Based on an old railway line with an interesting civil war history. Goes from Tortosa all the way up to Horta de St Joan and beyond. I recommend the sections from Xerta to Font Calda and from there up to Horta. We saw a lot of wildlife including wild boar and ibex. There are railway tunnels along the way, most are lit but a torch is handy. Look up Font Calda, a natural hot spring and swimming point. There's a hostel there too.

Hire a bike and ride through the beautiful Catalan countryside. This is a disused railway line with no cars or motor bikes. You can use an electric bike and push bike or just walk.

We did the bike tour from Arnes to Xerta (5+38 km) and it's mainly going downhill, so very easy.
The Via Verde is going through several tunnels and most of them have lights, still advise to make sure to have your bike lights. The roads are very well maintained and no cars allowed.
Rented MTBs in Arnes, very good quality and excellent service and good price.
Would really recommend this tour when you're in the neighbourhood of Tortosa.

The Via Verda del Baix-Ebre is an abandoned rail line that is now a bike and hiking trail from Tortosa to close to Alcañiz. It is surfaced, except for very short stretches traffic free and there are picnic and rest areas. The Via is also wheelchair accessible and in many places are info panels in Braille. Several of the old train stations have been turned into restaurants, some into hostels. The Via, being a train track climbs gently from the Ebro valley up into the mountains, through tunnels over viaducts through some spectacular scenery.

I live locally and have biked this route many times. It is possible to start 80km up, beyond Alcaniz, but the route gets easier (and more interesting) from Valderobes. There are many places to join this old railway line, which runs through long tunnels, (many of which have automatic lighting, but for those that don't, bring a VERY powerful torch) and over high viaducts over tumbling streams. It is well worth stopping at Fontcalda for a swim in the clear river Canaletes, and at Benifallet Station for a meal or a drink.

This walking and cycling track is popular with locals. In summer, it is best to go early in the morning as the weather gets very hot later in the day. The track passes through an urban area and then passes through old farms with derelict buildings.

Extending for 50 km from the coast through Tortosa to the mountains in Catalonia, this walking track follows an old railway line. The track is well marked and goes through a variety of scenery. I joined the track at the Antic Pont del Ferrocarril in Tortosa and soon had left the urban area and was walking through old villages and vineyards. The weather can be hot in summer so take water as there are few opportunities to buy on the way.

I liked this converted railway for a morning run because it is not crowded and there are no cars. The dedicated bridge over the Ebro river is very much helpful.

This great greenbelt riding trail is perfect for a long (or short) bike ride or stroll. It's protected from cars and continues along a dedicated pedestrian/bike bridge across the river. There it joins a continuation of the dedicated train some 80 km. This path is the site of an old railway track; it has been converted to the dedicated bike path, and the old stations serve as stopping points along the way. There's bike shop right near the bridge; had I found this before, I would have taken advantage of this lovely trail.

We have made this path with bike several times and we always enjoy it.
We made from Horta de Sant Joan to Pinell de Brai, it is about 20 km that you can made in 2 hours in a easy path, always with a slight down path. The views are amazing and better in spring.
The most important is don't forget an spotlight because you will cross several tunnels and some of them are completely dark. Enjoy!
