The peach tree pink blossom route

A BURST OF NATURAL COLOUR

As the winter comes to an end, the peach tree begins its flowering stage. This is the first great step in the stages of the fruit. The fields fill with an impressive pink colour, a burst of colour unique to our land.

Discover this natural sight and find out about irrigated agriculture in the same field, walking among trees together with the farmer.

DESCRIPTION OF THE ROUTE

3-hour route divided into two parts.

Visit to the orchard (1.30h)

This route is done by bus with a farmer guide who will explain the most important aspects of irrigated crops and of this first stage of the fruit.

The bus makes a number of strategic stops from where you can walk among the flowering trees and to natural viewpoints to enjoy this wonderful spectacle.

Visit to Aitona’s historic district (1.30h)

Once we arrive in the village, we’ll give you a walking tour along its most emblematic streets. You’ll hear about the myths and legends of the village’s ancestors and discover its exceptional architectural and cultural heritage.

And through a very special exhibition, you’ll see how close we are to Japan.

All bus departures are from Aitona’s Sports Pavilion.

(Route available during the flowering period, at the beginning of March and subject to the weather).
