About our Walks and Scrambles in Mallorca

Amazingly, however it is still relatively unknown as a walking destination and you meet few fellow walkers on some of our walks, compared to the crowded hills of the Lake District and North Wales. With over a dozen hills reaching 1000m heights and two over 1300m the NW area of the island from Puerto Pollensa to Soller provides great opportunities for ramblers, hillwalkers and scramblers.

Imagine traversing the high hills, hot sun overhead, far reaching views in every direction. Lightly clad in T-shirt and shorts and carrying a light rucksack with water rations you make your way over these quiet hills.

An early start allows plenty of time for relaxation later in the day. Just about perfect? This is Mallorca, or as one of our clients put it....... Scotland Without the Rain!"

The Walking

The Mountains. We have been running holidays here for many years but never fail to be amazed by the breathtaking scenery and spectacular landscapes. With short (and cheap!) air flights from the UK this has to be one of top walking areas in Europe.

We don't have any set routine for the daily excursions and tend to tailor each day to suit the wishes of the party. If its gentle strolls down quiet country tracks that you wish then we tailor the trips accordingly. It's really up to you.

Should you wish to get a taste of the delights on offer then we recommend the book "Walking in Mallorca" by June Parker and published by Cicerone Press. You could of course, just relax in the warm sun. There are also plenty of opportunities to view some of the spectacular birdlife for which Mallorca is famous. Red Kites, Black Vultures are regularly seen from our villa.

Accommodation

Accommodation in NW Mallorca is on a room-only basis in a comfortable 2 star hotel in Puerto Pollensa or in comfortable apartments. Surrounded by hills the views are fantastic.

Shops, beach, restaurants and supermarkets are nearby and the location provides a great base from which to explore the surrounding mountains.

We can advise on the many good restaurants in the area.

Scrambling in Mallorca

If your interest is in scrambling, rather than hill walking, then we believe that Mallorca has the potential to rival the Isle of Skye, without the midges, mist and rain of course!

There are scrambles of all kinds from those requiring you to sometimes take your hands out of your pockets, to easy rock routes requiring the use of a rope.
