A little bit of history…

The forefather of this ancestral activity was Dionisio de la Huerta and a group of boys who, at the beginning of the twentieth century and until the civil war, began to navigate with wooden boats.
After this parenthesis that was the civil war, it starts over in a sporty way and with other kind of boats, more suitable to this river.
Shortly after it became to be the International descent down the river Sella.
