What will we see during our tour?

Our day trip will start around 9:00 am. Our guide will pick you up at the meeting point you have selected to set off for Aracena, our first stop.

There we will visit the impressive Gruta de las Maravillas (the Cave of Wonders), a natural cave near Seville brimming with geological formations, such as stalagmites and stalactites, that will take your breath away.

After leaving the Cave of Wonders, we will take a walk through the Dehesa de Sierra Morena, a natural area declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, which is also the habitat of species, such as the Spanish Fighting Bull or the Iberian Pig. This area is world famous for its production of Iberian Ham.

Afterwards, it will be time to take a break for lunch and enjoy the delicious gastronomy of the area in one of its bars or restaurants. Our clients will also have the option of eating their own meal or picnic if they wish.

After lunch, our tour will continue through some of the most beautiful villages in the Sierra de Aracena. We will make a brief stop at the Peña de Arias Montano to enjoy one of the best landscapes in this natural environment.

The last stop of our tour will be at the Riotinto Mines. We will walk through a landscape where it is inevitable to have the impression of being on a strange planet. This effect is due in part to the reddish color of the water as it flows through the iron and copper mines.

Our visit to the Riotinto Mines will be the final stage of our journey. On our way back to Seville, we will feel fulfilled after spending a fantastic day trip in the heart of an amazing natural environment. We hope to arrive in Seville around 19:00h.
