Tour to Find Iberian Lynx in Sierra de Andújar, Doñana
This 6-day Iberian Lynx Quest Tour is a leisurely paced, set departure tour, specially designed to enjoy nature in two of the most important ecosystems in the Iberian Peninsula - Mediterranean forest and the wetlands of Doñana.
Since the year 2000, Living Doñana has been working with the rare Iberian Lynx to increase the number of individuals to repopulate those territories they disappeared from decades ago. The aim of our tours is to raise awareness of this highly endangered animal and ensure its future in Spain.
"Great trip with Sergio who knows this area very well and is keen to show you the right spots. A lynx passed us about 2m away and we were able to take some unique pictures. Unforgettable experience!!" - Paul, Tine & Sanne
