Salburua is a wetland made up of several lakes surrounded by damp meadows, poplar woods and a small oak wood. Located on the outskirts of the city of Vitoria-Gasteiz, it was drained years ago for farming. Work to recover the wetlands to their former state began in 1994 and today Salburua is one of the most valuable wetlands in the Basque Country.
There are several routes that surround and connect the main lakes. The Ataria information point and two bird observatories help you to discover and enjoy all the natural treasures of the wetland complex.
Created in 1994, Salburua has been included among the Wetlands of International Importance of the Ramsar agreement since 2002. It is proposed that it form part of the Natura 2000 Network.
