Mallorca's highlights

Enjoyable, Bohemian villages, coastal views, oranges & mountains

When you think of the most beautiful parts of Mallorca, what comes to mind? Dreamy mountain villages, such as Valldemossa, paradisiacal coastlines, juicy oranges from Sòller or the fertile Orient Valley? Not to mention the captivating Serra de Tramuntana in the northwest of the island and the hustle and bustle of the capital Palma.

Details about the hiking tour through the highlights of Mallorca

All of the above can be experienced first hand during the hiking trip to Mallorca’s hotspots. Stroll through olive groves to the mountains of Tramuntana. Enjoy the sea air in the bay of Deia – will you dare to jump into the shimmering water? The mountain hike to Cami Costera won’t disappoint with its wonderful views. Continue on one of the beautiful coastal paths to the Torrent de Pareis. At the Pass de L’Ofre you can see the Cuber reservoir and the imposing Puig Major.

Highlights of the Mallorca tour:

  • Capital city of Palma: Mingle with the locals of the stylish island capital and explore charming boutiques, shops and numerous ‘heladerías’ (ice cream parlours).
  • Orient Valley: Orchards and herds of sheep are idyllic! Enjoy the unique atmosphere.
  • Castell d’Alaró: Finca Es Verger invites you to taste delicious Mallorcan specialities at this place of pilgrimage.  

Useful information about the island hike in Mallorca

On the eight-day hiking tour you will experience the paradise island of Mallorca. Since the journey leads both along the coast and through the mountains, you should be accustomed to mountain hiking. Because only then can you enjoy daily tours with a maximum of 16 kilometres to the full. The duration of the hikes is between four and a half and five hours. A special feature of this tour is the walk from Valldemossa to Deia, which offers spectacular views and a deep crashing east coast. For this, sure footedness and a head for heights are needed.

Let’s go – pack your bags and take part in the hiking tour to the highlights of Mallorca!

Ein langersehnter Traum ist wahr geworden :-)
Ausgezeichnete Organisation, persönliche Ansprache..., exzellente Unterkünfte, erstklassiges Essen, Wanderwege so ganz nach meinem Geschmack (alles andere als langweilig), sehr abwechslungsreiche und interessante Routen, bestens vorbereitet, Wege, Unterkünfte und Städte "kuschelig", nicht überlaufen (ganz wichtig !), alles in allem: ein Rund-um-Sorglos-Paket auf feinstem Niveau! Würde ich jeder Zeit wieder machen!! Hat echt Spaß gemacht, auch meinen Teenagern!
