You don’t need to travel thousands of kilometres to discover great places. This is the summer to explore our surrounding areas, those regions that are not so far way that offer unforgettable experiences.
Here we are proposing three destinations to enjoy the summer in Spain.
Sustainable tourism among dunes
Eco-tourism or slow travel allow you to enjoy the environment in a calmer and more aware manner. One of the favourite places of eco-tourists is the Ebro Delta Natural Park. Its landscape has it all: surprising lagoons, secluded beaches, infinite dunes with paths packed with fruit trees amidst rice fields and ponds. Its ornithological wealth stands out, as it boasts more than 400 species of birds. A pleasure to enjoy while cycling along its multiple routes.
Not forgetting an aspect as important as cuisine, in the Deltebre area you can enjoy fresh products that are locally sourced. Delta del Ebro rice is a product with Protected Designation of Origin and in this area of sea and orchards, flavours come together in dishes worth tasting, for example, seafood rice dishes, salted fish and vegetable dishes that are worthy of a glass of Blume Verdejo Selección D.O. Rueda white wine, characterised by its elegant citrus aromas such as tangerines and oranges and white flowers combined with subtle notes of dill and hay at the end.
On safari in Extremadura
They call it the Iberian Serengeti because it is home to more than 400 species of birds and mammals. A spectacular landscape within Monfragüe Natural Park in which to enjoy yourself in a 4×4 vehicle accompanied by expert guides who will show you the most impressive places to go on a photo Safari tour without having to leave Spain and save it forever in your memory.
Its cuisine includes some of the best typical products of Extremadura: cured sausages, cheeses, honey, oil… which are ideal ingredients to enjoy with traditional and seasonal cuisine, and perfect for sharing a glass of the aromatic Blume Sauvignon Blanc D.O. Rueda wine with its intense aromas of peach, mango and papaya alongside notes of grass and hay.
Adventure sports among the Bárdenas Reales
Visiting the Bárdenas Reales badlands is like travelling to a film in the American Far West. It’s not so different from the Arizona desert, nor from the landscapes of North Africa. This area of Navarra is home to a semi-desert landscape of deep ravines and endless hills, one after the other, forged by winds for centuries.
The park can be visited by Segway, on horseback, on a bicycle, by 4×4, or on foot. The sunsets in this area are enviable and you can make the most of this if you decide to take a picnic which must, of course, include a bottle of Blume Verdejo Viura white wine. A fresh and aromatic D.O. Rueda wine that will enable you to blend in with nature thanks to its tropical fruits with subtle notes of citrus, flowers and apples.
