The Costa Blanca is known as a summer tourist region on the Mediterranean Sea. Everyone appreciates the always beautiful weather, the warm sea and the long beaches. But the landscape of the Costa Blanca is much more varied than just sandy beaches and shallow sloping coasts. A prime example is the Sierra de Bernia !
Sierra de Bernia – alpine style
Spain is the country with second most mountains in Europe and also on the Costa Blanca itself mountains raise just a few kilometers behind the coastal areas – the Sierra de Bernia.
1,126 meter height is the most prominent mountain in the outback of Calpe – the Sierra de Bernia. Does not sound very high at first, but when you are standing on sea level, you will spend some respect to this massive mountain.
2 hours to 2 days
Around the Sierra de Bernia, there are various hiking tours. From the cozy two-hour tour on the ground of the mountain to full-day routes to the Bernia-summit or the Bernia-ridge you find everything. Even for climbers there are some adventure routes with serious, alpine character.
What’s all tours in common, are the breathtaking views of the coast and the outback of the Costa Blanca and the experience to see a completely different, calmer Spain.
