In the Sierra de Tramuntana and on the coast, you hike through olive groves to charming villages with manor houses and palaces.

Day 3

Pilgrim path Pollenca – Lluc 

Transfer to Pollenca where we follow the historical pilgrim path to Lluc. The high peaks of the Sierra de Tramuntana accompany our walk over the pass passing the Puig Tomir. Shady groves of evergreen oaks, blossoming orchards and meadows line the route. A special highlight waits for us at the monastery Lluc: the botanical garden.

Day 4

Pilgrim path Cuber reservoir – Lluc

In the morning we transfer to the Cuber reservoir, where we start the next part of the pilgrim path to Lluc. Today we walk up high into the Sierra and cross the passes to Lluc. An unusual landscape with high grass, rocks as found in high mountain regions. Sunny views of the steep coast and lush valleys certainly make this day a highlight of your vacation.

Day 5

Pilgrim path Cuber reservoir – Soller

Today we again start at the Cuber reservoir and walk along the beach to the pass L’offres. We follow the serpentine trail up to Es Cornador where we enjoy the best view of the famous terrace-walk down to Soller. Of course we also take this walk down to the idyllic gorge and the gardens of Soller. We then take the old tramway along the coast to Puerto Soller.

 

Day 6

Postal route Deia – Soller 

A shuttle bus brings us to the artist colony Deia, the jewel on the west coast. In the bay of Deia, today’s walking tour leads along the coast up to the idyllic postal route to Soller. A visit of an old olive-oil press, fresh orange juice and a walk through olive groves round off the day.

Day 7

Palma de Mallorca

We take the famous train from Soller to Palma. Enjoy this journey up to the hillsides of the Tramuntana and through the fertile plains of Palma. After days of mountain solitude the liveliness on the Playa de Palma is a remarkable change of scenery.

 

Day 8

Depart today or extend your stay in Palma.

 

Tour Rating- moderate

Daily distance up to 6 hours, you walk up to 17 km. per day.

Ambitious mountain walking tour mainly on craggy walking trails.

The serpentine paths over the Tramuntana are good but lonesome. Huts or shops aren’t available during the daily stages and you have to carry enough to drink with you!
