This Weekend, I decided to do a kayak trip with good weather and taking advantage of the party that had. The route that I usually carried out at various points shorter.

The initial plan was to go alone from Asco and go down to Mora de Ebro, where I meet with the group of Lorraine and his hiking club, which performed the journey to Miravet. But al'arribar in arrears, there was no sign of that group or any other; so I go down to see if they took. It turns out to be so many people have the preparaments enraderir too much and they go later so we do not find.

I continue paddling downstream fluently as this stretch is fast enough and tried to make the changing currents of the river from side to side. Once past that Miravet and magnificent view from the river and knowing that I no longer find the group decided to continue Lorraine. I found a first group of about 10 caiacs de l'company Beniemocions, Benifallet later I got up to advance a 40 kayaks with people of all ages and sizes. The truth is that the river was so alive but the joy of the Zodiac was the only company that estorbava creating waves and angry staff; one of its customers even pulled the kayak.
Fi, Once in a Benifallet a brief stop for lunch and al'Assut call to see how the lock was. L’operari, very kindly told me that there was no problem that was full and could go whenever you want. The maneuvering of the lock to cross the AZUD takes about 30 minutes of preparation and is not open all year, so you should call ahead to confirm that everything is correct (Weir: 977473158). http://www.ebrenavegable.cat/

After lunch I undertake for me the slower the river where there is no power besides that afternoon and turned a wind bow wave that created a significant slowing down the progress of the kayak and even if I stopped paddling turned upstream. That section made me sweat even in Garbo al'Assut, where I entered the canal on the right that leads directly al'esclusa. Once I hit the wall in right then as left where the jetties where you can support scratchy and loud as the sun was quite asucarrat.
Within the anvil closed doors and is a strange feeling when you start with clear water when you remove the lid and wait a shower drain that is small and not s'emporte the kayak and me. Fi, when the level has dropped those feet is'obren doors that give way to the river as if you give way to freedom and return to row strongly. And then there Tortosa support ending the relentless sun of that afternoon of June and support the wind in order to stop me passing me im'obligava to be used in deep. This is a stretch too slow with little current and where it is difficult to orient oneself because the axis of the Ebro and the peoples of Aldover Bítem and lost amidst a landscape of beaches and river islands.

Fi, a sun estofat, Wind and kayaking with a distance of 61.74 km Ascó Tortosa a very interesting landscape.

This Saturday we made a trip to kayak in the area of ​​the mouth of the Ebro and the Isle of Buddha. Because the work we had to modify the plans we had to leave after lunch to make the route that can be done in three hours and we had to go to the 18.30 becoming a very interesting semi-nocturnal.

Move to kayak is probably the best way to get close to nature with a vessel. The slow pace with which runs the kayak to enjoy the quiet surroundings with absolute·mind, also be a fun and exciting approach to areas not accessible.

The route starts at the pier in front of the campsite there Aube where to begin the journey down the Ebro River mouth. Here we have to dodge dozens of lines of fishing rods that were stops. Shows that might be a good place to fish where there were even a couple of tents set·was. In the area where the river flows because we found a series of waves that complicate the journey. Here we turn towards the open sea to traverse the most difficult stretch of the route (the difficulty of the route depends on weather conditions and state of the sea in this section).

Once you reach the beach Migjorn we load the kayaks on hand a few feet to get into the great river arm that has no outlet to the sea while the sun s'amagaba. In Gola Migjorn She became night. It is a calm water area where you can enjoy the wildlife of the Delta in an even closer that day because the behavior of animals varies and silence conducive contact: ducks and magpies did not flee until there are almost over and the fish begin to jump in front of the kayak and there are even some who are shocked.

Once you ride this whole stretch of river connecting with the stagnant river Ebro which leads again to the point. An interesting path that leads us to navigate through three types of water and allows us to know and protected as wilderness beach outside the island of Buda. One 8,6 NM, és a dir us 16 km of route traveled in almost 3 hours with mild “storm”.

A beautiful route i 100% advisable, which must be considered before the state of the sea. It is also advisable to make a stop at the viewpoint Migjorn beach to see the gaps and make Delta wildlife sighting.

Here you can see where the track has changed the shoreline of the estuary located on the map on the track that we made about us 50 meters from the Costa. It has also varied considerably at the end of the Gola Migjorn.
