  • All the water they use is obtained from the river Muga and purified, and they treat the wastewater before returning it to the river. The water treatment station is biological (it uses natural bacteria only) and is able to purify the wastewater to levels well above those required by law. They are now carrying out a pilot test to use the treated water for the irrigation of common areas, so that treated water no longer has to be discharged into the river.
  • It was the first domotic camp site in Spain, and investment that allowed them to reduce energy consumption by 20%, working with only 100 KW of contracted power (in other similar camp sites the figure is between 200 and 400).
  • They carried out a study to achieve the necessary lighting intensity throughout the camp site in the most energy efficient way. They set out to ensure that at night the camp site could not be seen from the surrounding hills and have managed to minimise light pollution to almost zero.
  • They have installed a biomass boiler to provide heating and hot water for the main shower and toilet facilities; purchased new recycling points to help guests dispose of waste selectively (paper, plastic and oil), and have changed the lights in all the accommodation to LED bulbs which allow for more sustainable energy consumption.
  • Moreover, this is a resource that is integrated with the environment and that is based on the values of sustainability and respect, and there are educational activities designed to explore the local environment, such as astronomical nights, botanical visits, a wild mushroom fair, etc. and they have a project to take advantage of a spring declared to be of mineral-medicinal value so that it can be enjoyed by everyone.
