Descent of the river Artibai in Kayak Basque Coast
We have prepared a perfect kayak route, the descent of the Artibai river in Ondarroa. A 2-hour activity that you cannot miss if you are thinking about practicing this sport on the Basque Coast.We’ll start in Errenteria neighborhood and finish on the bay. We will take advantage of the tidal current to cover the 4-kilometer descent, it will be a river adventure!Starting from the upper part of the river gives you the opportunity to visit Aieri marsh, where we will make a stop to learn about this wetland and its ecosystem. Aieri is considered a Special Protected Area, included in the Natura 2000 Network as a Site of Community Importance in the Atlantic Biogeographic Region. This section of the descent gives us the chance to observe different birds that inhabit the marsh.As we continue down the river, we will enter a totally different landscape where the urban landscape will gain prominence. Finally, we will arrive on the bay where we will find Saturrarán beach and the cliffs of the Geopark in front of us. We will take a dip and finish the activity on the Arrigorri beach.
