To the south of Catalunya, is one of the most important wetlands in our country. Delta del Ebro Natural Park is the second largest habitat of Spain after the Doñana National Park.

With an area of 7,700 ha and an animal population of 70,000 specimens of 300 different species, coexistence between humans and nature has not always been easy. So in 1983, the Government declared ownership of the Natural Park area to protect the rich ecosystem.

In the park, you will find a perfect spot for cycling. Endless paddy fields, riverine forests, coastal lagoons, endless beaches and large dune systems that form the habitat for numerous species of birds, fishes, reptiles and amphibians.
