There are cities that experts recommend you visit relishing every street and every square, others that they tell us that the magic is best seen from the air or alternatives that are best seen from a distance so that you can fully appreciate the spectacular panoramic views. Yes these are the recommendations to extract the most out of a visit to some cities but then you have Bilbao which is actually just perfect and beautiful from which ever way you look at it.
Either by land or from the air, the Basque capital is a mixture of colours, smells and trends. All this converts into one of the most visited destinations in our country. If you are a return visitor to the city and have chosen the Hotel Petit Palace Arana de Bilbao to disconnect from your daily routine then what do you think about discovering the city from the Estuary of Bilbao? It doesn’t sound like a bad idea, right?
Bilbao is industry, the smell of nature, avant-garde construction and the Estuary, the beautiful and authentic Estuary of Bilbao. Full of character and unusual places that are really worth a visit and certainly there is nothing like covering some miles travelling by canoe, kayak or even practicing paddle surf, yes it is available for those who want to try.
You have never done it but why not think about treating yourself to an original sporting weekend in the Basque capital? You are in luck because in Bilbao you can continually find centres which invite you to become acquainted with the city from the heart of the Estuary.
Although we are talking about the Estuary and not open sea (at least in the heart of the city) the Paddle Surf option is ideal but it is only advisable for those who come equipped with a protective neoprene. At specialist centres such as Bwaters they are very clear and can offer paddle surf days along the Estuary with everything necessary for your enjoyment without being cold. The route? Simply ideal: leaving from the Ramon de la Sota dock in the direction of San Anton.
For those who need some space so that they can take a camera or dry clothes, nothing better than to visit the city from the Estuary but in canoe or kayak. As the Estuary is very peaceful you can enjoy yourself from the beginning to the end. The best option? Although you will have an ample choice, we recommend the experience and professionalism of Bilboventura, a company which specializes in showing you the marine side of the city always with amusing and original activities.
