Discover the Deva river with our canoeing tour! This is the ideal activity to share with family and friends, as anyone from age 6 can join and no previous experience is needed. This river divides the regions of Asturias and Cantabria, so you will be able to enjoy the wild nature and magical landscapes that surround the area. Thanks to the abundant flow of the river, you can expect a calm trip and row at your own pace, to make the tour more enjoyable.

Tour programme
- Preparation:
We meet at our base in Unquera. There, you will meet our team and will receive a briefing on the canoes, the river, and how to paddle. We will also give you a small picnic that you can enjoy during the tour. After that, we will head towards our starting point, either Panes if you do 12 km or Buelles if it is only 6 km.
- Tour:
Once we arrive to the starting point, you will hop on your canoe and start descending at your own pace. If you come at 11 a.m., you also have the possibility to be accompanied by a guide! During the trip, you can always take a break from paddling and jump in the water, eat the picnic we give you at the beginning, or simply admire the wild scenery surrounding the Deva river.
- Return:
After a calm descent, we finish the tour in Unquera. The time to complete the tour varies, but it is not less than 3 hours for the 12 km; and 2 hours for 6 km. Our team will be waiting for you to drive you back to our base after a thrilling experience!
