Explore Mallorca’s magnificent Serra de Tramuntana mountains at your own pace from Alcudia to Playa de Palma.
With 300 days of sunshine a year, Mallorca has been popular with regular holidaymakers since the 1960’s. But while many people come to this ‘jewel of the Balearics’ for sun, sea and sand, there’s far more to this fantastic island than just its beaches. Rising precipitously from the Mediterranean, the rugged range of the Serra de Tramuntana runs the length of Mallorca’s north-western coastline and offers great hiking on well signposted trails amongst spectacular scenery. Sheltered coves, pretty villages, traditional hospitality and great, fresh food add to what is definitely a winning combination for anyone looking for a week of walking in the sun. We have put together a great one-week self-guided holiday which will showcase the very best of the island with a choice of walks and a selection of fantastic 3 and 4 star hotels where you can rest and relax after your days’ activities. The accommodation is arranged on a half board basis allowing you to relax in the knowledge that we have arranged everything for you.With the first 2 nights in Alcudia, there’s the chance to hike to a viewpoint for views across to Menorca, to stroll around Alcudia’s atmospheric old town and to discover the pretty town of Pollenca. Then, the focus turns to hiking in the Tramuntana, with 2 nights at the historic and tranquil Lluc Monastery; the perfect location in which to appreciate a simpler way of life. Exploring Mallorca’s mountainous spine, you may even be lucky enough to spot griffon and black vultures as you hike beside Cuber Reservoir. As your week draws to a close you will return to the coast to spend 2 nights in the bustling seaside town of Port de Soller to enjoy coastal hikes and hidden bays, before catching the retro railway to a final evening in the Playa de Palma. Here you can enjoy a guided tour of the islands capital, Palma, relax in one of the many cafes or walk to the beautiful village of Fornalutx.
