Explore the Sierras de Andújar and Cazorla in Southern Spain to enjoy the incredible biodiversity and wealth of wildlife in one of the last remaining pockets of wilderness in Europe.

The gentle rolling hills of Sierra de Andújar have some of the best-preserved swathes of natural Mediterranean forest and scrubland in Spain. Weathered oak trees and grassy glades dominate with rocky outcrops punctuating the vegetation and it is in this expanse of relatively undisturbed habitat that we have the best opportunity for seeing Iberian lynx, the world's rarest cat.

However, the other defining feature of this region of Spain is the biodiversity of species that can be observed here. The locations for lynx are also reliable places for encountering red deer, otter, wild boar and fallow deer. To help us see more of the wonderful species found in this wilderness of Southern Spain, we also spend time at Sierra de Cazorla which is a haven to some of Europe's great raptors such as golden eagle, booted eagle, griffon vulture and the iconic lammergeier.

Our departures are scheduled for the winter months which are the optimum time for wildlife observation on these south Iberian sierras, and in particular increasing our chances of seeing Iberian lynx who are typically more active at this time of year. So, if you're looking for a week of rewarding wildlife watching at a relaxed pace in stunning scenery and comfortable accommodation accompanied by highly knowledgeable guides and good company with delicious food and drink, then Wild Spain is the perfect trip for you.
