Our return to Picos de Europa after the fun last years trip. Check out the report here.
We did the water mills of Lucena route, a 13km route with fabulous swimming spots. Located in the interior of Castelleon province, the route provides plenty of opportunities for refreshing dips whilst avoiding the crowds of some of the more famous natural bathing pools. We started in the pretty village of Lucena del Cid. What … Continue reading The Water Mills of Lucena Del Cid
Agujas de Santa Águeda is located near the seaside town of Benicassim. It is a route that is arguably more of a scramble than a hike, but still super fun - even on the hottest day of the year! We started with a drink in Benicassim, already some of the group were considering if the … Continue reading Agujas de Santa Águeda
Penyagolosa is the second highest mountain in the Valencia Community. This emblematic mountain, in Castellón province, stands out due to its isolated nature. It is easily recognisable due to one side having a clear slope whilst the other side is much steeper. It was the steep side, that was our route for the day. Why … Continue reading The Penyagolosa Scramble
The plan was to have a cheese-fueled weekend in the Bajo Maestrazgo region of Valencian Community. We explored the trail around the towns of Catí and Sant Mateu. Here's how it went.
One of the 'must do' hiking routes of the Valencian province is The Hanging Bridges of Chulilla. This is a route along the Turia river, through the impressive canyon to Charco Azul, the Loriguilla Reservoir and of course, across the famous hanging bridges. The route started in Chulilla, the weather was cloudy and a little chilly … Continue reading The Hanging Bridges of Chulilla
We went to the snow. Snow is fun! Dmitry (allegedly)* beats up small children. That is all I am allowed to remember. The end. *To stay safe from polonium poisoning, we must use the word allegedly. P.S. Dmitry said that I make good jokes and that I could write that here as well. Thank you … Continue reading Snow Hike!

The trip involved a hike through a magical forest before an ascent to the castle in the hopes of finding a mouse. The hike began in the village of Sueras. Fuelled by Allen's Christmas chocolates (thanks Allen), we started uphill … Continue reading Maús Castle

Our hike began at Casas de Bernia, which is a restaurant with a great view of the area towards the sea. Although it took some convincing … Continue reading The Peak of Bernia
The Rocks of Cullera in the Sierra Espadán is one of the best vantage points in the area. From the rock formation it is possible to see all the way to Valencia and the sea. The 15km circular route we did from Almedíjar had a wide variety of trails, including some very wet ones! We … Continue reading The Rocks of Cullera
