Enjoy nature in Spain with 100% responsible tourism with itineraries prepared by Destination Spain.
Spain has more biosphere reserves than any other country in the world. On holiday in Spain, you can enjoy nature with environmentally friendly activities and tourism. There are many protected natural spaces known for their sustainable tourism options, such as former railway tracks for walking in nature. Known as Greenways or Vías Verdes, these are abandoned railway lines that have been adapted for hiking and cycling in natural surroundings. Spain has a total of more than 2,600 kilometers of greenways. These paths are a good example of restoring the environment, and on some you can see rare animals, such as bears. This is the case of the Senda del Oso (Bear Path) in Asturias, where the bear Paca lives in the hills. He was rescued as a cub and now lives on a nearby mountain, and every day he comes down to be fed (around 12 noon) in a part of the path near Proaza.
