Majorca, Baleares

Description

Majorca, Baleares

The largest of the Islas Baleares, Majorca - or Mallorca - is a popular holiday destination thanks to its beaches and climate. Much of the island is pretty flat, with larges settlements along its coastline and farmland in its centre.

The northern part of Mallorca is mountainous: Serra de Tramuntana. Here most of the hiking trails can be found. The mountain ridges seem to roll out of the centre of the island, like waves tipping over towards the sea, the white crests sticking out of the forests. Main trail on the island is the GR221, traversing the Serra de Tramuntana. The other trail is the GR222 crossing the island from east to west. Both trails are still under construction, but the itineraries are set out. Refuges - both private and municipal - can be found along these trails. Many shorter hiking trails on the island are marked.

  • A great walk but with real problems on the first few day to do with signage and access.....the walk by rights shouldn't say it begins until either Valldemossa or Deia where the signs start to become more reliable and there is no barbed wire fences...
