Our Albufera de Valencia trip takes in many different “hot spots” of this huge site, often including some restricted and highly protected sites, and is adapted according to the season. By joining us, you can be sure to make the very most of what this site has to offer.  If required, the trip can also be adapted to include a traditional Paella lunch at the home of this emblemic dish, or a specially chartered boat trip on the lake.
