The walking possibilities in Majorca are endless. Whether you're looking for a sea inspired coastal walk, a gentle country meander, or a hike up one of the dramatic mountain peaks, Mallorca has plenty of choice. It's the perfect place to break up your holiday with a day or two exploring the trails or it's a great island to enjoy a complete active holiday.
Mallorca is often described as a walkers’ paradise because of the attractive and varied scenery, the wonderful climate (walking is possible year-round bar July and August) and the relative seclusion of many of the walking paths. The island has two mountain ranges - the dramatic craggy Sierra de Tramuntana in the northwest and the more rolling, greener Sierra de Levante in the east. The Tramuntana's are the much larger and popular of the two, but both offer great walks and amazing scenery across the island and towards the sea.
Great bases for walking in the Northwest Tramuntana region include Valldemossa, Deia, Soller, and Fornalutx. In the Northeast Tramuntana's, try Pollenca and Alcudia. And for the Southeast Sierra de Levante anywhere in the Arta region.
