Canoeing the river Coghinas in Sardinia at Valledoria
On the Coghinas river (in some points no wider than 2 m.) you can learn about the area of Valledoria under a different point of view. Far from civility, in fact, there is still an uncontaminated nature, which has become hard to find in Europe.
The calmness and solitude which reign here have made it so that, the whole riverbed, transformed itself in an ideal habitat for several species of water birds, where you can admire the lifestyle of domestic animals (cows and sheep) in a wild state. For this reason this part of our area is under protection of the European Comunity. The descent begins near the Casteldoria baths and ends by the river outlet into the beautiful sandy coast of the St. Peter beach.
Thanks to this calmness canoeing can be practiced by everybody, that means also families with children can enjoy this wonderful part of Sardinian nature. Nearby the delta of the Coghinas river a professional conducted canoe centre (New Kayak Sardinia by Vittoria Marras) offers excursions (single or double canoes) for experts and beginners all year (during winter preferably on weekend)
