20 Years of experience!  [1999-2019]


The descent of the Sella is one of the most fun and rewarding adventure activities you can practice in Asturias. The orography that surrounds us allows to carry out activities to the measure of the traveler who does not conform to being a mere spectator.

We include the transfer from our facilities in Ribadesella (Asturias) to Arriondas and the subsequent return and, if you stay in one of the rural accommodation with which we work we will look for you not have to move your car.

If you want to lower the Sella, we are located in the center of Ribadesella (near the tourist office) and the area of the beach where you have free parking in front of our headquarters and nearby:

  • Street Marquesses de Argüelles 26.
  • Calle El Pico 7.

It is a leisure-sport activity during which you will be able to enjoy the scenery, stop to take something in the bars that you will find on the banks of the river, and enjoy the activity with friends or family.

Lowering the Sella in Canoa is an activity that can be carried out during most of the year and for which special physical conditions are not necessary.

Our client profile is the one that seeks to disconnect from the routine, with the desire to have fun, to see special landscapes and to interact with the natural environment in a respectful way.
