The province of Ávila has many places to enjoy in contact with nature and practice all kinds of adventure and ecotourism activities. Find the best hotels in Ávila!
Ávila’s nature is beautiful and surprising; however, it is still the great unknown. Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy hiking trails, wildlife watching or ornithological tourism. But also the most extreme activities.
The incredible landscape of Sierra de Gredos is one of the best places to practice activities in nature. Modeled by ancient glaciers, this mountain range offers endless options for hiking and cycling during spring and summer.
It is also a good destination for ornithological observations, with small prominent species such as the blue nightingale or the gardener's scribe. And if winter is your thing, don't miss snowshoeing or an exciting climb to Almanzor peak. Of course always with the local guide’s recommendations.
The Tiétar valley, which marks the boundary of the province with Toledo, is one of the most beautiful in Ávila thanks to the colour it takes with the flowering of the cherry trees. Hiking and ecotourism in this place will make you feel immersed in a space full of magic and history. In addition, beyond the river bed, in the Tiétar valley you can practice climbing. You can also enjoy La Paramera and Serrota mountains or kayak down the Alberche River.
But if you want more relaxed plans, you can visit the city of Ávila and contemplate the cathedral and the magnificent churches and palaces. Admire Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and modern architecture. And you can't leave without trying the excellent local food: exquisite veal, sweets made with egg yolk and sugar, and much more.
