Following the huge success of the 2017 Guadiana Challenge, this Stand Up Paddle (SUP) event is back this April for another fun and exciting weekend on the water!
Over 140 paddlers and hundreds of spectators came out to enjoy an amazing 3 days of fun on the Guadiana River last year. Stand up paddlers flew in from all over Europe, some opted to compete in the race section others to enjoy a long but stress-free paddle along one of Portugal’s most remote and historic watercourses.
This year, the event is not just about the race from Mertola, but about showing the public the amazing sport of stand up paddle and having fun at the same time.
You will be able to try out boards from many different brands and meet and watch top paddlers in action. The day's adventures are split into three:
- 23km race
- 23km fun paddle where participants are able to stop for lunch if they choose to and enjoy the stunning unspoiled river
- 10km paddle route
This is a great event with lots of fun activities, live music and food throught the weekend.
Adventure paddling is surging in interest as many people are packing their boards and heading out for a weekend of fun in nature. This challenge will prove that it’s not actually that tough to paddle much further than you ever thought you could.
