DESCRIPTION

The Sella river is one of the most beautiful and clean rivers of the peninsula. Thanks to the descent of the river Sella by canoe you can enjoy its beautiful landscapes while having fun with one of the most spectacular activities of active tourism.

The Sella makes its way to the Cantabrico Sea, through the great mass of limestones of the Picos de Europa, carving a deep gorge on the western border of this important orographic unit. This large cleft, known as the “Beyos Gorge”, is the upper part of the river, which is only suitable for whitewater experts. In the lower part of the Sella, from Cangas de Onis to Ribadesella, passing through Arriondas, the waters are much quieter and it is there that has been developing an intense canoeing activity since 1951, when the first International Descent of the Sella was inaugurated .

The International Sella River Descent competition takes place every year on the first Saturday of August at 12:00 h. And more than 2000 people participate.

Located in the surroundings of the National Park of the Picos de Europa and ending at the fishing village of Ribadesella; The River Sella allows you to enjoy its 16 kilometers of descent by calm waters and without having any experience.

By the river you can make stops on the river beaches to rest, eat and take a bath.
