Soak up the local character as you relax with a glass of wine on the hotel terrace in Puerto Soller on Majorca, overlooking the lagoon where the mountains meet the sea. As the sun begins to set, the view is dominated by Puig Major and Teix, the two highest peaks of the west coast Sierra de Tramuntana range – walking through the foothills is a feast for the senses as you make your way through lush, fertile land planted with olive, fig, carob and citrus.
Picnic on the uninhabited nature reserve of Dragonera Island, off San Telmo. It’s a well-deserved treat after your adventures on the Archduke’s Trail, where the terrain is challenging, but the spectacular seascapes and sense of achievement are well worth it.
Immerse yourself in island life on Minorca. Explore rugged coves and sandy beaches, pre-historic standing stones, untouched rural tranquillity. Discover the charms of the capital, Mahon, a fascinating mix of ancient and modern, with its Georgian-style architecture, a British legacy. Rummage in the old-fashioned shops – you’re sure to bag a bargain.
A wealth of walking awaits you in the beautiful varied landscapes of the Balearic Islands. Let us introduce you on a Ramblers Walking Holiday.
