Bathing areas in Navarre

Piscina fluvial de Betelu
Who says Navarre doesn't have a beach? You might not see the sea, but if you're one of those people that can't imagine summer without taking a dip, you should know that Navarre does have lots of fresh water. Here are some ideas to get the most out of our rivers and reservoirs:

- A classic: bask in the sun and remember your childhood, cooling off at one of our river beaches. These are controlled spaces with an adapted environment and good quality water so that you can relax and enjoy a care-free swim.

- For reservoir lovers: dive into the turquoise waters of the Alloz reservoir, the headquarters of the Navarre sailing school, and have a boat ride, try your hand at windsurfing, or discover paddle boarding, the Polynesian modality that's making waves around the world for its simplicity and enjoyment.

- For lovers of river activities: head down river in a canoe or give rafting a try in the Pyrenees; take a kayaking class in Pamplona; or get to know the environmental values of the Irati and Ebro rivers first-hand.
