About the trip


By private bus, we will be going to Xativa. Xativa, a city famous for its castle 🏰, has been declared a national monument for its beauty and history. You will find the Xativa Castle on top of Vernissa hill where you will have spectacular views of the city and mountains. When we get to the top of this hill, you will be able to take some great photos and explore the castle.

Visiting Xativa Castle is a great opportunity to visit a real-life castle in the clouds.

After this organised visit to the castle, we will have a picnic and you get to have some free time. Please, bring your own snacks from home 🍓🍇🍉

After this picnic, we´ll head to Calpe and El Peñón de Ifach by bus. Calpe is a breathtaking town close to Valencia, known for its beaches, ancient history, and Peñón de Ifach. Peñón de Ifach is a 332-meter-high rock ⛰and is a designated national park. 

Once we arrive in Calpe, we will be able to enjoy some lunch to get enough energy for the next activity. Please bring your own food 🥐🥗

After the food, you will get to decide what you want to do. You can either join us to go hiking 🥾 for an hour on Calpe’s Peñón de Ifach and enjoy major views, or you can decide to enjoy free time in Calpe an hour early. 

After this, we will have free time in Calpe to visit amazing places before we take the bus back to Valencia 🚍 

We´ll have optional activities for you, such as visiting the town, swimming, or snorkelling.

You can rent some snorkelling equipment from us 🤿for 5€ and enjoy swimming at this beautiful beach 🏝 with clear blue water or take a stroll through the city.

❗Remember, if you decide to join the hike, make sure you are wearing comfortable hiking shoes/clothes. Also, the walk to the castle requires quite a bit of walking.
