The ultimate opportunity to combine the outdoors with a sightseeing trip (and escape the pavement pounding crowds). Hop on a kayak and join a local guide as they show you Seville from a genuinely unique perspective, as you explore from the swift, cool Guadalquivir River.
You will arrive at a prearranged time at Club Deportivo RemoSevilla, and seamlessly jump straight on your kayak with your instructor and guide for the morning.
For two hours, you’ll discover the dreamy city of Seville, it’s beautifully crafted bridges and relaxed city life, from the alternative perspective of Guadalquivir, the second-longest river in Spain.
From the iconic, student-built Triana Bridge, the green, sun-soaked riverbank with its population slowly, languidly passing by, to rarely seen views of the Seville skyline, you’ll be escaping the crowds heaving through the hot, bustling main streets.
Discover the history of the river, and it’s importance to Seville and the city’s development, and learn how this physical barrier that runs through the heart of the ancient city played its part in developing distinct city neighbourhoods and characteristics.
Get up to date with the Guadalquivir, including the story behind why you get to enjoy such clean, refreshing water, and the transformation of the river and its course due to the 1992 World Exhibition.
Finally, refreshed and heads bursting with recommendations for afternoon activities thanks to your guide, arrive back at Club Deportivo RemoSevilla.

A traveler since the age of 16. After a motorcycling trip in West Africa, I returned home to Seville, Spain with a new perspective on the importance of travel for both locals and visitors. Taking a closer look at Seville, I realised that the city I knew and loved was not the same one being packaged to unknowing travellers. The culture that made Seville so special to me was completely inaccessible to tourists. I was determined to find a way to give fellow travellers an authentic experience of Seville and Andalusia. A way to be invited into the culture as a close friend and not just a tourist.

We had a fantastic time with our guide, who knew all about the history of the sights along the river and flavoured the info with his own perceptions which we thoroughly enjoyed. We were initially concerned we would have difficulty finding the location (reviews of other kayak rental facilities warned readers) but it was super easy. Our guide was waiting for us when we arrived, showed us the facilities and off we went. It was great to hear his enthusiastic comments about Sevilla and suggestions for other things to see. We were very pleased with our lovely kayaking morning on the Guadalquivir.Read more
