The Beceite Mountain Passes hiking route is a 4 day long, medium to high difficulty mountain trek. The itinerary consists in 15 – 18 km stages with a 750 m positive slope and is mainly directed to nature lovers and mountain trekkers.
The Beceite Mountain Passes are a range of mountains that join the Catalan Coastal Range with the Iberian System. The village of Beceite is on the north side of the range and from there we can take four indispensable tours that will show us these mountains in full detail. Four emblematic routes that run through The Parrissal, the Arnes Straits, the Penyagalera-Ulldemó River trail and the Periganyol-La Caixa. Our base camp will be in Beceite, in the Hotel La Fábrica de Solfa.
This route can be guided or self-guided and is mainly directed to sports people and mountain enthusiasts who wish to explore secluded natural environments and live unique experiences.
