    Can I make my own way to Castell de Castells?

    The start hotel is approximately an hour and a half drive from Alicante airport and, as such, can be difficult to get to by yourself. A private transfer can be prebooked and will cost approximately 140 Euros.  Alternatively you should be able to get a taxi from the airport for around 100 Euros. Please contact Exodus for further details. Stefania Aniello - Customer Operations

    How difficult will the walking be in the Sierra de Aitana?

    The routes vary in length from about 7 to 8½ hours walking per day (including rest breaks, photo stops and a picnic lunch) and we cover in the region of 17-22km on each walk. In 5 days of walking we climb four summits; Serrella (1,361m), Aixortá (1,160m), Aitana (1,558m) and Puig Campana (1,410m) with approx 1,000m of ascent on each of these days.

    The trip itself is classified as moderate to challenging grade (activity level 4) taking into account the pace, duration and distance of the walks as well as the amounts of ascent/descent and the terrain under foot. You should have some prior experience of walking and be used to regular exercise.

    The majority of the paths we follow are footpaths and mule tracks with a gentle to moderate gradient, though there are also some sustained ascents/descents and some rocky sections and scree slopes. The ascent of Puig Campana is the toughest walk of the week but is entirely optional.

    You need only carry your daypack with clothing layers, waterproof, water, snacks, camera etc. Walking poles are strongly recommended.

    Can I make my own way to the start hotel in Benimantell?

    The start hotel is located in the village of Benimantell which is approximately an hour and a quarter drive from Alicante airport, depending on traffic. As such, it can be difficult to get to by yourself and we encourage you to join the group transfer if possible. Private arrival transfers from Alicante Airport to Benimantell (and/or departure transfers from the end hotel in Sella) can be pre-booked through Exodus. A private arrival transfer will cost approximately £85 and a private departure transfer approximately £70 (prices are per vehicle for 1-4 persons). Alternatively you should be able to get a taxi from the airport to Benimantell for around 135 Euros. Please contact Exodus for further details. Jennifer Cox - Product Executive

    What is the standard of accommodation like on TSA?

    We spend 3 nights in El Trestellador pension in Benimentell and four nights in Casa Roc guesthouse in Sella (except on reverse departures where we spend 4 nights in Benimantell and 3 nights in Sella). Both accommodations are of a good standard and within walking distance of the village amenities. El Trestellador is a clean and simple family owned pension with a lovely garden and terrace, offering views down the Guadalest Valley. Bed linen and towels are provided and all rooms have en suite bathrooms with a bath and/or shower. Most (if not all) rooms have a window, a TV, air-conditioning/heating, and a hair-dryer. The pension has its own restaurant which is locally renowned for its excellent traditional cuisine; specialities include oven-cooked rice, espencat vegetables and gazpacho manchego. Casa Roc is a charming guesthouse perched a thousand feet up on the slopes beneath Aitana Peak in Sella. The 9 rooms here are split between 4 houses and share 4 bathrooms (however for smaller groups we may not use all of the houses). The homely character of this place and the hospitality of the couple who run it is certain to outweigh any disadvantage of sharing services. There are also communal kitchens, terraces, and lounge areas to relax in during the evenings. There's free tea and coffee, an honesty wine/beer fridge, and maps and leaflets available for your free day too. You will not go hungry here – delicious dinners are all home cooked by your hosts, freshly prepared in an open kitchen. Single rooms can be pre-booked for a supplement, however please note that these are limited and are available on a first come first served basis. Please ask your Sales Consultant for further details.

    Is it safe to drink the tap water on TSA?

    Yes, the tap water is perfectly safe to drink throughout the trip and in both of the accommodations. During the walks you will also be able to refill your water bottles from streams and drinking fountains along the routes - your leader will adivise how much water you should carry during the walks and where the next chance to refill your bottles will be.

    How do I compare trips for my next adventure?

    To compare trips for consideration, you can add them to your 'Shortlist'.

    During your search for your next adventure you can save 'holidays' to your Shortlist and compare trips. For this to work correctly, you must be signed in during your 'user session'; i.e. during your time on the Exodus website. These will then be saved in your account (don't have an Exodus website account?  Sign up now!).

    The Shortlist menu item (top of every page) only appears when holidays are added. Adding holidays can be done by clicking on the 'Add to shortlist' with the 'Heart' symbol on any 'Holiday' page above the 'At a Glance' section, or in the 'holiday' panels within Search Results pages, or in the 'You might also like...' section at the foot of the trip page viewed. The selected holidays will be saved into your account for consideration and can be removed there, as well as from the 'compare trips' page from the menu link located at the top of every page.
