As we’re traveling on our 8-week road trip throughout northern Spain, we figured that it was time to do some river activity. We’re in the lovely Asturias region of Spain in the town of Arriondas. And our activity is (drum roll)…canoeing on the Sella river. The folks at Trip4Real scheduled our trip, and put us in contact with a great local company, Frontera Verde.
When anyone mentions Northern Spain, Asturias immediately comes to my mind. If nature is what you are looking for, the mountains are blanketed with green trees, sprinkled with rambling rivers. All of which kiss the coast and create gorgeous beaches and postcard photos. You can experience extreme adrenaline sports or just a float along the river. Of course you will want to eat and drink your way around the area as well. Don’t let its size fool you, Asturias is a small, but power packed autonomous community in Spain. Come along with us and Visit Asturias!
