I have been looking at the Pyrenea on my map and think I might want to go there to run the creeks. I only one question

Has any one been there? How is it? When is the best time for creek boating? Where to go? Do I need to bring my kayak or can I buy one over there? How is it logistics wise? Is it best to buy a car? Where to sleep? What to eat? Is it OK to drink the water? Doos ane won speek Ernglish? How are the rivers? If I miss an eddy will I roll down the whole mountain? Can I get back up?

Thanks for any answers?

I think that it should be very handy to speak a little bit of French or Spanisch (depents of you go to the French or the Spanish site) most of the people right there speak worser English than i do.
I've never kayaked there so for accomodation, i dont know. But let me know something.
And enjoy the water.

Consult the book: whitewater pyrinees, a lot of information.

Buy a car? Very expensive. A used car in good condition 3000-6000 eur.
No problems with the water. Spain and France are not in the African continent.
A lot of hotels, restaurants.
You can buy all kayaks that you can with your money. All the marks: WS. dagger, pyranha, robson, necky,


Mejor hablar un poco de español o francés. Quedas mejor. Tio que no te vas a Uganda.

It is not a problem. In general everybody of the kayak's world knows some words in English.

The best rivers in Spain are: Gàllego, Ara, Esera and Noguera Pallaresa.For creek: Cinqueta and high parts of Noguera, Ara and Esera. And some affluents.

Ask in the raft companies. Very friendly with the kayakers. UR 2000, Rocroi, Eseraventura, Aguas Blancas etc...........

Regards. Don't worry.
