Explore the history of Mallorca and the dramatic Sierra Tramuntana
Mass tourism is not the true face of Mallorca, and away from the busy resorts we find a tranquil and timeless landscape dotted with mediaeval villages and stunning scenery. It is an excellent off-season walking destination, with mild winters and springs, and a daily average of five hours sunshine. Our walking is in the rugged Sierra Tramuntana, a dramatic, little-visited area where we climb some of the island's highest peaks and walk some very spectacular paths. Opportunities for photographers, naturalists and ornithologists abound, ranging from hoopoes to eagles and from bee orchids to winter crocuses. Don't forget of course the delights of true Mallorquin cuisine, which is quite distinct from the mainland variety.
Note: More challenging walking is available on certain dates.
What makes this trip responsible?
On this trip we stay in family-run hotels and we eat in small restaurants offering Mallorquin specialities. The group’s activities have a low impact on the environment and our operator rents all equipment locally. These aspects contribute to the continuation of the community itself, by creating jobs and offering career prospects to local people, who may otherwise be tempted to move abroad in search of employment.
