Via verde -cycling along Ebre river To attend the meeting please Fill in the form: https://forms.gle/budGFBjfwAJwcn548 En castellano en este enlace: https://www.meetup.com/mamuthiking/pages/29236496/Via_verde_-cycling_along_Ebre_river/ The “Vias Verdes” are cycling and walking trails that are to be found in many regions of Spain. Converted from abandoned railway lines, these routes make fantastic trails that cut through some of the most beautiful parts of rural Spain. Here in the Terres de l’Ebre in Catalonia, we have two connecting routes, which run from the mountainous terrain of Terra Alta right down to Tortosa via the Ebro Valley, or beyond onto the Ebro Delta. You can, of course, walk any section of the Via Verde too, but we think, for a great day out during your holiday, cycling is by far the best way to enjoy more of the trail. Since the routes were originally made for trains there are no steep gradients making it ideal for families or those who haven’t ridden a bike in years! In fact, much of the section from Horta de Sant Joan to Tortosa runs slightly down hill so you barely have to peddle! The scenery en route is delightful. what is the plan? We start cycling rom Horta, spectacular mountains form the backdrop, where you may see Griffon vultures soar overhead, and if you are lucky catch a glimpse of a mountain goat or two.Our route will last 34 km, and we finish in Xerta where we can seat at the cafe and have a cold drink. You will love the excitement of cycling through the many tunnels and over bridges. Most of the tunnels have automatic lighting activated by a sensor as you enter the tunnel. Others don’t, so it’s even more exciting when headlamps are needed! In the middle of the route we will stop to swimm in the river - natural pool and enjoy a cooling dip and a picnic. The photo below is taken at Fontcalda, a true beauty spot surrounded by steep sided cliffs and where there are barbeque facilities and picnic tables. Then finally, when we leave the higher mountains behind us will re-unit with the majestic Ebro which you will ride alongside for the last few kilometres.

There is an amazing region which is located next to Catalonia-is Aragón. And it has so much to offer! In august it is a very good time to go there; we will explore a unique geological terrains & waterfalls. Falls of Bierge/ salto de Bierge is a magnificent place to spend a day in a good company ! Alcanadre river crosses the Sierra of Guara by forming on its passage some deep ravines, canyons and gorges. These are very appreciated by the canyoneurs which come from all Europe and even from other continents. The sector of the river Alcanadre between Bara and Bierge offers as many swimming pools to bathe as canyons to be lowered. We will start our hike from the view point of Morrano village, going dawn though some gorges & canyons ending up at Tamara waterfall, where we can have a lunch and swim. After that we will continue walking always by the river, enjoying amazing views of canyons and goats-climbers. They are all over that place!!!I could even gaze how the goat mom, was showing to the little one how to climb. Very exiting scene! At the end we will get to impressive falls of Bierge.

Beautiful valleys and the mountains, all of this is coming with the pure lakes. It is great going there in summer, because Andorra is located on a height up to 2400 meters above the sea level. We will discover untouchable lakes in this beautiful country, probably some of you can try to swim there (even thou the water could be a bit cold).After a hike we will visit a tiny village called Incles, this is from where we start our track and finish it. The Incles valley is probably the prettiest valley in Andorra, still unspoiled by ugly buildings, wide roads and traffic. Walking along this valley in spring is like walking through a botanical garden. As the valley is relatively flat, it is an outing for everybody. We will stop at the end of the valley and will have a picnic surrounded by magnificent scenery. incles valley is a "must" and you should not miss this almost magical place.
