Nature Cocktail! Rafting or canyoning, another way to discover nature.
RAFTING OR CANYONING ARE OTHER WAYS TO DISCOVER THE NATURE OF THE BASQUE COUNTRY IN A DIFFERENT WAY!
Rafting, mini-raft, cano-raft, hydrospeed or canyoning…, all means are good to discover the secrets of the river.
Species that are sometimes rare frequent the Nive and are sometimes a guarantee of water quality!
Some examples in fish: Atlantic salmon, American shad, American shad, Sea lamprey, River lamprey, Planer lamprey, Toxostome, Sculpin…
On the mammalian side, the European otter frequents the entire linear range, but very discreet and twilight it remains difficult to see. We can still observe his prints and proofs (droppings recognizable by the smell of honey!).
The ones who will follow you on a rafting trip are the ladies, especially the magnificent metallic blue Caléoptéryx.
Not to mention all the birds that border the watercourse, with a special mention for the stream wagtail and the diving cingle called respectively the tickle and the waterbird….
