Requirements / equipment list / organization:
The hiking trails in Mallorca are almost exclusively privately owned and very often stony & boulder and overgrown with cutting grass.
Good fitness, health, and surefootedness, as well as proper weather clothing, are therefore important requirements. Sturdy hiking shoes with a good profile, backpack, water bottle, sun cap, and rain protection are required. Telescopic hiking sticks are an advantage.
The picnic for on the go sometimes has to be carried in the backpack yourself. Only free Mallorcan red country wine is offered for the picnics. You have to bring your own drinks, fruit, and biscuits in between.
The focus of our program is: Enjoying and experiencing the landscape, having fun and enjoying hiking, gaining knowledge about flora and fauna, gaining fascinating experiences about the country and its people, and finally getting a taste of the culinary highlights of simple, genuine Mallorcan cuisine.
The hiking guide reserves the right to make the necessary changes to the hike in case of bad weather. If the hikes are canceled due to the weather, the money will be refunded immediately. You can check the weather forecast here.
