Alicante in natural

Alicante is a hugely varied province, with a very different landscape, from the sea to the peaks of the Sierra de Aitana, the Serrella, Xortà or the Sierra de Bernia among others. The contrast is such that we can go from the coastal city of Benidorm to the small villages of the Guadalest valley in just 25 minutes, so the variety of activities that can be done is almost infinite. Alicante is a paradise for nature lovers.

The province of Alicante is a hiker's paradise, its mild climate in autumn, winter and spring make our province the ideal destination outside the summer.

Climbing in the Guadalest Valley

Alicante is also a paradise for climbers, with its limestone rock walls, there are many places where you can practice your favorite sport. As a good climber friend of mine says: when you like to climb, you only see rock and here, of course, you will see a lot of rock.

Next to the village of Castell de Guadalest there are some of the best climbing routes in the province. There are different routes for sport climbing and also traditional climbing with routes of up to 3 pitches. The type of rock is very hard grey limestone, reddish in some sections. The strengths of the Guadalest Valley climbing school are its good weather all year round (especially in winter) and the enormous diversity of climbs available, from classic to mega sport.

Nearby we can also find the climbing area of Polop, and on the iconic Monte Ponoig (The Sleeping Lion), we have one of the most spectacular via ferrata in Spain.

There is also the possibility of hiring a climbing guide for an initiation or improvement course.

Discover Beniardà

Beniardá, like the rest of the villages in the Guadalest valley, lets its Moorish roots emerge. The unique layout of its small streets, the choice of the place, the habits of its people and more than one dress make you think of that past civilization that marked such a deep imprint on our land, where they left a very easy to follow trail.
