The Vall de Zafán Greenway was an old railway that joined two towns, Puebla de Híjar and Tortosa. This train carried some goods and passengers. The sinking of a tunnel in 1973 caused the line closing.
The Greenway is 99 km long and it goes between Teruel (Bajo Aragón and Matarranya counties) and Tarragona (Terra Alta and Baix Ebre counties). This route is downward because it goes towards the sea. So it is a perfect and pleasant path to cycle.
While you cycle along the Val de Zafán Greenway you will enjoy a unique agroforestry landscape, recently distinguished by UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve where nature and man coexist harmoniously.
It is also a typically Mediterranean landscape where olive trees, almond trees and vines will accompany you along this route. The greenway also follows the Ports Natural Park, the Benet Rocks, the Santa Bárbara mountain or the Canaletes river, some of the natural assets of the territory that will not leave you indifferent.
At the Algars river and through the Canaletes river valley, you will find different spots where you can take a bath and refresh yourself, one of the best known is the sanctuary of La Foncalda. The viaducts that cross this valley give the route an aerial character.
Further on there is the final stretch of the greenway, where our travelling companion is the majestic river Ebro. A much wider valley covered with citrus trees. The ecosystem of the Ebro gives us the chance to see the birds of the river and the birds near the delta. If we would like to reach the sea, there is the way of Santiago that leads us to the mouth of the river.
Montsport is located in Horta de Sant Joan, the starting point for most of the cycle tourists who follow the Via Verde. We are therefore located at a strategic point on the route and one of the most important tourist destinations in the area.
At Montsport we offer all kinds of logistical possibilities and the necessary equipment to enjoy the Via Verde in total comfort.
Thus, we have new mountain and touring bikes, all of them with gears to make the route easier and more pleasant. Accessories for the little ones. Family bikes (2 adults and 2 children) are ideal for a family experience. New this year are TEAMbikes, plus a fleet of six vans.
