Boasting two historically-rich provincial capitals, southern Catalunya is idyllic and rural - rich in birdlife, wetlands and rice fields - as well as a gorgeous coastline. The Costa Daurada coastline stretches from just north of Tarragona to the Delta de l'Ebre - with a wonderful mix of country, riverside and coastal trails, the Terres de l'Ebre UNESCO Biosphere Reserve has two national parks and 88 miles of coastline, perfect for exploring by bike.
This 10-night holiday takes you on a journey through the beautiful Terres de l'Ebre region. You start at the gateway to Ebro Delta, L'Ampolla, a charming fisherman's town, sitting on the glistening Mediterranean Sea. You pass through Ebro Delta, the second most important wetlands in Europe, glimpsing some of the 300+ species of birds. Don your binoculars and get up close with nature, taking in bird-filled lagoons, smelling the scented sea lavender and Zygophyllum Album and visiting peaceful nature reserves.
You then follow the lifeblood of the region, the Ebro River; from the new towns of the Delta you arrive at the renaissance city of Tortosa. Enjoy stunning vistas of the Els Ports National Park and visit Horta San Joan, the birthplace of cubism! You'll follow in young Picasso's footsteps before heading into wine country, passing vineyards and wine towns, perhaps stopping in one of the cathedrals of wine.
You'll stay in a mix of accommodation from Spain's first 'green' hotel, a stylish boutique hotel in the Delta, a C10 castle, superb newly-built farmhouse and a quaint casa rural
