Away from the busy resorts, Mallorca has many wild and beautiful places which can be reached on foot – and we’ll take you to them on this guided walking holiday. Spring and autumn are the best times to go to enjoy comfortable temperatures for walking. There is a varied landscape of spectacular coastline with secluded coves, low-level mountains and sleepy villages to discover.

These lead to limestone summits to reveal sweeping views across the island.
