We will pick you up with our van at your hotel in Santander. From there we will drive towards the lighthouse of Cabo Mayor which is the perfect place to make an introduction to the protected Natural area of the Bay of Santander. After this initial interpretation of the coastline, we will head towards Astillero, where we will learn about its black and white marshes. In fact, we will walk a small path (1, 5km) here to interpret the marshes, observe the aquatic and passerines birds and the marshy vegetation of the area. Our next stop will be in Marina de Cudeyo where we visit the Osprey Centre. As from here, you will have the option of doing a 3 km walk tour along the Marsh of El Conde or just doing this tour by car. The Marshes of El Conde is a protected area of the "Red Natura 2000"  and of great importance due to its high ecological value. You will be surprised by its rich and abundant community of birds, in particular of the Osprey. Our last stop will be in Pedreña to visit the seafood farm and learn about the shellfish activity. As it could not be otherwise, we will finish the excursion enjoying a tasting of clams with white wine.
