The Ebro has earned the distinction as the second longest river in Spain (behind the Tagus), making it a waterway that must indubitably cross some interesting parts of the country. Flowing 565 miles (910 km) from the Cantabrian Mountains to its delta in the city of Tortosa, the Ebro River Valley is one of spectacular mountain scenery, widely dispersed vineyards (la rioja, a barrel-aged red, is a specialty of the region), and an array of adventurous activities for the off-the-beaten-path traveler.
Get your adventure fix via week long bike trips through limestone shelves and charming villages or throw your pack on and explore parks like the Ebro Delta, Parc Natural dels Ports, and La Serra de Monstant Natural Park. Except for cities like Haro, which have gained a name with wine connoisseurs for bodegas bursting with vintage la rioja, this part of Spain is nearly untouched by tourism, making a bike trek through ancient, canyon-fringed towns a truly revealing and unique adventure. Not only this, but the Ebro is known to be a haven for catfish; fishermen on the river have hauled in legitimate 100 lb. catfish! Visit the included links for information on the activities available in the Ebro River Valley. There is undoubtedly something for you.
