Madrid Kayaking in Vulture Valley

Fancy canoeing under hundreds of wild vultures? You probably hadn’t even thought of it…but this is maybe the most spectacular kayaking experience around. Oddly enough, this is the only place in Europe where you’ll see natural wild vultures, circling above you as you negotiate the spectacular ox-bow bends and river spurs of a protected nature reserve north of Madrid.
