Walk the Coast and Mountains of Mallorca


Nordic Walk in Spain

Join Walx Derwent and Dales and Tracks and Trails for their 2023 joint nordic walking break to the sunny isle of Mallorca.

Sun drenched trails, ancient orchards, gorgeous beaches. Explore the hidden face of this beautiful landscape on seldom travelled paths, far removed from the crowds. That is trekking The Serra de Tramuntana, a World Heritage Site in Mallorca that ranks among the top walks in Europe.

Enjoy 3 walks varying in length that combine rugged coastline, ancient shepherd and pilgrims trails, traditional Mallorcan towns, a mountain summit and historical landmarks. Making the most of this long weekend, we first base this trip in Port de Sóller then walk along the ‘spine of Mallorca’ GR221 trail with an overnight stop at the historic Monastery of Lluc.

Highlights

  • Experience the Northern Mallorcan coast and mountains

  • 3 nights at the Hotel Marina Wellness & Spa

  • Visit Cala Tuent, the largest unspoilt beach in the Tramuntana

  • Stay overnight at the famous Lluc Monastery

  • Explore the historic town of Pollenca

  • Led by two Mountain Leaders

  • Airport transfers, luggage transfers and local transport included

Imagine wild limestone mountains rising up above a jade green sea, with pine trees sculpting the horizons. Quaint little villages, fruit orchards, olive groves, and farmers working in the fields as you stroll along the trail pretty much sums up this experience. This is the 'hidden' Mallorca, and most certainly not the Mallorca of busy beach holidays!

Situated in the Western Mediterranean of Spain, the island, also known as Majorca, has been a passing point for navigators since antiquity, giving the landscape a rich and varied history. Our meeting point for this long weekend is Port de Soller, the north of the island, which is perfectly situated to access a variety of walks within the Serra de Tramuntana mountains and beautiful northern coastline.

UNESCO World Heritage Site

The Serra de Tramuntana has been awarded this status in recognition of its unique Mediterranean agricultural landscape. A landscape that over the centuries has been transformed by humankind from a scarce resource into a 'productive and well-adapted settlement'. This has been achieved through a system of terraces and cobbled roads, combined with a network of devices for the management of water. The landscape illustrates the fascinating mix between the Muslim and Christian cultures. A combination of the Arabic water harvesting and management technology with the agricultural know-how and the territorial control system introduced by the Christian conquerors, who took over the island of Mallorca in 13th century AD.


The WALX Team are passionate about promoting the physical, mental and social benefits of being active outdoors.


Itinerary

  • Today you arrive in the Balearic Islands ready to start your journey. You will most likely choose to fly to Palma de Mallorca, the capital. The city itself is worth a visit, and arriving a day early allows you to explore the shops and alleyways. From here, you need to travel north to the picturesque fishing village and sandy beach of Port de Sóller, where we will spend the first three nights.

    For convenience we have included one return airport transfer from Palma airport to the start of the trip in Port de Sóller. The journey time is about 50 minutes. See Arrival and Departure details under Trip Information for details.

    Depending on arrival times once checked in we plan to stretch the legs with an out and back coastal walk.

    Please read the Trip Grading description given in the Trip Information section. This trip is Moderate in terms of distance hiked, and ascents and descents, but because of the length of days and the heat we have graded it Intermediate.

  • Walk one of Mallorca’s classic trails along the coastline of Sa Costera. Finish at Cala Tuent for a swim and refreshments before catching the boat back to Port de Sóller.

    We take a short taxi transfer from Port de Soller to the start of today's walk, the viewpoint known as Mirador de ses Barques, 400m. The route is a well developed coastal path with one steep short incline that leads us towards the wild and rugged northern coastline that is interspersed all along with bays and capes offering beautiful open seascapes. Initially on wide cart tracks, our path descends through a farmstead into the valley to an old defence tower at Balitx d'Avall. We then regain height surrounded by orange plantations to reach Coll de Biniamar, 365m. Our linear walk finishes at a beautiful swimming bay where there is a restaurant for refreshments. To return to Port de Soller we will use the local taxi boat which is wonderful way to reach our accommodation and to end the day.

