Don’t let its reputation as a destination for beach-seeking holidaymakers fool you, Majorca is a hiker’s Eden. A world away from the resort towns, walks in Majorca are serene and sublime. There’s towering peaks, fertile valleys, aromatic pine forests and always the sparkling sea.

Jutting up almost straight of the Balearic Sea, the dramatic mountainous spine of the Serra de Tramuntana will have you falling hopelessly in love with its ancient trails. Twisting paths lure you onwards, past groves of gnarled olive trees towards monasteries in the sky and summits boasting crumbling castle ruins. Majestic island panoramas abound.

Discover the sun-kissed trails that hug the rocky coastline, whilst the turquoise Mediterranean laps below. Coastal hikes in Majorca are predictably beautiful. Experience the rugged north west, where adventures through boulder-strewn gorges lead to tranquil, paradisiacal coves. If it all gets too hot, a glorious dip in the sea is always an option.

More Information

The biggest of the Balearics

Majorca is the largest and most dramatic island in the Balearic Archipelago. The island is criss-crossed by waymarked paths, taking you to all manner of gorgeous sights. The north west coast is dominated by the towering spine of the Serra de Tramuntana mountains. This gives way to the Es Pla, the flat, fertile central plain at the heart of the island. There are more hilly walks in Majorca found in the east on the modest slopes of the Serres de Llevant.

The dramatic Serra de Tramuntana

Some of the best hiking trails in Majorca are those that explore the Serra de Tramuntana mountains. The region boasts all manner of walks and hikes, from superb coastal rambles to strenuous ascents of the five summits over 3,280 feet (1,000 m). Sóller is an atmospheric base for adventures either along the coast or into the mountains. Its many bars and restaurants provide that much needed sangria or seafood after a busy days’ hiking.

For multi-day hikes in Majorca, the famous Dry Stone Route follows the ancient cobbled paths that traverse the full range. You can pick up these paths at various points and there are numerous accommodation options en route in the guise of characterful mountain refuges.

If peak bagging is your thing, it is worth noting that the highest peak, Puig Major at 4,741 feet (1,445 m) is out of bounds due to military use. This means the highest accessible peak is Puig de Massanella, at 4,475 feet (1,364 m) which, like much of the ridge, rewards your efforts with awe-inspiring island panoramas.

How to avoid the heat and the crowds

Majorca has a classic Mediterranean climate. The height of summer sees soaring temperatures and very little by way of precipitation. Due to this, spring, late summer and autumn are optimum for hiking. Nevertheless, sun cream is still an essential item and a light waterproof is recommended in the Serra de Tramuntana, where conditions can change very quickly. Despite mild winters, it is not uncommon for snow to fall on the higher peaks: an exquisite sight.
