Walking in the beautiful Valencian countryside
Guided Walking Holidays - From the Spanish Sierra to the Sea
Travel to Spain’s Southern Valencia region with Ramblers Walking Holidays, offering a wealth of walking trails,
history and natural beauty. It’s an area in which the Romans and
Moors left their architectural mark. The coastline boasts miles of
beautiful beaches, while the sierras serve as a dramatic backdrop to
the Mediterranean Sea.
Coastal wetlands and marshes offer a richness of flora and
fauna and are home to a variety of birdlife year round. Flamingos
are often seen, as are grebes and water fowl. The sand dunes of
Guardamar with their Aleppo pine trees, and the natural park of
La Mata, comprising of pink tinged salt lagoons, offer a wonderful
contrast of terrain for our walks.
The mountains and pastures of the Sierra de Escalona and the
lunar landscape of the Sierra Aitana are home to a diverse habitat of
Mediterranean pine forests and grasslands, endemic plant species,
and bird life. The picturesque views enhance our walking trails. The
salty desert of Albatera is dramatic with its limestone and sandstone
cliffs, enhanced by salt deposits.
Guardamar del Segura, a relaxed coastal town at the mouth
of the Ria Segura, has a lovely beach, long promenade and plenty
of cafés and restaurants. Wednesday is market day, and transport
operates frequently into Alicante and Elche, making exploring the
old towns easy on a free day.
Christmas is a much quieter time to visit the area and is ideal for those who want to escape the hectic holiday. Our hotel offers a lovely Christmas Eve and Christmas Day meals and our free day will be Christmas Day where we enjoy a morning walk through the town's parks and beach area towards the marina.
