The Historical amphitheater of Tarragona.

How about heading off the tourist trail to experience a unique and rarely seen side of Spain? Located in the Terres de l’Ebre region of Southern Catalunya, and traversed by the longest river in Spain, you’ll find the Ebro Delta – one of the most remarkable delta regions of its kind in Europe. Aside from its protected lagoons and wildlife, this little-known region harbors ancient cities, glorious sandy beaches and some of Spain’s most breathtaking landscapes, not to mention mouth-watering local tapas  and regional wines. Welcome to the real Spain…

For the seaside lover…

Discovering the Ebro Delta by bike

Based in the charming whitewashed town of Poble Nou del Delta, this tour offers a week of gentle self-guided cycling against the spectacular backdrop of the Montsià  Mountains. Discover the beautiful, unspoiled beaches of Illa de Buda, Sant Carles de la Ràpita (with its sweeping promenade) and Riumar; soak up some Roman history in UNESCO Tarragona, overlooking the sea; and marvel at incredible flora and fauna in bird-filled lagoons and nature reserves.

  For the history buff…

Undiscovered Southern Catalunya Cycling

Every day is different on this 8-night self-guided cycling tour, where you’ll discover historic towns and villages amidst superb views of mountains, gorges and waterfalls. Marvel at the 2000-year-old Templar city of Tortosa; wander the medieval streets of Picasso’s picturesque Horta de Sant Joan; explore the charming old town of Miravet; and follow our suggested walking paths across the site of the Battle of the Ebro – the longest and largest battle of the Spanish Civil War.

For the artistic type…

Following in the Footsteps of Picasso

On this guided walking tour you’ll explore the vast Els Ports Natural Park, one of the largest and most rugged of Catalunya’s protected areas and the inspiration for much of Pablo Picasso’s work. You’re based near Horta de Sant Joan, one of the prettiest towns in Terra Alta and the one-time home of the great artist. Visit the cave Picasso lived in, tour the museum that houses several of his works and take in the varied and dramatic landscapes which inspired him: rocky mountains, marble quarries, ancient forest and lush river valleys.

  For a bit of everything…

Cycling around the River Ebro

Spend 6 nights exploring the best of the Terres de l’Ebre on a wonderful mix of rural, riverside and coastal trails. Soak up Roman and Spanish Civil War history in ancient Tortosa; get close to nature in the Ebro Delta’s impressive freshwater reserve, home to sticklebacks, lilies and herons; enjoy the sun, sand and excellent seafood at Sant Carles de la Ràpita; and take in the rustic villages, sprawling rice fields and fragrant orchards of rural Spain.

Fall in Spain: Fruit, Fish, Feathers and Faith!

March 27th, 2013 by

It is said that, if you walk a mile in another man’s shoes, you know how they  feel. This is true of both our walking and cycling holidays – when you travel  slowly, with the express purpose of exploring your surrounds on foot or by bike,  you discover every inch of the place.

Breakaway’s Spain offers some fantastic walking and cycling – largely  due to its diverse natural beauty, cultural heritage, temperate climate and  friendly people who welcome visitors as they would long lost family.

Here are just some reasons to consider a holiday in Spain this  year:

Awesome architecture

The great Moorish cities of Andalucia need little introduction, and our Highlights  of Andalucia tour combines these “must see” sights with off-the-beaten-track  white villages, hidden hamlets and abandoned cortijos. You’ll visit  Seville’s stunning Alcazar, Cordoba’s Mezquita and the world-famous Alhambra  palace in Granada, arguably the most beautiful city in Europe.

Sensational citrus

Southern Spain is well known for its lemon groves and orange orchards – some  of the world’s finest oranges come from Valencia. Top walking choices here  include Secrets  of Andalucia, Vistas  of Valencia and Hidden  Valleys of Cordoba.

Tempting trout

In the Sierra  de Grazalema Natural Park, you’ll find eagles, hoopoes, griffon vultures –  and some of the largest trout in southern Europe! There are wonderful views too  from the shattered limestone peaks – even out to Gibraltar and as far as  northern Africa on a clear day.

Beautiful  birds

With over 200 species of birds, the Canary  Islands are an ornithologist’s paradise! You’ll spot Barbary falcons,  ravens, buzzards, sweet-singing yellow canaries and Berthelot’s Pipits – endemic  to these islands.
