Bicycling and horse-back riding

The countryside of the Matarraña region attracts many travellers who are looking for some physical activity in a natural setting, such as biking or horse-back riding. The Via Verde is an ancient railroad track, which used to connect Tortosa on the coast to Alcañiz. It can be enjoyed on foot, or on a bicycle. Several companies rent bikes. Some come and pick you up downstream and bring you back to your car at the end of the day.

Another great outing for the physically fit is the mountain bike route of the Pedales de los Ports, which starts in Beceite.

Horse-back riding is another fun option.
