To have complete information, you would have to come visit us in Mallorca, because no guide can offer it to you. But since they say that the picture is worth a thousand words, I hope to be able to bring the experience to the maximum through not only texts, but also videos both to plan the trip before, and to remember it after traveling.

Next, we’ll go to Ajuy, a remote village with a black-sand beach. Check out the caves hollowed out of the cliffs by the waves.

Walking Ajuy

All the things that make the western highlands of Fuerteventura so special come together in this hike. Starting out at Vega de Rio Palmas, your guide will lead you through one of the island’s greener corners to the fishing village of Ajuy. The area’s remoteness lends the excursion a Wild West feel.

You’ll head by minibus to the hamlet of Vega de Rio Palmas. From here, you’ll set out by foot, crisscrossing valleys towards the hermitage of La Peña. The ample vegetation is why locals know the area as the ‘oasis of Fuerteventura’. Continue a trail along a gorge towards the coast and wave-washed Ajuy, the only village for miles around.

Ajuy is famed for its sea caves, which you’ll be able to explore along with its black volcanic beaches. Rounding off the walk is a picnic lunch. Hiking time is about five hours. A great opportunity to discover the fauna and flora of Fuerteventura with an expert guide.

Lanzarote Volcano Tour

They’re both a bit far away but Lanzarote is just 30 minutes by boat from Fuerteventura, which is a short time to travel for an otherworldly experience. You’ll visit Timanfaya National Park, El Golfo and a winery – all in one day.

Imagine all of this, in the great outdoors and the reality’s even better, as you’ll hardly have to do any pedalling!

Combo ticket to Aqualandia+Mundomar+Terra Mitica

Three is the magic number on this value-for-money combination. You’ll get all-day tickets to a trio of Costa Blanca parks – Aqualandia waterpark, the animal kingdom of Mundomar and Terra Mítica, Benidorm’s biggest theme park. Three fantastic, fun-filled days for the whole family.

Aqualandia pushes your adrenaline to the limit. Try the Verti-go, Europe’s highest standing slide and the world’s highest capsule slide. And there’s so much more. Mundomar is a bit more relaxing though no less exciting. There’s everything from dolphin and sea-lion shows to exotic birds and monkeys, and you’ll even have the chance to feed lemurs, penguins and other animals.

While Terra Mítica is bursting with hair-raising rides. In Egypt, there are thrills and spills galore on the water-themed rides, in Rome fly at full speed on the Phoenix but don’t go to Greece if you suffer from vertigo. There are mini versions for the kids, too, so it’s great for the whole family.

Tabarca Island Boat Trip

Tiny Tabarca Island is one of the Costa Blanca’s best-kept secrets and a daytrip here is an unmissable experience. It’s just a 20-minute boat ride from the mainland but once you get there, you’ll feel like you’ve travelled back in time – there are no cars for a start. But this trip is more about what Tabarca does have.

There’s the walled town covering the western half of the island. It’s home to about 60 residents – a century ago, there were more than 1,000 – and has just a handful of streets. Then there’s the recently restored baroque church over by the sea – there can’t be many prettier churches in Spain. And then there are the gorgeous little coves and beaches with crystalline waters lapping against them.

And then there’s the rest of the island – an expanse of bushes and cactus punctured only by an old prison and lighthouse, with tracks leading to cemetery in the eastern tip. To walk from tip to tip takes about half an hour – so it’s very doable as well as enjoyable.

The animals, vegetation and landscape provide opportunities for discovering the complexity of natural ecosystems.

Visitors may begin their voyage through the African realm of Bioparc Valencia by traveling deep into the Savannah, among herds of antelope, giraffe and rhinoceros; while lions overlook the great plain from their rocky heights. You will be able to see hyenas and warthogs as well as the vast wonders of underground life such as aardvark burrows, naked mole-rat nests and termite mounds. Visitors will then venture into the dense equatorial forest in search of gorillas, surrounded by red forest buffalos and leopards.

Mestalla Stadium guided visit

This is your last chance to experience Mestalla, the home of Valencia Fútbol Club and the oldest stadium in Spain. The stadium opened on 20 May 1923 where a friendly match took place between Valencia and Levante. It could initially hold 17,000 fans, but was quickly expanded to a capacity of 25,000.

In the 1970s, Valencia considered moving to a new stadium on the edge of the city, but instead decided to redevelop Mestalla, which was made necessary by the upcoming 1982 World Cup. Works included the reconstruction of the bottom tier, which until then still consisted of a brick structure and was replaced by a concrete one. The stadium remained the same for the next fifteen years. It underwent its last redevelopment between 1997 and 2001, when both ends and one side got expanded with an extra tier, and new access towers were built in the corners.

This guided tour guides will share passionate insights into Valencia’s illustrious past with access to areas normally reserved for players and officials. See the press room and the players’ dressing room, and walk the tunnel to the roar of a capacity crowd.

A visit for everyone and anyone, from all corners of the world!

Live flamenco show with tapas dinner

Taste of Almeria

You’ll feel like you’re a million miles away from the beaches, as you head inland and discover the secrets of Almeria. Drive past rolling hills covered with vineyards to Cortijo del Cura and through the Sierra de Gádor to a typical village for a tapa tasting. This is one of our TUI Collection excursions, which give you a local flavour of the destination while showcasing its unique, authentic and responsible values.

At Cortijo del Cura – the province’s first organic winery– the owner will proudly tell you about the wines, which are made using completely organic products and processes. Have a wander around the peaceful orchards and take a peek in the museum before tasting some of the wines and other local products.

