By popular request, here is a walking holiday discovering the hidden gems of the northwest coast of Mallorca, the largest of the Spanish Balearic Islands. We will explore Mallorca’s astonishingly pretty rural scenery, walking local mule tracks to sleepy villages in the Soller valley, along wooded coastal paths and even tackling one of the gentler stretches of the famous GR221 (Dry Stone Way). Whilst walking under the Mediterranean sun, we will enjoy panoramic views of the impressive limestone peaks of the Sierra de Tramuntana mountain range and the rugged surrounding coastline with its secluded coves. April is a popular month to walk in this area with spring flowers and an abundance of orange blossom all around. One of our walks will take us to the stunning artists village of Deia with its bougainvillea-lined alleyways. On our rest day we might choose to explore the charming, and typically Mallorcan, town of Soller with its local market, art galleries and museums or we can enjoy the beach and cafes in Port de Soller – or both! There will be plenty of opportunity to sample the local produce, fresh seafood, tapas, homemade paella and Mallorcan wine too.
We will be staying in the newly refurbished Citric Hotel in Port Soller, a basic but comfortable hotel overlooking the charming harbour, beach and promenade lined with cafes, restaurants and local craft shops.
