Do you like the coast and breathtaking views up in the mountains? If the answer is yes, this tour is perfect for you! You will go to the Marina Baja region; a region with lots of character. This is a full day excursion and will take you to beautiful spots during the day.

Villajoyosa means ‘happy city’ because of all the brightly coloured houses. The houses have all different colours because the fishermen would recognize their hideaway from far away. It is a lovely town that attracts many artists and inspires a lot of people.
At the next stop you will visit the Aitana Safari Park. In a magnificent natural setting, it is possible to observe wild animals and sometimes even touch some animals as elephants, buffaloes, giraffes, tigers and lions … Take the chance and enjoy this unique opportunity.

Even children will enjoy this tour without any doubts! In the afternoon you will go to Guadalest. This little village is located about 600 meters high nestled in a wonderful mountain landscape and has only 200 habitants, but receives about 2 million visitors every year.

This cozy little village has a unique location, an absolute must-see. You can take a solar-powered boat for a trip on the idyllic lake (optional) or you could choose to explore the old centre of this lovely village.

Costa Blanca Tour

The north of the Costa Blanca is one of the most beautiful areas of Spain. This area is more rough and green than other places. We stop in Altea; a nice ‘artist’ village where famous Spanish artist comes for peace and inspiration.

Further to the north you will visit the picturesque village Polop where you will visit a museum of miniature. You also make a stop at the botanical (cactus) garden of Algar, beautifully situated in a small valley. The natural waterfall that flowsdown about 25 meters is a beautiful piece of nature.

An advise for lunch in the mountain village Tarbena: it is a restaurant that feels like a museum and is decorated in the spirit of communism. The (meat) paella is the specialty of the house.

The “Coll de Rates”, a mountain pass which is well known to cycling fanatics, you will get a beautiful panorama of the area. You must take a good photo here! The trip continues through green vineyeards and you will visit the characteristic village of Jalon. Of course you can do a wine tasting in a local bodega to try some different local wines.

Viva Espana Tour (half-day excursion, afternoon)

Have a taste of the real Spain!

First on the program is Finestrat, the friendly mountain village, strikingly situated against the imposing mountains. The location is extraordinary, the Moorish architecture exquisite and the views … this is love on first sight! As if all this were not idyllic enough, the mountain village is surrounded by fragrant orange and lemon groves, where the fruits are just waiting to be picked. It doesn’t get  any fresher than this and tasting is allowed!

After a cozy coffee stop, it is time for your next unforgettable experience; a ride on the slow train between the little fishermen village of Altea and the authentic Spanish village of Benissa: the stunning views of the coast line and the rocky, somewhat artful landscape speak for themselves.

At the port of Calpe, you get to see the local fishermen returning to the harbor and unloading their catch, after a long and hard day at sea. Interesting as well as entertaining is the wet fish auction. But it gets even better, because this fun-packed trip ends with a treat; a refreshing glass of local wine and a tasty fish appetizer!

Included:
– fruit picking (seasonal)
– coffee & pastry
– wine and fish appetizer
