Adventures, Thermal Springs and Waterfalls
What you are about to discover is the result of 12 years in the making. I wanted this experience to be nothing short of EPIC. If you are ACTIVE, if you love NATURE, GREAT company, LAUGHTERS, WATER-WATER-WATER and BREATHTAKING locations for the most amazing PICTURES ever, this experience is for YOU. I will take you to what I consider the top 5 locations to visit in Valencia in ONE AMAZING EPIC DAY! During the trip we will visit waterfalls, swim in a natural thermal spring lagoon (25C year round), water caves, canyons, and a few surprises along the way. It is not too extreme or strenuous as we move to the different locations with the minivan. Let’s call it a glamventure day :) This is NOT a hiking day. This tour is suited for almost everyone. Fit or not, young or more experienced ;-) I will guide you to get close to the massive waterfall, swim at the thermal springs and really almost whatever you are up to. If you are not so active, all the locations are perfect for chilling, taking amazing pictures and just enjoy a perfect day in the nature with fellow travellers. Of course there are nice stops to have local food and drinks. **Again, It's not a hiking tour and we do not walk a lot as I take you directly to the different locations. This experience is perfect for couples, group of friends, families, hen/stag dos and solo travellers.
Thermal Springs Adventure
Catch a breath of mountain air and experience the idyllic thermal springs of Montanejos with us. In this full-day adventure, we will explore the natural beauty of the surrounding areas of Valencia that few visitors ever get to discover. After picking you up from a convenient location, we will travel north out of the city. Our first stop will be at the impressive Bridal Falls - a 55m high waterfall, where we can bask in the surrounding nature and maybe take a dip in the waterfall pools. Watch out for goats and ghosts at this magical spot! We will then discover the legendary Fuente de los Baños - natural thermal springs of crystal clear, medicinal waters. Here, we can swim, explore caves and relax in the most beautiful of locations. First used in the 13th Century, the springs are constantly rising at a pleasant 25°C, wonderful all year round! After swimming we will get to stop for lunch in the village of Montanejos to re-fuel, as well as visiting an impressive horizontal waterfall, canyons, lake, and dam! We believe in leaving places better than we found them, which is why we only use local providers, and have built long lasting friendships in the villages we visit. If you choose to join us, you will get to see this in action, interact with locals, and we plant a tree for every guest! This really is the perfect way to escape the city and be at one with nature for a day.
