Barcelona to Las Fallas 2017

Valencia, Spain

17th - 20th March 2017

Ride With us From Barcelona to Las Fallas Festival 2017

Includes return private bus from Barcelona, cabin-style accommodation sleeping bags, hot hearty breakfast each morning and delicious dinner every night, nightly transfers to and from Las Fallas, experienced guides, unlimited beer and sangria available at the campsite for 10 euros per day and free shots and crazy drink deals at a central bar in Valencia every night to pre-game for massive nights out during the Festival!

Spain is famous for its unique and crazy street festivals, and this fiesta is one-of-a-kind. Las Fallas Festival 2017 takes place in Valencia, a couple of hours from Barcelona so there’s no way we’re missing this festival! Meet the Stoke bus at Plaza Catalunya on the evening of Friday 17th March and we’ll head over to Valencia for two nights of fireworks, flames and fun! We leave after La Crema (the massive bonfire) on Sunday 19th March and arrive in Barcelona in the wee hours of Monday morning in time to get back to the real world.

Las Fallas Festival 2017 is a celebration of the coming of spring. It is a festival to wish a jubilant bon voyage to winter, where locals bid farewell to those cold days and even colder nights by building giant ninots (puppets or dolls) out of cardboard, wood, paper machè and plaster, and then burn them to the ground. There are spectacular fireworks set off from every angle, and, of course, drinking sangria and dancing in the streets.

The ninots are made to look lifelike and usually fit in with current events, poking fun at Spanish politicians and celebrities. The massive structures are sometimes lifted into place by cranes on the day of la plantà or the rising, and they remain here until the 19th March, the day of the burning. Young men wander around the city with axes making little hard-to-spot holes in the ninots and stuffing them full of fireworks. Just before midnight the crowds in Valencia start to chant, the streetlights are turned off and finally at midnight the ninots are set on fire. What follows is an explosion of fireworks, roaring fires and full-on excitement.

    We stay just outside Valencia city at Camping Coll Vert. The campsite is well connected to Valencia city, and we’ll have nightly guided shuttles or during the day you can hop on the public bus for just €1.50 to get into Valencia to enjoy Las Fallas!

    The campsite is not wild in the slightest, with full-time security, a bar, restaurant and shop onsite, a great swimming pool, clean amenities and great authentic Spanish atmosphere.

    And there is so much more to the region outside of the festivities! Valencia has a wonderful old walled city, great modern architecture, clubs, restaurants, beaches and bars. It’s just wonderful! Come and see it! You’re going to love it! We adore it!
