In this activity we will take a guided tour in a 4x4 by expert local guides, to observe and hear the Deer Bellowing at sunrise or sunset in the Despeñaperros Natural Park (Jaén).  The route runs through areas restricted to motor vehicles.


We will get to know the habitat of the Iberian Deer, its ecology and its behaviour, and we will make various stops at strategic places to search for them with optical equipment (binoculars and telescope), as well as learning about aspects of the biology of other species, such as the fallow deer, the mouflon, the wild boar or birds that we find on our way.


The Despeñaperros Natural Park is one of the smallest natural parks in Andalusia, but it is home to a great natural, geological, historical and cultural heritage that has been forged over millions of years. Here, an interesting set of cave paintings was also captured that prehistoric humans captured in caves and rock shelters.

We will start the day at dawn or mid-afternoon, looking for the different species that this corner of Sierra Morena offers us. In the Despeñaperros Natural Park we can observe different species of wild fauna: deer, fallow deer, mountain goat, Iberian imperial eagle, griffon vulture or peregrine falcon.

Forests of holm oaks, cork oaks, rockroses, gall oaks, Pyrenean oaks or repopulated or different pines will give us a general vision of this characteristic landscape that opens the doors of Andalusia to us.

The activity is carried out in very small groups.


Of course, observing without filling your stomach is complicated, so we include a free-range breakfast or afternoon snack of local products to taste in the field (depending on the activity schedule).
