Geography Trip to the Ebro Delta

Included in Category A (of exceptional interest) by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, The Ebro Delta is one of the largest wetland areas on the Mediterranean, covering some 32,000 hectares. As Catalonia’s primary agricultural region and being close to the exciting city of Barcelona, you can cover a wide and fascinating spectrum of topics, from ecosystems to sustainable waste management.
