Self guided tour on Mallorca

Self guided tour on Mallorca 639 , 8 Days

La Luminosa, the enlightened, is the Spanish name for Majorca. The largest of the Balearic islands has many hidden secrets and shows off to her best advantage. Explore the tranquil core of Majorca the wild Sierra de Tramuntana with good walking paths over rocks and though sun drenched scattered oaks. Cross olive groves to picturesque villages with manor houses and castles. Now and again you enjoy marvellous views of the sea and small islands. Sun, beach, sea and recuperation are the strong points of the idyllic coastal villages.

Most of you, who are used to walking/cycling during a long weekend, will be in condition to cope with a tour of this level. You should be in a good health condition. We have successive days of longer and more difficult walking and days of lighter walking/cycling. Some parts of the day routes are done at a higher altitude. The paths are in good condition. We walk/cycle for 5/7h a day.

These tours include trekking which is a little harder, normally on a challenging terrain. We take it for granted that you are in good condition and fit. You should be physically prepared at home to get the maximum of the tour. Most of the trekking is done at a greater height (max 3000m).
