Half-day rafting trip in the Ara river, northeastern Spain

Experience the wild waters of the Aragonian Pyrenees with AEGM-certified Julen guiding you along the Ara river.



1/2 Day

Mar, Apr, May




  • Ride the rapid waters of the Ara river.
  • Experience the stunning landscape as we descend the river.
  • End the trip with a delicious free picnic.


Join me on an adventurous rafting trip along the river Ara in the Aragonian Pyrenees. Enjoy some of the best rafting in the north-eastern Spanish city of Huesca.

We’ll follow the Pyrenees river that swings and bends around the national park in the Torla-Ordesa region. It runs through a spectacular landscape between the villages of Torla and Broto.

The wild river of Ara is the last virgin river of the Pyrenees, so expect a rush of adrenaline as we descend the wild waters. And as a professional AEGM guide, I will assist you to make the trip both totally safe and exciting.

There is the opportunity to select different itineraries for both the Ésera river and the Ara river in the Torla-Ordesa area.

After 2 or 3 hours navigating the choppy waters we’ll enjoy a free picnic.

The level of difficulty for this half-day rafting trip is only suitable for those over the age of 16 due to the descend. The characteristics mean that it is only doable in the spring season. This is when there is sufficient flow to be able to navigate along the waters.

Due to the nature of the activity, it is necessary for participants to know how to swim.

Reserve your place among the wild Aragonian waters in the Pyrenees and experience half a day of rafting along the river Ara.

About the guide

I was born in the Basque Country, where the mountaineering is more than a simple sport, is part of the local culture. Now, living in the Pyrenees, I enjoy leading people in the best canyons arround Ordesa and Monte Perdido National Park and Sierra de Guara Natural Park. Canyoning is not my profession, it`s my passion!
