Holiday Information Overview


This week’s walking presents you with the “best of Mallorca “every day. Each day, you will follow a new, dreamlike path with wonderfully diverse scenery as far as the eye can see and of course, you will see lots of typical Mallorcan villages. In fact, you will go from one highlight to the next!

You will be thrilled by how diverse this island really is. Right from the start you will visit lovely places, the mountain village Valldemossa is a particularly lovely place, which has attracted lots of celebrities.

The rugged west coast is fascinating and has many panoramic tours to offer with coastal views and unique scenery. Sóller, the capital of the oranges and a jewel of the island is well-known for its culinary delights. The Orient valley also has ample culinary delights for you to discover after you have hiked through the sparse Serra de Tramuntana mountain landscape.

At the end, you can look forward to arriving in the capital city, Palma, which is a modern yet also traditional metropolis on the island.

Walking Route Features
On each day’s walk, you can explore some of Mallorca’s walking classics, which do require some good fitness. You will walk on good, sometimes stony footpaths. For the walk from Valldemossa to Deia you need to be surefooted and you need to have a head for heights.
