Why Ávila is a great choice for the ecotourist
The province of Ávila has many places to enjoy in contact with nature and practice all kinds of adventure and ecotourism activities.
The nature of Ávila is beautiful and surprising; and, however, to a large extent, still unknown. In the different landscapes and protected spaces, outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy hiking trails, wildlife observation, ornithological tourism or micoturismo. But also of more extreme activities.
The incredible landscape of the Sierra de Gredos is one of the best places to practice activities in nature in Ávila. Modeled by ancient glaciers, this mountain range offers endless options for hiking and biking during spring and summer.
It is also a good destination to devote to ornithological observations; with small prominent species such as the bluethroat nightingale or the gardener scribe. And, if winter is your thing, do not miss the excursions made with snowshoes or an exciting ascent to the Almanzor peak, the highest in the central system. Of course, always with the help of a local guide.
