Sierra de Toix and Penon de Ifach are two 330-meter-high rocks located right by the sea between Alicante and Valencia. Recently, I had the opportunity to climb them on several-pitched routes. Read how it was and where else on the Costa Blanca you can do multi-pitch climbing. I write also about attaching the belay device wrong way and what to do to avoid making a mistake like me.
I’ve recently spent 1.5 weeks climbing the Costa Blanca. During this time, we visited several climbing regions – Gandia, Bellus, Sella, Guadalest, Cabeçó d’Or, Sierra de Toix and Peñón de Ifach.
Sandy beaches, nightlife and stunning views – you’ll find all this on Ibiza, one of the most popular sailing destinations in all Spain. The third largest island in the Balearic archipelago, it’s tempting for yachting enthusiasts from all over the world with its friendly sailing conditions, great weather, quality marinas and cultural offerings – there’s always something to do in Ibiza!
We wanted fast access, good weather in mid-March and multi-pitch climbing. The choice fell on Montserrat. A beautiful area about 50 km north of Barcelona.
Sheeps, sore feet and dreams of kebab – that’s what I remembered the most from my trip to Vereda de la Estrella, one of the most popular trails in Sierra Nevada mountains. I walked 33 km with 1300 m of denivelation this day and my plans were even more ambitious.
Quéntar is quiet village 15 km from Granada. I spent there only two nights, during my journey to Sierra Nevada Mountains. It’s not the best place to stay if you think of hiking in this mountains but I recommend this if you just want to spend some time out of city.
Mulhacén (3479 m) is the highest peak in the Iberian Peninsula, located in Sierra Nevada National Park. There are a few trails leading to the summit. Some of them are easy but I chose the harder one – from Trevélez village. I almost succeeded ;)
Known for being the highest village in Spain, for ham and for wonderful hiking routes – Trevélez, the village which I visited one year ago. Read what you can expect there.
I spent only few days in Castellón district, but I had a chance to see it on a ground on short bike trips and from above on parachute jump. It was really beautiful :)
I came to Spain to make skydive over Castellón de la Plana but in the meantime I visited Barcelona. I came to this city at 9 pm. Next day at 9 am I had a train to Castellón and I decided not to sleep and see how Barcelona looks at night. It turned out, it looks a little different that I had imagined.
