On this 7 night single centre holiday you'll discover the lush wetlands of the Ebro Delta, offering you a wonderful insight into the waterways and natural habitats of this region - one of the most important of its kind in Europe. We've put together a diverse week's cycling offering lots of choice and flexibility, all from your base in the charming whitewashed town of Poble Nou del Delta. You'll travel along traffic-free routes, with a mixture of quiet roads and riverside trails, the Montsia Mountains providing a spectacular backdrop.
You'll take in impressive bird-filled lagoons, home to beautiful, scented sea lavender and Zygophyllum Album (only to be found here and on some of the Greek Islands) and visit peaceful nature reserves, including a freshwater reserve, home to delicate lilies, toothcarps, sticklebacks and newts; you may also spot turtles and birds including herons, egrets and European bee-eaters to name but three! Visit the beautiful, unspoiled beaches of Illa de Buda, Sant Carles de la Rapita (with its sweeping promenade) and Riumar; you can also soak up some Roman history in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Tarragona, overlooking the sea.
Your base for the week is the charming family-run Hotel L'Algadir, a boutique hotel in the quaint town of Poble Nou del Delta. You'll appreciate its lovely relaxed atmosphere, outdoor swimming pool and terrace, and the restaurant serving excellent locally grown food; be sure to try the exquisite, freshly caught seafood. Chef Alex is very proud of his menu and is often seen wandering the restaurant chatting with customers!
