The River Ebro - Meanders and Cliffs

Two itineraries are offered here, the first for its range of birds, and the second for its birds, scenery and solitude.

No-one will claim that Flix is a beautiful spot, with its almost omnipresent chemical plant and the nuclear power-station nearby at Ascó, but then again no-one in the know will deny that it's a place where a good variety of interesting birds can be seen in a short space of time.

Surprisingly, only a short distance separates Flix from the start of the second itinerary, although it's like a leap into another world. A world of solitude and silence on the banks of Spain's mightiest river
