Our regular catamaran trip trough Sil Canyons lasts one hour and explores the deepest tectonic gorges of the north of Spain. The small draft of our boat allows us to get closer to the river bank to show you the unique species of our flora and even some wild animals that live on these Sil banks: roe deer, common buzzards, grey herons, wild boars…
During the trip you will be listening to almost forgotten legends, will see vineyards that only the expert eye of our captain will allow you to discover the most typical wines from Ribeira Sacra.
From the river we will also show you the monastery of Santa Cristina de Ribas de Sil, centenary chestnut trees, old wine cellars on the river level and an endless number of curiosities, like the rocks with extravagant shapes.
Guaranted departures with a minimun of 6 people. If the minimun required is not reached, we give you the opportunity to navigate at another time and/or date or proceed to refund the reservation.
We recommend flat shoes and warm clothing, because the thermal sensation when sailing drops at least 10 degrees.
WE DO NOT ALLOW PETS ON BOARD! Thera are outdated external plubications on the internet that say that we do, because we did accept them years ago.

We set sail from the “Embarcadero de Os Chancís” (Os Chancis´s Pier) in Sober. We recommend to be there at least with 10 minutes prior to the expected departure time of the boat, because in case of not being punctual the amount of the reservation will be lost.
To arrive to the pier you have to follow the road from Sober that leads to the “Embarcadero de Os Chancís” or look for it in Google Maps with this link .
Before arriving to the pier you will see a white sign that reads “Embarcadero de Os Chancis” beside the bar that opens in the summer evenings, continue this road with the car until you reach a little waterfall. There you should park in angle, and then continue walking down the stairs to the floating dock. There are 6 flights of stairs to reach the river, so, very much to our regret, the access is not suited to people with reduced mobility.
