Spain: Mallorca

Walking in Mallorca

  • Operated by our sister company, Exodus
  • Unearth a traditional and tranquil side of Mallorca 
  • Stay in characterful accommodation including a converted monastery
  • Enjoy coastal panoramas and walks up into the dramatic Tramuntana Mountains
  • Walk through ancient forests and spot birds of prey including falcons, osprey and vultures

Behind Mallorca’s (also known as Majorca) façade lies a tranquil and timeless landscape. Rising abruptly out of the island’s interior are the craggy outcrops of the Tramuntana Mountains (Unesco site since 2011), over which birds of prey can often be seen soaring on the breeze. Following a network of established trails, we trek to some of the highest peaks and enjoy spectacular vistas to the Mediterranean. Elsewhere, we discover picturesque hamlets complete with mediaeval churches, and pass terraced hillsides adorned with sun-kissed citrus trees. In contrast, our coastal walks will reveal sleepy fishing marinas, secret coves and pebble bays.

Day 1: Start Puerto Sóller.

We start at our hotel in Puerto Sóller, arriving in time for a welcome group dinner.

Day 2: Walk to picturesque Deia, stopping for a refreshing dip at Cala Deia en route- Moderate (level 3) & Challenging (level 5) departures

We walk along the coast to the beautiful little bay of Cala Deiá, where (time permitting) we can paddle in the turquoise waters of the bay. From here, we head inland towards one of the most beautiful villages in Mallorca, Deiá, owing to its idyllic setting in the hills. This walk explores the delightful area between the mountains and the sea, using old tracks and paths over the cliffs, and offers fantastic coastal views along the Mediterranean pinewoods and coastal shrubs. We stop for a picnic lunch along the way.

Walk Profile: Distance- 12km/ 8 miles, ascent 400m, descent 250m, 5 hours duration.

Day 3: Tram ride to Sóller; take the 'Pilgrim Steps' from Biniaraitx before ascending Es Cornadors - Moderate (level 3) & Challenging (level 5) departures

We take the tram to Sóller and walk towards the village of Biniaraitx. From here we follow a wonderful cobbled track known as the Pilgrim Steps, which originally went all the way from Sóller to Lluc to connect the monastery with the port. We then diverge onto a small path up to the Mirador den Quesada, the high point of our day at 957m. This Mirador, or look out point, is at the summit of some particularly rocky outcrops known as the 'Cornadors', of which we will have had some stunning views on our ascent. We descend past a mountain hut and through fields and forests of holm oak until eventually our track brings us back to the centre of Sóller, where we usually stop for a drink or a wander around the town before taking the tram back to Puerto Sóller.

Walk Profile: Distance- 16km/ 10 miles, ascent 915m, descent 915m, 6 hours duration.

Day 4: Follow the 19th Century Archduke’s Bridleway from Valldemossa to 'S'Atalaia Vella'; afternoon free - Moderate (level 3) departure

Today's walk starts from the beautiful village of Valldemossa and ends in 'S'Atalaia Vella' (854m), meaning 'viewpoint' in Mallorquin. From here we take in stunning panoramic views of the coast and the Tramuntana Mountains. For part of the walk, we follow the Archduke’s bridleway, an incredibly scenic path built at the end of the 19th Century by the Austrian Archduke Ludwig Salvator. In the afternoon we have some free time to relax in Puerto Sóller.

Walk Profile: Distance- 7km/ 4 miles, ascent 400m, descent 400m, 3 1/2 hours duration.

Day 5: Leave Puerto Sóller along a coastal mule track to Cala Tuent; transfer to Lluc Monastery - Moderate (level 3) departure

After a short drive from the hotel, we start our walk from 'Es mirador de ses Barques.' From here we follow an old mule track away from the coast to Coll de Moncaire and head inland through a hidden and unspoilt little valley to Balitx farm. Next, we climb up to Coll de Biniamar to join the coastal path of Sa Costera, offering spectacular scenery throughout, until we reach the little bay of Cala Tuent where the bus will meet us for the transfer (approx. 1 hour) along the beautiful Sa Calobra road to the Lluc monastery.

Walk Profile: Distance: 14km/ 9 miles, ascent 275m, descent 650m, 5 hours duration.

Day 6: A wonderful circular walk around Muleta de Binifaldo, passing ancient oak forests - Moderate (level 3) departure

Today we enjoy a wonderful circular walk forming an arc around the Monastery of Lluc. The scenery along the route is varied and spectacular, including ancient oak forests, rock formations up to 60m high and views of Mallorca's highest peaks.

Walk Profile: Distance- 10km/ 6 miles, ascent 270m, descent 270m, 4 hours duration.

Day 7: Ascent of Puig d'en Galileu (1181m), one of the island's highest peaks - Moderate (level 3) departure

We finish the trip on a high, setting off to climb Puig d'en Galileu, which at 1,181m is one of the island's highest peaks. The recently restored path to the top is beautiful and offers outstanding views across the dramatic Lluc Valley and the peaks of Tomir and Roig.

