Easy

This walk is a really nice morning or afternoon loop out of Fornalutx and up to the Mirador de ses Barques from which you get spectacular views of the whole of the Sóller valley to the sea beyond. The paths we take on this route are mostly through tranquil olive groves where only the tinkling of sheep bells and the chirping of birds accompany us. We start off with a steep climb out of the pretty village of Fornalutx to the Mirador, but from then on it's just a gentle and relaxing stroll along narrow stoney paths.

We start in the centre of Fornalutx and take a steep stony path out of the village and up to the Mirador, crossing the windy mountain road to Lluc a couple of times before we reach our goal. Once we've admired the view from the Mirador, we set off along a stony path that follows the contour of the hill, and then gently descend on the Cami Vell de Balitx through olive terraces, and getting glimpses of the sea along the way. We then head east and follow a pretty path back towards Fornalutx.

Highlights

Fantastic views from the Mirador and moments of sheer tranquility!
