The year round sun ensures that climbing is available all year round and the scale and range of the routes ensure that their is something for everyone from beginner to intermediate to expert. The Coast is also so close to Splash Finca Panoramica that you can climb in the mountains in the morning and on the coastal cliffs in the afternoon. We can arrange climbing courses for individuals or groups or arrange for one of the many local guides to take you on some of the more challenging routes if you already have experience. Experienced climbers can just use the Finca as a base and head of on their own.

Canyoning Tours and Holidays

Canyoning is an adventure sport that is a passion of those of us at Splash

We were are the forefront of introducing the sport into Scotland and the UK and we now take more people canyoning in the UK than anyone else. We also canyon year round in Morocco. To date we have taken nearly 10000 people canyoning in a safe and fun manner.

Canyoning is a activity that inspires and delivers every time. The region around our mountain Finca base is home to six  great canyons  with the added advantage that the great weather which ensures the canyons are not like some of the ones we work in back home in Scotland!

Canyoning in this area of Spain is also a year round activity. However, although the sun does shine here over 300 days a year when it rains it can rain exceedingly heavy and flash floods are common at these times. You do not want to be in a canyon during these periods. Please ensure you go with experienced canyon guides. This is not a adventure activity that should be tried out on your own!

 


The list below are canyons that we most commonly use, as time allows we will publish comprehensive guides for each.

1. Barranco del Infierno ( this is a 5-6 hour trip based on 6 people involving 12 abseils and several smaller free climbs/Jumps)

2. Barranc del Sant ( this is a 3-4 hour trip base on 4 people with 9 abseils involved)

3. Barranco de Melo ( this canyon starts at the bottom of Barranco del Sant above, it can be very wet at spring and autumn several short pitches and a 3-4 hour trip for 6 people)

3. Barranc de l’Estret de Penyes ( our local canyon 3 abseils and normally wet all year so fun in the pools. This is a half day trip for groups. Much faster for small numbers)

4.Barranco de Soler ( 3-4hrs with some long abseils)

5. Barranco de les Raboses ( 1-2 hrs a great fun canyon for groups. A few shorty abseils)

6. Barranco de Relleu ( 4 hours plus deep canyon just one abseil but this canyon has no escape route!)

 

We run canyoning day tours as well as canyoning weekend breaks and also a full week canyoning holiday.

On all our canyoning trips helmets are compulsory at all times on the journey when in the canyon. Buoyancy aids and wetsuits will be worn under our discretion depending on the canyon and weather.  We may test suitability of people for abseiling prior to entering a canyon.
 For those of limited or no canyoning experience we will probably use a lowering system rather than abseiling.

Costs

A day of canyoning is £50 per person of £75 per person for fit individuals who want to do two canyons.

A canyoning 3 day break is £300 per person full board ( maximum of 12 people)

A canyoning full week holiday is £725 per person full board. ( maximum of 12 people only suitable for those who are fit and healthy as the days can be long. Good head for heights essential. We also include a via ferrata trip in this week.

Hiking & Hill Walking Days & Holidays

The surrounding mountains and countryside around Splash Finca Panoramica offer some of the best hill walking and hiking in Europe!

From your balcony you will glimpse upon the majestic Sierra de Bernia mountains (covering the municipalities of AlteaBenissaCalpeCallosa d’En Sarriá and Jalón) which rise to 1,130 metres (3,704 ft) at their highest and separate the Alicante regions of Marina Alta and Marina Baja along the Calpe, Benissa and Altea border.

This formidable natural barrier – which features the Font del Garroferet and an ancient fortress – is one of Spain’s many mountain ranges and is crossed by tunnels that carry the N332 national road, the A7 motorway and the railway. It was one of the most technically difficult stretches of construction on Spain’s Autopista del Mediterraneo.

Sierra Bernia


The southern side of the Bernia range overlooks beautiful Altea Bay, making a gentle arc with the old hilltop town of Altea at its centre and curving around to its far end at Albir and the Sierra Helada. The attractive palm lined promenade of Altea is being extended along to Albir village and the Puerto Deportivo Luis Campomanes is current being enlarged to accommodate the strong demand for berths. Alternative harbours are the Calpe Club Nautico under the Peñon de Ifach, and Moraira Club Nautico The mountainous backdrop to all the resorts along the Costa Blanca are one of its most spectacular and beautiful features – just a short drive away!
