Once we arrive at the river bank, we will change clothes and start to descend the river. The descent will be through natural slides, jumps and abseiling. We will cross caves and crystal clear pools.

On the way, we will see many aromatic plants, old lime kilns, mines, and we will probably see wild Iberian goats, ibex.

At the end of the activity, we will enjoy a snack with a refreshing drink.
