Wow, what a trip! Judith arranged for us a spectacular 5 day adventure Alto Tajo  in the most stunning river gorge with skilled and attentive guides. All equipment was supplied in good order for a five day journey down river and for camping each night in wonderful isolation on the banks of the Tajo. Edu and Anton supplied nourishing and delicious meals cooked on the camping stove every evening and sustained us with filling bocadillos for lunch! After initial tuition, we boarded our canoes and paddled through the glossy jade waters learning to negotiate short sections of class 1 rapids on the first day. Camping that night was cold (we didn't realise the temperature would drop; recommend a sleeping bag rather than liner!). Day two involved traversing class 1 and 2 rapids - very exciting and exhilarating! I elected to spend days 3, 4 and 5 in the raft and was joined at various points by other members of our group - Edu mans the raft like a machine!! he steered us through labyrinths and fast class 2-3 rapids with seeming ease and supreme skill. Occasionally we had to carry the canoes to a suitable spot to begin our journey (we were not up to class 5 rapids!!) and despite this being very hard work through undergrowth and up steep tracks, the result was always worth it; cool clear water, awesome views and the ride of a lifetime! At all time we felt safe in the competent hands of all instructors: Anton, Edu, Augustine and Manuel and fully supported by the wonderful Macarena who ensured we had blankets and food in abundance. Our top tip would be to ensure that there is definitely enough water on board for the whole party each day (one day we ran out), bring a sleeping mat as they are not provided and to ensure that everybody knows what the plan is each day before setting off - otherwise everything was just perfect. Thank you Judith and the team from Multiaventura - this really was the adventure holiday of a lifetime, hard work and exhilaration in equal measure, in a stunning and truly awesome location!!

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!

We have made reservation to Hotel Pessets (2 nights) and a half day rafting with RocRoi. Everything was perfect! The hotel was beautiful, the rafting was exciting. I would like to say thank a lot to Judith Perxés that took a very good care of us, helped me and answered all my questions with a great kindness. Thank you very much, Suzi, Nathan and the kids.

A terrific morning out for a paddle. Quick information before trip was very helpful. The guide was wonderful and very funny. Thanks for all help.
