How to get to Doñana
where are we
To reach Doñana, in the southwestern corner of Spain, you have several options:
By plane, there are flights to Seville, Malaga and Jerez, in Spain, and Faro in Portugal, from all major European cities. The nearest airport to Doñana is Seville.
By bus, there is a bus line that connects the city of Seville with Matalascañas, via El Rocío, where our offices are. Buses depart several times daily from Plaza de Armas Bus Station (+34 954 908 040). You can check timetables here and also buy tickets here. Although if you plan to spend the day in Doñana and a visit the Park with us, this option will not be good for you, unless you spend the night here, because the first bus arrives in El Rocío too late to take a morning tour and the last bus departs for Seville from El Rocío too early to take the afternoon tour option.
A taxi from Seville to El Rocío will cost € 100 each way.
By car, the most comfortable way to reach Doñana is undoubtedly by car and besides, you will have a means of transportation to explore the area. If you come from Malaga or Jerez, you will have to come via Seville and from there you will have to take the motorway A-49 west. If coming from Faro, you’ll have to come via Huelva and take the motorway A-49 east.
There are also local buses connecting Matalascañas / 15km / El Rocío / 15km / Almonte, every 2 hours.
There is a small car rental company in the area: Raso’s Rent a Car.
Our offices are located off the asphalt road that goes through the village of El Rocio, a small town with unpaved streets next to the marshes of Doñana National Park, famous for its pilgrimage and its sanctuary. Follow the following indications to find us:
If you come from Seville: Take the A-49 towards Huelva up to the exit 48 and follow signs to Almonte – Doñana. Past Almonte continue on the A-483 some 14 km further and follow signs to El Rocío. Upon arrival at El Rocío, after leaving the main road, turn right at the third roundabout following signs to the Ermita and Rocío Sur. Continue straight passing the gas station you will see on your right and keep going for about 500 meters to the large white building called Puente del Rey on your left, we are just beyond it, off the main road on your left, in a traditional hut with a scene of the marsh painted on the front wall.
If you come from Huelva: Two options. The first one is to take the A-49 north to Seville up to the exit 50 and follow signs to Almonte – Doñana and then keep going straight along the A-483 to El Rocío. The second is to take the coastal road A-494 east towards Matalascañas, and then continue towards the north by the A-483 about 15 km more to El Rocío. Upon arrival in El Rocío after leaving the main road, turn right at the third roundabout if you have entered from the north or second if you come from south, following the signs to the Ermita and Rocío Sur.
