How much we have changed!

Many things have changed, almost all for the better; and together, during this time, we have become the reference for family leisure in Navarra. Sendaviva is already part of the collective memory of a generation of children from Navarre, the Basque Country, Aragon and many other places in Spain and abroad. And we are also already, for the inhabitants of La Ribera, an important economic engine.

Do you want to know how the new Palmyra was designed?

They were not easy beginnings...

Eagle's eye view of Arguedas.

Construction of the park began in 2002. On a piece of land with no vegetation. These drawings you see below (which were part of the project presentation) gradually came to life. A lake was built, trees and plants were planted in the hottest areas, rides and enclosures were built to house the animals, and a real circus was erected. In the first season we only received 70,000 visitors, it was difficult to make ourselves known. But the visitor surveys were very positive: the vast majority wanted to come again.

...but in 2006 we tripled the number of visitors.

Guess who sang the Sendaviva song?

Music has always been very important in Sendaviva during these 20 seasons. To accompany visitors in the funniest moments, to create excitement in the Circus or to accompany our advertising.

Many times the children themselves have been the protagonists in the songs of these commercials. Do you recognize this little girl at the time of the recording of one of our songs? Answer this questionnaire and you could win a free ticket to the park.

There have been moments
unrepeatable in the park.

With the birth of two White Tiger cubs

It was quite an event. The cubs, a male and a female, were the offspring of the park's white tiger pair. The birth of this type of tigers in captivity is rare and it is currently estimated that there are less than 300 tigers in the world. It was such a great success and their first days of life so exciting for all Sendaviva's followers that we held a contest to name them. Now they have grown up and are called Zuri and Tristan.

Difficult moments

As the COVID epidemic and the fire of 2022

Drawing of the little donkey Palmira with a mask for the covid.

In a very short period of time, two events came together that were beyond our control and were a hard blow to the Park. The COVID forced us to close the facilities for a long period; and, when we were recovering, a fire in the area affected part of the park, forcing us to close it again for a few weeks. But in Sendaviva we are tenacious and our visitors encouraged us to continue without faltering and to work tirelessly so that everyone can continue to enjoy it.

And others that filled us with joy!

Like the awards and recognitions received

For the second consecutive year we have been awarded with the PAC AWARDS as the best Nature Park. We have also been distinguished with the Family Tourism Award granted by the Spanish Federation of Large Families for being an entity "sensitive to the needs of families, which thinks of them when designing its strategy, products and activities, as well as the way of communicating them".
