A natural paradise next to the sea

Without a doubt, the Llobregat Delta is one of the most unspoiled natural areas on the Costa Barcelona, a real natural paradise next to the sea, and just a stone’s throw from the Catalan capital, boasting a diversity of flora and fauna that’s hard to match anywhere else in the Mediterranean. Here are just four of the many ways to explore these fabulous landscapes:

1. Guided tours

The wetlands of the Llobregat River are clearly signposted, so you can go there whenever you feel like and explore this natural area at your own pace. But if you’re keen to delve deeper into the protected areas of the delta and discover their impressively diverse wildlife, we recommend booking a place on one of the regular scheduled guided tours.

2. Birdwatching

One of the star activities of the natural areas of the Llobregat Delta is a birdwatching excursion, the best way to discover the delta’s most characteristic bird species, such as grey herons, little egrets, cormorants and ducks. With the help of an expert, you can learn to identify a wide variety of birds, analyse their habitats and find out about their migratory routes. Would you like to become a bona fide birdwatcher?

3. Photography trips

If you’re always seeking out the best light for your camera and you love immortalising special moments, then the photography excursions organised in the delta outside normal opening hours, are just the ticket. At dawn and dusk, the sun has a magical effect on the landscape! What’s more, these are the times of the day when the birds are at their busiest, so if you’re looking for an activity that offers a perfect combination of birds and photography, sign up to one of these special trips.

4. Bike rides

Bike rides along the paths of the delta are the favourite activity of many families, thrilled as they pedal through a unique setting of wetlands, pine groves, meadows, reed swamps, dunes and beaches. Without a doubt, cycling is the best way to explore every nook and cranny of a protected area covering almost 1000 hectares.
