Sella’s “Water Route” is one of the easier walks here in the Costa Blanca. We already did parts of the walk before and visited its waterfalls in October which are fed by the spring in the “Barranc de L’Arc” after heavy rains.
Last Sunday I received a message from Nima – www.abenteuer-spanien.de – …“Hi Kris, we’re stopping quite close to you, somewhere in the middle of nowhere.” And she sent some coordinates. I put the coordinates into Google and was surprised.
Yes, they were indeed close in their red “Horst,” as 1500 meters is definitely not far away. But this doesn’t necessarily mean that you are able to pass by for a quick coffee here in the Costa Blanca. Nima and her partner Steve were camping by a spring in the next valley over and about 400 meters higher than us.
So I took the car the next day and after a 30 minutes drive Continue Reading →
Today we received an e-mail of Manuela, Anja and Lenny who wanted to thank us for the great time they had here at the Costa Blanca. Thanks a lot, we really enjoyed reading your e-mail.
“Walking around the Puig
Now I’m sitting in the grey Germany and looking at the photos of my last vacation in Spain. It was actually around a year ago when my sister, my son and me soaked up some sun in Spain’s Costa Blanca.
It was a wonderful holiday, not at all boring and one of the highlights was definitely the Continue Reading →
The Ponoig close to Polop is also known as the “sleeping lion”. It offers brilliant multi-pitch climbing, a nice and exposed Via Ferrata which we did last week as well as several walks.
This week we guided a lovely client from Benidorm to the summit of Ponoig. Tony picked up Clare in Benidorm at 09:00 am and took her to Continue Reading →
Rainy season in the Costa Blanca. A few days ago we just went for a short walk, but it was worth it. We just walked a bit along Sella’s “Water Route” to see one of the highlights of this nice walk around Sella – the waterfalls which are only running during rainy periods.
Here some more impressions which invited us to stay a bit longer at that nice spot.
One of our shorter walks we offer is the “Barranc del Cint”. From the Alcoy side a large canyon forms a natural gateway into the “Sierra de la Mariola” mountain range.
During our walk through the canyon vultures accompanied us. Spotting vultures in the “Barranc del Cint” is nearly a guarantee and we really enjoyed those big birds soaring above our heads. Continue Reading →
At the end of January we decided to go inland and to discover the area around Cocentaina and Alcoy. There the Sierra de Mariola and its surrounding nature park rewards the visitor with splendid views towards the highest mountain of the Costa Blanca, the Aitana at 1558 m, and towards the Mediterranean. Furthermore, the nature park is known for its extraordinary flora, especially medicinal herbs, trees and plants. Continue Reading →
Discover Nature – Experience Adventure
This is the theme for our day walks, which we have added to our offer recently.
Discover the Sierras of the Costa Blanca and experience their geology, wildlife and history.
It doesn’t matter if you are a resident of the area and would like to get to know your surroundings better or if you are on holidays in the Costa Blanca, those day walks will suit any expectation.
Escape the winter blues. Visit Spain’s Costa Blanca!
Our new winter walking holiday package “Discover Costa Blanca’s Sierras” invites you to explore the hidden secret of the Costa Blanca, its beautiful mountain ranges.
The “Cabezón de Oro” is at 1,209 meters among the higher peaks in the Costa Blanca. The whole range offers great views towards the coast line between the “Sierra Gelada” to the East and Alicante to the West as well as towards the mountainous back country with its main peaks “Aitana”, “Puig Campana”, “Els Plans” and “El Cid”. It is also know for its craggy rock formations which makes the whole area an interesting spot not only for climbers, but also for walkers.
The “Cabezón de Oro” range contains Continue Reading →
