Donana National Park and El Rocío
Make your reservation
Our excursion to Doñana will start from Seville in the company of one of our specialized guides for an unforgettable day. Our first stop will be the Sevillian town of Puebla del Río, gate of the Doñana wetland.
The ecosystem in this city is one of the most special, because it is the pasture where Europe’s largest white stork colony is located. Here visitors can observe hundreds of birds in their natural habitat.
Each year, the marshes house approximately a 200,000 population of more than 300 species of birds. This makes it the most important natural space on the continent. This place also has the rice field with the highest production in Spain and, due to its impressive natural beauty, is also the location where they filmed the Spanish film The Minimum Island.
The tour will continue until you reach the northern part of the Doñana National Park, arriving at the Village of El Rocío known for its famous pilgrimage. It is an evocative village of other times in Spain where a typical atmosphere of other centuries is recreated, as if it were a journey through time with its sandy streets traveled by horses and people on foot.
We will visit it’s surroundings until we reach the famous Shrine of Our Lady of the Dew, to its hermitage of El Rocío. Here more than one million people gather every year to participate in one of the most important religious pilgrimages on the planet.
After visiting the village of El Rocío we will visit the impressive Palacio del Acebrón next to the Arroyo de la Rocina to see another one of the Doñana ecosystems: the gallery forest. We will do a circular hiking route while interpreting animal trails, and learn some indigenous plant species of this natural environment.
At the end of this hike, we will take a short break for lunch to taste the typical cuisine of the area. Then we will go to the next ecosystem of our visit: the beach.
Spanning more then 30 kilometers, the coast of Doñana is the longest pristine beach in Spain. We will meet, in a quick tour, its peculiar transforming dunes where we can observe flora and fauna characteristics found in this ecosystem. In addition, if the weather is good, you can enjoy a refreshing swim to end your day.
As dusk falls across this landscape, we will begin the return to Seville crossing, in our 4×4, the forested area of the Doñana National Park to be able to see some of the great mammals that inhabit the area and see the famous Iberian Lynx, emblem animal of the Doñana National Park.