Walk Profile: Distance - 9km/ 6 miles, ascent 700m, descent 700m, 5 hours duration.

Day 8: End Lluc.

The tour ends after breakfast.

Travel

Our aim is to provide holidays that are unbeatable for choice and flexibility. We've listed our most popular travel options below, however you aren't limited to these - we can tailor-make virtually any holiday to suit.

Transfers

Airport transfers are included for those on the group flights. Please note that transfers are not included for clients arriving on any other flight, even if Headwater has booked it.

 If you require airport transfers, you may (by prior arrangement only) be able to join the group transfer. Transfers are arranged to coincide with the arrival time of the group flight ‐ please check the group flight details 2 weeks before departure. If you do not take this transfer, or miss it, you must make your own way to the joining point at your own expense.

Private transfers are not available on this trip, however if you are making your own way to Puerto Soller from the airport, the easiest way is to take a taxi from the rank directly outside the airport ‐ the journey should take 30 minutes. The cost of a taxi is likely to be about EUR 60‐70 should you decide to make your way independently.

There are no direct buses or public transport routes from Palma airport to Puerto Soller, but there are various slower indirect options (these may take up to 1.5hrs in total). You can take a local bus from the airport to the main bus station in Palma (Plazade Espanya) for approximately EUR 3, and from there choose between either another bus or the more scenic route by train and tram.

Transportation

Transfers from Palma airport to Soller and from Lluc to Palma airport are by private bus. Other transfers as part of a walk are a combination of private and public buses. The public buses can get busy and occasionally you may have to wait for the next bus but this is not usually a problem. Your luggage will be transported for you from Puerto Soller to Lluc, so you only have to carry a daypack.

Reviews

Here at Headwater we thrive on feedback from our customers. It's the only way we can continue to develop, and where necessary improve, our services and ensure our holidays continue to be the best they can be. As this is a relatively new holiday, we don't yet have any customer reviews available from our customers, but here are the comments that have been received from previous Exodus travellers.

I really enjoyed this walking holiday. My holiday was a grade 5 and I managed it fine in terms of the walking difficulty and length. I did struggle with the heat at times though, as it was very hot in the direct sun. The scenery is fabulous and I enjoyed every walk we completed. The scrambling was a little tricky but perfectly doable and worth the effort to see those views! Vultures and eagles were seen over head and butterflies closer to the ground. It was well organised, the food was plentiful and good quality. Hotel accommodation in Sóller was great, the Monastery looks impressive from the outside but the rooms are quite dark and a bit basic. Overall, I cannot fault this trip.

excellent trip I can't wait to take another

Absolutely stunning walks every day, fabulous food and so much fun!

This was an amazing experience. Our leader Eduard was delightful and friendly. Each day when a picnic lunch was included he went out shopping for typical Mallorcan food, with different cheeses, sausages ey each day. He spread everything out on a tablecloth on a flat area and we helped ourselves...no pre-packed soggy tasteless sarnies for us! There were only 7 of us in the group and we all got on really well, and despite some rainy days when Eduard had to change the plan, we had a wonderful week. And the accommodation was fantastic too! Fabulous week.

Just what I was expecting from previous reviews and one previous visit to Mallorca: wonderful scenery, well planned and interesting walks, good locations. Port de Soller is a pleasant and sedate place with lots of good restaurants. Our hotel was the Eden (instead of the usual Eden North) to accommodate all of us, and it was excellent: large rooms, recently refurbished, and an amazing selection for breakfast. The monastery at Lluc is more like a youth hostel without the self catering, with - at this time of year - mostly walkers and cyclists. There are wo restaurants here, a food shop and pharmacy in addition to the refectory, so there is still plenty of choice.

March proved to be a lovely time to walk in the mountains of Mallorca. Having been on many guided walks this was up there with the best; the group dynamic was supportive and fun, the group leader managed the pacing of the walks to suit the range of walkers, and the variety of the Mallorcan landscape was magical.

Another wonderful Exodus holiday. The walking was superb and the accommodation characterful, with the contrast of the hotel near the seafront of the beautiful coastal town of Puerto Soller and then the stunning converted monastery at Lluc. Highly recommended.

Thoroughly enjoyable, good being based in two centres, each day a different and lovely walk, top quality picnics, very well organised and excellently guided by Eduardo.

A great week of varied walks with a fantastic group, based in two very different but superb locations (Porte de Soller and Lluc Monastery). Very good food at the local restaurants in Puerto de Soller and the restaurant outside the monastery. Eduardo (tour leader) made us such lovely picnics on the walks too!

Just returned from a wonderful week of walking in Mallorca. The views on many of the walks were worth the climbs. Very good food and a great walk leader in Edwardo who has a great passion for the Island of Mallorca.
