Origins of the Mediterranean countryside

The Moors were the architects of this landscape, converting steep mountainsides into terraces, springs, footpaths and cobbled mule trails. You will also make ascents of two outstanding sierras, Aitana and Serrella, for panoramic views of both the Marina Alta and the Marina Baja. We have chosen routes using farm tracks, footpaths and mule trails that include some of the most interesting and characteristic features of the area. Road walking is generally limited to short stretches near to towns and villages.
Navigating is made easy with our Garmin hand-held GPS to ensure you get to your destination on time, or download the routes onto your Smartphone or your own GPS if you prefer. Maps and explanatory notes to accompany the trek are also provided to so you know about the countryside you will be walking through.
We transfer your bags from hotel to hotel so you only need carry what you need for the day. From December to February you may encounter snow on the upper reaches of the Sierra de Aitana. You are unlikely to meet many other walkers as the area is still largely undiscovered.
