Trekking: El Picacho

Bookmark and Share


El Picacho is located within the Alcornocales Natural Park in Cadiz. From its summit at 882m superb panoramic views of Africa and Gibraltar can be had. The Alcornocales Natural Park is incredibly rich in exotic flora and fauna, and within its Pine and Cork tree jungle you will be able to find the Drosophyllum lusitanicum, a native carnivorous plant of the Western Mediterranean. However, it doesn't end there; keeping you company throughout your visit will be gigantic vultures and eagles.

Barbary Rock Adventures offer a guided service for El Picacho. It is a perfect location for anyone looking to get some amazing photographs of the local wildlife, and with our expert guidance that can be easily achieved.
