In Seville there are many opportunities for rowing and all kinds of water sports. The Guadalquivir is the best place for sports and leisure boats: calm, wide, with stunning views and in the heart of the capital. On the Isla de la Cartuja you will find the Specialised Centre for High Performance Rowing and Canoeing of the Consejo Superior de Deportes (Spanish National Sports Council). You can often see international and Olympic teams training in the river. We have many rowing champions in Seville.
In the Sierra Norte, the water courses and reservoirs allow you to do these sports in a spectacular natural environment. You can do canoeing, kayaking, sailing, whitewater rafting, paddle surfing, rowing and other sports at the sports schools and clubs throughout the province. And if you want to be an authentic Robinson Crusoe, you can learn to build rafts and navigate surrounded by nature.
The marinas of Gelves and Seville city offer the possibility of sailing in the area or setting sail for the next port of call, always with the idea of returning to Seville, of course!
