Very popular with adventure enthusiasts is the town of Sort located in the Catalan Pyrenees about 4 hours from Barcelona. With a great location and stunning scenery, Sort offers a range of outstanding activities most of which are based on and around the Noguera Palleresa River. Visitors can negotiate a kayak downstream or take on the Noguera’s numerous rapids for a white water rafting adventure that is, perhaps, the best white water rafting anywhere in Europe. If that’s not enough action on the water, those looking for more can try hydro-speeding. Sort is also a great spot if you’re into canyoning with many opportunities to slide, jump, and abseil down a canyon.
