Moraira Mountain Biking

The diversity of the Moraira countryside provides endless possibilities for some superb guided cross-country mountain bike trips. The choice of terrain includes remote high mountain country with rocky tracks, lush green river valleys, tracks through ancient Mediterranean forests and coastal routes.
We have a wide range of private guided mountain bike tours, designed to cater for all abilities and tastes. The emphasis is placed firmly on enjoyment and safety rather than on ´competition´ and risk. That is to say that we fully understand that the needs and concerns of a novice or indeed a family with older children will be very different from those of an experienced off-road rider. If a challenging and technical ride is required, that can be provided. If a gentle introduction to off-road riding is required, that can also be arranged. Both extremes are just as welcome and are catered for accordingly and effectively.

Before selecting a guided tour, we would firstly ensure that the needs and ability of the individual or group is established. We do that by listening to you and by using our local knowledge to provide a memorable and enjoyable tour.

We also have childrens´mountain bikes available for hire and our guided routes can be adapted to suit accordingly. As indicated, the safety of our clients is our key priority. This is why we are professionally qualified in mountain bike leadership and is also why we apply a maximum group size 8 people for our guided tours. Packed lunches are available on request.

For novice riders / families / children

We have a selection of routes that take in superb rural scenery and visit some traditional Alicante Mountain Biking villages. Terrain is usually on very quiet country lanes or level unsurfaced tracks. The trips are conducted at a comfortable and unhurried pace, and can be adapted to meet any specific needs. For example, for older children, we can incorporate some basic map reading instruction. Packed lunches can be provided upon request, or if preferred, we can stop at a bar or restaurant for lunch.

For more experienced riders

We have a selection of routes that are mainly on rocky trails or forest tracks. Distances vary from 30km to 60km. Most routes pass through at least one village where refreshments are available.

For more demanding riders

We have a number of routes that are predominantly off-road and take in high mountain terrain, often in quite remote country. Tracks are usually rocky and the routes involve a considerable amount of ascent and descent. Distances vary from approx. 40km to 70km.

Something a little different

We offer trips that combine a full day of mountain biking with a visit to the beautiful and historic town of Xativa. The mountain biking route can be varied and adapted to suit all abilities, whilst the visit to the town can include a stroll through the historic quarter or even a visit to the castle.

Moraira is a beautiful coastal town on the northern Costa Blanca and, like many others, started life as a small fishing village. However, tourism and the construction of high-specification homes for migrating northern Europeans have contributed to Moraira becoming a cosmopolitan and fashionable destination for holidaymakers and permanent residents alike. Normally with a population of around 10,000 people, this rises to more than three times that figure during the holiday season.

Traces of the original fishing village are still visible, and indeed the town is still home to one of the most popular fish markets on the Costa Blanca. However, the main focus of boating now centres around the attractive marina, which was opened in 1985 and is another reason so many visitors flock to the area – that and the many fine restaurants that are also to be found here.

Moraira was historically the port outlet for the inland towns of the beautiful Jalon valley, principally Teulada, Benissa, Lliber, Jalón and Alcalali. This whole region is now a major centre not only for mainstream summer tourism based on sunshine, beaches and restaurants, but also for activity holidays in the cooler months of the year – principally mountain biking and especially rock climbing. There are a large number of crags in the area offering opportunities for people of all levels of competence to enjoy a challenging climb, and the district is one of the main destinations on the Costa Blanca for enthusiasts of the sport. There are also four golf clubs within a 30 minute drive of Moraira, as well as a sports centre where there are tennis courts, a swimming pool and basketball and handball pitches. Horse riding can also be arranged in Denia and at nearby Lliber.

Moraira is also a good centre for exploring other towns around the Costa Blanca, and of course Benidorm is never far away, with its huge choice of entertainment options including some of the largest theme parks in the country. The old town of Guadalest with its historic castle and lovely blue reservoir is a great day out, as are other towns in the region such as Gata de Gorgos (famous for its basket-weaving) and Javea with its fishing port.

There is plenty of accommodation in the Moraira area, with many local villa owners renting out their properties for the summer season to foreign visitors. Due to the planning restrictions that prevented high-rise building taking place and spoiling the character of the town, there are few hotels of the type normally associated with the Costa Blanca – which in fact adds to the character and charm of the resort. So whatever your reason for visiting this lovely part of the coast, there is a wealth of activities from mountain biking, or rock climbing or great quality mountain walking – or even just relaxing and enjoying the beautiful weather – to suit every member of the family …. and it truly is a beautiful place to appreciate some of the most stunning scenery anywhere in the country.
