What people are saying about Asturias, Spain

Recommendable !! Friendly, fast and attentive. We arrived at the last stop of the sella, and they picked us up practically as soon as we arrived, because each one has a rhythm and you call them to come for you. They give you your canoe, vest, paddle, a drum to store your belongings, and they give you a brief explanation of its use and the route.

Very good experience. We went because we had used this application on other trips outside of Spain to book excursions and we decided to book the descent here. They give good information, all useful and fluid. The best, the first 4 kilometers of the descent, which you do not share with any other company.

overall a fabulous day helped by a brilliant driver and guide - just a shame that the time on the mountains was shorter than we would have liked. We would have forefeited some of the time in Cangis if we could have had longer at the Lakes

Everything perfect and super beautiful !! highly recommended

Really fun adventure, great view and very friendly staff !
