Responsible tourism of experiences with soul to calmly enjoy the nature and culture of Extremadura.

Verdehesa offers you tourist activities and experiences in the dehesas of the National Park and Biosphere Reserve of Monfragüe (province of Cáceres). These proposals are carried out in the field of nature tourism and agrotourism, with which we also try to promote sustainable rural development and the conservation and enhancement of natural and cultural heritage. Committed and responsible tourism!

In Verdehesa you will also find tourist experiences where nature is also a resource to improve your health. The contact with biodiversity, the absence of noise, the calm, the leisurely weather and the aesthetics of the landscape that Extremadura offers us restores us and increases our positive emotions, improving our physical and psychological well-being. And we help you to achieve it!

To make you fall in love with Extremadura, Verdehesa will also take you to exceptional Historic Sites and others landmarks of the region, which we will travel through together through the guided tours to make you feel the history of the different civilizations that have inhabited them and have left their legacy in a monumental heritage.

We accompany you on your guided tour to Cáceres, Trujillo, Plasencia, or Mérida to show you, in a different way, the impressive cultural legacy that our region treasures: cave paintings and archaeological sites from prehistoric times; Roman theaters and circuses; Islamic castles, walls and cisterns; Jewish quarters full of charm to follow the Hebrew trail; cathedrals, churches and convents of powerful religious orders and majestic Christian monarchs; and palaces and stately homes, cradle of prominent feudal lords and influential nobles.

If you add to all this our recommendations for your visit to enjoy the renowned gourmet products of the Extremaduran artisans of cheese, Iberian meats, wine, oil, … which have up to 12 Designations of Origin and Protected Geographical Indications, then you will not leave without enjoying the culinary delights of the region.

Our philosophy

In the design and development of all its activities and experiences, VERDEHESA, seeks:

  • To put into practice the sustainable and transversal dimension of tourism within the green and circular economy, as a generator of employment and wealth, and especially of agrotourism as a dynamic segment of the agricultural and livestock sectors and the production of artisanal products, which also contributes to the conservation of biodiversity.
  • To disseminate, enhance and, where appropriate, research and help to recover the natural, cultural and landscape heritage of Extremadura and especially the agrosilvopastoral system of the dehesa and the natural areas and villages in which it is located.
  • Encourage contact with nature to raise awareness of the quality of Extremadura’s environment as a resource for physical and emotional well-being for all ages.
  • Promote rural development acting as a catalyst for efforts to generate networking, collaboration and synergies between the agents of the Extremadura territory in an active and transformative way, promoting and inspiring citizen participation and innovation by developing activities that favor a positive transformation of the socio-economy of the community and its territory.
  • Promote sustainable and healthy food and food sovereignty in rural Extremadura, highlighting the value of quality food products, of the producers who make them possible and of the places destined to preserve this gastronomic heritage.
  • Promote the participation and give visibility to women in decision-making structures that affect the rural world (non-profit institutions, companies and local public services), as well as the promotion, impulse and effective achievement of equality between women and men in rural areas.
  • To contribute to public awareness of the problems of Climate Change, promoting the development of mitigation and adaptation actions to address the threat of aridity, which will affect the regions of Extremadura.
