Guided Walks to the Peñón de Ifach

Guided Walks to the Peñon d'Ifach | Activities in Calpe, Costa Blanca, Spain

Guided Walks to the Pe
ñon d'Ifach in Calpe - 1 January - 31 December

Hike the Rock: Peñon d'Ifach Natural Park, Calpe

Rising 322 metres above the Mediterranean sea, and with incredible views of the surrounding area Peñon d'Ifach - also known as Calpe Rock - is one of the most famous sights along the Costa Blanca coastline and is also a protected Natural Park.

In older times the rock was used as a watchtower - it was an excellent vantage point to spot attacks from Berber pirates and to warn the surrounding community. Today the Peñon d'Ifach is a peaceful refuge for many plant and bird species and a popular destination for tourists & visitors to Calpe.

Coast Mountain Kayak offer a guided excursion which takes you along the walking trail which takes you all the way to the summit by way of a tunnel constructed in 1918 to make the climb easier. The walking is reasonably easy on the lower slopes, but it becomes more tricky beyond the tunnel.

The climb to the summit of Pe
ñon d'Ifach is worth the effort as it offers spectacular views of the surrounding coastline, and inland to the mountains in the area. It is popular with bird lovers who come to see some rare bird species including Audouin's gull, Eleanora's falcon and the peregrine falcon. Nature lovers can also enjoy the many species of wild flower including one rare orchid species found only on Peñon D'Ifach.

The price of the excursion is €15.00
