Our holiday walking grades


Grade 4

Full and half day walks at a moderate pace over hilly terrain.

Most of these holidays have an element of sightseeing as well.

Half day walks will probably involve about 3 hours of walking, with full day walks having around 5 hours. Expect ascents and descents of up to 600m.

Grade 6

Full day walks with appreciable amounts of ascent and descent.

These walks are in more remote areas such as Andorra or northern Portugal.

Similar to Grade 5, but with most of the walks at the upper level of ascent/descent, time and distance.


Holiday Highlights

  • Coastal walks to Cala Tuent and Deia.
  • The spectacular walk down the gorge Es Barranc along the old Pilgrims’ Way.
  • Climbing l’Ofre before the descent down Es Barranc on a Grade 6 walk.
  • Great views from our hotel of the horseshoe bay of Puerto de Soller and Puig Mayor (1400m) the highest peak of Majorca
  • Visit the small traditionally Spanish town of Soller via a three-mile ancient tramway.

If you are looking at this one week holiday why not make your stay two weeks by joining us on San Telmo & Soller.

The mild, dry climate of Majorca makes the island ideal for walking during much of the year. The north-west coast, one of the most dramatic in the western Mediterranean, runs parallel to a range of mountains stretching from San Telmo in the west to the far northeastern tip of the island.

Soak up the Spanish atmosphere by walking the remote paths of the north-west coast of Majorca under the watchful gaze of the Sierra de Tramuntan mountains. Make your way through lush, fertile land through olive, carob and fig groves and smell the sweet tang of citrus orchards as you follow the old pilgrim route down the Es Barranc Gorge or climb the heights of l’Ofre on our higher grade option.

This area of Majorca offers a great variety of scenery and difficulty of terrain which you can explore further with our two leader, two grade options now on every departure. From our resort we can see Puig Mayor (1400m the highest peaks of Majorca. These mountains provide some wonderful walking. Walking inland, passing quaint farmsteads, we can also visit the small town of Soller. Connected to its coastal namesake by a three mile ancient tramway, this attractive town maintains a traditional Spanish feel.

Far from the hustle and bustle of Magaluf the quiet frankly picture perfect port of Puerto de Soller lies on a lagoon where the mountains meet the sea. Despite being a popular resort with tourists, it is a relaxed and unassuming place retaining much of its local character. It is a good starting point for our exploration along the coast and into the mountains where the walks and views are magnificent.

Your Itinerary

Day 1

Welcome to Majorca




Once you have met your leader will transfer to the beautiful coastal town of Puerto de Soller. 

Transfer Time = 1h

Day 2 to 7

Sample Walks Grade 4 & 6


For the next six days we will spend our days walking and sightseeing in the north-west of Majorca around Puerto de Soller. Walks will normally include:

  • Time

    5 hours

  • Distance

    7 miles

  • Ascent/Descent


SÓLLER & THE CAMI DE CASTELLO - This walk explores the wooded terrain overlooking Sóller and gives a good introduction to the local area. In part it follows the Cami de Castello, the ancient pathway between Deia and Sóller. Along the way you will pass lemon and orange trees. The terrain is easy with cobbled paths and gentle tracks and lanes. Most of it is quiet and you will meet few other walkers. After a look round Soller, taxis whisk you back to the Hotel. 

  • Time

    6 hours

  • Distance

    10.5 miles

  • Ascent/Descent


Our Grade 6 walk follows the same route in the morning, but after exploring Soller, the walk continues over the Coll d’en Borrassar to return all the way to the Hotel, making a very satisfying circuit.  

  • Time

    5 hours

  • Distance

    8 miles

  • Ascent/Descent


FORNALUTX & MIRADOR DE SES BARQUES - From Puerto de Soller we take taxis to the small inland town of Sóller where we pick up the GR221, a path which traverses Mallorca from the northwest to northeast corners. We pass through the hamlet of Binibassi before arriving in the charming village of Fornalutx, nestled in the Tranmuntana mountain range and often referred to as the prettiest village in Spain. We continue through olive groves to the viewpoint at the Mirador de Ses Barques with its vista over verdant rolling hills down to Puerto de Sóller and the sea. The views of the Mediterranean stay with us for most of the afternoon as we make our way on foot back to the hotel.

  • Time

    6 hours

  • Distance

    10.5 miles

  • Ascent/Descent


The Grade 6 walk follows a similar route but with the interesting addition of a remote valley above Fornalutx, & a chance to see the “Most Monumental Olive Tree” in Spain 2020!