    Distance: 10.1km (6.3 miles) Duration: 3h 40 Ascent: 340m Descent: 740m

  • Walk the magnificent descent from Cúber reservoir through the Biniaraix gorge to Sóller along the GR221, another linear walk.

    The Cúber reservoir situated at 750m is a much visited walkers crossroads' surrounded by the highest peaks on Mallorca. Leaving the dam wall our path keeps its height and then has an easy climb of 125m to reach the Coll de l'Offre, 875m. Along the way the peak covered in woodland, Puig l'Ofre is always in our sight. Easy walking, all on a gravel trail takes us to a viewpoint where we can look into the Biniaraix gorge. It's here we join the pilgrim trail that leads us down to the valley of Sóller through one of Mallorca's most impressive gorges via countless bends. Terraced slopes, dripstone formations at the edge of the path, and rocks worn smooth by  water in the stream bed, together with the fabulous views down the gorge make this a stunning walk. We take a break under the two olive trees where there is a spring to replenish our water from. Shortly after we come to the narrowest section of the canyon where the walls are only 6 metres apart. As we exit the gorge we find a tarred road that takes us to the village of Biniaraix where we can get refreshments. It's another 40 minute walk on to Sóller. Sóller is a lovely Mallorcan town perfect for shopping or cafe culture. Choose to return to Port Sóller on foot (an extra 3 miles) or take the old tram through the orange groves.

    Distance: 11.6km + optional 6km (7.2miles + 3miles) Duration: 3h 50 Ascent: 200m Descent: 900m

  • This morning we say farewell to Port de Soller as we taxi back up to the Cúber reservoir, the same starting point as yesterday but instead walk east and in terms of duration, this is our longest day. Our luggage will be taken on to the Lluc Monastery our destination for today. The Monastery of Lluc has long been considered the spiritual heart of Mallorca, and the perfect location to learn about the history and culture of the island and its people.

    We have a choice on today's walk to either:-

    Complete a circular walk around the Tossals Verds massif which has all the ingredients of an exciting mountain day. Wonderful panoramas of sheer 1000m peaks and still mountain lakes, a welcome break lunch at the Refugi de Tossal Verds, plus steep mule tracks giving access to the mountain summit of Puig des Tossals Verd 1118m (3667ft).

    A taxi at the end of the day takes us to overnight at the Lluc Monastery.

    Distance: 11.7km (7.2miles) Duration: 4h 30 Ascent: 590m Descent: 590m

    OR

    Walk the pilgrims trail on the long distance GR221 trail to reach the monastery completing a full traverse from Sóller to Lluc. Leaving the Cúber reservoir, at the foot of the steeply rising north face of the Puig Massanella the route ascends through a delightful high valley to reach the highest pass on Mallorca before descending through ancient forests to reach the doors of the Lluc Monastery.

    Distance: 15.4km (9.5miles) Duration: 5h 15 Ascent: 720m Descent: 990m

     

  • After breakfast we take a private transfer to the ancient town of Pollença. The town is situated between two small hills: the Calvari with its 365 steps that takes you to the oratory that crowns it, and Mount Maria at 325m (1066ft). The town is very lively and is a great place to spend our day.

    The pick up will be at 1315hrs from the main square in order to arrive at the airport for 1415hrs in time for the 1630hrs flight to Luton. It's also possible to take the local bus to the airport at a time which suits you or smaller group taxis if you are planning an earlier flight.

    Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your flight departure times or if you'd like to arrange any additional nights.

It is always our aim to complete the proposed itinerary outlined above, however, it may be necessary for our guides/instructors to adjust the daily itinerary based on the weather conditions, group safety and enjoyment.

