Two week guided walking holiday in Majorca during the autumn and spring. 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. (15 September departure only)

We stay in ensuite twin bedded and single rooms at the friendly one star Hostal Dragonera. Family run and typically Mallorcan in style, this much underrated establishment has a highly recommended restaurant serving traditional local food, a café and sun terrace. You can watch the sun go down from the dining table or go swimming at a beach only 750m away.
Bedrooms include heating and air conditioning. Please note that the single bedded rooms are quite small. Electricity supply is 220v AC and there is free Wi-Fi throughout.
Continental breakfasts and dinners are included in the holiday charge. Lunches are not included.
Please note: The tap water is safe to drink but the taste is variable. Bottled water is readily available to buy locally.
The family run Hotel Marina is situated in front of a small beach in a pedestrianised area. Its splendid terrace makes an ideal setting for a lovely relaxed breakfast with magnificent views of the bay. At night, surrounded by candlelight, this terrace provides the perfect location for a night of gentle music and conversation. The completely renovated hotel has Wi-Fi, reception area, bar and a lounge with satellite television and video.
Note: As the Hotel Marina is in a pedestrian area you will need to be able to carry your luggage a short distance to the hotel as the coach will not be able to stop directly outside. Due to the layout of the hotel, group accommodation may be widely spread throughout the complex.
** During busy periods, some of the rooms may be situated in the annexe next to the hotel and these rooms will not have mountain or sea views.