  • Time

    5.5 hours

  • Distance

    10 miles

  • Ascent/Descent


ES BARRANC - The old pilgrim’s route down the thousand stone steps of Es Barranc is one of the Mediterranean’s most famous walks. We start at a height of 750m close to the Cuber reservoir. From here the track is broad and only gently undulating until it rises to a col from where you can look back over the walk, and onwards to where you are going. Shortly after reaching l’Ofre farm you start the descent of Es Barranc, more a cobbled track than steps. We take it slowly, allowing time to enjoy the views and relish the occasional splash of cold water from the torrent which rushes down the gorge. As the gorge narrows we pass by a series of charming waterslides and cross footbridges surrounded by impressive stone-walled terraces. Eventually we reach the valley floor in Biniaraix from where it is a short walk back to Sóller.

  • Time

    6.5 hours

  • Distance

    11 miles

  • Ascent/Descent


The Grade 6 walk starts in the same place but diverts immediately to include the l’Ofre ridge taking in the three peaks of Sa Rateta, Franquesa and l’Ofre itself, reaching a highpoint of 1113m. We then follow Es Barranc down to Biniaraix. This is Mallorcan mountain walking at its most dramatic however this is definitely at the top of Grade 6 verging on Grade 7 but the views are well worth the effort.

  • Time

    4.5-5 hours

  • Distance

    7 miles

  • Ascent/Descent


CALA DEIA & DÉIA - Today’s walk follows the other section of the Cami de Castello between Sóller and Déia. From the port we climb steadily to a height of some 250m before passing along the well-engineered track, known also as the ‘Pedra En Sec’, or dry stone path. Typical Mallorcan scenery accompanies us all the way – light woodland, olive and fruit groves, with regular views down to the sea. We descend to the bay at Cala Deia, a magical place for a cooling swim, before ascending to the village of Deia itself.

  • Time

    5.5 hours

  • Distance

    10 miles

  • Ascent/Descent


The Grade 6 walk takes a different and rougher walk out to Deia, then returns along the outward grade 4 route described above. A relatively easy day, but delightful and very popular.

  • Time

    5 hours

  • Distance

    7.5 miles

  • Ascent/Descent


CALA TUENT - It is hard to choose the island’s most beautiful walk, but this will always be a contender. We start at the Mirador de Ses Barques at roughly 400m above sea level. We continue through countryside with scatterings of old stone dwellings (cortijos), ancient lichen-covered walls, twisted olive trees and ancient cobbled tracks. We rise to a col, and suddenly the views change, as ahead of us and below lie the blue waters of the Mediterranean. From here our path traverses high above the sea until we drop down to the sandy beach at Cala Tuent.

  • Time

    5.5 hours

  • Distance

    8.5 miles

  • Ascent/Descent


The Grade 6 walkers will start the walk at an earlier point, following a gentle cobbled trail, then picking up the ‘Cami Vell’, part of the ancient pilgrimage route across the island, before joining up with the grade 4 walk above, with an interesting diversion down to an abandoned hydroelectricity station on the coast. Worry not… you will have time to swim on reaching Cala Tuent!

Free Day
Typically during our one week programmes there is a day off and on Majorca there are plenty of options. You could take the classic tram to Soller then the classic train onto Palma for the day, the train journey does take around 1 hour. Locally in Puerto de Soller there are lots of cafes and bars, the beach, shops and bike hire. Local buses are frequent and cheap and can easily take you to explore Déia, Bunyola, Valledemossa or the popular marina town of Port d'Andratx.

Day 8

Final day

It is sadly time to bid farewell to an island we have got to know well as we head to Palma Airport for our return flights to the UK.

Trip Information

All the details you need

Holiday Grade

In Puerto de Soller we operate both Grade 4 and Grade 6. 

Whilst on a Grade 4 walk these can be full or half day walks at a moderate pace over hilly terrain and is likely to include an element of sightseeing as well. Half day walking will probably include about 3 hours of walking, with full days having around 5 hours. Expect ascents and descents of up to about 600m.

Our Grade 6 walks are full days with appreciable amounts of ascent and descent with walks in some remote areas. Paths are mostly good, but there may be some steep and rough ground. Walks will last up to 6 hours and could involve as much as 750m of ascent and descent.

Walks & Excursions

We have been taking groups to Puerto de Soller since the early 1950s and have a wonderful selection of walks. Some of the higher grade walks are across pathless terrain marked only by occasional cairns. Most of the walks either start or finish at our hotel or in nearby Soller with only the Cala Tuent walk requiring transport both ways. This means you can spend more time on foot and less in a coach… which is how it should be!

