Located in a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in the heart of La Rioja, El Cañón del Río Leza is a natural wonder situated only 30kms from Logroño. Its crags are home to various birds of prey, including griffon vultures and buzzards, which can regularly be seen hovering above. Even more amazing is the fact that it's the site of some of the best examples of fossilized dinosaur footprints that can be found anywhere in the world, which date back over 120 million years. Along with its diverse flora and fauna it also provides some of the best views imaginable both of the enormity of the canyon itself and the surrounding mountain ranges. The excursion is an out-and-back route of approx. 5kms with a total ascent of 200m. In order to reach the start point of the hike in the village of Soto en Cameros, you'll be picked up and thereafter dropped off at your accommodation in Logroño. The excursion is offered in a half-day-format (approx. 4-5 hours) and includes drinks and snacks. Come prepared to be awestruck by the stunning vistas and jurassic history of this marvel of nature. You won't be disappointed! NB: Please get in touch should the excursion not be listed as available on a day that you wish to participate. Changes to the calendar can always be made according to demand.
I've been an amateur athlete all my adult life and still regularly compete in endurance events, including trail and road running competitions as well as mountain bike races and sportives. I'm also a keen hiker and animal lover who loves going on weekend treks to the mountains with my dog, Bebo. Having previously hosted Airbnb guests in my home I now share my passion for running and the outdoors with visitors to Logroño. I am a qualified personal trainer with over 10 years' experience of preparing clients for various endurance events. Born in London to Spanish parents, in recent years I have lived for extended periods in Australia and Germany before finally settling in the wonderful region of La Rioja over 10 years ago. It's a place I fell in love with as soon as I arrived and my aim during our excursion is to show you why.
