The programme
  • We get on our coach and cross the amazing region of Valencia, famous all over the world for orange cultivation. Our destination is a finca, a traditional estate surrounded by countryside. The locals are waiting to help us discover the local territory by illustrating the estate’s architecture and history as well as how the ancient mill works. As we continue our tour of the rice paddies and orange groves while listening to our exceptional guides, We catch sight of the Castle of Corbera in the distance, an ancient Arab fortress dating back to the 11th century.
  • Depending on the season, we can see the oranges either being harvested or packaged before enjoying a short visit to the Rice and Orange Museum to learn more about the working tools once used for cultivation. After our visit, the time has come to taste a few local products.
  • We return to our coach, and take advantage of a panoramic view of Valencia, before returning to the ship.

Good to know
  • We recommend that you book early because only a limited number of places are available.
