The Delta de l’Ebre is the estuary of the Ebre River. This nature space is located in the south of Tarragona and covers an area of 320 square kilometers, of which 80 comprise a nature reserve. It has a great ornithological richness and is internationally important due to the presence of over 400 species and some of the most important breeding colonies in the Mediterranean. It has a unique landscape, home to everything from market gardens and orchards to rice fields, while in the coastal area there are large lakes fringed by rush and reed beds. The area around this nature reserve is characterized by its saline soils, and extensive deserted sandy beaches with dune systems. We will visit this beautiful nature reserve, learning about the delta’s evolution and its rich agriculture, where rice is the main crop of the area. We will enjoy a boat trip to the mouth of the delta, a relaxing adventure that will allow you to grasp the importance of this wetland, one of the highlights of the Mediterranean basin and the largest one in Catalonia. From the boat, we will observe the lush riverside forest, reed beds and the large number of birds that live in this nature reserve, to finally reach the Mediterranean sea, where fresh and salt water mix.

The region of Priorat, located in the south of Catalonia, gives name to one of the most exclusive wines in the world. A long history of effort that began as early as the middle Ages. The visit will start by going up to the picturesque village of Siurana, where you will enjoy breathtaking views of the mountains of Montsant, backdrop of the whole visit. From there to the ancient Carthusian monastery of Scala Dei, founded by a small community of monks at the end of the 12th century and which became, over the centuries, the most splendid of the Peninsula. The events of 1835 devastated the monastery, but nowadays one can visit a rebuild cell and, thanks to the explanations of your guide, you will be able to evoke its lost splendor and the way of life of the monks of San Bruno. And then, time to try some of the prestigious Priorat wines in Conreria, a small town located next to the Carthusian monastery. Priorat mainly produces red wines, typically made with Cariñena and Garnacha grapes, to which the licorella, a local slate, gives a unique personality.
