Adventurer pulls off insane drops, wild rapids and epic waterfalls in Portugal.
Aniol Serrasolses is used to testing his supreme whitewater kayaking skills in stunning and dangerous locations, however his amazing Águas Bravas project is his best yet.
The Spanish kayak adventurer headed to neighbouring Portugal with friend Antonio Palavra to take on perilous flooded rivers, the likes of which locals have not seen for over a hundred years. Here is all you need to know:
– Serrasolses took advantage of the freak recent weather in Portugal that has seen two months of rain, which counts as the wettest period of the last century in the country.
– The 27-year-old travelled over from building his new home in Patagonia to join local guide Palavra for an intense four-day trip with more than 1,500km by car.
– The duo went from capital Lisbon all the way up to the northern border with Spain, paddling seven rivers and three new descents in the process.
– Serrasolses revealed: “Castro Laboreiro was my favourite. Three waterfalls, together, one after the other, surrounded by mountains and in a beautiful landscape. I’ve travelled the world looking for spots like this. There are very few and they’re hard to find!”
– The Catalan, who is known for epic displays such as Keyhole Falls and Sickline Austria, heads to Nepal next for a month-long trip high in the Himalayas.
