As an approximate guide (as each course is different),  green fee prices range from  42-75 Euro depending on the course, for 18 holes.

Many sports and activities are available in the region to compliment beach and sun tourism.


Inland rivers and ravines are good for canoeing and rafting. The hills and mountains provide many good routes for hiking and cycling, riding or you can practice mountain climbing or abseiling.


For motorcycling enthusiasts the Ricardo Tormo International Race Circuit in Cheste (near Valencia) is a must for followers of this sport.


Other more unusual activity options include hot air ballooning, parapenting,  handgliding, caving and bungee jumping.

There are two major routes, both included in the European Long Distance Hiking Route Network, where you can cross the Valencia Region from north to south. There are also numerous short distance walking routes where you can combine the sport with the natural beauty of the interior of the region. There are challenging hiking routes for the experienced walkers through to gentle rambling routes for those who just prefer a gentle but scenic walk.


There are lots of excursion centres and companies that specialise in types of these sports with the necessary equipment to participate in these sports safely.
