Enjoy Cabo de Gata

Cabo de Gata Natural Park - Níjar

XI Cabo de Gata Níjar Geopark Week

The 11th Week of the Cabo de Gata Níjar Geopark starts on Friday, April 28 and lasts until May 7 with very different activities -many free and others at very affordable prices- and at all times. Live the Geopark Week in the first person, it is an unforgettable experience.

 

As every year, the human team of the Cabo de Gata Níjar Natural Park and Geopark, with the collaboration of UAL, CECOUAL, the Spanish Geological Society and local companies, offer us a program that provides knowledge and fun. We repeat ourselves saying that "what is known is loved and what is loved is cared for" because the discovery of the richness and beauty that surrounds us wins the appreciation and respect of many people and a vital rethinking of our environment.

The Geopark, as we have always said, "is not about stones but about people" and everything it offers is there, from the starry sky to an underwater tunnel and from a walk with expert geologists to a kayak route with local guides. 

Learn, enjoy, discover and surprise ourselves continuously, as the saying goes "the more you have the more you want" and it is true, with a good experience at the Cabo de Gata Níjar Geopark you will be "hooked" forever.

Take the agenda and the pen that we detail the Programming *:
