This is a trip for those who enjoy nature, walking, sailing, watching our country fauna. It is a very complete route that includes several activities all developed in an exceptional location: the South West of Andalusia. Great beaches, enormous dunes and coastline pine forests, chestnut forest at the mountains or white villages with Arabian heritage. Pure Andalucía with an active style and far from crowded areas as classic tourism. Everything developed by us, with own guides, carefully designed routes. All the material is coming as well from Faro de Sur: bicycles, kayaks, sailing boat and van, in that way we achieve our goal of a perfect relation quality/price. We also have the help of Faro del Sur’s offices located in Isla Cristina. This is a very complete trip, different and it doesn’t need previous experience to do it, just an active spirit and normal fitness.
All the activities are subject to changes or suspension due to weather conditions or any other forces beyond our control.
Our kayaks are perfect to go slowly across the marshes. They are stable and do not need special skill to use them. Two people will be comfortable inside each kayak. We will bring a 26 l barrel where you can keep your personal items.
Related to similar kayaks, OCEAN DUO is the versatile kayak. Strong and comfortable, it could be used by one or two people. It is perfect for marshes and coastline. They can be emptied by themselves and unsinkable, what offers us complete safety warranty.
Before departure, we will give you basic instructions as to allow you to enjoy the route with your boat. Sailing silence is perfect in order to get as closer as possible to fauna and flora and feel ourselves integrated in nature.
OUR SAILING BOAT
Our sailing vessel is ideal for a safe sailing with no chance for starts. Driving the boat is easy with our skipper’s help, who is going to teach us about the art of navigation. The comfortable mats allow us to sunbathe while we sail to the horizon. Inside the boat, you have all you need, wood living room, kitchen, toilet, hot water shower. From the boat stern, we can jump into the sea.
The sailing boat has all required safety equipment: life jackets, GPS that gives us information about our position, sounding line, automatic pilot and radio for contacting with ports.
Faro del Sur has two minibusses that are used for all groups. Each one is comfortable and has enough room for eight passengers, the driver/guide and all luggage. The vans provide permanent backup for any eventuality during the stay in Isla Cristina. Most part of the activities will be done walking, by kayak, sailing or by bicycle.
Groups are accompanied throughout our activities by a Faro del Sur guide. The guides’ duties are to ensure that the activities undertaken comply with the published program and to coordinate, inform and brief the group with regards all the activities. All guides are bi-lingual, have years of experience in dealing with groups and each has its own specialization that they bring to the tour.
Although the guide coordinates activities and imparts relevant information, with regards cohesion and group dynamics it is important that participants also involve themselves in the details of the trip by lending a hand where appropriate

In the mountains, the climate is more Mediterranean with cool wet winters. Spring may also be cool especially at night and summer days can be very hot but the temperatures fall off again quickly in the evening. Autumn offers ideal temperatures with only a small chance of rain. This trip can be undertaken at any time of year.
