What to expect
Guided tour of the highlights of Doñana Park (Huelva)
This nature reserve, which is a unique landscape, has coastal wetlands that are the result of particularly complex interactions between physical and biological factors.
There are a multitude of transit habitats: sandbanks, seagrass beds, mussel beds, sandbanks, salt marshes, estuaries, beaches and dunes, pinewoods, cork oaks and heaths, and regularly flooded marsh areas of open lagoons.
This ecomosaic was created by the Guadalquivir River, which deposited sand and suspended matter at its mouth over thousands of years.
As the Danish Wadden Sea , Doñana attracts many migratory birds: it is estimated that six million of them stop in Doñana when they change their habitat in Africa to reach Europe in spring or autumn.
Many of them even make the leap to the other continent and spend the winter in the far south of Europe.
Doñana Park is one of the last large-scale intertidal natural ecosystems where five threatened bird species live. It is one of the largest herons in the Mediterranean region and the wintering ground for more than 500,000 water birds.
"La Dehesa de Abajo, in the Doñana region, is home to Europe's largest colony of white storks and a well-preserved wild olive forest."
With this excursion you will be welcomed in one of the last virgin areas of the southern coast of Spain, the Coto de Doñana National Park in Andalusia and "El Rocío Village" in the municipality of Almonte (Huelva).
The varied landscape of the Coto de Doñana National Park offers a mixture of many species that will delight birdwatchers.
Here you can see other animals, especially around the Laguna de Santa Olaya - the heart of the national park -: large imperial eagles, flamingos crossing the shallow waters, next to which are spoonbills and herons.
The deer, grazing on the grass in front of a pine tree crown in the shape of a small Christmas tree, are also reminiscent of the African savannah.It is estimated that six million birds stop here when they change habitats in Africa and Europe in spring and autumn. Many of them even skip the jump to the other continent and spend the winter in the far south of Europe.
Programme of your visit to Doñana and El Rocio
It all starts in the city of Puebla del Río
Here you can see the first rice fields, as the whole region holds the record for the largest rice production in Spain and its environment, thanks to its impressive natural beauty, has been the setting for many films, including the acclaimed Spanish film La Isla Minimima.
Afterwards, you will visit the Aldea del Rocío , known for its religious devotion and its famous Rocío pilgrimage, which is the most important in Spain.
Every year, on Pentecost , it attracts hundreds of thousands of pilgrims to the village of El Rocío (municipality of Almonte, province of Huelva) who come to honor Nuestra Señora del Rocío, also known as Blanca Paloma, La Pastora or the precious nickname : The Queen of the Marshes.
You will see for yourself the chapel of Nuestra Señora del Rocío that is visited by more than a million people during the annual meeting of devotees.
Often near the marshes that border the Aldea de Roció there are horses in semi-freedom that remind us of those of the Camargue.
After visiting the village of El Rocío , we will go to the impressive Palacio del Acebrón, located next to the Arroyo de la Rocina , and we will discover another ecosystem of Doñana: the gallery forest.
Along the way we will make a circular walk while we interpret the tracks of the animals and we will get to know some of the endemic plant species of the natural environment of Doñana .
Then we will have a short break to eat, tasting the typical cuisine of the area, and then we will go to the beach and the coast of Doñana.
With more than 31 kilometers, the Doñana coast is the longest virgin beach in Spain.
We will see its famous special dunes where we can observe the flora and fauna characteristic of this ecosystem.
Also, if the weather permits and you are free to do so, you can take advantage of this moment to take a bath, in summer this refreshing bath will be, believe me, welcome.
At the beginning of the sunset, we will start our return trip to Seville crossing, in 4×4, the wooded area of the Doñana National Park to see some of the large mammals that inhabit the area and maybe see, if we are lucky, the famous Iberian lynxThe emblematic animal of the Doñana National Park.
At the end of this excursion we will return to Seville. We will take you to the same place where we picked you up that morning.