Two Grades, Two Leaders, Two Walks

On ‘2x Walks, 2x Leaders, 2x Grades’ departures, where we provide two tour leaders and offer a choice of easier or harder walks each day, we hope to be able to accommodate your choice of walk. However, safety considerations do govern the sizes of groups in each walking grade; the minimum number of participants for a guided walk at a given grade and the maximum group size will be as indicated for the walk grade.

On most departures we are able to accommodate most clients' first choice of walk most of the time, however some flexibility and co-operation may be required. In unusual circumstances where a disproportionately high number of clients wish to walk at one grade, for safety reasons, we may not be able to provide you with your choice of walk each day. Although we will endeavour to accommodate as many clients’ choices as possible, it may be necessary for you to switch between higher and lower grade walks during the holiday. Any decision regarding group sizes and the participants in the day’s walking programme rests with our tour leader(s).

For safety reasons the minimum number of participants on a walk will be 4 plus the leader.

Local Transport Costs

All local transport costs in conjunction with the advertised activity programme are included in the holiday cost. There may be occasions where additional visits or excursions are added to enrich your experience, these will be paid for locally by you if you choose to participate. Local transport can be a mix of private hire coaches, taxis, local buses and ferries depending on the itinerary.

Optional Excursions

A range of local excursions and activities may be available to book at your destination through a local operator. We have no involvement in such activities or excursions which are not run, supervised or controlled in any way by us. Your contract will be with the local activity supplier and we accept no responsibility for their actions or omissions.

Spending Money

Holiday Budgeting

When budgeting for your holiday, you will need to consider drinks, any meals not included in the holiday price, non-included entrance fees, optional excursions you may choose to participate in locally and any souvenirs or additional services such as laundry. A general guideline for lunches and drinks is £10-£20 per person per day.

Currency in Spain

The currency in Spain is the euro.

Holiday Currency

In Puerto de Soller there are a number of ATMs just along the promenade from the hotel.


Although entirely at your own discretion, tipping is an important aspect of tourism and hospitality life and expectations are fairly high. In order to simplify tipping, we strongly recommend that you allow your leader to take care of making sure tips are given to hotel and restaurant staff and to local guides and drivers. This will be done using some funds provided by us together with, if you wish, a contribution from you, which he/she will collect during the holiday.

Entry Requirements

General Passport Advice

It is a good idea to carry photocopies of the personal details pages of your passport. Should you lose your passport, this may assist with the issue of replacement documents and your return to your home country.

Passport and visa requirements can change at any time. It is your own responsibility to ensure that you inform yourself from a professionally qualified source on, and comply with, such requirements.

General passport advice for UK nationals on the UK Government website.

FCDO Travel Advice

You must ensure you check all entry requirements in good time by reviewing the official FCDO advice for your destination. Please take time to read and regularly check this website for changes to the entry requirements and any local restrictions.

Proof of Covid-19 Vaccination

You may be required to provide proof that you have been fully vaccinated when travelling or in your destination. Proof of vaccination can either be digital via the NHS app or a printed copy via NHS Hard Copy. We recommend allowing seven working days for your printed copy to arrive. Please note both the NHS app and printed copy are only valid for 30 days.

We anticipate that all travellers will need to be fully vaccinated including the booster jab and to carry proof of this with them at all times. Some indoor venues require, and may ask for proof of vaccination, as well as masks becoming mandatory for indoor public spaces, and we ask you to be prepared for this.

Face Masks

Some airlines or destinations are requiring the wearing of FFP2, FFP3, KN95 or N95 masks without a valve. You should check the FCDO advice for your destination and with your airline before you travel, although you may wish to have one of these masks on hand just in case.

Brexit Passport Advice

If you are planning to travel to an EU country (except Ireland), or Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Andorra, Monaco, San Marino or Vatican City, you must meet the Schengen area rules.

Your passport must meet 2 requirements. It must be:

  • less than 10 years old on the day you enter (check the ‘date of issue’)
  • valid for at least 3 months after the day you plan to leave (check the ‘expiry date’)

The guidance for Schengen border guards may not be updated until the spring of 2022. Until then, for some Schengen countries your passport may need to be less than 10 years old during your whole visit, and the 3 months at the end of your visit may need to be within 10 years of your passport’s issue date.

Check both the issue date and the expiry date in your passport. If you renewed your passport early, extra months may have been added to its expiry date. This could affect the requirement for your passport to be less than 10 years old.

Non British Passport holders should consult the host country’s embassy for applicable passport and visa entry requirements.


Continental breakfasts, including hot items, are taken at the hotel.

Lunches are not included but can be brought daily from shops and bakeries that are very close to the hotels and at little cost.

