Start time is always 9.45am, we are generally back to La Mariposa for lunch at 1.30ish.

As we need minimum numbers for this event, we have set dates. If they don't suit your itinerary, please get in touch, we might be able to add a date in for you! If you have a large enough party that wants to do it, we might be able to fix a date for you especially!


Our kayaking experiences are held on a serene & calm lake which has some fascinating topography, surrounded by pine forest hills and some aquatic cave formations that are only accessible from the water. 


A leisurely event great for all ages in a stunning area of natural beauty, perfect for enjoying the sunshine with the rest of your clan before enjoying a leisurely lunch (and a well earned G&T ) back on the terrace at La Mariposa.

prices & Tour Info

We operate this event on the Embalse de la Cierva reservoir, translating to "Doe's Basin", it's about 25 minutes from La Mariposa..

This is a perfect activity to enjoy with your family and friends, the lake is in a very scenic location and the water is very gentle. We get ready, choosing and fitting our lifejackets before leaving and then we leave in our mini-buses and head in the direction of Mula, a town below the Embalse. (The Embalse is elevated above the town behind the Castle) Once there, we will suit up and go through our safety talk and tuition.

Into the kayaks and out on the cerulean waters of the lake. Admiring the pine covered banks and the cool water. You'll get to explore the lake and it's inlets by kayak with our guide and monitor. Chatting and learning as you go. 

If you're lucky, you'll get to see some large water birds or maybe a terrapin that calls the lake home. 

About halfway through the activity, you'll get the chance to enter a cave - Water level dependant - and disembark for some rock jumping if you so wish. 

Returning to the open water, you'll start paddling for the finish point as you'll now be feeling the activity in your shoulders.

Once back on terra firma, you'll get a few moments to explore the shoreline while the kayaks are loaded back up, before returning to HQ where you can make the most of our changing facilities and enjoy your Meal.
