Enjoy a unique day of canyons, hanging bridges, a mountain village and its Moorish castle
Canyon Trail & Chulilla Village Tour
This tour combines a spectacular hike through a mountain canyon and a visit to the beautiful mountain village of Chulilla which is only one hour’s drive from Valencia.
The circular hike is 17km and takes around 4.5hrs. Parts of the trail follow an impressive canyon with vertical cliffs created by the river Turia. The route has an inspiring combination of gorges, valleys, vertical cliffs, hanging bridges, forest, green vegetation, a reservoir and the blue lake.
It really is a unique route and considered special in the Valencian region. The hike finishes at the beautiful village of Chulilla which locals love but is definitely off the tourist map. You will have some free time to explore the charming old streets and visit the ruined remains of the Moorish castle. And why not finish with a refreshing drink in one of the bars in the main square as you enjoy the local village atmosphere.
If you want to escape the city into nature, trek through a breath taking canyon and experience a lovely mountain village in the Valencian region then this tour is for you.
A shorter hiking route of 8km (2.5hrs) can be chosen on the day which still includes all the main points of interest.
