Single clients € 200 supplement.

Level:  Difficult

Few areas in the world are as wonderfully surprising as the Costa Blanca. Just when you think that you know it well, you discover that this is only half way true. The bustle of the coast contrasts with the peace of the inland villages. The scent and roll of the sea contrast with the fragrance of the herbs, the rosemary and thyme, the orange blossoms, and the sound of the crickets. The Northern part of the coastline is so very different from the southern part. You know the one, but do you know the other?

Let the sun warm your face in the middle of winter. Let the sun shake your winter blues. The Costa Blanca has a beautiful golden light, even more so in winter. The summer heat creates a light fog, which the locals call “calima”, that softens the edges of everything in sight. Winter has a gift for the hiker: beautiful clear skies, sharp outlines, the warmth of the bright sun capable of shaking anybody’s winter blues!

The program we suggest is one of the most intense and demanding in the Costa Blanca, touching 6 of the most emblematic and picturesque summits in the area and including one bivouac night under the stars of the Mediterranean.
