Kayaking on the River Ter, Catalonia

At the village of Colomers, you can hire kayaks for a two hour cruise downstream the Ter to Verges. It costs about 25 euros for each adult and backrests are another 5 euros per kayak, but the river is both serene and scenic. You'll see turtles basking in the sunshine, the lush riverbanks are a verdant green and you can float much of the way.  In August, there are a few stretches of choppy water, but nothing taxing. The biggest hazard is probably other kayaks. Try to get there before 10am, so you should have the water to yourself and you'll avoid the queue for a boat. A minibus will collect you at Verges and ferry you back to Colomers. 7/10
