Guided trip
WHY GO? Mountains, sea and wonderful bliss moments combined with a particularly beautiful, Mediterranean natural backdrop – hiking on Mallorca has a special magic. On our hiking trip along the GR221 hiking trail, you will hike across the sunny Balearic island from Estellencs in the southwest to Port Soller in the North West. Views onto/from the coast you cannot get enough of, the alpine-like Tramuntana mountains, the citrus fruit in the idyllic Sóller-valley & lots more. Coastal villages such as Deià and Valldemossa are also located en route as well as monasteries, extensive country estates, fincas and renowned coastal towns. Fragrant macchia, evergreen and holly oak forests providing shade, inquisitive sheep and mountain goats accompany you along with a lovely sea breeze and the scent of the many lemon and orange groves on this route of dry stone walls. WHAT ARE SOME OF THE HIGHLIGHTS? GR221 Trail (Dry Stone Route): This famous walk runs from south-west all the way to the north-west of Mallorca, following ancient cobbled paths through the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range. On this trail you hike the mountain range parallel to the coast of Mallorca and the trail alternates with sections through forests and barren rocks. Explore Sóller: Soller and its port, Puerto de Soller, is the heart of the "Golden Valley" - a fertile stretch of land in the Serra de Tramuntana whose inhabitants have cultivated olives since ancient times and became wealthy in the 18th century cultivating citrus fruits. In 2011 Soller was granted UNESCO World Heritage status. Explore Port de Sóller: The remote picturesque, small coastal village in north west Mallorca has become well known and popular particularly due to its historic tram, large bay with protected harbour and scenic surroundings. Sóller to Port de Sóller Historic Tramway (Tranvía de Sóller): A major attraction on Mallorca's west coast is the famous historic tram which connects the small town of Sóller with the Port de Sóller district on the Mediterranean coast. It is colloquially referred to as "red lightning". Discovering picturesque towns & villages on the hiking trail: Explore the towns of Estellencs, an oasis of peace, tranquillity and tradition, Banyalbafur nestled between four smaller mountains, with farmhouses and wineries scattered around the historic town centre, Esporles famous for its stone-clad houses and winding streets and lastly the authentic mountain village of Fornalutx nestled high up the Tramuntana mountain range overlooking Sóller that is Often referred to as the ‘Prettiest village in Spain’, the stone buildings and red tiled roofs combine with the scent of the surrounding orange and lemon groves to provide a traditional rustic charm. Here we provide all the information you want to know about making the most of a visit to this traditional Mallorcan village. Explore Palma de Mallorca (time - permitting): The so-called " Pearl of the Mediterranean" is now more beautiful than ever and the Mediterranean flair, which attracts thousands of tourists every year, can be felt in every corner. The 'Sunday Times' even named Palma "the best city to live in" in 2015. Some of the top attractions include La Seu - the local name for Palma Cathedral - and the 14th-century Bellver Castle.
