“The Strait of Gibraltar” Hiking trip COSTA DE LA LUZ Y SIERRA DE ANDALUCIA

 COSTA DE LA LUZ Y SIERRA DE ANDALUCIA
We offer you a tour of the southernmost territory of both Spain and Europe, picking a
seven -day route that goes through both coast and mountains. Campo de Gibraltar is a
region located southeast of the province of Cadiz acting as a border between Europe
and Africa, as well as the Gateway between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean
Sea. That and the colony of Gibraltar makes it one of the top strategic locations in
Europe.
We’ll enjoy two natural parks, Los Alcornocales Natural Park is a forest of beautiful cork
oaks. It is considered the last European forest. The second Natural Park will be the
strait of Gibraltar, where hundreds of millions of birds cross every year during their
migration between Europe and Africa, making it not only one of the most prominent
destinations for bird watching, but one of the most ecologically diverse places in
Europe too
