Alicante, Above Famorca
Mountains of Alicante – La Marina

Many of the hoards of people who pass through Alicante airport each year are unaware of the beautiful mountain landscapes that can be found just a few miles inland.  The Alicante mountains are dotted with traditional villages linked by ancient tracks, making this area ideal for a walking holiday. Just twenty-five kilometres from the Costa Blanca, the contrast with the popular coastal resorts could not be sharper. On our tour you will enjoy some of the best walking you can experience anywhere in Spain – through beautiful landscape which remains completely unspoiled.

    “Donal led walks for us on four holidays –   Alicante Mountains, Matarranya, Amalfi and Alpujarras….He is an exceptionally good walk leader and walk organiser who prepares meticulously and establishes a good rapport with all walkers”.

La Serrella valley

Our tour is based in the Serrella valley, whose mountains and walks are the most varied and spectacular in the area. This area feels suitably remote and  is perfect walking country, with routes through almond and olive groves and along panoramic ridges and dramatic ravines. It is also an area steeped in history, with Moorish castles, old morisco villages and abandoned terracing.
