Mallorca Walking

Many of us will think of beaches, bars and nightlife when we think of Mallorca, however, this beautiful island has so much more to offer. On this holiday we will discover the island’s other face as we hike through some of it’s most spectacular scenery; from its stunning coastline and breathtaking mountains, to the island’s peaceful interior, a land where time forgot, where tranquil, villages sit peacefully amidst groves of olives, lemons and almonds – its no wonder Mallorca is regarded by many as having some of the best walking in Europe.

Deià to Soller Walk

We start this walk from the delightful village of Deià. With its traditional buildings and colourful, flower-filled terraces, Deià has inspired artists from all over the world. We follow a scenic old trade route along the coast, passing numerous citrus orchards. We finish in the narrow cobbled streets of the historic port of Soller.

The Postman’s Route

This walk is known locally as the ‘Cami des Correu’- the postman’s route. Two contrasting villages make this walk extra special; Banyalbufar sits high on the cliff tops of the lower west coast, and is instantly recognisable by the terraced cultivation all around. Our linear pathway climbs up and out of the area, passing vineyards and smallholdings, to reach the equally attractive, inland market town of Esporles.

Valldemossa

This circular hike starts in one of Mallorca’s prettiest villages, Valldemossa. Writers, artists and composers have found inspiration in Valldemossa over the years, including the Polish composer Chopin, and more recently, Michael Douglas! From here we walk uphill through almond and olive groves enjoying fabulous views of the coast.

Hotel La Concha Soul

Located in the seaside town of Peguera, and just a 4 minute walk to the beach, Hotel La Concha Soul is perfectly located.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you are fit and well enough to take part in your chosen activity holiday. If you are unsure as to whether the walks are within your capabilities, please contact the office to discuss this matter, thus making sure you appreciate the terrain that you will be walking.

You could be walking across uneven ground in some areas and extreme care must be taken, especially if wet. If used to using a pole/stick, it is advisable to bring it. Please appreciate the route and content of the holiday may change at the time and at the discretion of the guide/organiser, should conditions require. Solo’s Holidays Ltd cannot be held responsible for personal injury, accident or damage to property whilst on these walks other than incidents arising out of the company’s negligence. The guide has the right to refuse to guide a walk with anyone not properly attired.

What to Wear
It is of paramount importance that you have the correct footwear. It is essential to wear walking boots that are comfortable and preferably lightweight, with some ankle support and a good grip. If you already have a pair of boots that you are happy walking in (including during hot/wet weather and on hard ground), then bring these along. However, if you are bringing new footwear, do make sure they are well broken in before you arrive. Experience has shown that wearing 2 pairs of woollen socks adds to comfort.

The weather, even in summer, is unpredictable – particularly in mountainous areas. We would therefore recommend you travel with clothing suitable for all conditions, and suggest you use the following checklist as a guideline of what to take:

  • Walking boots with good ankle support
  • Waterproofs – jacket and trousers
  • Walking poles – recommended as they provide good support for the knees, particularly on downhill sections of walks and when conditions are wet/slippery
  • Lightweight trousers and shorts with pockets
  • Shirts or t-shirts for walking in
  • Walking socks – several pairs
  • Lightweight fleece or jumper
  • Hat & gloves
  • Daysack/rucksack for walking
  • Umbrella – it can be used also for protection from the sun as well as rain
  • Lightweight drinking bottle to carry water whilst walking
  • Small first aid kit – plasters, insect repellant, etc
  • Good, high factor sunscreen, sunhat and sunglasses – the sun’s strength is often multiplied in mountainous areas.

More to Explore
You will have 2 free day on the holiday, during which time you may wish to relax, or explore the island further. Your Tour Leader will be on hand to advise/assist you in arranging any additional trips.

Gratuities
We suggest a Group Collection to cover transfer drivers, and hotel staff of €15.00 per person. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate % to add on.
