Walking and Cycling in Majorca

walking in Majorca

Mallorca is renown for its excellent walks. Walks range from the gentle strolls around Puerto Pollensa to the more ambitious walks in the Tramuntana mountains further South. Several companies offer walking as part of a holiday package - check out our list of activity holidays. You may be able to join the walks of these companies as a day visitor.

Check out our list of walking books and maps.

Mountains of experience to help you discover the very best of Mallorca on foot.

You are invited to share our passion for this Balearic Island on one of the very well established 6-10 mile Day Walks, which have been carefully graded to suit most abilities. All excursions include guide and transport.

We also offer a gem of week travelling through the fabulous Tramuntana mountains - The “Mallorcan Classic Trek” with full vehicle support to help move your baggage between venues whilst you enjoy the freedom of the hill. Starting in the picture postcard village of Valldemossa and finishing in the northern town of Pollensa.

Late spring you’ll find us in the enviable location of San Telmo at the islands south west tip, staying H/B at a family run venue close to some crackin walks!

If you need a guide - 2O yrs experience counts for a lot when asked to tailor days / weekends or holidays for groups or friends and this is now our biggest business.

Mallorca has long been a special place to visit for many reasons and now you've got another one!

Mallorca: Car Tours and Walks (Landscapes) ~ Valerie Crespi-Green

More Details

This was the first walking guide for Mallorca, the guide that won Sunflower the Sunday Times "Oscar" for best travel guide - and eventually made the island one of the most popular walking areas in Europe (and a favourite destination for bird-watchers, too). The author has lived on Mallorca for 30 years and knows the island intimately.

This completely revised 7th edition includes newly-drawn maps incorporating the recently inaugurated GR221 ("Drystone Route") - a long-distance walk which is covered almost in its entirety by the 60 long and short day walks in the book.

There are also 10 car tours with accompanying fold-out touring map, as well as plans of Palma and Soller, bus, train and boat timetables and panels of information on Mallorcan customs and features of the landscape. A free online update service informs users of any route-change information.

Walking in Mallorca ~ June Parker

More Details

"Walking in Mallorca" quickly established itself as the most comprehensive guidebook to the island, with particular emphasis on the rugged Serra de Tramuntana. June Parker's routes have been walked afresh, carefully checked and amended where necessary, and are now presented with new mapping and plenty of colour pictures. This book will entice walkers well off the beaten track, enabling them to explore the most diverse terrain around the island. Rugged mountain walks contrast with remote valleys, while waymarked trails give way to long-forgotten mule tracks and hidden mountain passes. Some walks run close to breathtaking cliff coastlines, while others pass through sleepy villages where welcome refreshment can be obtained. Birdwatchers, geologists and historians will find abundant interest throughout Mallorca, and a full introduction explains about facilities around the island. Language notes are given in native Catalan and Castilian Spanish, enabling visitors to pass the time of day with local people and make the most of their visit to the island.

Kindle version available!

Walk Mallorca Tour & Trail Super-durable Map

More Details Recommended - 2014 is a special year for Mallorca adventures with our new Walk Mallorca Tour & Trail Super-Durable Map by David Brawn and Walk! Mallorca guide book by Charles Davis. Comprehensively updated information from our popular North & Mountains Tour & Trail Map means that Walk Mallorca Tour & Trail Map gives you a super detailed, up to date, map of the Tramuntana region stretching from Peguera-Costa Calma- Santa Ponca in the west then running along the mountainous region to the very tip of the Formentor peninsula at Cap Formentor.

With a size of 1,080mm by 600mm at 40,000 scale on a double sided map sheet you get a lot of Mallorca on this map while still being easy to read thanks to our Tour & Trail design standards. 'Special Concertina Map Fold' makes Tour & Trail Maps easy to use, and more importantly easy to fold back to their handy pocket size. Those essential features of petrol stations, refreshment stops, miradors and off-road parking are easily seen while our background altitude shading plus 50 and 100 metre contours and spot heights bring this beautiful landscape to life. Super-Durable means we have printed the map on 'Polyart' to produce a lightweight map that feels like silk but is as tough as old boots to outlast the worst of conditions and fold up like new after every use.

All the 53 walking routes from our new (2014) Walk! Mallorca guide book are highlighted and clearly numbered on Walk Mallorca Tour & Trail Super-Durable Map. If you are planning Mallorca adventures on and around the Tramuntana then this is the essential map for you.

Walking in Mallorca - Dry Stone Paths

The promotion of walking in Mallorca on the dry-stone paths is considered to be an excellent way for the acknowledgement of the dry-stone walling heritage and the support to an activity within reach of everyone regardless of fitness and age. For those who enjoy walking this is an easy way of covering the whole territory and taking pleasure in the landscape and in what the path has to offer (history, art, tradition, legends, etc).

The Consell de Mallorca began this promotion restoring and signalling the ways of heritage or walking interest. Subsequently, they brought on more ambitious initiatives in the form of two walking routes: the Dry-stone Route and the Artà-Lluc Route.

These routes meant the creation of itineraries and simultaneously they are a way of revitalising the economy of the adjoining towns, respecting the environment at all times. Walking helps to recover heritage elements linked to the route, strengthens new touristic products and creates a new leisure offer for residents. Furthermore, it contributes to promote regional gastronomy and craft work and thus to recover farming and traditional trade, favour the creation of local companies, etc.

The two aforementioned projects are GR (long-distance) paths, meaning pathways with a distance over 50 km, signalled and approved by the Spanish Climbing and Mountain Sports Federation.

These GR paths are signalled by markers and direction signs. Markers are wood posts with indicating arrows displaying the GR colours (white and red). Direction signs have a sign indicating the type of path, its number, destination and, when deemed convenient, the approximate walking time.

For more information see the excellent pages provided by the Consell de Mallorca on Walking in Mallorca.

GR221 Mallorca's Long Distance Walking Route ~ Charles Davis

More Details WALK! GR221 MALLORCA S LONG DISTANCE TRAIL - THE DRY STONE WAY If you want to get away from it all , there is no surer way than strapping on your boots, shouldering your backpack, and embarking on a long distance path; and there are few long distance paths more beguiling and more crammed with adventure than Mallorca s GR221, La Ruta de Pedra en Sec or The Dry Stone Way.

Anybody who has visited Mallorca will appreciate the justice of the GR221 s title. Following ancient bridleways along the length of the Tramuntana range, from Port d Andratx in the southwest to Pollença in the northeast, the GR221 touches on dry stone in its every manifestation, from the raw rock of the peaks and sweeping fields of karst to the tailored stones that have always been the island's building material of choice.
