Travel Diary: Valencia Hot Springs Tour

Our third day in Valencia was a polar opposite to the lazy one the day before, we decided to do a Hot Springs Tour that we'd found on TripAdvisor.

We were picked up from our hotel and taken to town in a minivan, where we switched to a coach and headed out to the outskirts of Valencia.
Our first stop was a waterfall called the Brides Veil.

It's an old tradition, that brides to be had to jump from one bank to the other, underneath the fountain before getting married. If they succeeded, their marriage would be happy!

Our next stop was lunch, where some of us sampled tapas at local restaurant, followed by some unusual wine tasting...

After Lunch, we drove to the Hot Springs

We swam a mile or so from the area shown above, to the Hot Spring area, where there was a palpable difference between the temperatures of the water surrounding us and of the springs and streams.
We also swam to a mini cliff, where a few of our group were able to go cliff jumping.

After visiting the springs, we took a short hike to our final stop, a Dam...

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour! Our guide Diego was excellent and our group contained people from Croatia, Australia, New York, Columbia and even Manchester giving us lots to talk about!

I can't recommend this tour enough, so if you're in the vicinity, GO FOR IT!
