The University of Alicante, in an effort to promote all sorts of physical activities and sports, has created the mountain sports group for all UA members with an interest in nature and these activities.
The group is intended to promote all forms of mountain sports and organise outings, routes and hikes in middle mountain and high mountain areas.
Besides, it provides a platform for general information on and promotion of mountain sports, based on environmental respect and awareness, with a focus on safety, physical and technical training, and knowledge of the environment and the resources needed.
This is a chance to make everyone discover our geography and our environmental and sociocultural heritage, and also for mountain lovers to enjoy their favourite sports and plant the UA flag on the highest summits.
The environmental and weather conditions in mountain sports are rather special, so you will be informed of all requirements whenever a new activity is scheduled (trails, hikes of more than one day in middle mountain areas, climbing, alpinism, high mountains, canyoning, etc.).
