Walking Mallorca (Majorca)

Our Walks

La Granja - Banyalbufar Excursion

A fantastic day out exploring a small corner of "old" rural Mallorca. The trip includes a guided tour around the charming little finca museum of La Granja followed by a delightful walk (see Ref. W-NW09). This walk takes us through ancient holm oak woods, with fabulous views of the coast and beautifully kept terracing, and a fascinating insight into ancient Moorish agricultural techniques. We stroll around the cliff-side village of Banyalbufar before a mouth-watering lunch served by one of our favourite little restaurants.

Soller Excursion – Art & Villages

So you thought it was just Palma that was rich in Modernist art (see our Palma – Art & Architecture tour) ...? Well Sóller also has its fair share of Modernist gems… On this excursion, with the expert help of our guide Peter, we’ll discover and explore Sóller’s Modernist art collection. We’ll also stroll around the pretty villages surrounding Sóller, and we’ll stop for a typical Mallorquin lunch. After lunch we’ll continue our stroll in the Sóller valley and then return to Sóller town and transport back to Palma.

Alaro Castle Excursion - Moors and Christians

This outing is a great favourite. The walk itself - though steep in a few places - is fairly easy, and it is rewarded by truly spectacular views from the castle at the top. Our tour begins in the tranquil Orient valley, and includes a visit to the ruins of Alaro Castle, and a memorable lunch at the very rustic Es Verger "lamb restaurant". We finish in the village of Alaro.

A loop around the Tossals Verds peak

This is an excellent and nicely varied circular walk around the Tossals Verds peak (at around 1,100 m high, it is the 3rd highest on the island). It is an energetic route, which takes us high into the Tramuntana with far reaching views virtually all the way. There is one potentially tricky moment for those who suffer from vertigo, but we are helped by ropes to ascend the rocky ledge. This fabulous hike includes a couple of steep ascents and a well-located stop at one of the island's beautifully restored refuges. Otherwise, the walk is along delightful paths, many formerly used by the old charcoal burners.

Monastic Wandering from Sant Elm

There are a number of different routes we can take to the ruined Trappist monastery high above Sant Elm, with a number of possible diversions, but this is the most direct approach. Whichever way you go the approach is steep and challenging, but it is well worth the effort. This is a "must-do" walk if you are staying in the South West or just want to explore this lovely part of the island.
