Hikers on the Ofre Pass near Soler with a view of the Cúber Reservoir

Does fragrant olive groves, far-reaching views of the Mediterranean Sea and Empanadas Majorquinas sound to your holiday taste? Then you will definitely be captivated by the well-sign-posted hiking trails through the north of Majorca on the ‘Trans Tramuntana’ hiking trip. Hikers love this quiet side of the largest Balearic island with the wild landscape of grasses and rocks. Part of the hiking holiday leads along inland pilgrimage routes and reveals a Majorca that you may not yet know!

The Serra de Tramuntana in the northwest of the island of Majorca is the way and the destination of the hiking trip at the same time. The mountain range has wonderful hiking paths through original vegetation and intact nature. The special thing about this week are the different hikes – once directly on the coast, once on the mountains inland. Get to know Majorca’s unknown beauty with every new day of hiking!

  • Majorca’s pilgrimage routes: Between Pollença and Lluc you hike on wonderful pilgrimage routes through holm oak forests and orchards. The destination of the pilgrimage routes is the historic Lluc Monastery, where you can even spend a night.
  • By vintage train through the orange groves: You end the hiking week in Majorca with a ride on the vintage train ‘Red Lightning’ from Pt. Sóller to Palma. Included in your hiking holiday!
  • Majorca’s idyllic landscape: Scenic, wonderfully off the beaten track – the Serra de Tramuntana shows a completely new side of the Balearic Island.

Your hiking holiday in the Serra de Tramuntana begins on the Alcúdia peninsula, more precisely in Port de Alcúdia. Your first hike along the coast starts with fantastic views of the sea on the peninsula. Over the next few days, you will get to know the lonely, quiet Majorca a little better each day, until you finally immerse yourself in the lively bustle of the island’s capital in Playa de Palma. The mountain hikes are between ten and 15 kilometres long and require sure-footedness and stamina. The paths are sometimes very rocky.

Would you like to get to know ‘La Luminosa’, the enlightened woman as the Spanish island of Majorca is known, from a new perspective? With Eurohike and the hiking tour ‘Trans Tramuntana’ you have the opportunity!

Itinerary at a glance

On the "Trans Tramuntana" tour, you will get to know the interior of the island, such as the pilgrimage routes between Pollença and Lluc. After an overnight stay in a historic monastery and spectacular stages, lively Palma awaits.

Hotel example: EIX Alcudia

One of the most beautiful paths stretches between the bay of Pollenca and Alcúdia. You follow the coast and climb a stunning rocky peak. On winding paths with incredible panoramic views you cross soft hills back to the historic town Alcúdia and finally to the promenade of Pt. Alcúdia.

Hotel example: EIX Alcudia

Short transfer to Pollenca, where you join the historic pilgrim path to Lluc. With the high summits of the Serra de Tramuntana in full view, you walk up onto the pass past Puig Tomir. Shady stone oak forests, orchards and rough meadows compose a varied scenery. Connoisseurs walk through the botanical garden of the monastery.

Hotel example: Abbaye Lluc

In the morning transfer to Cuber Reservoir where you join a further stage of the pilgrim path to Lluc. You walk high up into the Serra and on passes down to Lluc. An interesting scenery with high grass, rocks and crossings that resemble high alpine territory lies ahead of you. The sunny vistas on the steep rock coast and fertile valleys certainly belong to the most marvellous sights Majorca has to offer. Return to monastery Lluc for another overnight stay.

Hotel example: Abbaye Lluc

You will walk along the Cuber reservoir to the L’Ofre pass where a superb panoramic view of the Serra de Tramuntana peak is waiting for you. You take the winding path up to the Es Cornador peak where you can enjoy the view into the distance across the coast and to Palma. On your way to Sóller you will walk along the well-known panoramic path through the Biniaraix gorge, which is one of nicest landscapes in the Tramuntana mountains. You will reach the lively centre of Sóller by walking alongside beautifully scenting orange plantations. By taking the old tram, you will get to the Port de Sóller.

Hotel example: Marina

Transfer to the artists’ village – Deia. You will start today’s walk from Deia bay and you will head along the wildly romantic rocky coastline towards Sóller. You can expect a diverse route with great views and numerous quiet places to sit back and relax. In a Finca’s flourishing garden, high above the Sóller valley, you can refuel with some freshly squeezed orange juice and a tasty piece of cake before you end your day’s walk by walking along Port de Sóller’s promenade.

Hotel example: Marina

By retro-railway through the valley of oranges into the bustling capital Palma. Stroll through the lively alleyways and to the impressive cathedral before walking along the beach promenade to the Playa de Palma. Alternatively we recommend a walking tour to Fornalutx, into Mallorca’s most beautiful village. You walk along olive groves, almond trees and fragrant orange groves through the green and fertile valley of Sóller.
