Lobos River Canyon Natural Park

This space belonging to both the provinces of Soria and Burgos was declared a Natural Park in 1985 to protect its geological features, fauna and flora, as well as conditioning it for visitors.
There are about 75 kilometres from the capital and many ways of getting there. Two of the most common options are either on N-122 towards Valladolid or on N-234 towards Burgos. If you choose the first option, once reaching El Burgo de Osma, turn right towards San Leonardo de Yagüe and Cañón del Río Lobos. However, if you choose the second option, once reaching San Leonardo de Yagüe, take the detour towards El Burgo de Osma.

 

It is a deep 25-kilometre-long calcareous canyon formed by the erosion of the Lobos River passing through this land. The rest of the ensemble has been eroded forming a Karst landscape with some cenotes, and several caves, hills and sinkholes on the surface, and aquifers and underground rivers deep in the earth. The diversity of the canyon’s various layers give place to a wide range of plant species.

 

This deep canyon’s walls are populated by griffon vultures as well as other bird species such as the golden eagle, ospreys, snake-eagles, peregrine falcons, goshawks, kites, buzzards, kestrels, and other species common in rivers such as mallards or kingfishers, that hunt during the day. Nocturnal birds in this area are eagle owls, long-eared owls, common owls, tawny owls and little owls. Mammals that can be seen here are roe deer, wild boars, rabbits, squirrels, hares, foxes, martens and weasels. The most prevalent species of amphibians and reptiles in the canyon are mostly vipers, as well as water snakes, lizards and frogs.

 

You can go on any of the 15 short routes throughout the canyon.

 

One of the tours you can go on is through the Galiana Cave. Book your cave tour by calling +34 975 123 747; +34 627 916 107; +34 620 438 488, or visit www.soriaventura.com
