Upper Rock Nature Reserve, Gibraltar

4.2
#4 of 18 in Wildlife in Gibraltar
Home to Europe's only population of free-roaming primates as well as nearly 600 species of plants, Upper Rock Nature Reserve also serves as a staging post for thousands of migratory birds. Ride a cable car to the reserve or hike up a narrow road (which you'll share with light traffic). For a bigger challenge, climb the steps running up the east side of the Rock. Hiking or climbing will yield more diverse vistas and encounters with the monkeys in their natural habitat, instead of interacting with them in a large group of tourists. By using our Gibraltar trip itinerary site, you can arrange your visit to Upper Rock Nature Reserve and other attractions in Gibraltar.
