Walk in Spain, for beginners, experienced and ambitious walkers. An overview of adequate, well described walks at different levels.
We suggest an area in Spain, that provides every element for a unique walkingholiday.
Not many walkers know that the Costa Blanca hinterland is a walkingarea with stunning views and with many walks at different levels.
We have lived in the village of Sella for ten years know, as the owners of B&B Villa Pico.
Sella is an authentic Spanish mountain village in the middle of the beautiful Aitana mountain range, with its endless walking options and wonderful views.
With Sella as a base you can do dozens of walks during which you might only spot goats, sheep or a local working his land. And all this just 16 kms. from the the Costa Blanca beaches of Villajoyosa, Benidorm, Albir, etc. So you can walk in the morning and spend the afternoon on the beach!
Nature, peace and quiet, and challenges during the same walk. We collected the most interesting walks for our guests.
Some walks are officially set out, some are designed by us, with the help of local people, who have used these paths and small roads for generations to get to their fincas and huertas to collect the almonds, olives, grapes and other fresh products.
The walks offer beautiful nature, mountain and coastal views and the Mediterranean culture of Sella and surroundings.
We offer over 30 walks, easy ones, average ones and strenuous ones. We have a good walk for every walker. Every walk offers interesting and sometimes spectaculair views!
We offer a standard hiking package for the beginner or less experienced hiker who likes to keep his fitness. The fitter more experienced hiker will be satisfied and there are the challenging climbs for the fanatic "die-hard".
Thinking along, GPS service, walks described on paper.
We help you to build up the walking program, so you can get used to the mountain walks at your own pace. We explain you the walking routes, advice you about the program, and give tips and info where and when needed, all to make your walkingholiday a succes.
Most walks are available on paper, we have designed many ourselves and we use little text and many pictures, one at each decision moment during your walk.
We also have two GPS devices available for our guests, at no extra charge. If it is your first time with a GPS, Benny will give you a short instruction, so you will quickly get used to the device.
The hours and dayparts you do not walk during your walkingholiday, there are many options as well, you can relax on the Villa Pico terraces and enjoy the views or read a book, have a dip in he pool. Also there are several excursions you can do, for example to the beach of Villajoyosa, the city of Alicante, the fish auction in Calpe, etc.
