Health, Fitness, Safety & Insurance


All persons participating in a Mallorca Hiking walk (whether on holiday with us or participating in a day-walk) are accepted on the understanding that they are normally in good health and able to fulfill the physical demands of their chosen walk. If this is in doubt, the booking must be accompanied by a doctor's certificate stating that it is entirely safe for you to participate in the particular activity that you have chosen.

You must also inform us at the time of booking and before the start of any walk or activity of any allergies, dietary requirements and medical conditions that we may need to know in order to provide you with the appropriate advice and meal arrangements.


We take your safety seriously and we take all steps reasonably to be expected of a provider of walking tours. However, when you embark on our walks you do so at your own risk.

The information that we provide in relation to particular walks, routes or ascents is based on certain assumptions, such as average fitness and ability. The information has not necessarily been catered specifically for your personal circumstances. It is therefore your responsibility to consider such factors as your physical fitness and any equipment that you might want to carry, particularly where you embark on a self-guided walk. We cannot be responsible for loss, personal injury or death arising from any of the walks, except where death or personal injury arises from our negligence.

We reserve the right to ask you to sign a Disclaimer Form before the start of any activity contracted through Mallorca Hiking to confirm you are aware of, and have accepted these terms and conditions. Refusing to sign the disclaimer gives Mallorca Hiking the full rights to refuse participants to participate in the scheduled activity without receiving any refund.


In the interest of safety, you must follow the advice provided by us or anyone on our behalf, comply with the local codes of conduct, follow the Spanish Country Code, and act sensibly and prudently at all times.

Some of our full-day guided walks represent a significant physical challenge, on difficult terrain with steep ascents or descents. We reserve the right to exercise our judgment as to whether an individual is suitable to join a particular walk, and if necessary, to decline their participation if it is considered to be for their own safety and that of other participants. The guide’s decision and advice must be heeded. No responsibility can be taken for an individual failing to act upon advice given.

A full recommended kit list is included on our website, and we reserve the right to refuse the participation of any walker who is, in the opinion of the guide, inadequately equipped.


Full responsibility for the safety and welfare of all children must be taken by a responsible accompanying adult at all times.


It is essential that all walkers are adequately insured against the usual sort of personal and medical risks involved with walking to a maximum altitude of 2000 meters. We will not be liable for losses caused by circumstances beyond our control, nor for loss or damage to personal effects, unless caused by our negligence.

Although we will, of course, take all reasonable precautions to avoid accidents, you should be aware that hiking, like all outdoor activities, does involve some degree of personal risk. We can take no responsibility for injury to any person whilst taking part in one of our walks, unless arising from our negligence. Although our walks are not designed for the extreme walker, some degree of physical fitness is required.
