Mallorca - Along the GR221

„La Ruta de pedra en sec“, the entire long-distance hiking path.

Mallorca’s mountains make hikers‘ hearts leap for joy, especially if it is all about the long-distance hiking path GR221. It leads across the entire island from the North to the Southeast and combines all highlights which constitute hiking on Mallorca. Views onto/from the coast you cannot get enough of, the alpine-like Tramuntana mountains, inbetween the two reservoirs, where Mallorca’s highest mountain is reflected in the water, or the citrus fruit in the idyllic Sóller-valley, where you can smell spring already from a distance. Coastal villages such as Deià and Valldemossa are also located en route as well as monasteries, extensive country estates, fincas and renowned coastal towns such as Pt. Andratx. Fragrant macchia, evergreen and holly oak forests providing shade, inquisitive sheep and mountain goats accompany you along the route of the dry-stone walls, which are definitely going to fascinate you.

Details about the hiking holiday Mallorca - Along the GR221

Mountains, sea and wonderful bliss moments combined with a particularly beautiful, Mediterranean natural backdrop – hiking on Mallorca has a special magic. On our hiking holiday along the GR221 long-distance hiking trail, you will hike across the sunny Balearic island from Pt. Alcúdia in the North to Pt. Andratx in the Southwest. The lovely sea breeze and the scent of the many lemon and orange groves accompany you on this route of dry stone walls. A special highlight is the overnight stay in Lluc monastery and the Refugi Tossal Verds.

Highlights of the hiking holiday along the GR221

  • En route in the Tramuntana Mountains: the Tramuntana Mountains, also known as the Serra de Tramuntana, are a mountain range in the Northwest of the Mediterranean island of Mallorca and are also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This area is well developed with hiking trails, but has been spared from large crowds of tourists to this day. The perfect place for a quiet break in nature.
  • Tapas with a view: On day 5 of your holiday, the route leads from Pt. Sóller to Valldemossa. Be sure to try the local tapas at the traditional tavern right in Deia Bay. A perfect energizer for the remaining part of the tour of this day.
  • Fast as lightning: After you have experienced the amazing queen’s stage from the Refugi Tossal Verds to Sóller on day 4 of the hiking holiday, a final highlight awaits you: a ride on the old tram to the coastal town of Pt. Sóller.
