  • Daytrip to Cabo de Gata–Nijar Natural Park

    1. Daytrip to Cabo de Gata–Nijar Natural Park

    Tucked into the south-eastern corner of Spain lies one of the few remaining unspoiled stretches of the Mediterranean coast: Cabo de Gata. Spend a day exploring this untouched region with a day-long bus trip to Cabo de Gata–Nijar Natural Park Accompanied by your guide, you will be transported to a captivating landscape of dizzying cliffs, ruined castles, volcanic rock formations, coral reefs, pristine beaches and hidden coves - all virtually unchanged since the days of the Phoenicians. Mermaid Reef, the fishing village of La Isleta del Moro, and the lighthouse of Cabo de Gata are but a few of the many highlights of this tour.

I really liked the interested attitude of pepetour, a very good travel company. We received all the information by mail, as well as at the reception at the hotel (they called from the company when we were not in touch by mobile) they were picked up at the agreed place at the exact time, and returned back. The tour itself is wonderful, I highly recommend it, great photos and lots of positive emotions.

Very good tour!

The Oasys brought back a lot of childhood memories to me. It was a very good trip. It is worth the go. We enjoyed it very much. It would be better if the buffet was included. The only thing I do not like is the meeting point which is far from city center!
