Discover the Vías Verdes
Vías Verdes (literally, “green-ways”) are one of the best kept outdoor secrets in the region. Discover the Vías Verdes at the Costa Blanca and travel off the beaten track.
Basically the Vías Verdes are old disused railway lines. They have been recovered and restaured for use by walkers and cyclists. It is a different, enjoyable and environmentally friendly way of getting to know Spain. The combination of sports, culture and nature makes it a perfect activity to do with families. Vías Verdes are accessible for all ages and with a basic level condition.
Where to found the Vías Verdes?
Vías Verdes are across whole Spain. Some of them are pretty close by our stays and worth a (day)trip. For example, in Dénia, Alcoi or Torrevieja there are Vías Verdes up to 10 km. Inland of Alicante is the beautiful Vía Verde of Maigmó. With 22 kilometres worth a trip and certainly an active work-out. Lunch halfway at the restaurant La Cierva with traditional food.
The Vía Verde at Dénia is a recommendable trip for families. An easy track manders through flowering orange fields, parallel at the sea. Above all the route is accessible for wheelchairs and kids, which makes it a real family trip. Start or close off the trip with a visit to Dénia Castle or a jump in the sea.
