About the place:

To kayak already is an experience in itself, but what about going to a place where you will have some fantastic panoramic views of the saw of Montsant and Prades? The calm waters of the reservoir of Siurana are the suitable place to kayak for the first time. And for those that already dominate the art of rowing, it is a good excuse to arrive at the natural pool of Palla where you can enjoy a bath. On the way you can attempt to locate the antique mill of Miró totally covered by the waters of the reservoir and of which the walls only remain in foot until the height of the first floor. In the middle of the reservoir, impressive, the wall of the dam that halts the waters of the Siurana River, the main affluent of the Ebre on Tarragona’s territory.

With the Canadian canoes and the individual or double kayaks that you can rent at Canoa Kayak Sirurana, you can also try to find the best perspective of the small village of Siurana on one of the peaks of the mountains above you.

And before leaving home, you can enjoy of a bath at the reservoir or play Volley-Reservoir, a very autochthonous modality of beach volleyball of Cornudella de Montsant.

An excellent form of enjoying the water and the landscape in family!
