We have a wide range of brilliant excursions and activities ideal for children of all ages

The Kukutana Team

Our fun and exciting excursions and activities designed specifically for younger travellers – from forest school to pony trekking, make-your-own pizza nights to flamenco classes – make Kukutana the perfect spot for a family getaway

Kukutana, our authentic farmhouse in Southern Spain, is the perfect spot to immerse yourself in local Andalusian culture, explore the stunning Doñana National Park, and relax and unwind in beautiful, rural surroundings.

And with plenty of activities to keep even the most energetic young explorers busy, a family trip is sure to leave memories to last a lifetime. Read on for just some of the fantastic excursions and activities we can offer for our more youthful visitors.

Forest School

Led by a specialist in youth education, our forest school activities are designed to encourage children to interact with nature, whilst developing their independence, confidence, self-esteem and social skills. Whether it is exploring the woodlands around Kukutana, hunting for insects, building dens, woodwork activities or much more, these engrossing and immersive sessions are sure to keep all young minds and bodies busy. Forest school activities are available on a full or half day basis.

Pottery and art classes

Picasso, Velázquez and Murillo – the number of famous artists hailing from Andalusia is impressive; perhaps there is something in the water. Led by our own ceramics and arts teacher, we can provide pottery classes and painting for children feeling equally inspired by the beautiful surroundings and landscapes around Kukutana. 

Flamenco class

Olé, olé! Let the little ones channel their inner bailador and learn a few steps of the famous local dance. Whilst adults may enjoy one of our captivating flamenco shows with a glass of rioja, the children may well like something a little more interactive. Dancing shoes at the ready!

Hot air ballooning

Whilst not strictly only a children’s activity, our hot air balloon outings are always a huge highlight for the kids (the adults seem to enjoy it too!). Float gently above the rolling Spanish countryside to enjoy spectacular 360° views in the early morning sun, as we drift slowly along the “green corridor” between Seville and Huelva near the Portuguese border. One not to be missed!


Going to bed in a canvas tent under the stars, in the warm evening air of the Andalusian countryside, is sure to capture the imagination of the younger members of the group. Inspire their inner explorer and invoke the adventure of a night – or evening – in the great outdoors, all in the comfortable setting of the Kukutana gardens.

Carriage rides and pony trekking

Our equestrian offering here at Kukutana is one of our highlights, so there is no reason to limit it to adults and experienced riders! Carriage rides are a great way for children to take part in our riding excursions which allow guests to explore the sandy trails of the beautiful Doñana National Park. We can also offer led walks around the Kukutana grounds on trusty, dependable Fogonero to let your little ones enjoy some time in the saddle, whilst guests of all ages are welcome to visit and get to know the horses and take part in grooming and feeding.

Pizza night and cooking classes

Let the little ones don their aprons and chef hats as they set about making their own pizza dinner in the Kukutana kitchen. Always a popular activity, this is ideal if children are eating separately from the adults in the group or have a particular craving for some more familiar dishes than our usual, Andalusian-inspired, fare. We can also arrange cookery classes to learn how to make some simple, yummy local dishes.

Cycling trips

Our cycling excursions are perfect for any children old enough to ride a bike! With e-bikes available for older kids and adults, and traditional pedal bikes for younger members of the group, our cycling outings are an exhilarating way to explore the trails and routes that criss-cross the forests of Southern Andalusia. The e-bikes are equipped with cables designed to attach to the smaller pedal bikes, so if any small legs start tiring, hook them up and keep moving!

Treasure hunts and mini-Olympics

In the idyllic setting of the Kukutana gardens, we can organise treasure hunts, outdoor games and races to let the children let off some steam and enjoy time outdoors. Let them explore the lawns, the courtyard, the bullring and the vegetable patch to their heart’s content, whilst the grown-ups enjoy a manzanilla and nibbles by the pool!

Baby sitter service

An extra offering for the grown-ups! If you are keen to enjoy an evening in Seville – the alluring Andalusian city famous for its cultural and gastronomic scene with over 5,000 tapas bars to choose from – we would be happy to provide a baby sitter service so you can drink and dine in peace knowing your little loved ones are well looked after.

If you would like to organise a family trip to Kukutana, please feel free to reach out to the team. Some children’s activities are organised in advance – we will happily discuss your plans and help organise a wonderful family visit!
