The route passes along the Guadalete River and through the unique Zaframagón Vulture Reserve where numerous vultures circle overhead. The route finishes in the picturesque village of Olvera.

There will be a lunch stop in the pretty village of Algodonales. We are staying just outside the town centre in a lovely hotel called “Los Tadeos” .
