Diary of active nature holidays

On Thursday, the 14th: NIGHT POPULATION SURVEY OF THE WHITE-CLAWED CRAYFISH

Arrival at the Brugent Valley, at your agrotourism acccommodation. In the afternoon, enjoy a nice walk along the ancient footpaths down to the river Brugent. With the biologist Jesús, director of the conservation of the white-clawed crayfish in Prades Mountains, you will get to know how to find this endangered species and count them.

On Friday, the 15th: HUNTING THE RED SWAMP CRAYFISH.

In the morning, you will drive downstream the river Brugent to find the red swamp crayfish, the invasive exotic species that is troubling the white-clawed crayfish. As they have night habits, you will find them in the traps left the day before by the biologist Jesús. You will learn to distinguish them and discover the terrible effects that it has on the authocthonous population.

On Saturday, the 16th: NIGHT WALK UP THE PEAK OF PRADES MOUNTAINS.

In the afternoon, guided walk up to the summit of Muntanyes de Prades, called Tossal de la Baltasana, that will let you enjoy splendid views under the changing lights of the sunset. After the dinner, we will enjoy the sounds of the nocturnal nature while we walk back to the village.
