Costa Blanca Mountain Walkers

The CBMW is a group of people who get together twice a week to enjoy walking in the mountains of the Costa Blanca region of Spain.  Walkers who act as leaders are not formally trained or registered and take no responsibility for their companions You walk at your own risk.  Whilst every effort is made to ensure accuracy, the time stated for each walk will always depend on the fitness and ability of the walkers and also the conditions on the day of the walk.
Anyone is welcome to come along.
We are not a registered/affiliated club and therefore have no membership, subscriptions or rules. We do however ask everyone who walks with us to make an annual voluntary contribution towards the cost of our websites.  This year’s contribution (2015/16) is 2 Euros per person.  A key ring with our logo will be given to those that contribute by way of both a receipt and a thank you.  These can be attached to your rucksack should you wish.
We do however a short list of Conventions which act as guidelines and hopefully are an aid to walkers and leaders alike. Everyone is required to read our Conventions as a condition for walking with us and for downloading each season’s programme.

Remember to check Stop Press on this page each week for any last minute changes to the programme
