Extremadura is one of the most pristine and authentic regions in Spain. It is a great area for nature and culture lovers, people who love peace and of course for (nature) photographers, far away from mass tourism. The name ‘Extremadura’ has nothing to do with it having an extremely hard or rough climate, as sometimes erroneously is believed. For the Romans it was simply the area ´at the other (extreme) side of the Duero’. The climate is benign and the landscape is accessible throughout the year. Extremadura is a surprisingly watery part of Spain with numerous mountain streams, big rivers, lakes, ponds and marshland.
We have put together several suggestions for possible activities for a stay of a period between 2 days and 2 weeks. These suggestions will give you an idea of the many possibilities the area offers. These day programs hopefully inspire you and can be adjusted to your specific needs. You can also mix elements of the different sorts of programs we have put together (with emphasis on culture, nature or physical activity) to compose your own special and varied stay in Extremadura.
