Join us on this delightful weeks walking in Spain on the Island of Mallorca. A trip full of hiking in Majorca along wonderful routes, on lonely trails and in the middle of a marvellous natural landscape. Stylish and cosy Finca-hotels ensure relaxing nights and in their gardens with pools and cosy corners you can really take a break from everyday life. In the evening you enjoy typical Mallorquin cuisine in a comfortable atmosphere.
This hiking tour in Mallorca perfectly reflects the multifacetedness of this island in the sun. On the one hand, the sparse north of the island with bewitching views of the coast and turquoise bays. On the other hand, in the harsh, Serra de Tramuntana you feel like you are in the Alps. One of the most beautiful villages, the lovely Orient, will enchant you with its apple, almond and olive orchards as well as with the grazing flocks of sheep. You can expect dreamlike panoramic views of the stunning west coast and the Tramuntana Mountains until the end of your journey in the hiking paradise, Sóller.
You will walk along good walking paths, but some sections will be stony so good walking boots are a must.

One of the hiking classics of Mallorca, the peninsula La Victòria, is situated between the bay of Pollença and Alcúdia. The route leads you along the coastline and up to a wonderful top of a cliff. A switchback with lots of endless panoramic views over both land and sea. The possibility to go swimming in the turquoise bay “Boll Baix“, leads you over smooth tops back to Alcúdia.
Today starts with a short transfer to the Cuber Reservoir. You are presented with a scenic landscape with tall grass, marked rocks and stony paths. On your way through the impressive “Serra de Tramuntana” you can enjoy the view over sunny cliff coasts and fertile valleys. You go past the manor “Coma Sema”, once one of the biggest olive farms on the island until you reach the magic Orient-valley.
The route today allows you to explore the Orient-valley, known locally as the orchard of Mallorca. The Acropolis hill is seen from afar on your way over the “Coll d`Orient”. Through holly oak forests and with stunning views of the surrounding scenery, you walk towards the Castell d`Alaro, a pilgrimage site with a hermitage. On your way back you really should try one of the specialities from the Finca Es Verger, a well-known local restaurant.
On lonely trails, you leave Orient heading towards an alpine region with a long-drawn-out rock ledge of the northwest face of the island. On the route towards Bunyola, you are going to discover one of the tops of the mountain, Penyals d`Honor, on foot. Once you arrive at the top, you can enjoy the panoramic views of the island lowlands and the bay of Palma. From Bunyola, you take the old tram “Roter Blitz” to Sóller.
Today starts with a transfer to the bohemian town Deia, the jewel of the west coast. You start your walk in the bay of Deia along the rocky coast and up to the romantic mailing route to Sóller. The backdrop, with its impressive coastal scenery, will fascinate you. The sightseeing tour of an old oil mill, a freshly squeezed orange juice and the trail through numerous olive orchards will round off your day.
