Excursions

Excursions designed to enable visitors to discover and interpret the natural spaces of the Natura 2000 network, located close to Pobes.

These excursions are ideal for people starting out in the world of bird watching and/or for those who wish to increase their knowledge. Besides the fauna, visitors can enjoy the flora to be found in this area of bioclimatic transition, with special regard to plants used for medicinal purposes.


For city lovers, there are also visits to Vitoria-Gasteiz and Bilbao. There is, therefore, something for everyone.


These excursions do not require a high level of fitness and are adapted in all cases to the interests and capabilities of the group.


Although the locations, landscapes and environments visited are extremely varied and sometimes completely contrasting in nature, the distances by car from Pobes are short and in the majority of cases last from 20 to 40 minutes.
