The region of Alt Empordà is a paradise for nature lovers with its great wealth of culture and landscapes.  Its landscape is made up of plains furrowed by roads and tracks that bring you to the sunflower fields, rice fields, cornfields, apple orchards, vineyards and olive tree orchards.  There are medievel villages inland.  Its coast combines towns with a great maritime flavour with crysatline coves. 

It's an extraordinary area with an amazing cultural heritage.  It's the only region in Catalunya with three catalogued natural areas.  The will to preserve this exceptional landscape has lead to the creation of: 

- The Aiguamolls de l'Empordà Nature Reserve, wetlands where a great variety of native flora and fauna are concentrated

- The Cap de Creus Nature Reserve, a unique mix of maritime and land.

- The l'Albera Nature Reserve

 

Thanks to all this, the tours that we offer you present a great variety and many possibilities, preserving the sounds and fragrances of these surroundings and are guided by our GPS
