Nature, heritage and gastronomy reach their peak in the land of the light. The TransAndalus by Huelva discovers the richness of the most valued treasures offered by this impressive Andalusian province, from the Dehesas de la Sierra de Aracena to the Doñana marshes.

The TransAndalus by Huelva starts at Santa Olalla del Cala coming from Almadén de la Plata (Seville). Crossing beautiful cattle pastures towards the west, it crosses the old Mines of Teuler, to follow the road to the Aracena Reservoir. The landscape changes as we go up to Corteconcepción. Large chestnut, holm oak and cork oak trees and the luxuriant riverbank vegetation accompany its numerous streams.

In Aracena, we find several appealing proposals to discover its well-hidden secrets. From there, in the heart of the Nature Reserve, we continue our way along signposted trails leading to Los Marines, Fuenteheridos, Galaroza, Jabugo and Cortegana with its imposing castle. En route, we can sample the most famous Iberian products and discover the traditional cork goods.

In Aroche the landscape gradually turns into pastures and as we go deeper into the Picos de Aroche, it turns into extensive pine forests with splashes of holm oak, cork oak and eucalyptus trees surrounded by pastures and scrub.

We reach San Telmo, known for its old copper mines, and enter the unique region of Andévalo and its mining area, where we will visit the Cerro del Andévalo, Calañas and Sotiel Coronada, where we will cross the Odiel River.

By road we go up to Valverde del Camino, home to furniture, wood and, especially, shoe craftsmen, settled between the valleys of Tinto and Odiel and connecting the mountains and the mining area with the countryside and the coast. From there we will take the Green route of Los Molinos del Agua (and Buitrón) on a placid journey to San Juan del Puerto through Los Pinos, Dehesa Pan y Ajo (Beas) and Trigueros.

The way to Moguer goes through the historic Río Tinto and, along the bike lane on the old path of Loro, that starts at the chapel in Montemayor, we enter the great mass of pine trees of Doñana Nature Reserve that protect the environmental riches of the National park.

The unforgettable thirty kilometres of beach between Matalascañas and Sanlúcar de Barrameda (Cadiz), on the edge of the province, arouse a host of unique sensations, full of opposing sensory nuances that invade our spirit: beauty, light, colour, solitude and self-improvement; each turn of the pedal engraves another memory of the TransAndalus by Huelva in our mind.

Type of route: Linear. Total length: 296.15 km and 294.46 km on the alternative route Type of surface: compact ground, beach sand, trails, paths and asphalt. Stages: 10 sections. Accessibility: Suitable for walking and mountain bikes. Recommendations: * Before starting the last section by solitary unspoilt beaches in the area of Doñana, it is advisable to ask for information on the tides and the timetable of the barge crossing the Guadalquivir River at Punta del Malandar. * In Moguer, we suggest you consider doing the last section on the beach. If you prefer, there is an alternative route on the northern edge of Doñana and enter the province of Seville via Villamanrique de la Condesa.
