If you find yourself within 50 miles of here you will be amply rewarded if take time to visit. It's a truly stunning place and so accessible for people of any physical ability without disappointing the fittest walker. We saw it last year for the briefest of visits and were so taken with the place we planned our holiday round... More

I'm an eleven year old girl and I loved it. As I got there, after having a lovely pick-nick, I enjoyed watching the vultures fly high in the sky. They are an amazing bird, and you can just sit down watch them for hours. After watching them for a while I took a path on the right leading towards an... More

I visited Rio Lobos valley without knowing anything about it. Despite poor signposting I got there pretty easily although it's a long way off main roads. It feels special, with huge cliffs on either side and the sight of vultures at the entrance to the canyon. The rock formations and dead ancient trees by the hermitage are fascinating but the... More

Everyone would find something to love about this place. Short and long walks, accessible if you use a wheelchair or a seasoned hiker. Amazing views of vultures nesting and flying. A beautiful hermitage is a1km walk away from the car park. Beside the hermitage is an incredible cave with cave drawings. A great experience!

Beautiful landscape, we wished that we had had more time to walk in the canyon, it has the possibility to stretch anybody's legs. From vultures to little green frogs and a lone, very well behaved shepherd dog which came to cool off in one of the pools and then continued on its way, it was a lovely experience.

The birds roost along the cliffs of the gorge and set off when the air has warmed. In July this isn't until 09.30 ish and return in the early evening. A good place to view is from the Mirador above the park entrance. When the bird return they often seem to put on a show for those patient enough to... More

Firstly, if you visit el Cañon del Rio Lobos to walk, it's a good idea to go and talk to the guys in the information centre at Ucero first, they are (obviously) very well informed and we were glad we'd had the routes, timings, and parking arrangements explained before we headed into the canyon. The basic idea is that there... More

I visited Canon del Rio Lobos in June of 2012. It is a natural canyon area in Soria, northeast of Madrid about 2.5 hours by car. The landscape is that of deep cut canyons and ravines. The area is karsted so there are many very interesting topographical features to see. We hiked up to the canyon head (about 1km) from... More
