A different way of getting to know Mallorca is on foot. You can walk around the different municipalities or go into the countryside. For the second option, we suggest five hiking routes so that you can get to know the island's beautiful landscape.
Main hiking routes
Not everyone prefers to relax; there are those who opt for active tourism. Trekking enthusiasts are sure to enjoy any of the following hiking routes. You'll have a hard time deciding which one to start with!
Estellencs cove and village. This route starts in the old center of this beautiful town and heads towards the cove. Along the way you can see the tower of Tem Alemany and the church of Saint Joan Baptista. You will be struck by the fortified appearance of the latter. Next, head down towards the sea along a slightly winding road, close to a residential tourist complex. If the weather is good, take the opportunity to go for a swim. To return, you only have to pass through the same places you left.
Puig de Sant Martí from Alcúdia. On this hiking route we invite you to discover the Mallorcan mountains, specifically the mountain of Puig de Sant Martí. The starting and finishing point is the Plaça de la Porta de Mallorca in Alcúdia. Continue along the Església or Pla d'en Beltran path, which runs parallel to the road to Mallorca. After 20 minutes you will have to cross the Puig Road, pass a petrol station and reach the roundabout on the new road. You will see a pine forest on the left and continue along the Camí del Poble Nou. After 20 minutes, take the turning to the left that will take you to the top. To return, just retrace your steps to the crossroads, cross the Murterar road, go down towards the roundabout on the Bellevue Road, then Pere Mas i Reus and finally the Puig Road to reach the starting point.
Maristel-la Hermitage and Sa Fita del Ram. This is a medium-difficulty climb. But it is worth it for the viewpoint at the top. From it you can contemplate the bay of Palma and the surrounding mountains. The route, which is about 6 km long, starts in Esporles and heads towards the Maristel-la hermitage and the Fita del Ram.
Camí de l'Arxiduc. This is the most frequented path by active tourists visiting Mallorca. This popular path was laid out in 1883 by Archduke Ludwig Salvator of Austria. The route is of medium difficulty and lasts almost six hours. But it is not signposted. This route starts in Valldemossa and passes through Pla des Pouet, the Ses Puntes viewpoint and Talaia Vella. The latter was the refuge of the Archduke. You will also pass Puig de Caragolí, Pas de'n Miquel and Puig des Teix. The last place will be the Refugi des Cairats, from where you return to the start of this hiking route. Don't forget to enjoy the various viewpoints along the way.
From Deià to Cala Deià. You will find Deià on the west coast of Mallorca in the Serra de Tramuntana. This route is perfect for families with children. The start of the route is in Es Clot Street at number 5, near the Refugi de Can Boi. Once there, just follow the signs until you reach the cove. Here you can enjoy the scenery and a good meal and then continue along the road until you find a sign indicating the way back to Deià.
All these hiking routes are circular so that you can reach the point where you left your car. This way you will arrive earlier to rest in your room in our Flamboyan-Caribe hotel. We will have everything ready for your return.
