Albufera touristic bus and boat ride
  • Albufera touristic bus and boat ride

    $16.46Price
    Escape from the hustle and bustle of the big city with a visit to Albufera Natural Park just a few kilometers south of the city. This wonderful wetland centers around a large lagoon and is served by a hop-on-hop-off bus service from Valencia. The contrast between the urban jungle and the unspoiled wilds so close together could not be greater. This tour also includes a cruise on the lagoon.

    The bus has six stops within Valencia proper, including the futuristic City of Arts and Sciences, before heading south past rice paddies on the way to the park. Arrive at Albufera and drive along the narrow strip of pines and dunes that separates the lagoon from the Mediterranean. Catch a glimpse of the hundreds of species of birds, including storks and northern shovellers. See the maquis scrubland and Mediterranean plants such as myrtle, rosemary, and thyme, which grow wild in vast quantities.

    The name Albufera has its origins in Arabic for ‘the small sea’, al-buhayra. The freshwater lagoon itself is Spain’s largest lake despite only being about one-third of its size two centuries ago. More than 30 islets are jutting off from the water adding a scenic touch to any photos you take during your cruise, which will be about half-an-hour long.

    The villages around the lagoon are renowned for their paellas (the dish has its origins here) and make an ideal stop for lunch (not included).
