Walk towards the sun - with video
It is probably the interplay between the mountains and sea, between rugged rocky landscapes and glittering waves that make hiking tours in Mallorca so unique. Look out over the deep blue sea from the top of majestic peaks, hike along the coast and dip your toes into the cool blue sea. After an exhausting but beautiful hiking tour, rest your tired feet and enjoy olives, tasty Jamón Ibèrico and a class of full-bodied red wine in a small bodega, while somewhere a Spanish melody is plucked on a guitar. As your companion on hiking tours, we bring you the sun. We hope that’s ok with you?

Mallorca‘s West Coast with Charm
The west of Mallorca is one of our favourite hiking destinations on the beautiful sunny island. The west coast is shaped by the Serra de Tramuntana and is home to the highest mountains in Mallorca, including highest, Puig Major. But what makes the west coast of Mallorca so special? It is probably the unspoilt coastline, the dreamy fishing villages and the dreamy fishing villages that draw us hikers west. Places like Pollenca, Lluc Monastery – the largest pilgrimage site in Mallorca, Valldemossa and Soller await your visit after an eventful day of hiking. On our hiking holiday Mallorca‘s West Coast with Charm, 7 days, you will get to know the authentic Mallorca away from the tourist hotspots.