Accommodation

On all our trips we always aim to accommodate our guests in well-situated, clean, characterful, family run accommodation. In many cases we have known the management for years, and it’s like visiting friends. Our suggested accommodation, listed below, is subject to availability at the time of booking. We have given details of our favoured venues and those we intend to use. If unavailable we will book alternative accommodation of a similar standard.

Our trip fees are based on two people sharing a room. If you are travelling on your own your booking will be based on a twin bedroom sharing with someone of the same gender. 

Single rooms are available on request for a supplementary fee of £250. We recommend booking as early as possible to secure a single room as these are always limited in number. Please contact us for details.

On this trip the accommodation will be in twin rooms in a characterful family run 3* hotel. There will also be one night in the Lluc Monastery where the accommodation will be in a simple twin room with private bathroom.

Please note that the Spanish title of 'Hostal' simply means hotel, and should not be confused with the English word 'Hostel' which refers to more basic accommodation used by groups.

Hotel Marina, Port de Sóller

Hotel

The family-run 3* Hotel Marina has been trading for over 90 years. It is situated on the promenade of Port Sóller and offers superb sea views. It features an outdoor pool, spa, easy access to Platja den Repic beach and rooms with private balconies. Many guests return year after year. The owner are proud of their delicious local gastronomy, wonderful landscapes, art and culture.

Hotel Marina Puerto de Sóller has bright, air-conditioned rooms, free WIFI, satellite TV, a private bathroom and minibar. The restaurant serves à la carte cuisine or a set menu, and has a terrace with impressive views of the bay. Guests can also enjoy a drink or snack in the Bar Café Marina.

St Lluc Monastery

Auberge

Overlooked by the Puig de Massanella mountain, the highest trekking peak in Mallorca, the St Lluc Monastery is a haven of tranquility and contemplation. When we walk off the trail and into the stone paved courtyard it really does feel as though we have arrived somewhere a 'little different' to our normal accommodation. The Monastery has been an integral part of Mallorca life for many centuries. 

The bedrooms are not exactly monastic! The rooms are bright, and spacious and all have private bathrooms and central heating, with several offering wonderful views to the mountains. The restaurant at the Monastery serves Mallorcan cuisine, and the grounds hold a Museum where you can learn about Mallorcan life and culture, and there is also a Botanic Garden. 


  • When booking a trip during the pandemic we ask that you keep an open mind and be willing to adapt and be flexible.

    Any holiday taken during the Covid-19 pandemic may be subject to change and with little or no notice of that change. As the past months have proven no-one can predict the situation from one week to the next, however, we will do our very best to gauge the best response to any new developments. New restrictions or guidelines might affect where we eat out, which accommodation we can stay in, and potentially transport arrangements if the numbers in vehicles are restricted. 

    Itineraries may not be exactly as advertised due to new regulations or restrictions. We are sure there will be various scenarios which we have not even thought about that might lead to a change or adaptation in the itinerary.

    Please read our Covid-19 Cancellation Policy and ensure you have appropriate insurance as per our recommendations. We also ask that you make yourself aware of the entry requirements of any country you are visiting on your trip. We have compiled a Travel Links Advice list to help you source the correct information.

Otherwise, you are welcome to take the local bus service at a time which suits you. You may choose to spend another night in Palma, or extend your trip for a few days on the beach! Bus timetables can be found here.

  • When booking a trip we ask you to acquire insurance to cover you for the following:

    Mountain Rescue Insurance

    It is a condition of booking that you are insured against medical expenses, injury, illness, death, mountain rescue, cost of repatriation and personal accident risks. Please ensure that your insurance covers you to the maximum altitude given on your trip itinerary. The maximum altitude for any trip can be checked on the 'At A Glance' box on each trip page. Most of our trips have a maximum altitude of 3,000 metres. If you are unsure or are joining a bespoke trip, then please ask us for specific details.

