Last days we have been lucky enough to road trip our beloved northern Spain. This is the first post of a nature series we will be posting these days.
Just a stone’s throw away from Santander, Cabarceno Nature Park is worth a visit. Although an entry fee is charged (10 – 24€), one can be delighted for hours wandering around among more than 50 different wild species living on a semi-freedom basis in a former iron mine environment.
More ethical than a zoo and fully outdoors, the only thing to be implemented would be the possibility of wandering on foot. Admissions are only by car in order to get everywhere easily and not disturb the animals. That said, we believe everyone lucky enough to be spending some time in the north of Spain should check it.
Have you been to Cabarceno or a semi-wilderness park like this one?
2021 update: Please note this is a very old post that does not necessarily reflect our views regarding sustainable tourism anymore. Thanks for your understanding.
