The Sierra De Aitana Trek trip starts and ends in Benimantell. It is a trekking trip that takes 8 days taking you through Sierra De Serrella, Benimantell, Orxeta and 4 other destinations in Spain. Sierra De Aitana Trek is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Although close to the Costa Blanca, the dramatic massif of Sierra de Aitana has remained a secret from all but a few discerning visitors. We follow traditional footpaths and mule tracks, mostly along ridge lines, giving us spectacular panoramic vistas, and then descend to beautiful valleys with natural springs, fantastic limestone amphitheatres, and where castles dot distant hilltops. The rocky peaks and steep valleys which sweep down to the Mediterranean coast, benefit from the privilege of a warm climate for over 300 days of the year, making it an ideal location for out-of-season walking.

Winter walking in a little known area of Spain
5 - Excellent
“This area of Spain is little known and on three walks we saw no-one else and on one we saw just one couple. It is just behind Benidorm but is little touched by tourism and gives an insight into rural Valencia. The walks are demanding but the views are breathtaking and are either to and from the hotel door or after a short drive. The weather in February was mild and sunny and the lower slopes were covered with almond blossom, making it an unusual opportunity to do European mountain walking in the winter months.”

4 - Very Good
“A memorable trip based in a perfect location for both trekking & leisure time. The walks are lengthy but well planned to made more manageable with long gradual ascents/descents. A basic hotel but with friendly staff & excellent food fuelling you for the long days ahead! It does have a pool for warmer days (larger than a plunge pool as described in the particulars).”
A great week of hiking
5 - Excellent
“Great hiking in wonderful mountain scenery. The accommodation is in a quiet and peaceful location, and serves very good food.”
