Description of the route

This route starts at the Amposta Tourist Office.

With the Ebre on the left, continue ahead in search of the river promenade, 300 metres away. Once on the promenade, and always with the Ebre on our left, we continue ahead for 800 metres until we reach the Km0 of the towpath; point where the route of the Delta towpath begins.

The path is crossed by a protective wooden fence.

After 2.4 km you reach the Sínia, a construction that was used to raise water from the river to irrigate the nearby fields.

Continuing along the path, after 3.2 km you reach the island of Sapinya (km 5.6), an island that has been declared a partial nature reserve. Continue on for 2.9 km until you reach Balada (km 8.5), a small village located opposite the island of Gracia, next to the river Ebro.

On the way from Balada to Sant Jaume, the island of Gracia is on the left. Finally, you reach Sant Jaume (km 11.3). At this point you can cross the Ebre by the “Pasador” and link up with the itinerary (Ecomuseum-mouth) and the GR 99 Camins Naturals.

Continuing along the path of Sirga and after 1.7km you reach the Bosquet de la Comandanta (km 13), one of the few formations of riverside woodland with a certain entity and density. Leaving the Bosquet behind, you head towards the Migjorn river, 8.6 km away, the end of the Camí de Sirga, for a total distance of 21.6 km one way.
