Full description

Departing from Seville and after picking you up at your hotel's door, our destiny is the Rio tinto (Red) River. Owner of a particular red color, its waters contains high levels of iron and lack of oxygen. For many years, it was considered a "death river" because it does not present the normal conditions to suport animal life. Recently, it was found that some algae, feeding on minerals, were adapting themselves to this extreme habitat! NASA made certain investigations to this waters due to the similarities with the planet Mars!

The next stop is at the Dehesas De Sierra Morena Biosphere Reserve with three parks: Natural Park of Sierra de Hornachuelos, Sierra Norte Nature Park and, Sierra de Aracena and Picos de Aroche Natural Park. This natural area offers you the chance to see some of the bulls used for bullfighting and the Iberian pigs that provide the famous Jámon Iberico (Spanish Ham).

The tour will continue to the town of Aracena where the famous Castle and the Church will be visited. You will also have the opportunity to visit The Cave of Wonders (Gruta de las Maravillas). The scenery of these caves was formed over many thousands of years through a process known as “karstification” - the slow erosion of limestone, gradually dissolved by carbonic acid, producing fissures, sinkholes, underground streams and caverns.

In a beautiful valley, in the heart of the Sierra de Aracena Natural Park, between holm oaks and chestnut trees, you will find the Peña de Arias Montano. An authentic natural monument with splendid views over the Sierra de Aracena and that owes its name to one of these characters in the history of Spain, Benito Arias Montano.

This tour ends at your hotel's door!
