ecotourism linked to conservation...
Birds&Lynx Ecotourism is a company which was born with the objective of offering you the best guided services for wildlife observation in the south of the Iberian Peninsula, mainly Andalusia. Our headquarters is located in the middle of Sierra Morena, in La Carolina (Jaén).
Ecotourism is a type of alternative tourism in which sustainability, commitment to the environment and appreciation of the territory in which it develops are priorities, both environmentally and culturally.
Together with the biodiversity conservation, ecotourism is for us a strong commitment with which we intend to value our country and share it with local people and other nationalities. In this way, we have designed a complete program of activities based on the observation of nature, which aims to offer an alternative to the traditional activities of the territory, and with which we hope to meet your expectations.
We are naturalists with specific academic training in Biology, Management and Organization of Natural Resources and Landscapes or Management of Protected Areas, among others, and we have proffesional experience in the conservation and sustainable tourism fields, having worked with such emblematic species as the Spanish Imperial Eagle or the Iberian Lynx.
We organize guided tours all year long on demand, of different duration, from a single morning or afternoon, to a full day or several days, in order to show you the wildlife and landscapes of the protected natural spaces of Andalusia.
We generate wealth We avoid rural depopulation We contribute to the conservation of the environment We involve tourists in the conservation We promote local products We offer positive experiences
Birds&Lynx Ecotourism has 4x4 cars with 4+1 seats, to make your ecotourism experience more comfortable. In addition, if you are going to carry out the activity in group, we can put at your disposal vans of 8+1 seats.
We have two high-class telescopes, as well as 8x42 and 10x50 binoculars, with which you can enjoy wildlife observation with excellent optical quality.
We also offer a great group of field guides at your disposal to learn how to identify the species we observe: birds, insects, butterflies, plants, mammals...
We have collaboration agreements with different private farms in the province of Jaén, in order to offer you an exclusive and different experience, avoiding agglomerations and pressure on the territory at the time of most visitors, and therefore, in the fauna that lives there.
The use of the private estate reports to the owner of the farm economic benefit, in the same way that other uses such as livestock, hunting and beekeeping activities can do. In this way, we contribute directly to the conservation of natural space and environmental awareness of other users.
we are pet friendly
At Birds&LynxEcotourism we understand the importance of traveling with your pet, and it is not an impediment when carrying out certain activities in the natural environment.
We are a pet friendly company, so if you want your pet to join us, just let us know and we will try to do our best to make your pet have a unique experience.
Remember that, at all times, the animal must:
Use a harness during the whole activity.
Be under your strict control and supervision.
Be provided with water, food and everything you may need.
With all these measures, we ensure that our journey through the natural spaces in which our activities are carried out is totally respectful of the wildlife and other users.
