The eco adventure begins with pickup at your Seville hotel in the morning and a drive south along the Guadalquivir River, passing through the riverside town of Coria del Rio. Continue on to reach Doñana National Park, which sits along the Gulf of Cadiz, offering a unique confluence of European and North African landscapes. This strategic location also makes the park an important destination for many species of migratory birds.
With the help of your naturalist guide, explore diverse landscapes such as the Abalario and Algaida Mediterranean pine forests and the marshes of Coto del Rey. Keep an eye out for the abundant wildlife species that call the park home, including the imperial eagle and a vast array of other birds, deer, wild boars, badgers, and the endangered Iberian lynx.
After spending time in the park, make a stop in the village of El Rocío, an important pilgrimage site that draws almost a million visitors each year to see the Virgin of El Rocío icon. Learn about the legends that surround this sacred statue, including its discovery by shepherds wandering among the wild ranges of Doñana National Park.
