This classic traverse of the mountains, which form the islands Backbone is now a firm favourite and it´s easy to see why.

Trekking the Mallorca Mountains with the assistance of Bagagge TransfersTo get there youll only need a day sack as this trek offers full vehicle assistance
for the rest of your things.

It´s a land only tour which means you getting to the start and from the finish of the trek.

Level of difficulty: This holiday should present no difficulties to anyone in good condition who´s used to mountain walking. Most of the route is on well defined footpaths, but there are a few stretches over rough ground. The trek is graded B+, because there´s some 2000ft+ climb days and on the Massanella approach there´s a short scramble.

- Our hotel is family run and extremely well located. This evening we all dine together, so that we can fully appreciate what lies ahead in the coming days. Pure Magic!

B, PL, D

DAY 3:
- After breakfast we continue the walk with our destination being Port Soller situated on the edge of a crescent shaped bay and surrounded by high mountain scenery. To get there from Deia we take the old fisherman´s way above the sea to the hamlet of Lluc Alcari, then climb up to the houses of Son Mico with there lofty position, to view as far as the eye can see.
- The high balcony path is dominated by gnarled olive trees and great photographic opportunities.
- We arrive at the back of Port Soller, and conveniently right behind a bar, before checking in to our seafront accommodation for the next two nights. 3.5 Hrs walking approx.
B, PL, D

DAY 4:
- Rest day! But that´s entirely up to you, because a guided walk in the locality will be on offer. (This will usually be decided in Soller). Whatever you choose to do, having another day in this marvelous valley with its rich vegetation and attractive warm stone buildings is a must.

DAY 5:
- Breakfast
- Today´s leg of the journey takes us through an incredible variety of scenery.
- We leave Soller, and head towards the pretty picture postcard hamlet of Biniaraix to start the ascent of a 16th century limestone staircase, which has some of the most spectacular vistas anywhere in the Med.
- We continue after this to summit the distinct cone shaped peak of L'Ofre at 1091m.
- The day just gets better and better, as we follow the water pipeline from Cuber Reservoir down through a series of tunnels to reach a hidden valley where we find tonight´s place to sleep "The Tossals Verds Mountain Refuge".
- This is trekking at its best staying up in the hills away from urbanisation, under a star-studded sky.
- The meal at Tossals will give us a great chance to sample local cuisine, and sleeping is in a very comfortable, recently built bunk style dormitory. 6 to 8 hrs. walking this day approximately.
B, D

DAY 6:
- Breakfast
- Waking refreshed and ready to tackle anything. Today´s objective is to scale the island´s highest accessible peak "Massanella" 1352m. from its rocky southern flanks, then to drop down to the religious heartbeat of the island "The Monastery of Lluch".
- Massenella boasts being higher than anything in the British Isles and to stand proud on its summit is, to say the least, rewarding!
- Lluch Monastery is our accommodation for the night and naturally an experience not to be missed. Clean cotton sheets are placed neatly at the end of your bed, but you have to make it yourself.
- Then it´s down to eat a well earned meal with the rest of the group.
B, PL, D

DAY 7:
- Our last walking day starts after breakfast at Lluch. The route takes us up through Holm Oak woodland to a plateau called "Coll Pelat" then cuts across a hillside to the spring water bottling plant at Binifaldo.
- Here we follow the Cami Vell de Pollensa (The old way north before the asphalt road was built) hugging the sides of the mighty Puig Tomir mountain.
- Our arrival in Pollensa square marks the end of the trek, but never the memories!
- We are transferred across to Alcudia old town and the final accommodation on the tour. A centrally situated hostal with plenty of character.
- This is our last night together and I guess we'll have a lot to talk about over dinner.
B, D

DAY 8:
- Breakfast
- The tour ends after breakfast on day eight.
- The Homeward journey and getting to Palma Airport : A taxi to Palma from Alcudia costs 60 euros approx. The public bus from Alcudia requires a change in central Palma and of course the costs are much cheaper than a taxi. Any information needed on this subject will be available from the tour leader.
