TAILOR MADE TOURS

We can design customised tours according to your target species. Our priority is to offer you an exclusive experience. What do you want to see?

RAPTORS

Mountains, gorges, cliffs, Mediterranean forests and wetlands, are home to more than 20 species of raptors. Its proximity to the Strait of Gibraltar allows us to enjoy the great spectacle of migration. In addition, Sierra de Cadiz hosts one of the largest colonies of griffon vultures in Spain.

MOUNTAIN BIRDS

Sierra de Cadiz rises from its base at 200m to 1648m over sea level, in just 15km of ascent. This offers us the opportunity of reaching a lot of different mountain habitats in a relative small area, which means large number of birds in a single day of observation.

MEDITERRANEAN FOREST

Holm, portuguese and cork oaks, combined with a dense undergrouth of Mediterranean vegetation, represent perfect shelter for a large number of passerines and raptors. In addition, we can find the best preserved forest of the unique Spanish fir, endemism of the area that led to the declaration of this park as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

WETLANDS

We have the opportunity to visit several wetlands just at the base of Sierra de Cadiz, where we could enjoy a large number of waterfowl. Tamarix and shore forest are refuge and main roosting area for great number of herons, ducks, passerines or raptors. Enjoying the sunset over the wetlands could be the perfect ending for a birding day at Sierra de Cadiz.

This path delights us with the forest of pinsapos, unique fir that led to the declaration of these mountains as a Biosphere Reserve and Natural Park. The path begins to ascend between pines until you reach Puerto de las Cumbres, a natural pass to the north face of this mountain range. You can also see El Torreón, the highest peak in the province of Cádiz, and some fir trees that announce the proximity of the forest. As we enter the Spanish fir forest, the little light that penetrates the forest will draw our attent
