Walking Mallorca (Majorca)

Our Walks

Hike to the summit of Puig Galatzó

This is a rewarding hiking adventure up one of Mallorca’s most distinctive and accessible mountains. Our route is the easiest of the summit approaches and takes us through typical Mallorcan holm oak woodland, stony tracks and paths with rigorous stretches climbing across rough terrain in places. The last stage to the summit is an energetic scramble up steep boulders and well worth the effort.

Castle Ruins and Panoramic Views (2)

This walk is a real favourite. It is the shorter and easier version of Ref. W-NW03 and yet it includes most of the highlights - a visit to the ruins of Alaro Castle, stunning views, and lunch at the very rustic Es Verger "lamb restaurant". It is a linear route, and although the climb up to the Castle is a little steep in places, it is short and very manageable by all. On Sundays it is very popular with local families and even the small children cope with the climb.

GR221 Stage 3B: Deia to Puerto Sóller or Sóller

This linear walk between Deia and the Port of Sóller or the town of Sóller is a delightful, gentle and relatively easy walk. There are a number of variations to the route, and it is just as pleasant a walk whether approached from the Sóller or the Deia end.... and either end is equally attractive for a final refreshing drink. The walk gives us a glimpse of some of the backyard activities of sleepy rural life in Mallorca, as we meander down lanes and tracks across beautiful farmland and is part of Stage 3 of the GR221 or Dry Stone Route.

Coastal hike from the Mirador de ses Barques to Cala Tuent

This is an excellent, and stunning linear coastal walk, and can just as easily be approached from either end - from Sóller or from the small bay of Cala Tuent. A delightful bonus to the walk is that we pass the fine old finca Balitx d'Avall (now a restaurant and hotel), tucked away in a valley lined by terracing with olive trees. Here we can stop, enjoy a freshly squeezed orange juice (from the farm's own produce) and lap up the atmosphere of one of Mallorca's old rural enterprises.

Sóller to Can Prohem Circuit

A lovely classic Mallorcan route, which gives fantastic views of the Sóller valley. It's pretty easy walking along cobbled donkey trails, dirt tracks, country lanes and paths but the initial climb out of Sóller is steep, which is why we've given it a blue boot. We walk through endless olive tree terracing, cross over the single electric train tracks from Palma to Sóller a couple of times, pass tiny homesteads and impressive fincas, and we can enjoy pretty views and the tinkle of sheep bells all the way.
