The activity will be placed in our center in Cap de Creus (Portlligat) it will be consisting in a half day tour paddling the coastline of:
Natural Park of CAP DE CREUS –
The Creus cape peninsula is one of the largest, protected, natural reserves in Catalonia (formed in 1998 by the Law 4/1998, 12th March, for the protection of Creus cape), with a total area of 13,886 hectares, divided into 3,073 of coast and 10,813 of land, a fact which gives it the distinctive feature of being Catalonia’s first foreshore natural reserve. With regards to the marine part, three areas of great underwater splendour are protected: Gros cape, Creus cape point (where the northern part of s’Encalladora island is protected in its entirety) and Norfeu cape. The spectacular geological outcrops are one of most significant features of the Parc Natural, with its complicated and beautiful forms which often cause the visitor’s imagination to get carried away. One sees images of real or mythical animals in the area (lions, dragons, camels, eagles, cats, rats…), despite the fact that it is the wind and the sea, and not the Gods, which have gone on shaping the geological landscape of the Creus cape right up to the present day with their incessant activity begun thousands of years ago.
And around this beautiful scenery we start a journey in our PaddleinSpain Centre Group – in Portlligat, a very small fishing village reached from Roses by following the signs to Cadaques.
