Spain's Mallorca 7-day Self-guided Walking Tour Level 2
Mallorca is one of the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean, known for its beach resorts and sheltered coves, limestone mountains and Roman and Moorish remains. Capital Palma has 13th-century Santa María cathedral and hosts the annual Copa del Rey regatta. Stone-built villages include Pollença, with its art galleries and summer classical music festival, and hillside Fornalutx, surrounded by citrus plantations on mountain terraces.F
You will be delighted: a week full of hiking along wonderful routes, on lonely trails, in the middle of a marvellous nature. Stylish and cosy Finca-hotels ensure relaxing nights and in their gardens with pools and cosy corners you can really take a break from everyday life. In the evening you enjoy typical Mallorquin cuisine in a comfortable atmosphere. This hiking tour perfectly reflects the multifacetedness of this island in the sun. On the one hand, the sparse north of the island with bewitching views of the coast and turqouise bays. On the other hand, in the harsh „Serra de Traumenta“ you feel like being in the Alps. One of the most beautiful villages, the lovely Orient, will enchant you with its apple, almond and olive orchards as well as with grazing flocks of sheep. You can expect dreamlike panoramic views of the stunning westcoast and the Tramuntana mountains until the end of your journey in the hiking paradise Sóller.
We recommend a good basic fitness for walking days of up to 5 hours. You will walk on good walking paths but on some of the stony sections good walking shoes and sure-footedness will be required. This is a hiking tour with numerous panoramic views of the tops of the Tramuntana mountains, of the seashore, of the sea and the green valleys.
