Full description

Discover the landscapes and culture of the northern part of the Ebro Delta. Learn about the shellfishing traditions of Illa de Mar, find out all about the cultivation of rice, and keep your eyes peeled to spot the different kinds of wildlife that inhabit this place.

First, head to Illa de Mar, an area situated within Fangar Bay. It's known for its shellfish and has more than a century of tradition behind it. Discover the traditional tools and boats that are used for the cultivation of mussels and oysters

Enjoy the panoramic views while you're there. Admire the green filter lagoon, the fishing village of l'Ampolla, the mussel farms in the middle of the bay, and the red and white lighthouse of the Fangar Peninsula.

Using binoculars, observe the wildlife resting quietly in these waters, and try to spot the star of the biosphere reserve, the flamingo. Visit the point where the Ebro finally meets the Mediterranean Sea. It's a place with great natural richness and stunning landscapes.

From the Delta's highest viewpoint, known locally as 'Ziggurat', you can look out over the different ecosystems that make up the park. Throughout the tour, there are of course many rice paddies. Learn all about the peculiarities of this crop for which Ebro Delta is so well-known.

The river mouth is flanked at its final stretch by Buda Island and Sant Antoni Island as well as a newly formed Garxal Lagoon. Find out about the most serious environmental problem it faces. After the conclusion of the tour, you will return to the meeting point.

We waren wat later in het seizoen. Hierdoor kregen we een privé tour. Onze gids was een echte local die de kleine en fijne dingen van deze schitterende omgeving perfect wist uit te leggen. Ook de betere plaatsen om te eten. Een geweldige zarzuela met gerookte paling en als afsluiter 1000den flamingo's. Dank aan de gids David Mauri.
