Price: $17.95


Add to wish list


Detailed Product Description
2001. 286 pp, maps, color photos.

The rugged mountains of the Costa Blanca offer wonderful walking in a landscape of pinnacled ridges, enormous crags and shady pines. Orange and almond groves enhance the valleys, whilst attractive mountain villages provide hospitality, offering a taste of the real Spain, far removed in character from the developed coastal strip.

The walks are described in two books, which split roughly into west (book 1) and east (book 2).

BOOK ONE covers the area north and west of Benidorm and includes walks in:

  • Sierra Aitana, Monte Ponoch, Puig Campana
  • The Val de Arc
  • Benidorm Area - Sierra Helada, Sierra Cortina
  • Sierra Serrella / Aixorta
  • Val de Algar
  • Val de Galinera / Forada
  • North-west Sierras
  • Outlying areas.

Two multi-day walks are also included – the Gallinera Way and Costa Blanca Mountain Way.
