Castile Riverside Inn to Inn Walking Holiday

Follow the Ebro River through a timeless landscape of grand canyons, wide plains and still villages, all the while accompanied by amazing birdlife.

This exclusive Inn to Inn route follows the beautiful upper section of northern Spain’s Ebro River as it weaves its way east, carving a path through a stunning limestone canyon on its way to the Mediterranean. Enjoy relaxed days of walking, often surrounded by birdlife, and time with your local host to head out birdwatching in the canyon.
