The "Sierra De Aitana Trek" tour starts and ends in Guadalest. It is a trekking and hiking tour that takes 8 days taking you through Puig Campana, Guadalest and Aitana in Spain. "Sierra De Aitana Trek" is a guided small group tour 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, for spectacular panoramas, and then descend to beautiful valleys with natural springs and limestone amphitheatres. The rocky peaks and steep valleys that sweep down to the Mediterranean coast benefit from a warm climate for more than 300 days a year, making this an ideal location for out-of-season walking.
