Description

Join Joel, UIMLA-certified Mountain Leader, on this amazing 2-day trail running experience linking the 7 villages within Tinença de Benifassá Natural Park, near Valencia.

Between the regions of Els Ports and El Baix Maestrat is the Natural Park of La Tinença de Benifassà which covers much of the historic valencian comarque and offers beautiful mountainous terrain of great ecological value, where you can find abundance of wild black pines, big-leaf linden, beech trees as well as foxes, deers, boars, weasels and mighty golden eagles.

One of the best ways to discover and explore the area of Tinença de Benifassà is through the Route of the 7 Villages, which allows us to visit the most emblematic features of the Park. And one of the advantages of running this trail is that we will be able to cross landscapes and sights that would otherwise take days to explore.

The 7 villages we will go through are Boixar, Coratxà, Castell de Cabres, Bel, La Pobla de Benifassà, Ballestar and Fredes. On our way back we will go through stunning places like El Portell del Infern, Robert Salt, the hermitage of Sant Cristòfol and the beautiful Ulldecona reservoir.

We will spend 2 days running and spend the night at the Font Lluny lodge, in the village of Benifassá. The pace of the route will be approx. 5KMs/hour, the first stage being around 8 hours total including the stops and a similar time for the second stage. However, the pace will be adapted to the needs and conditions of the group and, if necessary, we can trim the route.

Request to book this journey now to discover the history of each place, the anecdotes of each village; we will talk with local inhabitants, try the delicious cuisine and experience this magnificent natural environment which was declared a Natural Park in 2006.

If you’re up for the challenge and think you can manage a longer, more demanding trail-running experience, you should definitely check out this once-in-a-lifetime 4-day trip I’m also offering, across a stunning National Park in Catalunya.

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.
