Planned Itinerary

Valldemossa to Deià - Our starting point is the pretty village of Valldemossa, situated in a valley of deep mountain slopes on the western part of the Tramuntana mountain range. Some of the most famous occupants of the town were Chopin and his mistress George Sand who spent a winter in the monastery here. From the town, we quickly join the aptly named ‘Dry Stone Way’ and ascend to enjoy wonderful panoramic and far-reaching views from the Archduke’s Path. Following some glimpses of today’s goal far below us, we begin our descent through the trees to Deià and our coach.11km (7 miles) with 600m (2,000ft) of ascent and 780m (2,600ft) of descent.

Deià to Hotel Porto Sóller - We will take the coach to Deià, a picturesque old town which spills down a hillside surrounded by farming terraces created over 1,000 years ago by the Moors. After following the island’s north coast past pretty coves, our route ascends into isolated farmland and tracks past orange and olive groves.We can enjoy views of Puerto de Sóller’s sweeping bay before descending down to the seafront and walking back to the hotel. 16km (10 miles) with 390m (1,300ft) of ascent and 540m (1,800ft) of descent.

Hotel Porto Sóller to Embassament de Cúber – We begin either by walking to Sóller on foot or by catching the delightful tram from Puerto de Soller’s waterfront. From Sóller’s quaint town square, a scenic half an hour’s walk takes us to the tiny old stone village of Biniaraix, passing orchards and farmland criss-crossed with ancient irrigation channels and dry-stone walls. As we leave the village and head up the river valley, the terrain steepens rapidly and we begin our most challenging ascent of the week passing near the dramatic Gorge of Can Catí, a popular canyoning destination. Stunning views will accompany us on our way up to the top, the Coll de L’Ofre at 2,870 feet (875 metres). From here, surrounded by peaks, we enjoy a gentle descent along the river valley of Binimorat to the shores of the beautiful Embassament de Cúber, the Cúber reservoir, where our walk ends today. 19km (12 miles) with 990m (3,300ft) of ascent and 240m (800ft) of descent.

Free day

With opportunities to visit Palma, or relax by the pool or beach.

Embassment de Cúber to Lluc Monastery - Today we spend a full day in the wild and wonderful Serra de Tramuntana Mountains. From the Cúber reservoir we follow the Canal de Embassments as it skirts beneath dramatic mountains. We then turn towards the mighty Puig de Massanella and ascend to the Coll des Prat just beneath the summit, reaching the highest point of our holiday at 3,936 feet (1,200 metres). From here the views are outstanding. We descend via a series of switchbacks to our final destination the Monestir de Nostra Senyora de Lluc, the Monastery of Our Lady of Lluc, the spiritual centre of Mallorca and a place of pilgrimage for over 800 years. 16km (10 miles) with 630m (2,100ft) of ascent and 840m (2,800ft) of descent.

Lluc Monastery to Pollença - Our final day starts with a short climb up from Lluc to the Coll Pelat from where we will have a great view of the monastery complex and surrounding mountains. We then traverse the mountain round to the Coll des Pedregaret and begin our steady descent down from the mountains to the Vall d’en Marc, the valley floor. We follow the river along the valley to our final destination of the week, Pollença. Founded by the Romans the town still has much of its old-world charm with narrow twisting streets and charming stone houses. The pride and joy of the town is its Via Crucis (“The Way of the Cross”) a long steep and beautiful stone stairway graced by ancient cypress trees. However with 365 steps it might be too much of a challenge at the end of our trail!. 19km (12 miles) with 240m (800ft) of ascent and 750m (2,500ft) of descent.

The itinerary may be subject to change at the discretion of the leader with regard to the weather and other external factors

Information

  • Double room for sole occupancy: £21 per night (2017)
  • Authorities in the Balearic Islands of Formentera, Ibiza, Mallorca and Menorca have introduced a Sustainable Tourism Tax on tourists visiting the islands which the government will use to help preserve their natural beauty and cultural heritage. As a result, a charge of €1.65 per person, per night, on all overnight stays in 4-star tourist accommodation has now come into force and will be applicable to your stay. It will need to be paid directly at your hotel and we would advise our customers to be prepared to pay upon arrival, although the hotel may allow you to add this to the final room bill.

 

  • Non-member associate fee: £10 per person
