The Serra de Tramuntana has an extensive network of trails. Some hiking trails run along the old connecting paths between the villages. They date from the Arab period (1000 years ago) and are partly paved with stone. Others follow the charcoal burner paths and old mule tracks to remote farms or watchtowers. The GR221 or “Pedra en Sec – Route of Dry Stone Walls” leads over more than 160 km of old cobblestone streets that used to connect villages and properties on the mountain.

The “GR221 – ALPIN” program is aimed at “mountaineers” among hikers. Not only because of the length and height desnivels of the routes, but also because of the nature of the paths. Some sections require the use of hands and even ropes, such as in the Torrente de Pareis. Many of the paths are “only” paths that lead us over stones or rocks for a long time. The descent from “Puig de Massanella”, for example, has no signs and is “only” marked with cairns. This program requires a good level of fitness and some hiking experience.
