  • Valencia: Jeep Safari Mountain Adventure

    1. Valencia: Jeep Safari Mountain Adventure

    You will be picked up from your accommodation before you head to the amazing wilderness that surrounds Valencia. The Calderona Mountains are located about 30 minutes from Downtown Valencia. You can either drive the Jeep yourself or sit back and let the guide do the work. All of the off-road trails are easy to drive on and completely safe. Discover the secrets and legends of the national park with the comfort and power provided by Jeeps. Experience the thrill of the off-road trails all while accompanied by your friendly and multilingual guide. A short walk will bring you to the mysterious ruins of the Serra Castle, an intriguing and beautiful site. Tapas and drinks are also included, which will really make you feel a part of the local atmosphere.

    Super fan activity to do during the day! Our tour guide was awesome at explaining what we were driving past and being enthusiastic. The view when you get to the peak is amazing!! There is a mini picnic at the top, the pictures you get are breath taking. One recommendation is to bring sunscreen as it can be hot but they give you water which is nice.

  • Valencia: Albufera Jeep and Boat Tour

    2. Valencia: Albufera Jeep and Boat Tour

    Delve into the heart of one of Spain’s most beautiful national parks. After pickup from your hotel, hop in to an open-topped Jeep and drive straight towards the lagoon and the lands surrounding it. With options to drive the Jeep yourself, or to sit back and relax while being driven by a guide, cater your experience to your tastes. Enjoy amazing views of the low-lying plateaus and cliffs overlooking the placid lagoon. Marvel at wind-swept sand dunes. Keep your eyes peeled for the myriad majestic bird species that call the area home, like massive heron, and peculiar varieties of duck. After covering significant ground driving, you’ll hop on a traditional fishing boat for a 45-minute boat ride. Afterwards, you’ll head to the pristine El Saler beach for a dip, accompanied by local tapas and soft drinks. Appetite sated, you’ll head back to your accommodation.

    The trip to Albufera lake was excellent. Everything was very well organized and it ran like clockwork. The two guides were very friendly and polite and they took very good care of us. In our jeep we had Nicole as our driver. She was very considerate about my personal needs, as I have problems with my knees. Albufera is certainly a place worth visiting. The natural beauty of the area, and how well it is taken care of as a national park are amazing. We learnt a lot about the growing of rice in the area. We recommend it whole heartedly
