Heat, water, imagination and a lot of celebration are the main ingredients of this celebration which has become a collective festival for the towns of Balaguer, Camarasa, Gerb and Sant Llorenç de Montgai.
La Transsegre was born with the aim of reclaiming the natural space of the Segre river, through a crazy descent.
This is not a competition, if not an exhibition of very original craft boats, and each year has more participants and enthusiasts.
The event is divided into two stages:
All the boats leave Camarasa, in the waters of the reservoir, to go to the beach of Sant Llorenç de Montgai.
During the night, in the Park of the Transsegre, by the river in Balaguer, a big party is organized with concerts and shows until dawn.
At 10 o'clock in the morning, the boats which have succeeded in completing the first section leave Gerb to go to Balaguer, the end point of the course, on a course that reaches 4 kms.
While the sailors finish the tour, all those who frequent the park can be entertained with various shows and have an aperitif, in order to say goodbye to the Transsegre together.
