The natural facet of Benidorm is not precisely the most known in the capital of Costa Blanca, but the truth is that in the surroundings of the city and just some metres away from its characteristic skyscraper, we find a varied offer of hiking or Nordic Walking routes in Benidorm.
The combination of sea and mountain offers wonderful landscapes very appreciated by those who practise these sports. Besides, we can make different routes to know the most hidden, and maybe one of the most lovely parts in Benidorm.
Sierra Helada Natural Park, for example, is one of the best places for hiking in this area. It is the first marine and terrestrial park in the Valencian Community and is ideal for making several routes with different levels of difficulty, and for contemplating its coves, flora and fauna. You can choose among different designed routes, with distances from 5,2km to 16km in round trips.
These routes allow you to know some of the greatest charms of Sierra Helada, such as the Albir Lighthouse or Puig Campana, a mountain representing the Benidorm landscape, located in the municipality of Finestrat.
There are also hiking routes going through Sierra Cortina, whose northern part borders on the Finestrat municipality. Sierra Bernia, in Altea is also one of the hiking routes in the surroundings of Benidorm, where we can contemplate lovely views.
All these routes are perfect for hiking and Nordic Walking. The Nordic Walking is a sporting discipline, more and more common in this area, it is a type of hike in which, besides the legs, you exercise the upper part of the body thanks to the specially designed poles used when walking.
