Birdwatching Spain | Wildlife tours in Spain

Spain with Pau Lucio

Would you like to arrange your own wildlife holiday in Spain? If Honeyguide's holidays are not at the right time or right place, we are happy to suggest you contact Pau Lucio, who also organises and co-leads three of Honeyguide's various holidays in Spain.

Honeyguide holidays in Spain will continue, of course, though not to every part of Spain every year.

Pau is very experienced in the Honeyguide style, and is open to approaches to arrange a wildlife holiday of your choice in Spain.

Pau Lucio is an accredited and registered tour guide - as you have to be in Spain. For more information about holidays with Pau, visit Birdwatching Spain.

Next steps to your 'Spain with Pau' holiday

Holidays can be arranged in two ways.

1. You can contact Pau directly, make a plan and organise your own flights or other travel to Spain (we may be able to advise on how).

2. Contact us. We can book flights, it then becomes a small Honeyguide group, and your holiday is covered by Honeyguide's ATOL.
