Hiking

Mallorca boasts a wide range of landscapes thanks to the Serra de Tramuntana and the Serres de Llevant, the two jagged mountainous regions of the island. One of the simplest routes travels between Cala Bóquer and Port de Pollença, passing from the extreme east of the Serra de Tramuntana through the Bóquer Valley, a completely virgin area isolated from tourism. Before reaching Coll des Moro, you will catch sight of the Formentor peninsula and, finally, after crossing a slightly more complex route, you will reach Cala Bóquer. The round trip is 5 kilometres in total.

A good medium-difficulty trail is the Camí de s’Arxiduc (the path of the Archduke), a route mapped out by Archduke Ludwig Salvator of Austria so he could contemplate the landscapes. Start in Valldemossa and follow the route until you reach the most spectacular section, the trail from La Foradada to Puig des Caragolí. Finally, at Coma des Cairats, you loop back to the start point. The route takes 5 hours and it is 11.2 kilometres in total.

For the most demanding hikers, the final option is to hike from Escorca to the Torrent de Pareis. The first stop is Torrente de Lluc, passing through Entreforc to visit the Gorg Blau canyon, a huge crack with a height of over 250 metres. This route does not have a marked trail, you need to work through the terrain on your own until you reach the Torrent de Pareis. The route is approximately 5 kilometres with no fixed route. It is therefore advisable to use a guide.
