Where we are
Visit Natura is an Eco-Tourism company based in the Natural Park of Albufera de Valencia. The enchanting city of Valencia is surrounded by extremely diverse natural environments, with a rich bio-diversity and some amazing protected nature reserves. The autonomous region of the Valencian Community is home to 22 designated Natural Parks. In addition to the natural diversity, the region also boasts an exceptional cultural and historical richness just waiting to be explored.
Who we are
Visit Natura is owned and operated by Yanina Maggiotto and David Warrington, both professional, licenced guides. The organisation is accredited by the Department of the Environment and holds the prestigious certificate of the official brand of the Natural Parks, guaranteeing best practice and environmental responsibility. We also hold the “Qualitur” certificate which is awarded by the Department of Tourism to high quality service providers.
What we offer
We design and provide environmental activities for groups and families, based on the needs of the client. This can be purely leisure based or can focus firmly on environmental education and outdoor activities. Our key operating philosophy is to offer tailor made activities and experiences, focussing on the environment, natural history, eco-systems, culture and local history. Rather than simply offering a standard product, we encourage our clients to discuss with us their priorities and budgets, and based upon those, we design and propose specific activities.
Yanina Maggiotto was born in Argentina and has been passionate about wildlife since her childhood. She moved to Spain in 2002 and fell in love with the Albufera de Valencia Natural Park, where she now lives with her family. She is formally qualified in Tourism, is a fully licensed guide and as well as acting as a consultant on eco-tourism, she is also heavily involved in numerous local conservation projects.
David Warrington was born in Sheffield, England and began his fascination with nature and adventure as a child in the Peak District National Park. He moved to Spain in 2006 and was amazed by the natural diversity of the Valencia region, a huge influence in the decision to establish an eco-tourism business soon after. He now lives in the beautiful Mediterranean city of Valencia with his family. David is a professional and licensed guide and holds a certificate in Wilderness First Aid. He regularly works as a consultant to promote sustainable nature tourism.
