Description

Albufera is a wonderful escape from the bustling city of Valencia and a great place to soak up some beautiful landscapes and be one with nature. The natural park of the Albufera is home to an enormous freshwater lagoon which is surrounded by rice fields. It is situated in the south of Valencia and is easily reachable by bus, scooter or bike from the center. The trip itself offers some lovely views of the beaches, the rice fields and the lagoon.
 Furthermore, there is an awesome bike route, and I can take you there on a bike or scooter tour. You will be rewarded with some incredible nature, dunes, wetlands, birds, fauna and the beaches of El Saler. The park’s lagoon makes a nice spot to watch birds and to take a ride in a typical Albufera boat. You can make a visit to a traditional house “barracas” in the picturesque town of El Palmar. This is also a great place to find good paella restaurants or you can make your own paella during a paella workshop. If you like nature, fresh open air and a peaceful atmosphere, this is definitely a tour for you!

Reviews

We enjoyed our day in Valencia, our highlight was the paella lunch at the countryside. We got to overlook the ricefields while having lunch and having great conversations with our guide.

Ben H.full day tour with Albufera

We booked a private day tour to the Albufera as we wanted to have a day outside Valencia with our family. We enjoyed the walk in the natural park, it was very quiet and the kids got to run around. We loved the private boat ride watching the birds & sipping bubbles. Our guide Suzie thought of everything, she even got us kids cava. She is a delight to spend the day with and tells you all about the authentic way to eat paella. The paella was amazing!
