“Lovely Natural Park”

Canon del Rio Lobos Natural Park

Attraction details
Reviewed 4 July 2016 via mobile

Visited here in July when it was really hot but enjoyed the short walk up to the old Hermitage despite the high temperatures. If you have a choice it is probably better to visit in the cooler months but you can walk as little or as long as you like and enjoy the stunning scenery and wildlife on the way.
We saw lots of griffon vultures and other birds of prey and the river was full of water lilies which were beautiful.
Make sure you take plenty of water with you and have plenty of sunscreen and a hat in hot weather and just enjoy this lovely place.

A dramatic narrow valley leading steadily up the river. A bit like Yosemite on a smaller scale. Can get busy at weekends.

After a fantastic week in Rioja, we had a day for outdoor experience. The Park is located about 2 hours drive from Madrid, so it should do even for a day. The vultures are worth the effort, when we visited at the end of September, they left their nests right after noon.
It is very hot when the sun shines, so make sure that you have enough water with you. As there is non or very limited food source in the neighborhood, best is to take some sandwiches as well.
The canon is approx. 26 km long, you can enter from various gates, before you do your round, please consult with the locals, as there is no public transport in between, so you must take the same route where you come from.
There are plenty of fantastic rock formations, however the path is suitable for children as well as cyclist!

Are you interested in nature, history, food and amazing places to discover? If your answer is "yes" you are in the right place. The Canon del Rio Lobos Natural Park comprises everything: you can walk in a big natural area, discover a stunning place and a church and see the caves where people used to live many years ago. As the place is not far from a village, you can eat in a lovely restaurant nearby called "La Roca" where you can try typical meat and fish dishes from the area. I strongly recommend you visit this natural park. It well worth the visit!

This is a big natural area. If you have time and a full day or two to dedicate to hiking, this place is great. The drive there is scenic and easy - very well marked/indicated. Would have liked to have spent more time there. There is a hermitage that is popular to hike to. Lots of flora and fauna to see - a great nature reserve.
