“Great sea kayak trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2011

I'd like to share my impressions of the kayak trip we had with PaddleInSpain.
We had absolutely fantastic time - the weather was perfect, the scenery beautiful, the guide friendly.
I want to thank you for the great advice about the weather forecast - it was indeed correct on the eltiempo.es site.
I want to thank Narcis for being such an excellent guide. We both are experienced paddlers and he took it into account and gave us more of what we wanted - narrow passages, waves, views - everything without even asking! It's like he knew just by looking at us!

“A+ Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2011

11 of my roudy friends and I went on a 3 hour kayak and snorkling tour off the northern coast of Spain (Tamariu). The route was beautiful, the guides were attentive and made sure we had fun and were safe and the equipment was in good shape. The snorkling isn't great in this part of the Costa Brava, but it was still fun. And the kayaking was perfect. I would definitely recommend this outfitter and this run. And the town of Tamariu was postcard picturesque too. You don't really need to bring much with you other than closed water shoes. Sandles aren't a good choice for the rocks, etc.

“Custom Tour Spain”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2011

I truly enjoyed the Spain trip to Madrid, Valencia and Barcelona this May. The scheduled tours were great, since the rate of the Euro was so high it was nice that those tours were already included in the package. We had a splendid time, the tour guides were the best, Carmen went over and above as a guide, she is definitely the best.

I thought I was going to be disappointed because we didn't get to ride the high speed train but the bus's were so comfortable it really worked out. The flight plans were on time, we were able to adjust to the timezone easier (still adjusting). Once again I say thank you for a well thought out planned trip.

I love the Flaminco Opera and the tour of Montserrat as well as Toledo.

“Paddle in Spain, Multiaventura, Alto Tajo kayaking - fabulous, awesome, wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2011

Well organised trip, led by skillful and attentive guides through the most stunning river gorge! Remember to take a sleeping mat and a thick sleeping bag otherwise cold and uncomfortable nights await! Hard work, exhilaration and stunning beauty are in abundance on this five day kayaking and rafting adventure on the Alto Tajo. All tuition, equipment and food is supplied but remember to ensure there is enough water to last the whole group for each day - running out can lead to problems! The guides all speak English at different levels so a fair competency in Spanish was a definite advantage. Would highly recommend this trip to any family or group - it's a challenging, awesome, fun, exhilarating, stunning, exciting, adventure!!!

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2011

The aim was to provide three adolescent boys with a grand passion for kayaking and a need to practice their Spanish with an unforgettable holiday. We received a superb and flexible service from Paddle in Spain who put together a package including accommodation, equipment and an inspirational young sportsman to accompany them on the river. The trainer supplied by Roc Roi could not have been more enthusiastic, the equipment (from RocRoi and Yeti Excursions) was of good quality, and we were booked into an impeccable campsite (Borda del Pubill at Ribera de Cardos). The receptionists at the campsite and Roc Roi were exceptionally welcoming and went to great lengths to ensure that a good service was provided, including organising horse-riding to ensure that we received a discount. Minor inconveniences were experienced by the travel required from the campsite (however the cleanliness of the showers, toilets and swimming pool more than made up for it; other campsites closer to the centre were said to be grubby by those staying there) and by the need to schedule the sessions around the river. I highly recommend Paddle in Spain and will be requesting their services again next year.
The supervision, including safety, was superb. This attraction is suitable for those with a certain level of kayaking experience as the free-style boats require a certain amount of skill; more stable inflatable boats are available for those with less experience wishing to descend the river, although rafting is probably a better option for a family wishing to have a one-off adventure. Families with younger children would be advised to kayak on the lake (upstream from Llavorsi), which was a pleasurable experience, but ask Paddle in Spain, they'll fix it for you!
