Boats and ships

Exploring the Sil or Miño Canyons on one of the boats offered by these services is an excellent way to discover the Ribeira Sacra. And, of course, it is one of the most laid-back options.

In the 50s and 60s, the four reservoirs in this area were constructed: Belesar and Os Peares on the Miño river and San Pedro and Santo Estevo on the Sil river.

You can find the following jetties on the Sil river: Santo Estevo (Nogueira de Ramuín), Abeleda (Castro Caldelas), Ponte do Sil (Monforte de Lemos) and Os Chancís (Sober).

On the Miño river, you can find Belesar jetty (O Saviñao) and Os Peares jetty (Carballedo).

Visitors can take part in several different water sports in this area: canoeing, kayaking, paddle surf or simply enjoying a river beach.

Here, you will find all the information you need to take a boat ride along the Miño and Sil.
