You will be delighted by a week full of hiking along wonderful routes, on lonely trails, in the middle of a marvellous nature. Stylish and cosy Finca-hotels ensure relaxing nights and in their gardens with pools and cosy corners you can really take a break from everyday life. In the evening you enjoy typical Mallorquin cuisine in a comfortable atmosphere. This hiking tour perfectly reflects the multifacetedness of this island in the sun. On the one hand, the sparse north of the island with bewitching views of the coast and turqouise bays. On the other hand, in the harsh „Serra de Traumenta“ you feel like being in the Alps. One of the most beautiful villages, the lovely Orient, will enchant you with its apple, almond and olive orchards as well as with grazing flocks of sheep. You can expect dreamlike panoramic views of the stunning west coast and the Tramuntana mountains, right until the end of your journey in the hiking paradise Sóller.
DAY TO DAY ITINERARY

One of the hiking classics of Mallorca, the peninsula La Victòria, is situated between the bay of Pollença and Alcúdia. The route leads along the coastline and up to a wonderful top of a cliff. A switchback with lots of endless panoramic views, and the possibility to go swimming in the turquoise bay „Boll Baix“, leads you over smooth tops back to Alcúdia. Walking time: approx. 5 hrs.