This scenic tour then continues through the Sierra de Gádor – a stunning backdrop for photos. You’ll also learn all about little Spanish dishes known as tapas and enjoy a taste first-hand when you call in at a local village.

Taste of Almeria

Sierra Nevada

A chance to see the ‘other Andalusia’ in the highlands of the Sierra Nevada. You’ll drive past rocky outcrops, olive groves, almond and cork trees and cultivated farmland with stops in Puerto La Ragua and Guadix. This is one of our TUI Collection excursions, which give you a local flavour of the destination while showcasing its unique, authentic and responsible values.

At Puerto La Ragua, there’ll be a stop and a short walk through the pine trees, in a peaceful nature reserve. Then in the foothills, head past shark fin-shaped peaks to Guadix – it’s the picture of a fantastical town that’s jumped out of the pages of The Hobbit. You’ll notice chimneys sprouting from the hills and mysterious whitewashed doorways leading into the mountainsides – and get to see inside one of these unusual cave dwellers’ homes.

You’ll also get a feel for the traditional lives of the locals when you stop at an earthenware shop – see hand-painted ceramics and watch a pottery-making demonstration.

Sierra Nevada

Mojacar with boat

This tour combines two of the Almeria’s top attractions – the Cabo de Gata Nature Reserve and the historic hilltop village of Mojacar. You’ll cruise off the coast of the Cabo de Gata and then head by coach to Mojacar, one of the prettiest pueblos in eastern Andalusia.

Sailing from the port of Carboneras, the boat trip offers great views of Cabo de Gata – the largest protected coastal area in Spain. Pass hidden coves, imposing cliffs and pretty beaches while nursing a complimentary drink on board. You’ll also see the enticingly beautiful Playa de los Muertos – though it means ‘Beach of the Dead’, it’s more a case of a beach to die for.

Then it’s time for Mojacar itself. A guided tour will give you the lowdown on its long history – it’s believed to have been settled some 4,000 years ago – as you wander through winding alleys of whitewashed homes. See the Moorish fountain, city gate, St Mary’s church and more during a pleasant stroll through the village. And on the return journey, you’ll pass through the impressive Tabernas desert.

Mojacar with boat

Mojacar

If it’s a typical Spanish ‘pueblo’ that you’re after, then Mojacar’s your town. You’ll cross some pretty Wild West-looking scenery on your way, heading across the Tabernas desert. And you won’t be disappointed when you get there – the town is made of white, sugar-cubed houses that tumble down the rocky hillside. There’s also a visit to a coastal fishing village.

Mojacar’s a tangle of cobbled streets which are lined with quaint shops and cute cafés and there are plenty of Moorish leftovers to admire including a spring water fountain and flower-filled terraces.

Then take a trip to a typical coastal village. Head over to the beach for a dip or you can wander along the beautiful promenade.

Mojacar

Oasys MiniHollywood

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly have all blown through with the tumbleweed in Oasys MiniHollywood. Anthony Quinn, Sean Connery and Brigitte Bardot all ‘got the T-shirt’. Even Clint Eastwood scuffed the dusty streets in spaghetti western, A Fistful of Dollars.

And now his cigar-chomping hero is replaced by rootin’-tootin’ cowboy stunt shows that’ll have you gunning for more. Once a Hollywood movie paradise and based around an old Wild West town film set, this theme park puts on exciting shoot-outs, can-can shows and stunt riding, recreating legendary scenes in cinema history all with a beautiful desert backdrop.

Once the show’s over, there’s a miniature zoo with more than 800 animals from 200 different species, located in among lush vegetation of over 400 trees. It’s interesting stuff, as the centre supports an educational, research and conservation programme. Plus if you wish, you can take a dip in one of the pools, refuel in the restaurant or poke around one of the souvenir shops.

Oasys MiniHollywood

Nerja and Frigiliana Tour

Considered one of the most picturesque parts of the Costa del Sol, Nerja and nearby Frigiliana evoke the Andalusia of yesteryear. You’ll venture along the rocky coast towards the whitewashed village of Frigiliana before reaching Nerja and its famous Balcony of Europe. Topping off the tour is a visit to a botanical garden.

Frigiliana is a mainstay on lists of Spain’s most beautiful villages, and the drive from Almeria is also a sight to behold. You’ll head inland to the foothills of the Almijara Mountains to explore this typical whitewashed village. Amble along the hilly streets of the old town and browse the handicraft shops.

Then, it’s down to Nerja on the coast. Unusually for a seaside resort, it has retained a typical Andalusian appearance and atmosphere. You’ll have free time to poke around shops and cafés, and stop at Balcony of Europe to view the cove-strewn coastline. Finally, we’ll swing by a beautiful botanical garden before the journey back to your hotel.

Nerja and Frigiliana Tour

Tabernas desert from Leone to Spielberg the route of the stars

The Tabernas desert is considered one of the only true desert in Europe. 12.000 hectares protected enclosing a sedimentary eroded landscape, with average annual sunshine about more than 3,000 hours and below 250 mm rainfall per year. When Mediterranean’s sea covered the area of Tabernas and after millions of years to more than 500 meters depth, in times when the coastline was located at the foot of the Sierra de Los Filabres, several tectonic movements caused the gradual lifting of the sedimentary basin, settling the current landscape by erosion and over time.

During the route, you stop at all the micro landscapes which conform the desert as if it were a movie making reference to its geology, its vital features as well as its importance in the history of cinema past and present. Iconic films have been shot at this area as “Lawrence of Arabia”, “For a few dollars more,” “Indiana Jones”, “Patton” or “Millenium”.

Along the 4×4 route, the guide will stop to explain to you the most relevant geologic’s freaks, the history and the environmental aspects of this unique place.
