Days1 and 2: We ride from Benlloch to Catí town following mountain and field trails. At the top of the mountain range, we will enjoy wonderful views of the Mediterranean Sea and the surroundings. We ride through very different Mediterranean landscapes, from almond and olive tree fields to wild Mediterranean forest. Good riding skills are required, since we will ride on trails through very rough terrain. Good food and wine are guaranteed!
Day 3: We join the ancient Sant Pere (Saint Peter) pilgrimage, which runs from Catí town to Sant Pere hermitage, close to Castellfort town. We will ride through mountains covered with Mediterranean woods and will follow hidden tough trails. The pilgrimage is 26 km long and 600 m in height difference. We eat a rustic lunch half way. Do not miss the chance of experiencing this unique Spanish tradition! We will also visit beautiful chapels and meet kind and warm people.
