Hiking in Mallorca
Hiking in Mallorca
We are currently entering in the prime season for hiking in Mallorca, so we want our guests and visitors to have a great time enjoying nature and finding the best way to exercise during vacation.
Here are some tips and tricks to follow to find the best plan for hiking:
- Na Foradada. Na Foradada is one of the most famous landmarks of the island, located at the entrance of the village of Deià. You can easily find a spot to park near Son Marroig, an ancient palace located seafront and facing the rock of Na Foradada. It is a comfortable hike suitable even for children as the way that goes down to the big rock is pretty flat. Once you reach the top of the rock, you can have lunch in one of the two restaurants located there.
- Castell d’Alaró. It is one of the of the most beautiful places in the island and often visited by locals in the weekends, it usually takes an hour to reach the top of an ancient castle located in the forest. The way is easy and comfortable, so children at all ages can enjoy this hike.
- Sóller-Deià. The ancient road that connects the villages of Sóller and Deià offers a nice hike that isn’t specially hard, but that takes more than four hours to complete. You can as well do the hike in the opposite way, Deià-Sóller, but if you start in Sóller you will end it looking at the sea. Among the way the views and landscape go changing from rural to coastal, all of it with the mountains of Tramontana range in the background.
- La Trapa. This popular hike starts on the small and picturesque coastal village of Sant Elm and goes around a small hill from where to admire stunning views over the small island of Sa Dragonera. La Trapa is an ancient possessió, an old majorcan cottage located by the sea. We highly recommend this hike as it has unique views over the southern coast of Mallorca.
- Torrent de Pareis. The most legendary excursion to do in Mallorca due to its extreme beauty, Torrent de Pareis is a small river that ends in the sea that has recently been certified as a natural monument of the Balearic Islands. It requires certain knowledge on climbing and a good physical condition. The most suitable time of the year to do this hike is from May to October. We recommend you to ask on specific advice if you plan to do this hike as accidents occur too often in this area.
- Ermita d’Esporles. Within a few minutes on foot from the centre of the village of Esporles we find the beginning of the way up to the Ermita, and isolated small church from where to admire the whole village and valley. If you go by car, you will have to park it in Esporles and walk to the entrance for one hour approximately until the top.
- Lluc abbey. This ancient construction is a pilgrimage place for majorcans from all over the island. Apart from visiting the abbey, there is plenty of nature around this area that allows you to walk in the nature without much effort.
If you are keen on hiking is because you probably appreciate nature, peace and fresh air in a special way. We want to give you what you seek while spending your time in Mallorca, so our Adventure Villas Collection is made for you.