    Trip Cancellation/Curtailment Insurance

    You should also have insurance to cover trip cancellation and curtailment. Please note that your deposit and balance payments are non-refundable, unless it is Tracks and Trails who cancel the trip due to a failure to reach the required minimum numbers. In this case we will offer you a refund or the option of transferring to another trip if one is available. We also advise that you should have insurance which covers baggage loss/equipment damage as Tracks and Trails will not be held responsible for loss/damage to baggage/equipment.

    COVID-19 Insurance

    As well as medical cover, we recommend that you have appropriate travel insurance so that if you fall ill and test positive for COVID-19 prior to (or during) your trip, you will be financially covered for cancelling your trip. You should also consider booking a policy that covers you if you have to cancel or curtail your holiday because you have to self-isolate. If you choose to cancel, cancellation charges will be payable, but if the reason for your cancellation is covered under the terms of your insurance policy, you may be able to reclaim these charges. Please read the clauses below detailing trip cancellation and curtailment.

    Travel Insurance covering COVID-19 is now available from a number of suppliers, Campbell Irvine, Trailfinders and Staysure. Please check their websites for the latest information on what is and isn't covered. It is likely that more companies will offer COVID related cover in the future.

    All of the above insurances are detailed in our Terms and Conditions

    If you are joining a trip in the UK helicopter/mountain rescue insurance is not required as this is a free service.

    For further details, please read the Insurance section on our website.

  • When packing for a trip in the mountains it is important to have appropriate equipment and clothing.

    Equipment

    • Walking boots - comfortable & waterproof, with a good tread. We have no objection to ‘low cut mountain walking shoes’ if they have a stiff sole for rough terrain. Be aware that early season snow can remain on the high passes and boots may be necessary!

    • Toiletries – soap/shower gel; not all accommodation supplies these

    **Supplementary snacks if you follow a gluten free or coeliac diet**

    Leaders are all first aid trained and will carry their own first aid kit

  • On many of our trips there will be an element of 'group kit' which will be shared amongst our guests. As mountain people you will be used to team work and working together to the mutual benefit and safety of the group.

    The 'group kit' will be minimal and usually just a case of sharing a few lightweight 'survival shelters'. For example on a week-long trip you may carry a small shelter for just one day before passing it on to the next person. 

    If you are booking a trip in winter there will be a few additional safety items. These will be distributed in such a way that no one is over burdened. 

    Other group items necessary for safety and comfort will be carried by your guide/instructor.

  • For each of our trips a minimum number of guests is required before we can confirm that your trip will go-ahead. The minimum and maximum number of guests on your trip is displayed in the 'At a Glance' box on the righthand side of the trip page. 

    We strongly advise you do not book travel until we have confirmed your trip is 'guaranteed' to run. If you book travel before we have confirmed it is 'guaranteed' we cannot be held responsible for any financial loss if the trip does not go ahead.

  • When booking a holiday as a solo traveller a twin bedded room comprising of two single beds, is booked as standard. This will be with someone of the same gender unless you request to pay extra for your own room. Single rooms are often limited in supply so if you would like to pay a supplement for a single room we urge you to get in touch as soon as possible. This trip has a single supplement of £250. 

  • Tracks and Trails go to great lengths to work with first class guides and instructors who are passionate about their work. They are all fully qualified, insured, and hold the correct documentation for the countries that they work in.

    Please note your guide has complete discretion to make a daily decision on whether or not to take the advertised route based on the weather and the ability of the members of the group. They have our authority to make any route changes they believe are necessary in the interests of safety and enjoyment. 

    Your hiking guide will be a fully qualified and experienced International Mountain Leader. International Mountain Leaders are not only qualified to ensure the safe management of the group, but are also a source of knowledge about the local flora and fauna, and traditions of the area which you are visiting. You can learn more about our guides and instructors on the About Us page.

  • We have graded this trip Intermediate only for the following reasons. Not because it is technically difficult or because it has long ascents and descents, but simply because the days are relatively long in terms of distance, and the temperatures can be quite warm. We would otherwise grade it as Moderate. You can read the grades in full here. You can also read the statistics with regard to distance walked, ascended, descended etc on the daily itinerary.

