COACH TOUR 26TH & 27TH NOVEMBER 2024 GIANT CRYSTAL GEODE

COACH TOUR 26TH & 27TH NOVEMBER 2024 GIANT CRYSTAL GEODE

A ‘One Night Wander’ small group tours where we spend one night not too far away so we can really discover the local area. This is a brilliant coach tour where you visit a crystal lined cavern which is the largest accessible Geode in the world! We spend time getting to know about the mining which first began during Roman times, visiting the largest collection of Luminescent Minerals in Europe and going underground in to the Mina Rica where the Geode is. This amazing crystal cavern is encased in a rugby ball shaped cavity of 11 cubic meters which is 8 meters long and 2 meters wide. The finger nail thin 2 meters white gypsum crystals jut out at a jumble of angles from the walls. From our 4* Senator Aguilas Hotel on a half board basis there is time to explore Aguilas and we finish with a Menu del Dia at a Beach Front Chinginguito as a final stop to reminisce and savour the memories which we have made.

  • Visiting the Geode in the Mine:
    • Visiting the Geode in the Mine requires you to have a good level of mobility. You can enter with walking sticks or crutches, but not with walkers, wheelchairs or scooters. You need to be able to remain standing for 90 minutes and to be able to descend and ascend 160 steps in each direction.
    • The mine is an enclosed underground space and is therefore not suitable for anyone with claustrophobia, breathing or anxiety issues which can be brought on by being in an enclosed underground environment.
    • You must wear trainers to visit the mine and put on a mask when you are peering inside the crystal cave. You are given a hair net and helmet to wear, light weight clothes are idea as it is a constant 18 degrees in the mine.
    • There is the option to enjoy the coach tour without visiting the mine. You will have a two and a half hour stop in the area where the mine tours start. There is a lovely view from here to the sea, picnic tables and benches, toilets, drink and snack vending machine and the coach will be open for you to use.
