Explore Seville and Córdoba, tuck into mouthwatering tapas, watch a fiery Flamenco show and search for Iberian lynx and other wildlife in the Sierra de Andújar National Park

This is the perfect long weekend escape for lovers of wildlife, combining time spent in two of Andalucía's most elegant cities with two days exploring the glorious rural landscapes of one of Spain's best national parks. You will be part of an intimate tour group with no more than eight guests.

This four-night adventure starts in the beautiful Andalucían city of Seville, where you'll check into your hotel and have some free time to explore at your own pace. Get your fix of culture, architecture and mouth-watering tapas before travelling to the Sierra de Andújar National Park which will be your base for the next couple of days.

From your base in a family-run guest house right in the heart of the national park, you will explore the great outdoors on the prowl for the Iberian lynx. You'll have plenty of chances to spot this big cat during your stay, as the visit takes place during mating season, when sightings of this endangered feline are at their highest.

After two days soaking in the rich biodiversity and jaw-dropping landscapes of Sierra de Andújar, you'll travel back to Seville, stopping in Córdoba on your way.

You'll pay a visit to the ornate Mezquita, Córdoba's Great Mosque, which was turned into a cathedral in the 13th century, and marvel at its distinctive tiered arches. You can even climb the bell tower for sweeping views over the city and appreciate its beauty from above.

Your tour ends where it began, in wonderful Seville. This city is the birthplace of Flamenco, and you'll get the chance to attend a passionate and intimate performance while staying in the city.
