Cañon de Almadenes
Do you want to unwind completely and become one with nature? The canyon de Almadenes is a nature reserve, close to Calasparra and can only be visited by boat (raft). It is a quiet route of approximately 5 km. An ideal family activity.
The adventure starts in El Viso, agricultural area full of rice fields in Calasparra. From here the departure starts in the Cañon de Almadenes to the dam of La Mulata.
If you stay calm and quiet during the voyage, it is possible to spot animals in their natural environment.
About halfway the route you can see the Abrigos del Pozo. The site belongs to the World Heritage. You can see rock paintings. The cave, also known as Cueva de los Monigotes, was once inhabited in the 2nd -4th century.
The descent per raft is always under supervision. You can make a reservation at Qalat Naturalez. The chance of a wet suit is not very large.
