SUP in Rivers and Reservoirs

Comunitat Valenciana


The Region of Valencia is a pioneer in the practice of SUP in rivers; new types of stand up paddle boarding imported from the sea and which has been adapted by combining white water canoeing and stand-up paddle techniques. You will be able to enjoy the rivers from another perspective with this new sport, living a unique experience where you can navigate calmly over crystal clear waters and lush riverside vegetation or live the adventure of fast descent while standing, although it is also possible to descend laying down or kneeling.

At the moment, the only place where you can practice this new type of SUP on white water and which requires specific boards is in the Hoces of the Cabriel River where there are adventure companies that offer these services. However, if you are only looking to do SUP in calm waters while enjoying the landscape, you can also practice this activity in reservoirs, such as the reservoir of Benitandús, located near the Espadán-Mijares Natural Park.
