Canoe festival. International descent of the Sella River


Description

This is held on the first Saturday of August and combines fun and sport. The kayaking competition brings together over a thousand boats from around the world. On the banks, meanwhile, a party gets going. The race links Arriondas and Ribadesella through the River Sella. Thousands of spectators support the canoeists on the 20-kilometre run. In addition, many wear fancy dress aboard all kinds of curious vehicles that give rise to a peculiar colourful caravan. The party starts early morning in Arriondas and continues throughout the race until it reaches the finishing line. Afterwards, the trophies are handed out and everyone eats, drinks cider, signs and dances in the open air. When night comes, the fun continues in Ribadesella with its terrace bars and open-air parties. In order to participate in the boating event, you must have a valid competition license.
