Rafting on the Ara River
Our company is located in the town of Torla, municipality from where this wonderful activity begins. The section to be traveled is located between the villages of Torla and Broto, 6 km with a large gap and spectacular canyoning areas that provoke an exciting speed of water.
In the case of excess flow, for security reasons, the section to be carried out is Broto a Fiscal; they are 12 km of route of strong rapids and trains of giant waves.
The Ara is the last virgin river of the Aragonese Pyrenees. Since its birth in the Vignemale border massif until its end in Aínsa it has no prey. Navigating the Ara has a special flavor; It is a river that surprises us every day. It is a river that you should not let go and you have to take care of its descent, changing from one year to the next. The flow always varies. Its landscape, natural and sporting value is maximum.
It is in the first week of May when it breaks in the heat of spring, the thaw arrives and the flows are greater. May and June are the months of greatest fluvial activity. The point where the rafting begins is 1.100 meters high (Badina del Molino) to the Glera de Oto, to 780 meters. It is a drop of 360 meters in a distance of 6.000 meters in length.
The descents are always made with a safety canoeist.
