Diary of active nature holidays

Night party hunting the red swamp crayfish

Day 1: Arrival at the Brugent Valley, at your agrotourism acccommodation. In the evening, you will go to hunt the red swamp crayfish in the Glorieta Valley, the invasive exotic species that is troubling the white-clawed crayfish. The local biologist Jesús, working hard in several projects trying to eradicate this species from our rivers, will be your expert guide and will also introduce you into Prades mountain range.

There is also the option to go hunting the red swamp crayfish on the next morning. 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.

Day 2: Free day to relax in the Brugent Valley and your accommodation. You can enjoy a guided visit by Teresa, the owner and cook of the accommodation, to the Aroma Park, getting to know the mediterranean herbs and their thousands-year old medicinal uses. Or/And savour an organic lunch with some of the freshly picked herbs!
