Our excursion to Doñana will start from Seville in the company of one of our specialized guides to enjoy a wonderful day in nature.
Our first stop will be the Sevillian town of Puebla del Río, at the gates of the Doñana marshes . Completely crossed by the Guadalquivir River, in this municipality we find one of the best preserved wild olive forests in the area, the Dehesa de Abajo, which is home to the largest colony of white storks in Europe that take advantage of the treetops and the nearby La Rianzuela lagoon to nest. The small elevation of this meadow above the marsh is ideal for observing hundreds of birds in their natural habitat and the flat landscape of the marsh.
Each year, the marshes give shelter to approximately 200,000 individuals of more than 300 different bird species , which makes this place the most important natural area on the European continent. The area is also the largest rice field in Spain by planted area, and the one with the highest productivity thanks to the high summer temperatures and the water available in its surroundings thanks to the Guadalquivir. Its peculiar geography and landscape have been the scene of such famous filming as the award-winning film Isla Mínima.
Leaving the rice fields behind, we will continue our tour until we reach the northern area of the Doñana National Park, and we will stop to visit the Village of El Rocío, famous throughout the country for its pilgrimage. An evocative village of other times in Andalusia, where a typical Andalusian atmosphere of past centuries is recreated, as if it were a trip back in time, with its sandy streets crossed by horses and people on foot.
The excursion will go through the village until it reaches the famous Sanctuary of Nuestra Señora del Rocío , in its popular Hermitage , where more than a million people gather each year to participate in one of the most important religious pilgrimages on the planet.
After getting to know the village of El Rocío, we will visit the Palacio del Acebrón next to the Arroyo de la Rocina and discover another of Doñana’s ecosystems: the gallery forest . We will do a circular hiking route while we will interpret animal tracks and we will know some endemic plant species of this natural environment. At the end of this path and take a short break for lunch tasting the typical gastronomy of the area , we will go to the next ecosystem of our visit: the beach .
With more than 30 kilometres, Doñana beach is the longest virgin beach in Spain, reaching from the famous town of Matalascañas to the mouth of the Guadalquivir river off the coast of Sanlúcar de Barrameda. We will get to know, in a short tour, its peculiar mobile dunes where we will be able to observe the flora and fauna characteristic of this ecosystem. Also, if the weather is good, you can enjoy a refreshing swim that will be very rewarding. Don’t forget to bring your swimwear if you visit us in summer!
In the middle of the sunset, we will begin our return to Seville, crossing the wooded area of the Doñana National Park in our 4×4 to be able to see some of the large mammals that inhabit it, such as the deer, the fox or the wild boar, and try to see the icon of the park, the famous Iberian lynx.
Also remember that this excursion is available to do it privately with whoever you want.
