From Costa Dorada: Peñiscola and Ebro Delta Sightseeing Tour

1. From Costa Dorada: Peñiscola and Ebro Delta Sightseeing Tour

Board a tour bus and head south, passing through rambling orange plantations on your way to the Ebro Delta. Visit one of the largest wetlands in the Mediterranean which is famous for the production of rice (called "arroz bomba") and for the many species of birds that find a place to breed and live for part of the year. Spot colorful flamingos and other stilt birds resting in the marshes and wander along the river after a short guided introductory tour. Make stops for photos, pick up some rice and honey in the little shops scattered around the natural park, and stop in at a restaurant for refreshments.   Journey on to Peñiscola, one of the most scenic villages in Spain where a number of films and shows (most famously Game of Thrones) have been shot. Marvel at the unique natural landscape of a town built upon a giant boulder formation at the tip of a peninsula. Walk through its small streets and admire the characteristic white houses with blue shutters. Glance up at colorful balconies decorated with plants and ceramic tiles. Check out the famous House of Shells and its striking seashell-encrusted facade. As you reach the town's peak, take in views of the famous Castle of Peñiscola which was originally built in the 13th century and served as a refuge for the pope. Choose to enter and explore the fortification for an extra fee of 5€. Enjoy stunning views over the beaches which stretch out on both sides of the historic center. 

Tarragona: Ebro River Guided Kayaking Tour to Miravet

2. Tarragona: Ebro River Guided Kayaking Tour to Miravet

The starting point is usually the Móra la Nova pier and we usually stop to have breakfast or swim (weather permitting) on an island near Benissanet ; then we continue to the emblematic Miravet: Crowned by its castle, of great historical value, especially in the time of the Templars, although of Arab origin. The current of the river rocks us downstream with the kayak and we will calmly enjoy the exuberant riverside vegetation, especially on the Galatxo islands and the area of the Iberian settlement of Castellet de Banyoles. Some curious contrasts that we will enjoy: We start at the foot of the castle of Móra de Ebro and we will arrive at the foot of the castle of Miravet . We leave from the murmur of the 2 bridges of Móra, to the foot of the Iberian settlement of Tivissa . The Galatxo island on departure and the Miravet islands on arrival. Departing from large bridges and arriving at the historic Miravet boat crossing still in operation, the only one that works without the use of electricity. Apart from the names of trees and different species of birds, we will surely learn what sorts are; what are "aubergins"; what points our Iberian ancestors chose to live; anecdotes of the Battle of the Ebro in the Civil War and of course our guides will inform you of where to eat, what to visit, where to rest, or local customs. It is, in general, a section that runs away from the road and this makes it particularly quiet and magical for a kayak, canoe or canoe route .

Absolutely loved our day out to Peniscola from Salou. Picked up at exactly 9am outside the Lazy wave bar and greeted by our guide - the lovely Janine. She was a pleasure to be around, spoke many different languages and is a gem!! The coach is comfortable and excellent air conditioning at all times. Enough stops (one is enough time for a cappuccino) and we got to see flamingo's - Yay!! When you land at Peniscola, approx 12.30pm Janine offers you to join her whilst she walks to the top and tells you lots of information on the way up. Beautiful streets and views all the way to the castle. You are free to wander about and grab a bite to eat and you all meet up at the drop off point at 4.30pm. We arrived back at the lazy wave at exactly 6pm. Highly recommend this much so when we visit again, we will be booking on it for a second time.

Very pleasant and interesting excursion by coach from Salou center with a great tour guide (Janine) who told us a lot about the area and especially about the Ebro Delta and the city of Peníscola. The whole thing also in German, although we German speakers were strong in the minority. By the way, the chauffeur Ivo did a good job too.

Lovely day out