  • Part of this trip walks 'point-to-point' which means your bags are transferred each day to the next accommodation and you only need to carry a small/medium sized 'rucksack' for items you might need during the course of the day. Please refer to the kit list for this trip for guidance on the size of rucksack required.

    As your luggage will be moved along the route by taxi we ask that you keep the weight to a maximum of 15kgs (33lbs), and ONE bag per person. Many of the taxi companies who move your bags impose a 15kg (33lbs) limit and restrict the number of bags simply because they have to unload and reload the vehicle many times each day. If you take more than one bag you may be asked to pay a supplement. Also with regard to weight be aware that you may have to carry your luggage to your bedroom, which may involve climbing several flights of stairs as not all hotels have elevators. Luggage on wheels is generally a good idea.

  • We do not include lunches in your trip fee for various reasons. We have found our guests have particular tastes and requirements for 'trail' or 'hill' food and it is better you purchase your own snacks. Buying supplies and trying local specialities is a great way to inter-act with the local people and to practise your language skills. 

    Lunches on our trips are 'picnic' style lunches, in other words you take a packed lunch with sufficient snacks, food and fluid to sustain you throughout your day of activity. If there is the possibility of lunch being taken at a restaurant/farm/cafe beside the trail, your guide/instructor will advise you of this. 

    Each evening you can choose to order a picnic or a sandwich from the hotel, or your guide/instructor will advise you of other options such as a local shop or market and whether you need to purchase items in the evening or if the shop/market is open early enough the next morning not to delay your start. In all cases we would always ask you to settle any 'bill' for lunch or drinks in the evening before you depart, and not on the morning of your last day when there may be a queue.

  • On your itinerary you will find an indication of the amount of ascent and descent you can expect each day. This offers a guideline to how much effort might be expended each day and allows you to decide, based on previous experience, if your fitness and stamina are correct for the trip. 

    We make every attempt to ensure these statistics are as accurate as possible, but ask you to note that the most modern of technology used to record these details can show considerable variations in terms of ascent, descent, and in particular distance. In other words no two people using GPS devices on the same route will have exactly the same details recorded at the end of the day. 

    The statistics given should be used as a 'general' indication of the effort required. 

  • In Mallorca, which is in the Balearic Islands, in Spain, the summers are short, warm, humid, dry, and mostly clear and the winters are long, cold, windy, and partly cloudy. Over the course of the year, the temperature typically varies from 5°Celsius (41°F) to 30°Celsius (86°F) and is rarely below 1°Celsius (34°F) or above 33°Celsius (92°F).

    In the months when we run our trips the temperatures are great for hiking. In May the temperatures range from 15°Celsius (59°F) to 23°Celsius (73.2°F) and in September between 20°Celsius (68°F) to 28°Celsius (82.4°F).

  • It is useful to arrive at your destination with some cash in the local currency, however, on most occasions it is relatively easy to visit a 'cash machine' after arrival and withdraw money on a credit or debit card. Some of our locations are an exception to this in particular Norway, where the accommodation will often have no facilities for withdrawing cash, but they will take a credit card. 

    On many of our trips we will visit remote cafes/farms where it is wonderful to enjoy a drink and a cake, at places such as these they will only accept payment in the local currency in cash.

  • Food

    On our trips we encourage you to experience local tastes and dishes that reflect the culture of the country and for this reason many of our accommodation options will be family run with a reputation for the traditional food of the region. 

    If you have a 'special' diet because of an allergy or intolerance to a certain food type which will make you ill the accommodation will cater for this as best they can, eg gluten free, nut free, lactose free.

    If you are vegetarian then this is not a problem as the hotels/refuges are used to being asked for vegetarian meals. Our accommodation will try to cater for those with vegan diets but in remote refuges in the mountains this is more difficult. If you would like to discuss the suitability of a trip for a vegan diet please contact us. Gluten-free diets will be possible with regard to the evening meals, but we would advise that you bring along some gluten-free snacks for your breakfasts and lunches.

