‘La Luminosa’, the enlightened, is the Spanish name for Majorca. The largest of the Balearic islands has many hidden secrets and shows them off to her best advantage. Explore the tranquil core of Majorca the wild Serra de Tramuntana with walking paths over rocks and past scattered, sun-drenched oaks. Across olive groves to picturesque villages with manor houses and castles. Again and again you will enjoy marvellous views of the sea and small islands. Sun, beach, sea and recuperation are the strong points of the idyllic coastal villages.
Surefootedness and stamina are required for walking times up to 6 hours. You are rewarded by an unusual and beautiful perspective of Majorca. The paths can be rocky therefore sturdy walking boots are necessary.
