Ourense as a natural paradise, now you can explore it
Ourense is in a privileged geographical situation. Imagine a valley, surrounded by mountains, hills and crossed by rivers. This is Ourense. The beauty of this province is really worth contemplating. Whether for its riverbank forests or its rivers, active tourism in the nature of Ourense is practiced every day.
There are many places to practice ecotourism in Ourense: in the canyons of the Sil River, in the Peña Trevinca mountains, on the banks of the Miño River, the Invernadoiro Natural Park and many other places of great ecological interest.
One of the most impressive natural parks is the Baixa Limia-Gerés Natural Park, which ends up joining the most important natural park in Portugal, forming the Peneda-Gerés National Park, an authentic protected area that crosses borders unique to the European community.
Although we speak of importance for biological diversity, the Miño River has a great role for those who love bird watching. Its banks are often home to birds such as the kingfisher or the heron. Also other animals that enjoy this habitat as nutias and amphibians.