    If you have a 'special' diet which is NOT because of an allergy or intolerance, and is not 'veggie' then we apologise, but we cannot cater for this. The accommodation on the popular routes will be catering for many people each evening, in some cases up to 70/80 meals per night, 7 days a week, and realistically they cannot produce many different meal options unless the food will result in illness.

    Water

    The countries we visit all have tap water which is drinkable. If for any reason a particular hotel is having a problem with a remote mountain water supply they will normally post a sign over the tap indicating that you must not drink the water. At all times you are welcome to ask your guide/instructor if the water can be drunk. We would ask, for environmental reasons, that you avoid using single-use plastic bottles, and bring a water bottle that can be used repeatedly. 

  • A passport with 6 months remaining validity at the end of your stay is generally required for visits to countries outside the EU, such as Norway. Please check the relevant embassy or consulate for other nationalities. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the correct travel documents and visas for your holiday. Visa requirements and charges are subject to change without notice.  

  • We recommend you check if you require an adaptor for your electrical items at:

    http://www.worldstandards.eu/electricity/plugs-and-sockets/

    Note that if your trip involves staying in a mountain refuge/rifugio/hut that electric sockets may be in short supply and for that night you may not be able to charge any items. Although the accommodation will have electricity this will often be supplied by solar panels or a generator and limited to use by the staff. For this reason we advise that carrying a small slimline and lightweight 'battery pack' can be very useful for recharging phones which many of you will also use as your camera. 

  • Before booking consider whether you expect to be in the appropriate physical condition on the date of your  departure to allow you to fully participate in and enjoy your holiday. If you have any doubts because of an illness or injury it would be advisable to check with your doctor.

    For UK residents travelling to an EU country you should obtain and bring with you a free Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC). This entitles you to state provided medical treatment in certain European countries, but is not a substitute for medical travel insurance.

    If you have a UK European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) it will be valid until the expiry date on the card. Once it expires, you’ll need to apply for a GHIC to replace it. The UK Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) lets you get state healthcare in Europe at a reduced cost or sometimes for free. Please check this before departing. We advise that you always carry your insurance documents with details of the Emergency Medical telephone number for your insurance provider, and your policy number. 

  • We feel strongly about protecting the environment and do not encourage the use of single-use plastic items. We would ask that you arrive with a ‘water bottle’ or ‘hydration system’ that can be used repeatedly. We would point out that we operate a ‘zero tolerance’ for rubbish, and would ask you to remove all your rubbish items from the mountain even those you consider to be bio-degradable. In particular we ask that you remove any toilet tissue.

    You can read our full policy here.

  • Working across international boundaries, and with various currencies means that the price of our trips can change overnight. We have, however, undertaken to guarantee that once you have paid your deposit the price of your trip is fixed. In this respect we urge you to book early to ensure that you receive the price advertised on our website. The website price may increase due to currency fluctuations, but we guarantee that the price advertised on the date of your booking will be maintained in your individual case. 

  • Due to the specialised nature of our holidays, we co-sell a number of trips with 'partner' companies. These are carefully selected to ensure they reflect our ethos and standards in terms of the service we offer our guests. By encouraging other companies to sell our trips it means that your chosen holiday may reach its 'minimum' number earlier, allowing us to guarantee the trip and to give you the go-ahead to book your travel arrangements.

    There may be occasions when our partners have helped book your accommodation and organise the logistics for your trip. On these occasions your hotel may have recorded your room reservation in the name of one of our partners. 

    We guarantee that companies with whom we work will offer the same package as Tracks and Trails Ltd. The price will be the same, though occasionally they may be operating in a different currency. Your itinerary and the items that are included, or not included in your trip fee, will also be the same. 

    We believe in team work, and enjoy working with other small high quality companies. If you have any questions about this policy please contact us and we will be happy to discuss it with you.
