Get out of town and discover the Mallorca mountains! You’re going to be taken on a gorgeous Mediterranean hike, with visits to historical villages along the way and a panoramic view or two. Best of all, your reward for all that walking will be to kick back on a hidden beach, complete with a seaside picnic of authentic Mallorcan treats.
Pssst… it's a secret. The true beauty of Mallorca is actually hidden to most tourists, who spend all their time on the busy beaches that everyone knows. Instead of following the crowds, you're keeping it super-local on this Mallorca tour that shows you where to find the real beauty that only locals know. Tag along as you trek out to a unique corner of the island, far beyond the massive beaches of the south.
You’ll meet in town, then take a comfortable local bus to reach the beginning of our walk. From there, the trail you’ll follow is a historical path, once used by postmen to go from one village to another. As you walk, you’ll learn about native Mediterranean plants, and stop to admire the panoramic view from a mountaintop. You’ll land in the historical village of Serra Tramuntana and discover Arabic influences in the local architecture and agricultural traditions.
You’ll then arrive at a hidden beach — well, hidden to the tourists, that is! Locals love to go here, and you’ll join them as you soak up the sun and sea, and dig into a delicious lunch of typical Mallorcan food and drinks, such as empanadas and cocas de trampò. You’ll also dig into some delicious desserts such as ensaimada or a gatò with almonds... delicious! All of these treats come from the village’s historic bakery, and locals love them — you’ll love them, too!
In the summer months, you can work off your lunch with a dip in the sea; in winter, just lie out in the sun and soak up that easy Mediterranean vibe.
In the afternoon, you’ll again board the local bus to take us back into Palma, where you’re free to explore on your own.
Note that this walk is fairly easy and along a marked trail. The walk will take about three hours (including stops), with elevations of 300 metres up and almost 400 metres down.
