Summer is a good time to play sports in magnificent environments. It is an option for which many people are opting for the greater desire to be outdoors as long as possible after confinement by COVID-19. Spain is also a good destination in these cases because there are many places where you can practice sports . In addition, the advantage is that you do not have to be an expert athlete because there are options for all levels and preferences.
Galicia is a community that offers many alternatives to do sports and in dream environments. For example, among the activities that can be carried out is rafting and kayaking .
They are sports that are practiced in waterfalls and gorges such as those of the Barbanza, Xalls or Barosa rivers, which are also another ideal environment for other sports practices, including canyoning . To these options, swimming and climbing are added .
Within the Aragonese community, the province of Huesca can be more than taken into account for this type of vacation and, specifically, areas such as the Sierra de Guara . Precisely, this location is the ideal place for canyoning , and is also the favorite of fans and lovers of this sport, who consider it to be the best place in Spain.
The routes can be done on foot and swim , with itineraries that can even be done with children . Other alternatives in this area are hiking for which there are different routes, as well as cycling because it is also an ideal area for cycling.
Continuing with the North of Spain, another option is Lérida with the Pallars Sobirà region . Here you can do numerous activities, being difficult not to find one that you like.
The options range from horseback riding or hiking to climbing or mountaineering in an environment like no other because we are in the Aigüestortes and Llac de Sant Maurici National Park where you can enjoy lakes, rivers or springs.
Precisely, since there is water, it is still possible to sign up and try other sports such as rafting on the Noguera Pallaresa river , whose waters are calm. A factor, without a doubt, to take into account to start in this practice.
In the South of Spain, we have Malaga as one of the best destinations and, specifically, the Caminito del Rey , which is surrounded by a natural environment dominated by swamps, mountains, gorges and valleys that are difficult to access.
This road, which was built at the beginning of the 20th century, is over the canyon dug by the Guadalupe River . The path is made through a hanging walkway one meter wide at the points that are narrowest. This route, of about three kilometers, runs along the Desfiladero de los Gaitanes .
It is a route for those who like adventure and risk because the walkway hangs perpendicularly over the gorge and is attached to the vertical walls, with a height above the river of about 100 meters .
And, finally, we talk about Cuenca, which is an ideal destination for all those who want to climb . The best area is the one between the Júcar and Huécar rivers and the Valdecabra sickle .
It is an area in which there are more than 1,000 routes equipped to practice climbing. Among them, of course, there are easier ones, but in general they have a certain difficulty that, in many cases, is high.
There are some destinations to consider for this summer that allow you to enjoy the outdoors and get in shape , which is appreciated after all the state of alarm and the time spent at home with limited mobility.
