MALLORCA  SERRA DE TRAMUNTANA      BEST OF GR221

OCTOBER 4th – OCTOBER 9th            5 NIGHTS / 6 DAYS NORDIC WALKING THIS TRIP IS NOW FULL.

This trip aims to hike some of the more remote sections of the glorious GR221 trail – a truly beautiful route through the UNESCO World Heritage Site that ranks among the top treks in Europe. 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!

The first two nights we will be based at the beautiful terraced village of Banyalbufar with its ancient houses and gorgeous views to the sea. We will then walk to and spend the next night in Valldemossa, then transfer by taxi to e either Soller or Port Soller for the remaining 2 nights.

Includes:

5 nights Bed & Breakfast in 3* or 4* hotels

Al transfers and luggage transfers (where required.)

Tourist Tax.

6 Days guided walking.

£470 sharing in a Twin room, £670 single occupancy (subject to availability)

Not Included:

Flights to Palma, lunches, evening meals and drinks.

GRADE: ADVANCED

Suitable for those of you who consider yourself ‘hill-walkers’, these trips involve longer days on good paths and tracks. A good level of fitness is required as these treks can involve considerable amounts of ascent and descent and the occasional difficult day on rougher paths. We would expect you to have previous experience of walking on consecutive days in the hills, and have experience of hiking in bad weather. Expect to walk 5-7 hours per day with ascents and descents of up to 950m, 3150ft.

Details of more 2020 trips will be added here soon.
