Touristic offerings and alternatives for your partner and family
(For the proposal of social activities check their own entry.)
The province landscapes are extraordinaire. You can find three or more different climates/ecosystems in an hour travel car.
Usually our visitants fall in love with the Cabo de Gata-Níjar Natural Park, a sea and land protected space said to be one of the best places in Spain to dive.
When in Almería you can take the opportunity to spend a few days resting here. But be sure to do your reservations soon enough since is tourist high season.
Since probably it will be the first time you'll visit Almería and theses parts of Spain we feel you could take the opportunity to travel with your family. So they can have a parallel set of activities of active tourism both in the city or in any of the beautiful landscapes, specially the Cabo de Gata-Níjar Natural Park,. Indeed you could want to spent holidays time after GUADEC with your significant ones. For this we are able to prepare a set of touristic offers in collaboration with the city council of Níjar (the municipality holding the bigger part of the park) and local companies. As examples, theses offers can be:
- tracking routes, both in park and other places in the province
- bus guided visits to beautiful places, both in park and other places in the province
- horse riding
- snorkeling in the natural park waters
- scuba diving baptisms in the natural park waters
- kayak routes in the natural park waters
The city of Almería has its own offers:
The Alcazaba moorish castle, about 1000 years old
