Rafting on the Ara river - Huesca
Come and enjoy the best white-water rafting of the peninsula on the Ara river!
Rafting is a sport and recreational activity that consists in descending a whitewater river with a pneumatic boat directed by an experienced guide. To be a high level rafting, the maximum capacity of the boat is 6 crew and the guide. In addition, with each group another additional guide will descend with a safety kayak in case that someone falls into the water.
The activity is carried out on the Ara river, a tributary of the Cinca, on its way through the municipalities of Torla and Broto at the foot of the Ordesa and Monte Perdido National Park. The river is born between the highest mountains of the Pyrenees (3.000 m) and flows to join the river Cinca in the Mediano reservoir in Aínsa. The river presents its natural flow, since it has not been dammed. Therefore, the level of its flow should be taken into account in order to carry out the activity.
The complete path of the activity is 7 km and begins in an urbanization near Torla, just after the most violent stretch of the river. The route starts with 1 km of wave trains to reach a beautiful stone bridge, where there is a capacity that with water forms a deadly slipstream, being necessary to stop and skip the section. Next, there is a sequence of class 4 rapids.
Later, you will find the "Puño" pass that gives access to the leafy and steep canyon with a steep slope of the "Foz de Torla". After several steps such as "la boa", where you will almost reach the canyon wall, you will finish the path in Broto, where a canyon pours its waters into the river.
The activity will be directed by a guide who will advise and explain how to practice the activity along the way.
Come and enjoy the most spectacular and exciting descent in white water of the Peninsula!
