Discover one of the most fascinating landscapes in Spain and visit the Albufera of Valencia, a range of forests, rice fields and lakes where you can enjoy a unique day out to the Mediterranean coast. 

Albufera Day Trip

We'll pick you up at the Valencia Hotel and head to the Albufera lake, just ten kilometres away from Valencia. Did you know it's Spain's biggest lake? We'll enjoy a spectacular panoramic view of it from the Gola de Puchol pier while our guide tells us all about its unique Mediterranean ecosystem. 

Our next stop will be El Palmar. This island of the Albufera (meaning lagoon in Valencian) encapsulates its fishing roots that have characterised this area of Valencia throughout history. There are still some 18th-century houses! We'll walk around the main streets, pass by monuments and enjoy a boat ride to admire the area's delights from a different perspective.

Before leaving El Palmar, we'll visit El Saler to admire some virgin dunes and marvel over the indigenous plants, as well its beach and the Mediterranean sea. Lastly, we'll go back to Valencia's hotels, or you can decide to stay in the area and enjoy a delicious paella (not included). 

Sunset over the Albufera

If you want to enjoy a magnificent sunset over the waters of the Albufera, you'll need to book the trip in the afternoon. Depending on the sun, the timetable may vary slightly, meaning your guide may contact you to change the initial meeting time to earlier or later.
