Enjoy a unique day of canyons, valleys, hanging bridges, amazing views, 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 tour starts with the canyon trail which has incredible vertical cliffs created by the river Turia. The canyon is several kilometres long which provides an inspiring combination of mountains views, gorges, valleys, vertical cliffs, hanging bridges and green vegetation along the river. The canyon leads to a picturesque reservoir, surrounded by mountains, which is perfect to relax, listen to the waves by the shore and of course take some great photos. 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. An option is to stop for lunch (Saturday & Sunday only) at a local restaurant. A selection of typical tapas dishes from the area at affordable and non-tourist prices (vegetarian dishes available).
After lunch, you will have some free time to explore the village. Pass through the charming old streets and visit the ruined remains of the Moorish castle which lies on the mountain top above the village. Learn about the history of the castle and how it was built and destroyed by different empires over the centuries. And why not finish with a refreshing drink in one of the bars in the main square as you enjoy the local village atmosphere.
