A multi-activity guide to outdoor adventure in Spain's Costa Blanca, with 60 routes/activities covering ridge scrambles, via ferrata, canyoning, sport climbing, trad climbing, hiking, trail running and cycling. Many routes require climbing experience, although they vary in difficulty, with options suitable for a range of abilities.

There are few destinations in Europe where you can enjoy typical 'summer' outdoor pursuits in the middle of winter. However, Spain's Costa Blanca is one such place and the range and quality of activities on offer is outstanding. This multi-activity guide presents a handpicked selection of 60 ridge routes, via ferratas, canyons, sport-climbing crags, trad-climbing crags, hikes, trail runs and road-cycling routes to inspire keen adventurers to explore the region's striking ridges, peaks, crags and barrancos (canyons). A broad spectrum of activities is covered - although since many of the routes involve climbing skills and rope-work, the guide is particularly well suited to climbers interested in a multi-activity holiday - and there are plenty of mid-grade options.

Although quieter in winter, Costa Blanca is well served for accommodation and facilities, with easy access from Alicante. The guide includes plenty of useful information to help you plan your holiday and directions to help you locate the start-point for each activity. All of the activities are clearly graded and include route description and mapping and - for the climbing routes and via ferratas - photo topos illustrating the line of the route. Handy tables summarise the key information, making it easy to choose an activity to suit. With inspiring colour photography to whet your appetite, Costa Blanca Mountain Adventures is the perfect companion to discovering the adventures that await in this bounteous region.
