What should you expect of this Hiking tour with views in Cadiz?
Welcome to Cadiz in Costa de la Luz, Andalusia. Join me in this hiking and photography tour in Cadiz, that consists of a 3 hour hike in the magical El Estrecho natural park.
Cadiz province is one of the most biodiverse provinces in mainland Spain. It may be because we are at the southernmost point of western Europe, only 14km from Africa. Habitats range from dense forest reminiscent of cloud forest to Mediterranean forest, dune systems, and more. Moreover, Cadiz has over a third of its surface protected, while its climate/sunlight hours are similar to Canary Islands. El Estrecho Natural Park protects the most southern shore of continental Europe. El Estrecho Natural park has incredible views of the Strait of Gibraltar, different white towns in Cadiz and magical landscapes. This makes it idoneal for photographers.
In this photography hiking tour we do a 3 hour hike with medium-high difficulty. During this hike we will visit 3 viewpoints which are perfect for photographers or instagrammers in Cadiz. As well, we will learn about the culinary, medicinal and traditional use of Mediterranean plants while taking in incredible views from viewpoint to viewpoint. This tour can be great for birding as we will be hiking in a protected area and there are some great bird-watching points where we overlook different species.
