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 legends almost forgotten, will see vineyards that only the expert eye of our captain will allow you to discover and will taste the most typical wine from Ribeira Sacra: the Mencía.
From the river we will also show you the monastery of Santa Cristina de Ribas de Sil, hundred-year-old chestnut trees, old wine cellars on the river level and an endless number of curiosities, like the extravagant rocks with the shape of frogs or the three monks…

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.
