Spain is not only the southernmost, but also (after Switzerland and Austria), the most mountainous country in Europe. The weather is great all year, and this combined with its abundant wildlife and hunting opportunities, Spain has won well-deserved reputation as one of the most attractive in Europe for this sport. In Spain, there are 36 million hectares available for the practice of hunting, that makes this country a paradise for hunting.
