Come explore this new destination with us! In the beautiful Santander Bay we'll row, cycle, and enjoy the Spanish climate, food, and colors. Families welcome, activities will be offered for kids age and older, non-rowing spouses, too! This is a very unique and traditional style of rowing and a great experience for all levels of rowers. We will explore the beautiful bay of Santander rowing from our boat. Our main facilities are in the municipality of Pedre�a. Other support facilities are in Puerto Chico (Santander) and in the municipality of Astillero. �Trainera� is the typical rowing boat of Cantabria. It is a rowing boat but some of them are sailing boat as well. It was originally used for fishing, mainly whaling, but nowadays and with modifications of lightening, it is used for leisure and rowing regattas. Some of our day activities will include a visit to Pedre�a, the Cantabrian Maritime Museum , City e-bike tour, Cab�rceno Park, Water Temple in Solares, Capricho de Gaud� and an anchovy tasting unlike anything you've tried before. Our trip will begin and end in Santander, rowing from there to spots along the coast. Each day we'll explore different towns or parks, by bicycle or e-bike, foot, or rowing shell. This is a gorgeous way to intimately explore this uncrowded corner of Spain, and is a great trip for families, too, as we will all be on the same boat....metaphorically and physically! Ideally kids would be 8 and older and active, ready-for-adventure explorers. ?Local rowing boats called "trainera" have been remodernized and seat 12 rowers side by side, sweep rowing with fixed seats. Advanced rowers are invited to enjoy this trip not for technical reasons but for experiencing rowing in all its millennia of history...the sliding seat has only been around for a mere 150 years! ?
