Map of the Tarragona Green Ways Bike Tour
Matarraņa can be enjoyed by strolling through the streets of its towns and villages, discovering the little details they have to offer, or by savouring the majesty of its landscapes. It is an area full of secrets which this Greenway can reveal.
The Terra Alta Greenway runs alongside the river Canaletes until the end of the route. A succession of tunnels and viaducts punctuate the remaining kilometres. Among the most picturesque viaducts is the one which spans the Barranc del Molí del Cap ravine, and another which crosses high over the pine trees concealing the water course at the bottom of the Barranc de la Balloca ravine. Their elegant arches put us in mind of Roman aqueducts and the ancient Roman capital of the province, Tarraco, which is not so far away.

The Nature reserve of the Ebro Delta constitutes one of the largest humid area of the Mediterranean Europe. In this protected area we can see gardens, fruit-bearing trees and rice fields, and if we wait until the right time of year to visit, you will be able to observe the delightful sight of migrating and nesting birds. Visitors to the Delta should not be in the hurry; a bicycle ride permits you to admire the singularity of the place and to enjoy the nature up close.

 ITINERARY
  Stage 1
Alcaņiz - La Fresneda

On the border between Teruel and Tarragona the landscape alternates between forest and mountain, plains and hills, and is dotted with amazing villages carved out of stone.
 
  Stage 2
La Fresneda - Horta

We use the disused rail bed of this forgotten railway to travel through the countryside around the Sierra de Pandols ridge and the Beceite heights. A journey through tunnels and over viaducts takes us from Aragon to the Ebro.
 
  Stage 3
Horta - Tortosa

From here the Greenway runs alongside the river. A succession of tunnels and viaducts punctuate the remaining kilometres.
 
  Stage 4
Tortosa - Deltebre

From Tortosa we will follow the Ebro River to get in the Delta.
 
  Stage 5
Deltebre - Deltebre

The last stage is a circular tour in The Nature reserve of the Delta de l'Ebre. The Delta combines the use for rice fields, vegetation areas, the lagoons and ponds and long beaches of fine sand. It is a peninsula with a triangular form that the river has been creating with the materials that it drags along in its path. Its vital value takes root in the fact that there it shelters an important colony of resident and migratory birds.
