Between Alicante and Valencia is the stunning area of the Marina Alta. Just inland from the coast of Denia and Javea is a mountainous area offering the perfect opportunities for Mountain Bike enthusiasts. From fast sweeping jeep tracks through to un-mapped remote rocky single track and back to back switchbacks, there is an extraordinary experience on offer for the novice right through to the most able riders.
Our guides and hosts Gary and Sarah have lived in the village since 2003. They have unrivalled knowledge of the area and a fantastic relationship with the local community, vital when crossing private land, key to some of the incredible routes they have created. Both hold the most recognised mountain bike guiding/coaching awards - MBLA - and also current British REC (Rescue Emergency Care) certificates. They are attentive to riders' individual needs, making sure your experience is second to none. They are the only British guides to be Spanish certificated, not only in mountain biking, but across a wide range of mountain sports disciplines.
The peaceful village of Castell de Castells is the base and location for our mountain biking. Rugged limestone mountains form a triangle around the village and reach to an altitude of 1,500m and are criss-crossed with ancient Mozarabic trails and dry river beds – superb mountain biking terrain.
On top of the majestic Peña de Castellet, at over 1000 metres, are the remains of the Moorish castle from which the village takes its name. On the lower slopes, olive and almond trees, together with some grapevines, bathe on the sun-drenched terraces, it really is a beautiful setting to take in.
Accommodation in the village is in a beautifully restored rustic house. Rooms are en suite and have twin or double beds. There is a second building for safe bike and equipment storage and workshop facilities. With a comfortable communal area where you can enjoy stories of the day and spacious roof terrace, this is really the perfect place to relax following a day riding.
And don't worry about transfers, included in the package are return transfers for you and your bike between Alicante airport the accommodation.