During your week in Puerto de Soller dinners are taken at the Hotel Marina on three nights from a varied buffet including starters, mains offering vegetarian, fish and meat finishing with a dessert choice and ice cream which can be requested from the waiters.

Your Ramblers Walking Leader on four evenings will take you to a selection of local restaurants giving you a great opportunity to sample the local cuisine.

Please note: The tap water is safe to drink but the taste is variable. Bottled water is readily available to buy locally and is inexpensive.

Footwear & Kit List


Lightweight waterproof walking boots with a good moulded sole (such as Vibram or similar) and a deep tread and which provide ankle support are strongly recommended and may be essential for some walks.

Further Travel Advice

For further advice please visit:

You might wish to take a small bottle of antibacterial hand gel with you for times when you're unable to wash your hands.

Travel Insurance

It is a condition of booking with Ramblers Walking Holidays that you have adequate valid travel insurance. It is your responsibility to arrange appropriate travel insurance and ensure you have read and understood the full terms and conditions of your travel insurance policy to ensure that you are covered for all activities you intend to undertake whilst on the trip, including all optional activities.

Your travel insurance policy must fully cover you for medical expenses and emergency repatriation. Please ensure your policy covers the entire duration of your holiday. If you are walking at altitude please ensure that there is no upper altitude limit which may limit or exclude cover for your trip. Medical and repatriation insurance cover are not mandatory for UK residents who are travelling on trips within the United Kingdom.

Whoever you insure with, please ensure that you take full details, and ideally the policy itself, with you on holiday and provide our tour leader with your insurer's name, the policy number and emergency assistance contact numbers.

Please note that it is very difficult to obtain travel insurance once your holiday arrangements have started.

Covid-19 Cover

If you should have symptoms and test positive for Covid-19 whilst abroad, you may need to stay where you are until you test negative and you may have to seek treatment. We strongly recommend that you take out an insurance policy that covers you for this eventuality.

Looking for travel insurance?

If you have not already arranged cover, please visit SunWorld who offer travel insurance.

SunWorld policies include cover for COVID-19, subject to applicable terms and conditions.


From January 1st, 2021 UK travellers can continue to use their European Heath Insurance Card (EHIC) – which can last up to five years, until its expiry date, to gain access to medical assistance during your holiday. However, you will no longer be covered in Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway or Switzerland. Travellers without a valid EHIC can apply for a new UK Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC), which will replaces the EHIC once it has been phased out. Please note however that the EHIC/GHIC should not be considered a substitute for medical or travel insurance.

Personal Safety

The UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office provides up to date information on security and local laws for travellers, together with current passport and visa information, at Please take a few minutes to look at the current advice on your planned destination.

Please be aware of what's going on around you, take sensible precautions with your credit cards and passport and avoid displays of wealth such as wearing expensive jewellery or watches. Do not carry more cash on you than you will need for each day, and we recommend that a money belt is used.

Cultural Awareness

Responsible Travel

We're committed to ethical tourism in all our destinations. Our holidays are designed for you to discover the essence of the country you are visiting. Travelling in small groups not only gives you an up close and personal experience of your destination, but minimises your impact on the immediate environment. We feel that the most important starting point to protect the environment is to be out in it. For more details visit our website.

The Ramblers Holidays Charitable Trust

Unlike many tour operators we have our own trust through which RWH Travel’s profits are channelled back into a variety of outdoor, walking-related or environmental conservation projects in the UK. The focus of the Trust’s financial support is Britain’s leading walking charity, The Ramblers, and their role in promoting the benefits and importance of walking to the British public. In addition the Trust welcomes applications for small grants from local organisations in the UK who need support for walking-orientated activities. This includes the establishment of footpaths and bridleways, funding for rebuilding bridges and renovating huts, as well as bursary funding for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award for children who could not otherwise afford to do it. Please visit the ‘About Us’ section of our website and click on the Charitable Trust link for more details.

Heart and Sole

We appreciate that we are in a fortunate position to be able to use our profits to help make a difference to people's lives. Heart & Sole is a venture managed by our office staff, whose aim is to reach the heart of the communities in the countries we visit. Through Heart & Sole, we hope to make more of a long term, direct impact to these communities, particularly in less developed countries where even a small amount goes a long way. See our website for more information and details of some of the projects we support.

Staying In Touch

Mobile Phones

Please do provide us with a mobile phone contact number. We will only use this to contact you with important information relating to your holiday arrangements. 

Do keep your mobile phones switched on and readily available when travelling to the airport or if delayed in transit so that we can contact you with any last minute information relating to your travel arrangements.  

As a matter of courtesy, please switch off your mobile phone during walks, or endeavour to minimise its use. Please also try to minimise the use of mobile devices during group meals.
