Full day trip with a private guide

Have you heard of the spectacular Doñana National Park or the charming village of El Rocio? Have you heard people talk about the wild and windswept beaches of the Costa de la Luz? Now you have the option of enjoying an amazing day out visiting the unique village of El Rocio, discovering the beautiful scenery in Doñana National Park; home to thousands of birds and unique ecosystems, and soaking up the sun or taking a dip in the Atlantic Ocean on the Costa de la Luz.

An extra option includes a ride in a 4 by 4 through the National Park or a horse riding tour through the park and its beaches.


After Hotel pick up we will drive from Seville to El Rocío during 50 min. Once in the charming village of El Rocío we'll have a stop to savor a coffee or have a typical breakfast(optional but highly recommendable). After visiting El Rocío and its picturesque church we will have a walk of approximately 1hr through the National Park. Afterwards, we will visit the interpretation center of the park and the marshland which can present a very different landscape depending on the recent rain fall. Then we will walk through the National Park to an untouched beach belonging to the protected area. There we will have the chance to have a swim in the Atlantic Ocean and enjoy the view of the cliffs. For lunch we can either buy sandwiches to have a picnic on the beach or have fresh fish on a restaurant close to the beach (to be decided on the spot). After a full day of sun, sea and extraordinary nature we will arrive at the hotel around 6. 30 pm. This itinerary could change depending on the extra activities(horses or 4x4)

A Recent Review of this tour

David was an excellent guide taking us to El Rocío was really interesting, learning the history about the village and the religious ceremony, then taking us to various different areas in the National Park to see all the different birds and plants. He was very knowledgeable about the fauna and flora. Such a lovely fish lunch in a restaurant overlooking the sea and then to see the sand dunes before our trip in a 4 x 4 around more areas of the park. He made us feel at easy at all times during the tour
