Adventurers celebrate hydrospeed activity in Montanejos

Early Morning Adventure – Montanejos 

One of my favourite things about Spain is how diverse and exciting the terrain can be – one moment you’re wakeboarding on the Mediterranean but before you know it, you’re floating down the river Mijares on an inflatable doughnut. Our location for this post is a bit further away in the scenic town of Montanejos, located in Alto Mijares and most famous for its glistening thermal waters. Here are my top 5 activities in Montanejos!

Hydrospeed

Hydrospeed isn’t the most famous of activities but it is certainly worth the top spot of this list. You are equipped with a Hydro, what I would describe as a half surf-board made from thick foam, and then bounce down wild waves and white-water rapids on top of it! The Mijares river in Montanejos is the only class III river in the Valencian Community and the perfect setting for this activity. Organised by Somos Aventura, they will look after you every step of the way.

Caving in the Cirà Cave

Máxima Aventura are here to offer you an exploration and full caving experience of the Cirá Cave. Discover beautiful formations such as stalactites, stalagmites, gourds, aragonites and much more through a variety of different levels. This activity is located in the village of Montán, approximately 9km from Montanejos and Máxima Aventura look after you from start to finish. You can even test your caving skills with the opportunity to try some “gateras” or narrow passages! If you’ve never been caving before, this activity is perfectly adapted for beginners – now is the time to uncover the hidden history within this cave. 

Rope jumping

Oh yeah I love a good freefall activity! Leap off from a 100 metre cliff and throw yourself into the void… Jumping from the cliffs of the Mijares river, this adventure is for your hardened adrenaline junkies. For those that have curiously looked at BASE jumping before, this is probably the closest you’re going to get without actually BASE jumping. Cuerda Viva take you through this unforgettable experience, suitable for everyone including those that have never done something like this.   

Mono-Rafting

Mono-Rafting, also known as River Tubing, this activity comes to you exclusively from Somos Aventura. Fun for all the family – literally, try it from 6 years old! This is an adventure activity for anyone who wants to enjoy the descents through rapids in a safe and exciting way. Although it looks like you bobble down the river in a big inflatable doughnut, it’s actually a rounded pneumatic boat and made of much sturdier stuff to protect you from the rocks. Grab your double paddle, join your boat with your bestie and squeal together!

Thermal Springs

Okay, now this next recommendation is not high on the adrenaline factor but no trip to Montanejos is complete without first visiting Fuente de los Baños de Montanejos, a collection of stunning thermal springs. After all of the above, you will need something to bring your heart rate back to normal! Relax all year round in the springs and absorb the natural beauty of this stunning location.
