Culinary and hiking tours in Cadiz province

 
Hola! My name is Carlos and I am the  main guide of Explore la Tierra, based in Vejer de la Frontera. I do culinary and hiking tours in Cadiz province. In these private guided hiking tours in Cadiz province I offer incredible hikes in La Breña, El Estrecho and Los Alcornocales natural parks while learning about local traditions and about the culinary, medicinal and gastronomical use of the Mediterranean plants. Habitats range from dense forest reminiscent of cloud forest, laurisilva, to Mediterranean forest, dune systems, and more.
Cadiz province is home to one of the most known international wines, the famous sherry wine. I do private sherry and Andalusian wine tastings in Cadiz as well as private virtual sherry tastings from home. Join our culinary and cultural tours, where we go and visit the famous white towns of Cadiz and learn about the traditional bluefin tuna fishing method, almadraba, or visit a local olive press, almazara. I look forward to showing you this incredibly diverse province in the most southern point of mainland Spain.
If this is what you are looking for, then contact me to help you design your perfect holiday in Cadiz.  I can help you create your own private bespoke tour.
