Very nice trip. Of course, in the morning, when you drive the SUV, you certainly won't see a lynx. We didn't have those expectations either, the rest was interesting. We saw some birds and of course staying by the sea was also a highlight.

great tour! You see birds, forestland, dunes and beaches in 1 trip. And guide had a lot of interesting background information, not only facts but also stories of local people in the past and funny aspects.

Thank you for this experience, A wonderful day. And we saw a lynx Bravo and a special mention for the two very competent and very friendly guides. Thank you

Miguel is very friendly and a fun companion. Many thanks and all the best. The tour should start earlier to have a chance to see animals
