Salto del Nervión, the largest waterfall in the Iberian Peninsula.

The source of the Nervión River, the origin of the Estuary of Bilbao, is the perfect place to spend a great day out with family or friends in an area of stunning natural beauty.

This magical spot, located between the provinces of Alava, Burgos and Biscay, is where we can find the highest waterfall in Spain, the Salto del Nervión.

The waterfall boasts a drop of more than 300 metres and rewards onlookers with a spectacular sight as the water cascades down and then collides with the rock of the mountain below.

It’s a natural beauty spot that attracts thousands of visitors and hikers throughout the year, especially in periods of heavy rain and when the ice starts to melt.
