Discover the Hidden Beauty of Mallorca on the Trans Tramuntana Hiking Adventure

If the idea of fragrant olive groves, sweeping vistas of the Mediterranean Sea, and the savory delights of Empanadas Mallorquinas piques your holiday senses, then the ‘Trans Tramuntana’ hiking expedition in northern Mallorca is your perfect escape. This well-marked trail offers a serene journey through the largest Balearic Island’s lesser-known side, where untamed landscapes of grass and rock await your exploration. Along the way, you’ll follow ancient pilgrimage routes, revealing a Mallorca you may never have known existed.

Exploring the Trans Tramuntana in Mallorca

The Serra de Tramuntana, nestled in the northwest of Mallorca, is both the path and the ultimate destination of this hiking adventure. This mountain range boasts enchanting trails meandering through pristine landscapes and unspoiled nature. What sets this week-long journey apart are the diverse hiking experiences it offers—sometimes along the rugged coastline, other times through the rugged inland terrain. Each new day of hiking unveils a different facet of Mallorca’s hidden beauty.

Highlights of the Mallorca Hiking Expedition:

Mallorca’s Pilgrimage Routes: Traverse magnificent pilgrimage paths between Pollença and Lluc, winding through holm oak forests and picturesque orchards. The culmination of these routes is the historic Lluc Monastery, where you can even spend a night in its timeless ambiance.

A Journey by Vintage Train: Conclude your Mallorca hiking week with a memorable ride on the ‘Red Lightning,’ a vintage train that takes you from Pt. Sóller to Palma—a delightful inclusion in your hiking holiday!

Idyllic Landscapes: Discover the unspoiled beauty of the Serra de Tramuntana, which showcases a whole new dimension of the Balearic Island, far from the well-trodden tourist paths.

Essential Details for Your Hiking Trip in Northern Mallorca

Your adventure in the Serra de Tramuntana begins on the Alcúdia peninsula, specifically in Port de Alcúdia. Your inaugural coastal hike treats you to breathtaking sea views along the peninsula’s scenic coast. Over the following days, you’ll gradually acquaint yourself with the peaceful and secluded Mallorca, culminating in the vibrant atmosphere of the island’s capital, Playa de Palma. These mountain hikes typically span between ten and 15 kilometers, demanding both sure-footedness and stamina, as the trails can be quite rocky.
