What should you expect in my hiking tours in Cadiz?

Welcome to nature in Cadiz. My name is Carlos and I will be your guide. I am passionate about Spanish gastronomy as well as the environment. In fact, I worked in the environmental and conservation field in Canada, UK and Spain for 5 years. In these guided hiking tours in Cadiz province I try to mix both of my passions and focus on hikes from Chiclana to Los Alcornocales Natural Park. If you are looking to go hiking within Costa de la Luz in Cadiz province then you will be interested in this hiking tour.

Carlos Hiking tour guide Cadiz

Cadiz province is one of the most biodiverse provinces in mainland Spain. Habitats range from dense forest reminiscent of cloud forest to Mediterranean forest, dune systems, and more. Moreover, you will be seduced with views of magical landscapes in Cadiz and the Strait of Gibraltar. Cadiz has over a third of its surface protected, while its climate and sunlight hours are very similar to the Canary Islands.

In this guided nature tour we will discover Cadiz more in depth and learn about why our gastronomy is so rich. It is related to our climate, our location, our history, and to the many culinary, medicinal and traditional use of Mediterranean plants found within Cadiz province. You will find many of these plants in your supermarket in lotions, herbal teas, and to flavour your food or even eat them as part of your main plate.
