(2 star Hotel / Palma De Mallorca)
You need to arrive in Palma de Mallorca on the Saturday pre 19hrs to be taken out to dinner to meet the rest of the group.
You’ll be given clear directions of how to get from the airport to our central Palma accommodation.
“Es Capdella – Estellencs” (Hotel / Estellencs)
After breakfast we’ll be taken by hired transport to the trailhead in sleepy Es Capdella village and picnic and water is provided this day.
We start walking along country lanes that become forest tracks and later mountain passes, to access the spectacular west coast and tonight’s family run accommodation (6.5hrs walking approx) Dinner included.
“Estellencs – Esporles” (Hostal / Esporles)
This part of Mallorca has to be about the most isolated and has a special charm and peacefulness. Our hike is undulating and has two options, depending on group and weather. The most direct, takes us through the Planicia estate and onto the old postman’s route between Banyalbufar and Esporles, or we can extend day to incorporate Port Des Canonge. Either way, is lovely. We stay at the central Hostal by the main church. (Walking 7/8hrs approx) Dinner included.
“Esporles – Valldemossa” (Hotel or Apts / Valldemossa)
Today’s hike passes lots of traces of old rural industry, as we tackle two hills to arrive at a place that needs no introduction – Valldemossa .We stay in centrally located spacious apartments and walking its streets by night, is like owning your own film set. (Walking 5.5hrs approx) Evening meal together, but not included in tour cost.
“Valldemossa – Deia” (Guesthouse / Deia)
The famous Archdukes pathway climbs away from Valldemossa, to arrive at an old charcoal workers route, which takes us all the way down to the pretty settlement of Deia. A guesthouse not far from the hill top church is our overnighter and staying in Deia is an experience not to be missed. (Walking 6/7hrs approx) Evening meal together, but not included in tour cost.
“Deia – Port Soller”. (Hotel / Port Soller)
If you can pull yourself away from breakfast on the stunning terrace looking out over the village, we’ll walk down to Cala Deia and follow a path by the aqua marine water’s edge, as far as the hamlet of Lluc Alcari.This is the start of about an hour’s UP to access the highway that came before the road – Cami Son Castello. After this climb it’s not far until we make a stop at the agrotourism venue called Son Mico, with adorable quiche and cakes to devour. Our descent into Port Soller is via a path, with great views of the crescent shaped bay. We check into our hotel for the next two night’s half board. (Walking 7hrs approx) Dinner included.
“Walk organised in vicinity of Soller valley” (Hotel / Port Soller)
We’ll make suggestions of how best to use today and offer a walk, although travel costs are not included.
(Walking 4.5hrs approx). Dinner included.
Departure day! Public transport and taxis easy to organise to get to the airport and we’ll provide any information needed.
Don’t forget you could travel back to Palma on the orange express train. Airport shuttles are then located just across the road.
Please note: There may be some variation to the basic tour plan depending on weather conditions and group interests.
