The iconic mountain of Costa Blanca – Puig Campana and one of the hardest routes in the area. We will go all the way to the peak to contemplate the most spectacular 360 views of the surroundings.
We’ll meet in Valencia in the parking lot on av. Aragón in front of Mestalla stadium and drive to Finestrat. Once there, we’ll have a cup of coffee on a terrace of a bar before starting the hike. We will make the ascent along “la canal” – the Eastern side of the moutain. Once we get to the peak, we will stop there for lunch. The descent goes along the classic “Volta al Puig Campana” route, all the way down to Finestrat. Once we’re back at the village, we’ll have a drink on a terrace and return to Valencia.
Difficulty: epic (13km with 1200m elevation gain).
Technical level: high (long and steep descent from the peak).
