About Us

Mallorca Hiking has been organising private guided walks and walking holidays in Mallorca for over 13 years now. The business was originally set up by David Denham, later on developed by Fiona McLean and eventually (in 2014) taken over and nowadays still owned and run by Nina Harjula. Mallorca Hiking continues to focus on what we believe we do best; to offer quality experiences in the nature of Mallorca. We keep on introducing new ideas, concepts routes and including new members of our team in order to keep on improving our customers outings with us.

We are a team of professional multilingual guides and between us, we speak English, Swedish, German, Spanish, Catalan and Finish but you are also welcome to ask us about guided hikes in Dutch or French. 

We believe that a truly fabulous holiday is the sum of its parts - the walks, your guide, where you stay, where and what you eat and even the view when you stop for your picnic.... and we do our very best to make each of these parts exceptional!

We are proud of being able to offer:

  • Skilled professional guides that are full-time residents of the island with local knowledge, contacts and experience
  • A company policy based on "Safety first" by always respecting the ratios of guides per number of participants, taking into account the weather forecast, traffic arrangements etc
  • Our guides take a very personal interest in our clients and what sort of holiday they want
  • Our aim is to offer exclusive quality experiences for our clients of all ages and nationalities

Elke - Hiking guide

I was born in Austria and as a child I found my passion for hiking and being in nature in general. Mallorca fascinates me and I love taking my clients not only on the right path but also enriching the experience with very diverse information, from history to fauna and flora, through personal experiences and customs and traditions. See you soon!

Maria - Yoga teacher

For those of you who don't know me (yet), I am Mia (or Maria) and a passionate yoga teacher since 2010. Having earlier studied and practised Ashtanga, Hatha flow and Anusara, I am now inspired by the Bowspring, which is a system of healthy alignment for body-mind-heart, and invites to a mindful practice. With its roots in Hatha yoga and Tantra, Bowspring is based on more recent research on anatomy, and aims to guide us towards a more dynamic and open posture. Bowspring works with a systematic and balanced activation of our whole body, integration and expansion of the heart centre, honouring the natural curves in our spine. It is a practice for everyone; beginners, experienced yoga practitioners, younger, elder, injured.... Yoga and Bowspring invite us to experience our being in new ways, and to open up a dialogue between the inside and the outside, between body, mind and heart.
