Over the years, tourism in contact with nature has grown a lot: but not only in Africa or in countries that apparently lend themselves more to “wild tourism”.
In Europe, too, there are parks and areas that lend themselves to adventures in direct contact with nature: in Spain, for example, there are several and this is our personal ranking of the 3 places you absolutely must visit!
Somiedo Natural Park
Established back in 1988, this verdant preserve in the heart of the Cantabrian Mountains has been referred to as the “Yellowstone of Spain”—a quality best represented by its high concentration of Iberian brown bears. Though these ursids were once driven to the brink of extinction due to human activity, Somiedo Natural Park is one of the nation’s best spots for seeing these beasts in the flesh.
Garajonay National Park
Located in the heart of La Gomera, this remote sanctuary is home to a wealth of native species found only in the Canary Islands. For birders in particular, there are two endemic varieties of pigeon to keep watch for, as well as hawks, partridges, and—of course—canaries.
Sierra Nevada National Park
Avid outdoor adventurers take note—Spain’s Sierra Nevada is equipped with over 212,000 acres of mountains up for exploration. Though ski resorts and luxurious lodges abound throughout the park, wildlife enthusiasts can keep their eyes peeled for a massive variety of native Spanish species including golden eagles, Spanish ibexes, and over 100 different varieties of butterfly.
