Galicia is a magical place that can be discovered in many ways. In Alecrín we want to approach your wonders by organizing different activities through their rural environment , starting from Vigo (Pontevedra) throughout the province and even extending to the other provinces of the Autonomous Community.
To see our offer, we leave you a brief summary of all the things we do:
As you can see, we focus on nature and its treasures. Contact us to do any of the experiences!
The Rías Baixas are one of the most emblematic points of the Galician region, and in Alecrín we do kayaking routes through the waters of the Ensenada de San Simón , located on the Vigo estuary. Our center is in this same city, so the kayaks are totally ready to go sailing and reach the island of San Simón, also known as the I sla of memory .
This route is suitable for the family, children (from 6 years old) and adults, and we leave from Cesantes , in Redondela, in self-emptying boats for 2 people and with paddles for both. After paddling along the estuary, we will arrive at the island, where we will disembark to enjoy its tranquility and splendor.
But the natural sites of Galicia also deserve a journey on land. That's why we have a route that combines hiking and kayaking , walking through the riverside forests and observing the traditional constructions related to the use of the river and forests. Then, we will paddle through calm waters observing its beauty from the boat.
Both experiences are refreshing and simple level . The waters are calm and the path is barely uneven, so it is a way to enjoy two nature sports without spending excessive energy and enjoying the landscape more.
There is the possibility of doing the kayak tour at night, in the moonlight.
In Alecrín we have prepared a few hiking routes through the wide natural terrain of Galicia . Our headquarters are in Vigo , but we organize departures beyond the province of Pontevedra , occupying the entire Galician region. We move through the forests, which have traces of magic, the mountains, cliffs that hide on the horizon, abandoned villages and animals and plants so varied that they can only be found walking along the rural paths.
We take guided tours, such as the Sierra del Suído , on the border of Pontevedra with Ourense, very far from the cities and their hustle and bustle. We will also follow the trail of the wolf in A Cañiza, walking along the trail of the Whispering Valley in the region of A Paradanta. The Serra da Groba is a route that you will love, in the towns of Baiona, Oia and O Rosal.
In addition, we have a series of routes that we call " giants ": the route of the Lighthouses , some sections of the Camino de Santiago and the route of the Cascades of Galicia are challenging routes in which to confirm the passion for hiking and the Galician land.
