FITUR 2019 AWARDS
A look at the stars through other eyes. Aliaga, Teruel
A tourism experience that lets you discover our neighbours of the solar system with your five senses. Touch the Moon and Mars; smell the Moon, Uranus and the entire Space; eat like an astronaut.
Discover the solar system to scale, do crafts with your family, participate in gastronomic and audiovisual competitions, among others, and of course, astronomical observation. A space dinner and an evening under the stars.
Active tourism in the Valporquero Cave. León
Cross through the heart of the mountain on an active tourism adventure (speleologycanyoning) that is adapted for people with no prior experience.
Accompanied by guides and equipped with neoprene wetsuits and latest generation LED helmets, we travel the 4 kilometres of the underground river in the Valporquero cave, in a succession of lakes that are crossed by swimming, jumping into waterholes, rappelling down waterfalls, slides, etc. Every year over 4,000 people enjoy this adventure, which in 2019 will see its 20th year.
Latitud Tenerife. Tenerife
Tenerife’s great ecotourism experience, specially designed for travellers, either in “organised trips” or “on your own”, crossing the island from end to end through its main Protected Natural Areas in several stages (walking, running or biking) including, for the more adventurous, climbing to the top of the Teide.
Accessible Guided Visits. Madrid
The Accessible Guided Visits program comprises free-of-charge tours through the historical centre of Madrid, especially designed and aimed for people with disabilities and their companions. The tours are based on four themes and include the main itineraries through the historical centre of Madrid: Historical Madrid, Monumental Madrid, the Madrid of Cervantes and Women who stood out in the history of Madrid. Professional guides lead the tours throughout the entire route and they are offered from Thursday to Sunday. The explanations are given in Spanish and the group capacity is up to 20 people. The tours last approximately two hours.
Lorino: Whales and whale boats. Living history. Russia
A nature and anthropological trip to Russia's most remote area and one of the most inaccessible parts. This program was created by a Russian-Lithuanian anthropologist, for those travellers who are looking to have totally new experiences in remote areas inhabited by minority cultures. We will discover how the various indigenous people live and we will share in their day-to-day. Hunting and fishing in an incomparable place to watch marine fauna and shepherding herds of reindeer are their way of life. A true anthropological adventure for the brave.
500 years of History and culture in America. Hernán Cortés: from Havana to Mexico. Mexico- Cuba
This interesting route is product of a collaboration between Cuba and Mexico, joining two nations and commemorating the fifth centennial of the founding of Havana, a World Heritage City that was the starting point for Hernán Cortés towards Mexico. Following in his steps we discover idyllic landscapes, thousand-year-old monuments, as well as the Spanish legacy mixed with the ancestral culture of those lands, to create something totally new that still lasts today. Busy festivals, centuries-old traditions, impressive monuments, varied gastronomy, all to celebrate this centennial.
Ancestral Experience, Omo Valley. Ethiopia
To live with the most fascinating tribe of the Omo Valley is an unforgettable experience that will immensely enrich your life. One of the tribe families will host, in their home, a family or couple of travellers who will share their traditional way of life: shepherding, harvesting, traditional dance and handicraft production, among others, throughout the whole day.
