Private Albufera Boat Trips

Discover the beautiful Albufera lake.

From €7.50

Discover the beauty of Albufera lake on one of our private boat charters for 2 to 32 people, suitable for couples looking for a romantic trip or groups looking to enjoy Valencia's hidden nature and history.

See traditional thatched cottages, rice paddies and add an optional meal with delicious local cuisine.

The boats depart from the village of El Palmar,  an oasis of peace and tranquillity where time stands still, just a 20-30 minute drive from Valencia city centre.

As you explore by boat and you'll learn how fishermen and rice growers have traditionally worked Albufera lake's beautiful waters.

With its wealth of migratory birds and rich variety of flora and fauna, you will certainly have plenty of photo opportunities as you cover a 5-mile (8.5 km) expanse of this stunning waterway.

You also have the option to visit a barraca; a traditional high-peaked thatched fisher or farmer’s cottage, with a design that dates back hundreds of years.

Few of these dwellings remain and it is fascinating to learn about these curious constructions and their traditional inhabitants, and hold discover traditional tools and methods involved in fishing and rice cultivation on and around the lake.

To top off your visit, add lunch or dinner after your boat trip  in one of the best local restaurants selected especially for you. You'll enjoy starters to share, an unbelievably authentic paella, dessert, water and wine. A wonderful dining experience within a stone's through of the lake's shore.

Our packages can include transport from anywhere in Valenca city centre or the marina/beach areas. Or, if you have your own car, you can drive there yourself.
