This holiday is a combination of our one week holiday in San Telmo and our one week holiday in Puerto de Soller
Experience a two week guided walking holiday in Majorca during the autumn and spring with Ramblers Walking Holidays. Enjoy walks from our centres in San Telmo and Puerto de Soller.
San Telmo is a quiet, attractive settlement on the south-west corner of Majorca overlooking the island of Dragonera. Here the Sierra Tramuntana mountain range meets the sea, walking is possible directly from the hotel and a good local bus service allows us to also explore further afield.
The tree-covered hills surrounding the bay spread northwards and along the coast to meet the mountains of western Majorca. There are splendid rambles and walking up into the hills around S’Arraco. Although in general paths are often stony, rough and steep, the pace will be unhurried. Efforts are rewarded by fine views across the hills and along the coast and you’ll frequently be amazed at the fantastic seascapes. An excursion can be made to Valldemossa and a day may be spent in Palma, both conveniently served by local buses. When the weather is fine, the sandy beach at San Telmo is just right for a swim.
Avoiding the bustle of the hottest summer months, Puerto de Soller in Majorca provides an ideal base for the second week of our walking holiday; we’ll walk both on the coast and in the mountainous hinterland. The landlocked bay gives the appearance of a placid lake, and our hotel is on the sea front only yards from a small beach.
Puig Mayor (1400m) and Teix, are the two highest peaks of the west coast Sierra de Tramuntana range. These mountains, which largely separate the Soller area from the rest of Majorca, and their foothills, provide some wonderful walking and rambling, such as the route which follows an old Pilgrims’ Way; passing through olive groves and quaint farmsteads, it is particularly beautiful.
This area of Majorca offers a great variety of scenery and difficulty of terrain - all within the walking grade. The beautiful landscapes and Spanish atmosphere are there to be enjoyed. We explore the mountains, villages and coast on good paths and tracks. For anyone wishing to see more of the island, a number of excursions are possible.
The ‘2x Leaders/2x Grades’ is only available during the week in Soller
