Spain is a privileged destination for its natural resources. Here we propose a visit to six Spanish areas declared Biosphere Reserves by the UNESCO.

If you like the outdoors and the countryside, then you'll love Spain and especially on account of the variety and excellent condition of the ecosystems here. This has been officially confirmed by the UNESCO, as our country has 45 Biosphere Reserve designations. Here we present the six spaces: the Allariz Area in the province of Ourense, the Sierra del Rincón Mountains in Madrid, almost half of the island of Gran Canaria and, in the León region, Los Argüellos, Alto Bernesga and the Omaña and Luna Valleys.

This important international designation means a special level of protection in each area on account of its ecological wealth, but it also means much more. It draws attention to those places where man has managed to establish a harmonious relationship with his environment, becoming an exemplary model of development.

Spain's Biosphere Reserves are places where you'll feel especially close to the beauty and magic of nature. Here you'll find exceptional landscapes, unique species and, furthermore, a range of activities that will help you discover them in the most enjoyable ways. You just have to choose which one.

A good way to get to know any of these areas is hiking. Make use of the network of tracks and trails. Take your time and discover everything from the spectacular contrasts of the island of Gran Canaria to the interesting archaeological remains to be found in the Omaña and Luna Valleys. If you decide to visit the Alto Bernesga area, you should leave time for bird watching - here it is easy to spot endangered species, such as the red kite, peregrine falcon, golden eagle and Egyptian vulture.

There are other ways to enjoy the fun side of nature too. How about exploring the Sierra del Rincón Mountains by bike? You can ride on tracks and trails in this area that will take you to the Hayedo de Montejo, one of Europe's southernmost beech forests. A trip in kayak or on horseback are enjoyable ways to visit the Allariz area. Otherwise, if you prefer something more exciting, you can go caving in stunning places like the Valporquero Caves in Los Argüellos.

These are just some of the options available to discover Spain's Biosphere Reserves. The best thing to do is to enquire in the relevant visitor centres or tourist offices and they will give you all the necessary details.
