Alicante’s Secret Mountains

Land of the Moors
This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided hotel-to-hotel walking, luggage transported
  • dramatic ravines, fertile valleys
  • region steeped in history
  • varied walking
  • superb hospitality

Just twenty-five kilometres from the Costa Blanca, as the crow flies, rise the secret mountains of Alicante. This is another world completely, beautiful and completely unspoiled, where terraced slopes, dotted with small villages, climb towards craggy limestone peaks that soar over a thousand metres into the sky.
Spring is a particularly special time here, when the almond blossom lights up the terraces and lime-loving flowers provide spectacular displays that last until June.
Beneath the craggy limestone peaks, enjoy some of the best walking you can experience anywhere in Spain, with routes through fertile valleys coated in almond groves, and along panoramic ridges and dramatic ravines. As you walk, you discover sweeping views and reminders of the region’s multi-layered history, as well as witnessing its rich traditions. In this sunny corner of Valencia, life moves at a slower pace, and you receive a warm and genuine welcome at the authentic mountain hotels along the route.
