Description

We have designed Allured to help you experience authentic moments and embrace a new culture during your Galicia holidays. This is the perfect chance to discover Illa de Arousa (Arousa Island), the best spot in Rías Baixas, not only a guided tour, but a real emotion!

The history of the Illa de Arousa island is deeply related to the sea. Heaven is here, no doubt. A tiny island with which you will fall in love when crossing the 2 kilometers bridge that separates it from the continent. Its inhabitant’s rhythm is marked by the Sea, and all of them feel immense respect for nature, as an environmental gift and as a source of income.

We offer you a Sea adventure, joining a fishing crew in their boat to appreciate a fascinating sunrise and understand their hard work in our “Bateas”, floating platforms where our Bateiros raise and collect mussels.

Back in the Port, the Goday´s old canning factory and museum will introduce us straight away to the Illa de Arousa`s history, and we will be back to the past helped by new virtual reality technologies that will leave you speechless!!You’ll have the opportunity to feel how the work in a canning factory was, a work carried mostly by women, as men were sailing

And to recover your strengths, a seafood lunch with drinks included will be served in a sailors’ restaurant selected by us.

The aim of this guided tour at Illa de Arousa is to make you feel the heartbeat of a tiny island where the old traditions of Galician fishermen are still alive.

This tour includes:

  Inclusion: A friendly crew of fishermen with a long experience and a friendly Official English/Portuguese Guide during the day will take care of you.

  Amazement: A real fishing day with locals discovering Illa de Arousa natural heritage.

  Taste: Best seafood ever, fished in the morning for your lunch and paired with our awarded Albarino Wines.

  Memories: You will receive a gift for you to take home and keep the experience in your mind for good.

  Safety: All of our tours are covered by an insurance.

We also recommend you bring a bottle of water, sunscreen, and a hat during the summer months. Winters are not cold, but they are rainy so that a raincoat might be necessary.

PAYMENTS AND CANCELLATIONS

In love with the Island? Find out more ideas!

  Rent a bike to discover Illa de Arousa! Almost 10 km of bicycle lane to find quiet landscapes and white sand beaches.

  Follow the “Pilros” Route, passing through the Carreirón Natural Park in the south area of the island. You might discover different ecosystems and waterbirds, as this is a passing area of migratory birds.

  Book an evening to visit the Lighthouse and enjoy the sunset contemplating the coast of “O Barbanza.” Build in 1852 and located in “Punta Cabalo”, it is a strategic point to warn seamen. Operating as a restaurant during the last years, you might get some drinks!

 A Illa de Arousa offers 11 km of beaches and coves and up to 80 sandy areas with crystal waters. To name a few try “Area da Secada”, “O Bao” or “Camaxe.”

  There are festivals during all summer in the Island, as “Festas do Carmo,” during the second fortnight of July, or gastronomic festivals, dedicated to the red clam or razor shell in July or the octopus festival during the first weekend of September.
