Las Fallas Festival 2017

Valencia, Spain

15th - 20th March 2017

Setting fire to things at Las Fallas Festival 2017

Includes cabin-style accommodation sleeping bags, hot hearty breakfast each morning and delicious dinner every night, nightly transfers to and from Las Fallas, experienced guides, and an Hour of Power Drinks Special in 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 city of just 1 million inhabitants, but this increases to around 3 million flame-lovers during the event. 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.

  • Where the Wild Oranges roam.

    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!

    Campsite Address:

    Carretera del Riu, 486
    46012 – Pinedo (Valencia)
    Valencia

    Aeroplanes are fast

    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. From there it’s just 5 stops on the 190a Bus to Camping Coll Vert. Check out the little hint below for details of your Valencia – Camping Coll Vert commute.

    Trains are simple

    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.
    FOR QUICK, CHEAP AND EASY TRAINS CHECK OUT EUROVENTURE.

    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.

    Valencia to the Campsite:

    From the central train Station (Valencia Estacio del Nord) walk 5 minutes out the door to the Gran Via de Germanias-4 bus stop. Get Bus 190a and ride it 5 stops to Carrera del Riu. Once you get off, you’ll see Camping Coll Vert 100 meters in front of you, and there Stoke shall be!

    Campsite Address:

    Camping Coll Vert
    Carretera del Riu, 486

  • Enter all of your questions in the Ask a Question Tab and we’ll answer them here…

    Do you provide transport from Valencia centre?
    We will have daily shuttles between Valencia and the campsite to join in the festivities of Las Fallas.

    What is the breakfast like?
    Breakfast is bacony and eggy and delicious. Sometimes there’a pancake or two thrown in for good measure. Our chefs are pretty dang good at food.

    Are there lockers where we can put our passports or other important items?
    The campsite itself has no lockers, but we have a campervan which gets locked every night and we can put small valuables in there during the festival and when we’re away from the campsite.

    Are these questions really the most frequently asked?
    No, but if you have any specific questions you must email info@stoketravel.com – the guys in the office know absolutely everything about anything.
