Or as it is more fashionable, birdwatching. With 320 km2, the Ebro Delta Natural Park is the largest wetland area in Catalonia, constituting one of the most important aquatic habitats in the western Mediterranean. This makes the Delta home to a rich biodiversity, among which the large influx of birds stands out, with winter being the best season of all to see a wide range of birds.
To do birdwatching in the Ebro Delta you don't need any permission and it's free. However, please remember that this is a beautiful and fragile ecosystem, so it is very important that you respect the nesting and wintering areas. Here are some birding routes and some practical advice.
One of the peculiarities of the Ebro Delta is its immense flat surface, perfect for bicycles. Between rice fields; along the riverbank, sheltered by poplars and following the course of the Ebro; bordering the bays... You can do so many routes! Take advantage of these landscapes to exercise, eliminate stress, feel better and connect with nature and yourself.
