Burgos, an ecotourism destination
Being as it is one of the largest provinces in Spain (with more than 14,000 square kilometers), it is not surprising that it keeps a variety of landscapes so big to surprise the traveler. Burgos has mountains to the north and northeast, and with plains in the center and in the south.
In this way, it is not surprising that the activities in nature in Burgos are many and very diverse. The truth is that, in this province, nature lovers can do practically everything they can think of.
In summer, the quintessential time to enjoy nature, the most desirable thing is to do aquatic activities. In this sense, the Natural Park of the Hoces del Alto Ebro and el Rudrón is the best place to do rafting and open kayak. It is a succession of canyons, gorges and sickles that reach 200 meters deep. A unique environment to enjoy nature with shovels.
You can also practice kayaking or paddle surfing (although more calmly this time) in the Ebro reservoir, just on the border of the provinces of Cantabria and Burgos. Both this place, declared a Natural Reserve, and the previous Natural Park, are also good areas to devote to bird watching. In the reservoir, you will see waterfowl and migratory birds; while in the High Ebro raptors abound, such as the griffon vulture, the Egyptian vulture, the Bonelli's eagle, the eagle owl and the peregrine falcon.
