Discover the Natural Park of the Lagoon near Valencia with a local guide, boat ride and Paella lunch
Visit the heart of Valencia gastronomy and one of the most impressive Natural Parks in the region, Albufera (Lagoon). Today you will discover the waterland were the rice is grown and local fauna have created their own space. Albufera was declared in 1986 Natural Park in Valencia and since then (before too) are thousands visitors who decide to visit every year.
The day will start visiting the bird observatory where is possible (depends on the year time) to see flamingos, herons, storks or different kind of ducks. Some live there the whole year, but others just came to the lagoon to pair.
Then you will learn about the rice and the local culture and traditions. Embark on a boat to do a tour on the lagoon and pass by some rice fields. Visit a typical "Barraca" (local farmers building) and complete the Tour with a traditional valencian meal and paella (meal included).
On the way back to Valencia, you will see more rice fields.
