Description

The elegant edges of the Costa Blanca provide the peak climbing experience in the Valencian city of Alicante.

Hugging the Mediterranean coastline, the Costa Blanca offers endless routes of exploration. We’ll travel between the spaces on either side of the aretes, at times walking and at times climbing, depending on the terrain in which we’re travelling.

There are stacks of summits accessible for climbers of all levels and abilities, so it’ll be simple to choose the ideal climbs suited to you.

The stunning mountains of Alicante are home to endless supplies of climbing routes that receive a warm and pleasant climate. Along with its noted cuisine and customs, all are combined to make Alicante a favourite destination for outdoor enthusiasts.

While hiking and climbing the rocks of Alicante, you’ll hear the constant crashing of the Mediterranean waters.

The ridges of Benicadell and Bernia are two of the most classic in the Valencian Community, and some of the most beautiful in the country.

The calcareous mountain of Benicadell acts as a natural divide between the provinces of Alicante and Valencia. Its summit stretches to 1,104 meters and is home to some quality climbing spots.

The ridge of Bernia is a dramatically rocky crest that runs from east to west. It rises to 1,126 meters and is closer to the sea, in the area of Calpe and Altea.

About the guide

Born in Sax, a town in the province of Alicante, started climbing with 8 years, thanks to my parents who were the ones who started me in this sport.

With 19 years I decided to start with courses guide, starting with the mountain sports technician, which I studied in 2005 at the High Mountain School of Benasque. I started spending summers working as a guide in Asturias (Picos de Europa) and winters on the ski resorts of Valle de Tena, Pyrenees. It was here where I learned to ski and began to discover the winter mountain, the other side of what was used.

After spending a few years living in the "North" and meet the Alpine side of the mountain, I decided to start with what I really like, mountaineering, so I started with the course of sports Technical High Mountain. This gave me the motivation to come to the Alps where I've been more than 6 years living and enjoying the endless possibilities for this place. I spend half of the year in Chamonix, and half in Briançon, in the Ecrins massif.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
