6 reasons to enjoy sustainable tourism in Cáceres
1. Walk through history
The province of Cáceres has hosted, since antiquity, numerous towns and cultures. In it there are vestiges from prehistory, such as buildings that can be visited in Valencia de Alcántara, in the well-known Route of the Dolmens. In the region you will also find a Megalithic Interpretation Center and many other options to embark on a true journey into the past.
2. Navigate between two lands
The Tagus River serves as the border between Spain and Portugal and gives rise to the only International Natural Park in the country. Immerse yourself fully in this unique space, full of biodiversity, and discover what it feels like to kayak right on the border between two countries.
3. Share the local culture
The province of Cáceres, in general, and the Sierra de Gata, in particular, offer a multitude of ways to immerse yourself in the local culture and learn the trades that were previously practiced in these lands. Discover the old gold mines, walk the paths of the shepherds and make the cheese as it is done in the farms of a lifetime.
4. Lift the flight
In Cáceres, walking head-down is the worst of ideas. Its skies are permanently crossed by numerous raptors that delight ornithological tourists. In the Monfragüe National Park, in the Sierra de Gata or on the banks of the Tagus River, the great birds of the Iberian Peninsula find their place; and you, who follow them, yours.
5. Throw yourself into adventure
Although ecotourism is the dominant note in the province there is also place for adventure in Cáceres. Routes of trekking or mountain biking, zip lines, archery or, activities to release adrenaline and put yourself to the test, such as climbing and abseiling.
6. Listen to nature
Water that runs in fast channels, waterfalls, the wind that blows between the leaves ... Nature is full of those melodies that accompany us when we walk through it. Some others, like the claim of the birds of prey or the bellowing of the deer during the autumn, break the background music and awaken our senses. Nature has its own voice in Cáceres, and invites you to listen to it.
