When you think of the most beautiful parts of Mallorca, what comes to mind?  Dreamy mountain villages, such as Valldemossa, paradisiacal coastline, juicy oranges from Soller or the fertile Orient Valley? Not to mention the captivating Serra de Tramuntana in the northwest of the island and the hustle and bustle of the capital Palma.  All of the above can be experienced first-hand during the hiking trip to Mallorca’s hotspots. Stroll through olive groves to the mountains of Tramuntana.  Enjoy the sea air in the bay of Deia – will you dare to jump into the shimmering water?  The mountain hike to Cami Costera won’t disappoint with its wonderful views. Continue on one of the beautiful coastal paths to the Torrent de Pareis.  At the Pass de L’Ofre you can see the Cuber reservoir and the imposing Puig Major.

Before you set off on your walk to Sóller, you can take a detour to Deia bay where the crystal clear, green shining water invites you to go for a cool down.

The descent is on an old shepherds’ path to Orient, which is Mallorca’s orchard.

Day 6

On a leisurely circular walk, you will discover the Orient valley with its orchards and flocks of sheep.
