Doñana National Park is part of the National Parks Network and with over 54,000 hectares, it represents the most important wetland area in Europe, being considered a World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve by Unesco.
Doñana is the result of the constant filling of the old estuary of the Guadalquivir river. This territory is characterized by the richness and diversity of species and ecosystems that it contains, and for being the passage and wintering area for a large number of species of European and African birds.
Doñana has three main ecosystems: the beach and mobile sand dunes, the Cotos or bushes with stabilized soil and the Marshes. Each ecosystem of the park has well defined ecological and biological characteristics.
The Guadalquivir River is an essential part of this Natural Area. Its waters sustain life in Doñana and create this unique ecosystem that is the marsh, which gives shelter to thousands of water birds in Europe.
Access into Doñana National Park is restricted due to the sensitivity of some of its ecosystems, so it is managed by concessionaires. Our company has had this award since 1993, carrying out visits into the park from the province of Cádiz.
The Visitors` Center “Fábrica de Hielo”(Ice Factory), from where the visits in Sanlucar de Barrameda start, has two exhibition areas; One of them which holds information about Doñana and the other which explains the evolution of man in this geographical area. Also, the center offers visitors a vision of the importance of the city in the discovery of America and the first circumnavigation of the world. This building also has a Bookshop, where visitors can buy publications and souvenirs of Doñana National Park.
