Spain - The Best of Coto Donana in Spring

Tour Code: ESP34

A thorough, 5-day exploration of the magnificent Coto Doñana National Park in search of the incredible birdlife of both its best and least known corners, in the company of local conservationists.

5 days from £1095(inc flights) Land Only Price: £975 SRS: £95


In spring the marshes of the Coto Doñana attract an amazing variety of birds and offer one of the greatest ornithological spectacles on the continent. El Rocío, a delightful village with sandy streets that overlooks the lagoon, river and marshlands of the Doñana, provides a fine base as we explore in detail the wide range of habitats in the region: the mosaic of marshes, Stone Pine woodland, open grassland and heathland, freshwater pools and coastal sand dunes. On one day we will use 4x4 vehicles to explore the more inaccessible reaches of the park, and on another we'll explore the rice paddies and reedbeds north of the Guadalquivir River.

  • Purple Gallinule, Marbled Teal, Crested Coot & Spanish Imperial Eagle
  • Azure-winged Magpie, Great Spotted Cuckoo & Red-necked Nightjar
  • Collared Pratincole, Slender-billed Gull, Gull-billed Tern & Lesser Short-toed Lark
  • Bee-eaters, Golden Orioles & Nightingales add a splash of colour & song
  • Mammals may include Red & Fallow Deer, Wild Boar & even Iberian Lynx!
  • Comfortable, central base, just a stone's throw from all the action
  • Expertly guided by a Naturetrek ornithologist

Sergio's local knowledge was excellent and he offered advice on what could be seen in various local areas. The hotel was very good and ideal for this trip, comfortable rooms overlooking the marismas and the restaurant served wonderful food.
