Rural and nature tourism - Region of Valencia
If you’re looking for a holiday destination where you can get out and about in the great outdoors, the Region of Valencia won’t disappoint. With its expansive areas of natural beauty spanning from the peaks of the mountains to the plains of the coast, the provinces of Castellón, Valencia and Alicante are a nature lover’s paradise. Come and visit to explore countless protected natural areas inhabited by a unique plant and wildlife you won’t see anywhere else in the Mediterranean.
There is something for everyone here. Whether you fancy scaling the mountains in the north, strolling through the marshlands or exploring quaint little villages, you will get your nature fix while making memories that will last a lifetime.
Lesser known than the coast, the inland of the Region of Valencia is a largely unexplored treasure. Nature runs wild here forming vistas that will take your breath away. Nowhere is this more true than at la Canal de Navarrés where the hiking trails will lead you to the most spectacular landscapes. La Tinença de Benifassà is another must-visit, a natural park that is defined by the deep gorges that cut through the terrain.
The best way to be enveloped in these unique naturescapes is to go walking. The large majority of the natural areas in the Region are snaked with official hiking trails of different levels of difficulty. If you love a challenge, you can walk from Vistabella del Maestrat to Vila-real, a route that will take you from the heights of Penyagolosa to close to the shores of the sea. If you’d prefer something less strenuous, you can take a cycle ride along the Costa Blanca, exploring the prettiest beaches and coves as you breathe in panoramic views over the Mediterranean.
If you are looking for natural parks, the Region of Valencia certainly won’t leave you wanting. A total of 22 natural parks will treat your eyes to the most diverse landscapes, from islands, coastal mountains and natural pools to marshlands, gorges and ravines. Sot de Chera natural park, Columbretes islands and Charcos de Quesa to name but a few, are well worth a visit. Wherever you are in the Region of Valencia, you will discover scenery that showcases mother nature’s finest work.
And then there are the little villages. Nestled into the landscape, these places are straight out of a fairytale, offering a wonderful day out spent wandering the streets and soaking up the culture. There are historic villages, such as Forcall and Segorbe, where age-old traditions are still very much alive, as well as destinations such as Calp, a seaside town where you can savour delicious cuisine.
There are plenty of different ways to experience the natural scenery of the Region of Valencia. You could, for example, take a guided tour led by experts, do a workshop in the great outdoors or enjoy family-friendly activities. This is the opportunity you’ve been looking for to be at one with nature, respect the environment, do some stargazing and birdwatching in the most stunning settings.
As you can see, the Region of Valencia has a myriad of areas of natural beauty to offer. Come along to spend some quality time with your loved ones in the midst of the wildest and prettiest landscapes.
