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.
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.
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.
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.
Sendaviva opened its new attraction on May 24, 2008. A 650-meter zip line, the largest in Europe at the time. The event was attended by many celebrities and almost everyone had the courage to try it.
Our Andean condor is called ....... and arrived from Chile on ..... He had lived in a room in a house......bla bla bla bla............
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.
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".
Sendaviva is moving towards a sustainable park model, within a natural environment, with increasingly innovative and fun attractions, and spectacular shows that complete an exclusive and unique experience for families, in a place of family leisure, sustainable, and with a commitment to the future of the planet, education and quality time shared with the family.
The use of technology will enhance the visitor experience and provide powerful new leisure experiences.
