Rafting

The ravines and cliffs are almost irresistible to the most adventurous climbers, who also enjoy diving into the river Sella. They can also take a quad and circle and cross these streams of wild water, ascending to the most inaccessible areas and enjoying unforgettable panoramic views. During the spring months, adrenaline-lovers will enjoy navigating the rivers on large inflatable boats, as they face the noisy rushing waters.

Trail Running Center

The sportiest ones among you will undoubtedly enjoy the Trail Running Center (TRC), a permanent facility immersed in the heart of nature with a network of permanent itineraries, information points and even a warm-up area. With different degrees of difficulty to choose from, depending on a person’s fitness level, these routes also have the added attraction of passing through areas that are strongly linked to the history of Cangas de Onís, the Reconquista, and the beginning of the Asturian Monarchy.

Sport fishing

Those, on the other hand, who fancy a bit of fishing, have also come to the right place. Salmon and trout populate the waters of the area, making the season between March and July a paradise for lovers of the rod and line. For more professional fishermen, the first weekend of September is the Fiesta del Pescador (Fisherman's Festival) at the Puente Romano; those who want to practice this sport but prefer to return the fish to the river, can opt for this version too.
