Description of the route

GR 99, “Camino Natural del Ebro”, ends at this stage 42, with a long and flat route through the Delta del Ebro Natural Park and the large rice paddies.

After visiting Amposta, the Terres de l’Ebre Museum and the suspension bridge, we follow the channel on the left of the Ebro to follow the road to the municipality of Deltebre. (13.6 km)

Continuing along the bank of the Ebro river we arrive at the new fishing port of the town and go up to the small viewpoint of the “Muntell de les Verges”, from where we reach the Garxal Lighthouse, the official mouth of the Ebro. (12.8 km)

Turning around the Garxal lagoon, part of the Natural Park, you reach the Riomar Viewpoint on the seafront, where stage 42 and GR 99 end (2.7 km).
