Itinerary - (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, ancient irrigation systems, and the old wash house (lavadero).
Day 2 - Pla de la Casa and the Ice 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 3 - 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 4 - Bernia Fort and through the Ridge. We head to the Bernia peak which lies beyond Guadalest. A superb route visiting an unusal fort and then a natural tunnel through the mountain!
Day 5 - Depart Abdet
As part of the week you are invited to help clear/maintain some local walking paths. This involves clearing collapsed walls and rocks, cutting back fallen trees and thorns, and making signs. This is of course optional and is just for a couple of hours, it's actually great fun!
