Ebro Delta in December 2015

A winter trip back to Ebro Delta

This time we visited the wetlands in winter. We stayed at the Tancat De Codorniu hotel which used to be the summer house of Spanish King Alfonso XII. The hotel is surrounded by fields of oranges, and offers an real treat between the adventures to the delta area and the mountains. We spend most of the time exploring the wetlands but also a couple of days at the mountains in the Els Ports and Benifassa nature reserves. The last night we stayed in Barcelona and had the chance to visit Delta del Llobregat next to El Prat-Barcelona airport. Both wetlands were full of life and definitely worth while visiting in winter.
