What Is It?

Setting fire to things and dancing in the street.

And that's it! What more could you want, really?

Spain is famous for its street festivals and this is the only one this time of year. Las Fallas is a festival to celebrate the coming of spring. It is a festival to wish a jubilant bon voyage to winter - and how better to farewell those cold days and even colder nights than by building giant effigies and burning them to the ground, setting off fireworks (like everyone doing them everywhere) and, of course, drinking sangria and dancing in the streets.  

Jump on a bus and come with us!

We've got a trip running down to Valencia from Barcelona on Friday morning and returning on Sunday arvo. Includes private coach transport there and back, 2 nights camping accommodation at our beautiful, beach-side campsite just outside Valencia, transfers to the burning of the effigies on Saturday night with Stoke guides and then a bus ride back to Barcelona, so you can make work/class on Monday. Plus 2 breakfasts and one dinner.
Awesome!

If you're coming from elsewhere, you can meet us at the campsite and stay with us for party party.

Keen to hang around Barca before or after? 

We can organise your weekend stay with 2 nights in a central and fun Barcelona backpacker hostel, a choice of:  bike tour, cooking class or boat cruise, a walking tour with the funniest guides in town and free club entry into some top Barcelona clubs.

How To Get Here?

The best way to get here.

Is with us!  And they are the most cotton lovin’ fun buses running in Europe, guaranteed! The buses meet outside the Hard Rock Cafe in Plaza Catalunya.

 

Aeroplanes are fast.

They’re the only way to travel through the sky. Helicopters are alright but too noisy, and blimps or hot air balloons simply take forever…

Fly to Valencia and then make your way to our camp. A train will take you into the city centre (Estación del Norte) from the airport and another train from there to Puçol. From Puçol we pick you up, yeah buddy. Check out the little hint below for details of your Valencia – Pucol* commute.

 

Training Wheels.

It was once considered glamorous to travel by train. These days it’s merely considered to be faster, yet more expensive, than buses and slower, but often cheaper, than planes.

Same deal. Estación del Norte is the main station. Just get a ride to there, jump on a local train to Puçol* and we do the rest.

 

Bussel Sprouts.

Buses take you places.

Same thing again. Just make sure you get a ride to Valencia and not somewhere else, like Palencia, which is on the other side of Spain, but presumably full of pals.

 

*A little hint on getting to the Campsite from Valencia

The address of the campsite is: Camping Pucol, Camí Riu Turia, 3, 46530 Puzol Playa, Valencia

You buy your ticket to Puzol (Puçol, pronounced ‘Puthol’) from the Main Hall of Estación del Norte. They cost 2 bucks, which is bubblegum money. There are two ticket counters, one air-conditioned glass box that sells long distance trips and one right smack bang in the middle of the main hall that sells short journeys. Puçol is just up the road from Valencia, so make sure you sweat it out in the main hall, OK? The ticket waitress will tell you the platform.

Once you reach Pucol, give us a call on 0034 625 304 703.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

FAQ

Las Fallas FAQ

 

 

Enter your questions in the comments box below and we'll answer them here, because we love you.

 

Is there a chance I will burn too?

If you run into open flames then yes.

 

How long does the festival go for?

Valencia hosts five days and nights of festivities for Las Fallas. However, us Stokies go for the real deal; La Crema, the actual burning on the 19th. We will camp out at a beautiful beachside campsite for the weekend and we will watch in awe as the effigies go up in smoke, we will drink sangria and we will dance in the street.

 

What will the weather be like?

The festival celebrates the coming of spring and the passing of winter. Which means nice days and chilly nights with a slight chance of rain, but usually as dry as a camel's hump. It will still be fairly cold so rugging up would be smart. However, the fires warm your bones so wear some layers you can strip off in the heat of the moment. Literally.

 

Do we get dins dins?

Si! You get one chef-prepared dinner and two hearty breakies. And the campsite has a really reasonable cafe for the other night.

 

Can I bring my own booze?

No need! We have you sorted. 10€ a night will get you UNLIMITED beer & sangria from 8am to midnight.
