Private excursion to Doñana National Park from Seville
Our first stop will be the Seville town of Puebla del Río, at the door of the Doñana marshes. Completely crossed by the Guadalquivir River in this municipality we find one of the best preserved olive groves in the area, the Dehesa de Abajo. This place 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 dehesa over the marsh is ideal for observing hundreds of birds in their natural habitat and the flat landscape of the marsh. Leaving the rice fields behind, we will continue our tour until we reach the northern area of the Doñana National Park, and stop to visit the village of El Rocío, famous throughout the country for its pilgrimage. A village evocative of other times in Andalusia where a typical Andalusian atmosphere of past centuries is recreated, as if it were a journey back in time with its sandy streets crossed by horses and people on foot. The excursion will travel through the village until it reaches the famous Sanctuary of Nuestra Señora del Rocío, in its popular Ermita, where more than a 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 Acebrón Palace next to the Arroyo de la Rocina and there we will be able to discover another of Doñana’s ecosystems: the forest in gallery. We will make a circular hiking route while interpreting animal tracks and we will know some endemic plant species of this natural environment. At the end of this path, and a short break for lunch tasting the typical gastronomy of the area, we will go to the next ecosystem of our visit: the beach.What does it include?Professional guide.Private transport to Seville adm back.Guided tour through the differeng ecosystems of the National Park.Route in 4×4 through areas of Doñana with restricted access.
