What should you expect in this olive oil tour in Cadiz province?
We can arrange the transportation for you from anywhere in Cadiz or Seville. If you have your own transport we can offer a guide to guide you through this White town and Olive oil tour in Cadiz province, or we can arrange for you just an olive oil tour from Cadiz, Seville Jerez de la Frontera or Vejer de la Frontera in an olive oil mill.
If you want to enjoy one of the white towns of Cadiz, considered some of the most beautiful towns in Spain, then be fascinated by this private tour. The “De la Frontera” towns and villages are some of the most stunning and best preserved in Spain. We offer two alternatives depending where you are coming from Zahara de la Sierra or Vejer de la Frontera. Both, together with four more villages in Cadiz province, are officially recognised as one of the most beautiful towns and villages in Spain and it is easy to see why!
We will enjoy a walk in the town and enjoy walking through its narrow, winding streets and whitewashed facades, hike to its ancient Moorish castle. From either, Vejer and Zahara, you will appreciate some of the best unbelievable views of all Cadiz province. Enjoy the views of other white towns, the turquoise lake or the sea, the Natural parks and olive tree plantation or rice fields.
Olive oil mill
From the top of Vejer or Zahara we will head to the Olive oil mill, and enjoy an Olive oil tour in Cadiz province. Here we will learn about the different olive types, and which olives are endemic of Cadiz. We will learn how olives are collected and then how olive oil is produced. If you come in the harvest season (October-December) you may be able to see and even do the "vareo", hit the tree wit a stick, traditional way to collect the olives.
If we have chosen Zahara de la Sierra we will head to a terrace where we will savour olive oil. By then we will start feeling hungry so we will eat in this olive mill where they will offer us traditional tasty food produced in this region throughout generations with wine and olive oil produced in these same lands. Finally we will head to a bar with outstanding views of Zahara de la Sierra and the lake and enjoy a coffee or a tea before we head back to the place of departure.
In contrast, if you have chosen Vejer de la Frontera we will also learn how organic wine is made. Here you will sample olive oil as well as some of their wines with local tapas. Their wines are found in the best fish and seafood restaurant in Spain in 2015. After relaxing for a bit we will end this private tour by taking you back to your hotel.
