Mountain excursion Alicante

November 02,2015 Eva Oscarsson 0 comments

Look for an active Mountain Holiday in Alicante and Murcia. There are many mountain ranges to choose from. You can treek, climb and cycle

Treek, bike and excursions

Check out national parks  and hike and cycling trails.

Vias Verdes, or the green routes are a nice alternative for car-free trails and routes. The “Maigmó”  trail is 22 km  and starts north Sant Vicent del Raspeig.  For more pictures Via Verde Maigmó.

Climbing in Alicante

Check out the climbing federation “Federació d’Esports de Muntanya i Escalada de la Comunitat Valenciana “.


Not far from Ciudad Quesada is the town  Crevillente and the mountain range “Sierra de Crevillente”. For more information on climbing and hiking .

The Orihuela mountain range

One of the closest mountain ranges to Villa Balea is the Orihuela Mountain range crossing the border between the Alicante and Murcia provinces. The mountain range is low with the highest peak 634 meter above sea level. Nevertheless the terrain is varied and hiking is good.
