Any doubts concerning the trip?

This adventure along the Zafán valley Greenway by bicycle begins in the province of Teruel. In this case we start in Alcañiz, although the Greenway begins earlier, the most comfortable stretch is starting in Alcañiz and ending in Tortosa. 

The Vía Verde del Zafán, is a good option for those cyclists who are starting out or want to pedal comfortably through a route that is mostly downhill. Beyond the cultural heritage that can be known in the villages through which it passes, the route passes through Mediterranean plantations of olive trees, almond trees and vineyards as well as pine forests that together with the viaducts and tunnels will make you live a nice cycling experience .

Day 1: Arrival at Tortosa and transfer to Alcañíz

Today, you will arrive in Alcañiz where you will enjoy a good meal and rest before you start pedaling the next day. If you have time, you can do a short stage around the surroundings or enjoy Alcañiz.

We hope you’ll be looking forward to it!
