Due to lack of participants (people cancelled 5 spots just 2 days before) this event has been cancelled.

I would have liked spending time with you and enjoy this journey and help you discover the traditions and the local dishes from my homeland.

DESCRIPTION OF THE ACTIVITY

We are going to discover the Albufera Natural Park and taste the best of its gastronomy in one of the restaurants in the Albufera area, Casa Baina, where they make their meal of the day "arroz meloso con gambas y setas", ingredients from Mediterranean cuisine.

The "albuferecs" are the typical and traditional boats of Lake Albufera. In the past, the travels through La Albufera were made in "albuferencs" in shallow waters, such as "marjales", lagoons and canals. The "albuferencs" were used for hunting and fishing, because they allowed to navigate without making noise and to approach places of complicated access.

The popular "albuferencs" of the lake, with little draught, not to touch bottom, since the lake has a maximum of two meters deep, and in many places less, but with well designed ballast in the center, to ensure stability.

PRICE

The boat tour costs 50€ and we can divide this up to 10 persons (5€ per person). If we are less than 10 we need to share the 50€ among the number of participant.

The meal of the day costs only 10€, which is sweet rice with shrimp and mushrooms, I reserved 10 portions. If you wish you can order some fish or meat from the menu (limited variety) . Drinks and desserts not included in the price.
