Hiking Valldemossa

Cost : FREE

On a clear day, this is one of the most stunning walks on the island. It is challenging, with a steep climb out of Valldemossa, but it's well worth the effort for the views along the north western coast. 

 

In the early hours of the morning started our walk in the centre of Valldemossa, and soon head uphill through the woods along olive tree ranches. We continued steeply uphill for some time with an occasional breather, and fabulous look-out points with sweeping views of Palma in the distance and the coast beyond Valldemossa. We finished our trek just in time for lunch, we stopped over at the local cuisines. The town is so beautiful with very few tourist.

Serra de Tramuntana 

Serra de Tramuntana is the name of a mountain range in northwest Mallorca. It covers 1100 sq km, with the highest peaks concentrated in its centre. It was awarded World Heritage Status by UNESCO in 2011 for its physical and cultural significance, shaped by millennia of agriculture in an inhospitable terrain.

Thousands of hikers visit Mallorca to hike the Serra de Tramuntana every year, and it’s easy to see why. The views are just spectacular! You can easily come here for a short day-trip or walk the whole damn thing.
