On this guided tour you will be able to see first hand the territory that the Iberian lynx inhabits. Our guides will show you aspects of its ecology, its behavior, the conservation actions that have been carried out for its recovery and we will make short waits with optical material to try to observe it in the public areas of the Sierra de Andújar Natural Park and the Special Zone of Conservation of the Rumblar, Guadalén and Guadalmena Basins. In addition, we will look for traces, footprints and signs that indicate their presence.
Keep in mind that it is a general tour, more recommended for families with children or for those who are not used to spending many hours waiting in the field, in which we will also try to observe other species of flora and fauna, such as the Iberian imperial eagle, griffon and black vultures, the golden eagle, or all those species present in the territory that the visitor wishes to discover. In addition, the route lends itself to observe other species such as the Iberian deer, the fallow deer, the mouflon or the mountain goat with relative ease.
We will move quietly through the best lynx territories in our 4x4 vehicle, enjoying the scenery and the tranquility that one of the least inhabited places on the Iberian Peninsula offers. Depending on the time of year, some species or others may be observed.
Of course, observing without filling your stomach is complicated, so we include a breakfast with coffee to taste in the field or a picnic afternoon snack of local products.
This activity may be too basic for those seeking to penetrate deep into the territory of the Iberian lynx, and although it is difficult to observe the feline for having a reduced schedule, sometimes with patience and luck, it is possible.
