The tunnels greenway.
Soft cycling down at the former railway wich linked Alcañiz and Tortosa is the main option in active tourism in this Ebro county: A greenway completely in soft way down; lovely villages; Canaletes river; wine and gastronomy and the most important in the long and dark tunnels, makes it a unique activity.
We suggest you do the bike tour down leaving north and at the end, we take you back to your vehicle. The absence of light in many of the tunnels, has been one of the attractions of this Greenway : flashlight or headlamp are required!
Depending on your interests, skills and philosophy of business, you can choose the starting points (Arnes, Horta de Sant Joan or Bot meanly) and of course, the arrival point (Pinell de Brai, Benifallet, Xerta or even Tortosa).
Green Way offers many attractions so that you can take only one hour and a half or even two days by bike.
Ideal for those not already used to the bike because it has no complication and also for those who want a natural setting in the beautiful, lonely and peaceful Terra Alta route.
Interesting our 4 days trip (2 by bike and 2 by canoeing) from Alcaniz till reaching the Mediterranean Sea). Just ask us about.
