prior experience necessary, the river has zero current as the main flow is now diverted around Seville so its like being on a lake. 10 out of 10

A very nice experience to go as a couple and in which you can see the city from another perspective. Highly recommended especially to people who like different activities

It was a great paddle in and out of caves and between rocks. Calm conditions made it super nice.
