Walk at your own pace from one hotel of character to the next on a non-group,self-guided walking holiday in the mountains of Alicante. We transfer your luggage, and supply you with our highly reliable route notes, leaving you free to enjoy the rugged scenery.
With Moorish castles and Neolithic cave paintings to discover, not to mention a wealth of flora and fauna, there’s more to a walking holiday in the mountains of Alicante than just walking. These being Slow holidays, we encourage you to explore the quiet villages that you pass through, and to admire your surroundings – you’re not part of a group, and have no luggage (we transfer your bags to the next hand-picked hotel), so make the most of it, following our trusted route notes at your own pace.
The mountains of Alicante are not far from the bustle of the Costa Blanca, yet feel off the beaten track. This is a secret world of craggy limestone peaks, dramatic gorges, verdant valleys and terraces of almonds, all of which makes for great walking.
