From the pier, travel into the Sierra Aitana, a landscape of rugged mountains and isolated valleys near the city of Benidorm in the Costa Blanca. Its peak, rising to an elevation of 5,100 feet, is the highest in the province.

During a hike of about three hours, trek along trails that crisscross this typical Mediterranean topography of shrub-covered hills, dry, grassy terrain and rocky outcroppings. On a clear day, you can see seemingly forever, across the mountainous landscape and out to sea.

After your hike, take a well-deserved refreshment break in the village of Finestrat. Then it will be time to return by motor coach to the pier.
