OCTOBER 15 - 22 - MALLORCA, THE WILD SIDE OF THE BALEARIC ISLANDS

Details

Backabush is heading to the Mediterranean Sea to hike the Tramuntana Mountains of Mallorca!

Mallorca, also called Majorca, is the largest island in it's group and is considered to be the crown jewel of Spain’s Balearic Islands. Known for its beautiful coastline, secluded coves, limestone mountains, Spanish architecture, wineries and fresh produce farms, and stunning beaches.

For hikers the main attraction is the dramatic mountains skirting the length of Mallorca’s northern coast, known as the Serra de Tramuntana. Running almost 90 kilometres and with numerous peaks over a kilometre high, the whole range has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site for its historical, cultural, and environmental importance. Aside from the sweltering heat of the summer months, visitors can expect to enjoy mild weather and good amounts of sunshine making the mountains a paradise for hiking!

Our newly refurbished four-star hotel is located on the seafront of the stunning Santa Ponça beach and offers easy access to the mountain trails. The hotel's main attractions include a large swimming pool and sun lounger area, a restaurant, Snack Bar and Chill-Out terrace with infinity pool. Buffet breakfasts and all our delicious evening meals are included. In the evenings we can also check out some of the popular bars in the local town. We have the following room options:

Shared Twin Room - £569
Private Single Occupancy Room - £719

From our base on the coast we will be well placed to reach the best of the hikes in the Tramuntana Mountains and can easily travel to many of the unmissable hiking highlights of the island. It goes without saying that a mountain range this huge is going to provide some incredible views, but it’s hard to imagine just how spectacular they are until you see them with your own eyes.

Come and join us this October for a welcome break from the autumn gloom to enjoy some superb hiking and sunshine in Mallorca!

This trip does not involve technical mountaineering but the hikes on the island can be quite challenging so you need to have a good level of hiking fitness. A head for heights is also necessary in the mountainous terrain.
