Start in Santuari de Lluc and end in Valldemossa, the Majorca: Sierras And Monasteries trip is a guided walking tour that takes 8 days. You will travel through Mallorca, Sóller and Puig de Massanella in Spain. Majorca: Sierras And Monasteries is a trip which includes accommodation in hotels, meals and others.

A serendipitous walk in the Sierra de Tramontana in Majorca. With peaks up to 1370m/4500ft, the Sierra de Tramontana is a rugged limestone mountain range in Majorca. It runs parallel to the NW coast of the island, forming one of the most spectacular coastlines of the Mediterranean. Mountain tops are bare, but lower slopes are thickly forested with holm oak and Aleppo pine. In the settled valleys there are ancient terraces of olive, orange and almond groves. A protected length of coastline that you'll walk along includes an important bird sanctuary and you may see the rare European Black Vulture near Puig Roig. The villages of the Majorcan mountains, such as Valldemossa, Soller, Deia, Biniaraix and Fornalutx are particularly attractive, with their mellow stonewalls and flower-bedecked balconies. Our carefully compiled walking route descriptions take you to the peaks of El Teix (1063m), along the 19th century "Archduke's trail" above Valldemossa, and the fine viewpoint of Massanella peak (1351m) near Lluc monastery. We follow the restored Pilgrims’ Way, which ascends a rugged barranco (gorge) from Biniaraix to Mirador d'Ofre. Also on our itinerary is the spectacular coastal footpath between Cuala Tuent and Mirador de ses Barques. Based at Soller for two nights you may choose to follow delightful footpaths to Deia, or take the vintage tram down to Puerto Soller for a boat trip to the beach of Sa Calobra (below the lofty cliffs which are the habitat of a wide range of seabirds including Eleonora's Falcon) or travel the vintage narrow-gauge railway to Palma de Mallorca and back. Our walking tour is based on three centres, the Santuari (monastery) of Lluc, the cathedral town of Soller and Valldemossa, famous for its Carthusian monastery and for its associations with Chopin and the Austrian Archduke Ludwig.

“Many high points. Accommodations were mostly excellent and the hosts were very welcoming. Missed a couple of turns but notes very good and with the maps could find our way back.”

“The Walk Norway Fjordland Self Guided Walk was excellent. UTracks gave us all the advice necessary to arrive fully prepared to enjoy the experience There were alternatives given for each day to allow for different degrees of difficulty. The accommodation was great-especially the Finse 1222 Hotel where the staff were particularly helpful and welcoming. The walks took us to places we would never normally have access to. We loved every minute.”
