Birding by Bike Trip in Doñana, Spain

Doñana Birdwatching Trip on an Electric Bike

This is a 1-day Birding by Bike Trip in Doñana that is available upon request and offers a unique experience of birdwatching in Doñana National Park. The day requires a moderate level of fitness as you will be birdwatching on a bicycle for approximately six hours. However, the fact the the bikes are electric takes a lot of the heavy work out of touring around. We can also adapt our birding by bike trip to suit every level of cycling ability, from experienced to novice, and vary the distances travelled from 20km to 80km. The timings of the breaks will be tailored to give everyone a chance to spend quality time observing the birds we see along the way.

Birdwatching by bike is not only a low environmental impact activity overall, it is also a wonderful way to cover a variety of habitats that the Park has to offer and do it in a way that minimises disturbance of the wildlife. Travelling at a leisurely speed allows you to use all your senses to take in the natural world around you. And doing a bit of gentle exercise can greatly increase a birdwatcher's feeling of achievement!

Doñana National Park is situated in the estuary of the Guadalquivir River, which makes the terrain relatively flat, something that helps to make a birding trip by bike something that's accessible to most people and fun for all. And being on two wheels enables you to travel further than you could on foot and venture into areas of Doñana where birds reproduce, feed and roost.

On our day trip you pass through Mediterranean forest and areas of natural marshland accompanied by an experienced guide who knows the best places to make a stop for some great birdwatching. Being local, your guide can also provide a lot of information about Doñana and its importance for both resident and migratory birds, and tell you about the conservation efforts that are taking place to ensure the survival of endangered species such as the Spanish Imperial Eagle.

Birding by Bike Trip in Doñana highlights include:

  • A low environmental impact way to get closer to your target birds
  • A day in one of the most biodiverse areas of southern Spain
  • A fun ride through a variety of habitats and a chance to add some top species to your list

If you have more time on your holiday to spend birding then why not check out a longer tour? Have a look at the Birding the Strait Migration Tour, Tarifa, Spain.
