Discover the Rio Tinto Mining Park

This first day will mix history, nature and the adventure of travelling by train between the mines. The itinerary proposes a visit to all the attractions of the Rio Tinto Mining Park. There are five in total and it is estimated to take just over six hours (including museum, mines and a ride on a tourist train). During this time, you must also add the time for lunch. The whole family will delve into the history of the mines in this area, exploited by the British Rio Tinto Company Ltd between the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. Ready? Bring water, snacks, sandwiches, fruit and all the elements to protect the family from the sun.

A Day in The Doñana National Park

The last day of the trip will be full of nature. You will visit the Doñana National Park, one of the most important nature reserves in Europe where various ecosystems such as dunes, pines forest and marshes coexist. The marshes are the breeding and passage area for more than a thousand species of African and European birds, making the park a very good place for birdwatching. Children can be very interested in this activity. As well as watching birds and other animals such as the Iberian lynx, you can go hiking and choose from activities such as 4x4 tours or horseback riding (activities must be booked in advance). Ready?
