Thanks again everyone for all the amazing information on my last request for information for our upcoming wildlife trip to Europe. The planning is coming along well and we are making definite progress. As usual, I am thinking I am being a bit too ambitious (sometimes that actually works out! But….), so I would like to ask your valuable opinions on one more thing: We are definitely planning on going to Sierra de Andujar for the Iberian Lynx, so that is set on the itinerary, but I keep seeing cool reports for northern Spain too – Somiedo and Sierra de la Culebra (bears and wolves…). As of now I can get about 3-4 days in the Andujar/Sierra Nevada NP region and about 2-3 days in the northern section for Somiedo/Culebra. Is this too much to think about? Should I cut Somiedo/Culebra in favor of more time down south?
If we were to keep Somiedo/Culebra, what are the odds we’d make a good spotting of the bear and wolf subspecies?
Again, thanks for all of your information thus far. This is our first wildlife expedition to Europe (outside of Scandinavia), and we’re pretty stoked to see some cool critters!
