Iberian Lynx Quest Tour, Doñana, Spain

Iberian Lynx Tour in Sierra de Andújar, Doñana

This 6-day Iberian Lynx Tour is specially designed to enjoy Nature in two of the most important ecosystems of the Iberian Peninsula such as the Mediterranean Forest and the marshes and forests of Doñana.

We will travel for 6 days to two natural spaces where the most threatened feline of the planet, the Iberian Lynx, still lives. From 2000 to the present day, we have been working with the species to increase the number of individuals that can re-conquer those territories from where it disappeared decades ago.

In search of this wonderful and threatened animal, we will tour the pastures of Holm Oaks and mountains of the Natural Park of Andújar in Sierra Morena, the Sotos, Glens, Veras and Forests of Doñana. These two natural reserves located in Andalucia are possibly two of the places where nature is still in its best-preserved state.

Here we will observe such interesting species that coexist with our Iberian Lynx, such as the Iberian Imperial Eagle (Spanish Imperial Eagle), Black Vulture, Golden Eagle, Focha Moruna (Red Crested Coot), Imperial Garza (Purple Heron), Blue Elanio (Black-shouldered Kite), Hispanic Goat (Spanish Ibex), Otter, Gamo (Fallow Deer), Muflon (Mouflon) and many more.

Our expert guides will accompany you throughout this Iberian Lynx Tour and explain everything that takes place around the world of the Iberian Lynx, its protection, the conservation projects that are being carried out, the main threats they suffer, the new protection measures that are being carried out for its protection and everything related to the ecology and biology of this threatened species.

In addition, we will enjoy the typical gastronomy of Andalucia, learn everything related to its culture, ethnography, folklore and traditional uses of each of the places we visit. The Iberian Lynx will be our guide and objective on this fantastic Iberian Lynx Tour through Southern Spain.

In order to observe the Iberian Lynx, we will discover a world around it that will surprise you!

  1. Unique experience
    Paul, Tine & Sanne14 Jul 2020







    Great trip with Sergio who knows this area very well and is keen to show you the right spots. A lynx passed us about 2 mtrs away and we were able to take some unique pictures. Unforgetable experience!!
  2. Iberian Lynx
    William02 May 2019







    Sergio is a very talented tour guide and his knowledge of the Iberian Lynx and its habitat is by far the best I have witnessed, having previously done 5 Lynx tours with other professional operators. He did provide us with 2 excellent sightings on the day and it is evident this is his backyard. His primary concern is the welfare of the animal so all in all a very professional company which I highly recommend.
  3. Great way to spot an Iberian Lynx
    Joey de Mol07 Jan 2019







    Our guide Sergio showed himself to be a very knowledgeable lynx expert, who was able to indicate some very good spots for lynx watching—even on a very busy public holiday. Going on a tour with him is a great way to (try and) spot the majestic Iberian Lynx.
