Passionate nature guide
A fabulous natural environment located between the provinces of Huelva, Seville (1 hour by car) and Cadiz, the Doñana National Park is a set of ecosystems that are home to an impressive biodiversity.
This natural reserve, which constitutes 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 meadows, mussel beds, sandbanks, marshes, estuaries, beaches and dunes, pine, cork oak and moor forests, and swampy areas that are regularly flooded with open lagoons.
This ecomosaic was created by the Guadalquivir River, which deposited sand and suspended matter at its mouth for thousands of years.
Like the Danish Wadden Sea, Doñana attracts many migratory birds: an estimated six million of them pause at Doñana when they change their habitat in Africa to reach Europe in spring or autumn.
Many of them even save the jump to the other continent and spend the winter in the far south of Europe.
Doñana Park is one of the last large scale natural intertidal ecosystems where and is the habitat of five threatened bird species. It is one of the largest herons in the Mediterranean region and the wintering place for more than 500,000 water birds.
Une excursion de 1 journée pour les passionnés de la nature au cours de laquelle nous découvrirons l'un des écosystèmes les plus remarquables d'Espagne et d'Europe comme l´est le parc national de Doñana, qui abrite des espèces menacées.

The varied landscape of Coto de Doñana National Park offers a mixture of many species that are a delight for birdwatchers.
Other animals can be seen here, especially around the Santa Olaya Lagoon – the heart of the national park: large imperial eagles, flamingos crossing the shallow waters, along with spoonbills and herons.
The deer, which graze the grass in front of the crown of a pine tree in the shape of a small Christmas tree, also remind us of the African savannah.
Perfect with your family and children for bird watching and the last Iberian lynx, one of the most threatened species by man, Doñana Park is REALLY AN INDISPENSABLE VISIT if you stay several days in Seville.
With this excursion you will be welcomed in one of the last virgin sections of the Spanish south coast, the National Park of El Coto de Doñana in Andalusia and “La aldea de El Rocío” in the municipality of Almonte (Huelva).
It all starts in the town of Puebla del Rio.
Here you can see the first rice fields, as the whole region holds the record for the largest rice production in Spain and its surroundings, thanks to its impressive natural beauty, have been the setting for many films, including the acclaimed Spanish film La Isla Mínima.
Then you will visit the Aldea del Rocio, known for its religious devotion and its famous Rocio pilgrimage, which is the most important in Spain.
Every year, in Pentecostés, attracts hundreds of thousands of pilgrims to the village of El Rocío (municipality of Almonte, province of Huelva) who come to honour Nuestra Señora del Rocío, also known as Blanca Paloma, La Pastora or the beautiful nickname: La Reina de las Marismas.
You will see for yourself the chapel of Nuestra Señora del Rocío which is visited by over a million people during the annual gathering of devotees.
Often near the marshes that border the village of Roció there are horses in semi-freedom that remind us of those in 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 discover another ecosystem of Doñana: the gallery forest.
On the way we will make a little circular walk while interpreting the footprints of the animals and we will get to know some of the endemic plant species of the natural environment of Doñana.
Then we will take a short break for lunch, tasting the typical cuisine of the area, and then we will head to the beach and the coast of Doñana.
We will see its famous special dunes where we can observe the flora and fauna characteristic of this ecosystem.
Also, if the weather allows it and you are free to do so, you can take advantage of this moment to swim, in summer this refreshing swim will be, believe me, welcome.
At the beginning of the sunset, we will start the trip back to Seville by crossing, in 4×4, the wooded area of Doñana National Park to see some of the large mammals that live in the area and perhaps see, if we are lucky, the famous Iberian lynx, the emblematic animal of 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.
This excursion to Doñana Park from Seville is a rewarding experience, ideal if you are a nature lover, or to show your children one of the few remaining biospheres that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1994.
