Zamora's natural side: the best experience for the ecotourist
On the other hand, the Natural Park of Arribes del Duero, shared with the province of Salamanca, is not far behind in terms of activities in nature in Zamora. In this spectacular valley you can sail in kayak, trekking or hiking, mountain biking, enjoy geotourism or engage in bird watching.
In the Sayago region, interpretive walking is also practiced. As well as water sports, which take place in the Almendra reservoir. In summer you can bathe in this as well as in the river Tormes. And, if you want something more original, you can make a route on horseback through the region.
If you like birding, the Villafáfila Nature Reserve is what you have to visit. Many aquatic birds find their meeting point here during the migration. You can observe them while you enjoy some of the available hiking routes, stopping at the observatories.
But talking about ecotourism in Zamora is, above all, talking about the Iberian wolf. The Sierra de la Culebra is the area where the largest population of wolves in Spain is located; and there, the excursion has no other purpose but to find it. Sign up for an observation activity of the Iberian wolf in Zamora and discover the true meaning of the word wild.
