Sella’s “Water Route” – Easy Walks in the Costa Blanca


The village of Sella

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.

Today we walked from the “Alcantara” spring via “La Solana” into the village of Sella. After a short break we continued towards the park surrounding the water mill Continue Reading →

1500 meters, so close, and yet so far – Walking in Spain’s Costa Blanca

Last Sunday I received a message from Nima – – …“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 →

Walking around the Puig

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.

To the summit of the “sleeping lion”

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.

Sella’s “Water Route”

20151021_103941Rainy 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.




Barranc del Cint

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 →
