Mallorca’s mountains make hikers’ hearts leap for joy, especially if it is all about the long distance hiking path GR221. It leads across the entire island from the north to the southeast and combines all highlights which constitute hiking on Mallorca. Views onto/from the coast you cannot get enough of, the alpine like Tramuntana Mountains, in between the two reservoirs, where Mallorca’s highest mountain is reflected in the water, or the citrus fruit in the idyllic Sóller valley, where you can smell spring already from a distance. Coastal villages such as Deià and Valldemossa are also located en route as well as monasteries, extensive country estates, fincas and renowned coastal towns such as Pt. Andratx. Fragrant macchia, evergreen and holly oak forests providing shade, inquisitive sheep and mountain goats accompany you along the route of the dry-stone walls, which are definitely going to fascinate you.
