From the mighty Puig Campana to the hidden jewels like Sierra Aixorta and Pla de La Casa this week of walking tackles the highest peaks in Valencia province. Its not all hard work though! There will be time to relax and absorb the panoramic views and explore some of the ancient castles historic Moorish villages.

Itinerary - this is a typical weeks walking, but it may vary according to weather conditions, etc,

Day 1: Arrival in Abdet. A short walk around the village (depending on your arrival time), looking at some old mills, ancleint irrigation systems, and the old wash house (lavadero).

Day 2: Sierra Aixorta Summit & the Rock Arches. Amazing rock arches and an easy but spectacular summit

Day 3: Serrella Castle and Summits. Our route follows an ancient mule track that negotiates a hidden canyon and a massive rock arch, it then visits the spectacular ruined Moorish castle perched high on rocky ridge, finally traversing an easy ridge to the summit of Mala de Llop

Day 4: Pla de la Casa & The Snow Traders Route. To the North of Abdet lies the Sierra Serrella, we explore the route that ice traders of the 17th and 18th century would have used, and visit the massive ice well (nevera) that remains high on the summit of Pla de la Casa

Day 5: The mighty Puig Campana dominates the Coastline in this area. It is one of our longer walks but the views are stunning! The 2nd highest peak in Valencia province is a rewarding expedition.

Day 6: Aitana Summit and the Boulder Field traverse. This walk visits the highest summit in Valenica at over 5,000 feet, where we explore some enormous rock crevasses (100's of mertres deep) and also a great path through the Partagat boulder field

Day 7: Bernia Summit and through the Ridge. We head to the Sierra Bernia which lies beyond Guadalest. A superb route with an easy scramble to reaching the rocky East summit. We also visit an unusual Mozarabic fort. Then a natural tunnel through the mountain!

Day 8: Depart Abdet
