We can be found for you on site in our hiking shop at the harbour. Here you will find one or the other free space for our hikes at short notice. You should then be flexible in the selection, because the popular hikes are always booked out from home.




Is it possible to rent walking sticks at Mallorca Muntanya?


We have various telescopic poles, which we are happy to rent on site for a small fee. However, these are really limited and therefore it is advisable that you bring your own sticks if you really need them.

Hiking backpack, drinking bottle, at least 1.5-2.0 liters of water, sun protection, headgear, possibly telescopic walking sticks, fruits, biscuits, nuts or energy bars for in between, bubble patches, rain protection. Don't forget your camera for great memories.

And what is very important: Leave a little space in the backpack for the picnic, which is distributed by us in the morning at the starting point. Because everyone has to carry a part of the common picnic, so that we can let ourselves go well in the wild at noon.




When is the best time of year in Mallorca for hiking?


The whole year has its advantages. The almond blossom and the spring-like temperatures in winter, orange scents and sun full in spring, hiking and bathing in summer. The golden light, the warm sea and the "Indian Summer" in autumn. Mallorca offers year-round dreamlike and different hiking experiences.

IN your hiking holiday

How do I get from the airport Palma to Port de Sóller without a car?


By bus (line 1) from the airport to downtown Palma to Placa Spain. From there, you can take the bus from the underground bus station directly to Port de Sóller (line 203 or 204).
Special tip from us: A beautiful and romantic train ride with the famous "Red Train" from Palma to Sóller and from there with the antique tram to Port de Soller.




Where can I find your Mallorca Muntanya hiking shop in Port de Sóller?


We are easily to be found on the harbour promenade. At the circular harbour in the middle, opposite the tourist information, the terminus of the tram – behind it we are!




When should I be at the meeting point?


You should always be on time as indicated in the hiking program. But if you like to be more relaxed, then come 10 minutes before and enjoy the morning by the sea.




At what time do the hikes end?


The time varies depending on the hike and the length of the return journey. Usually between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m.




Which services are included and which are not?


Included services:

Local insurance by AXA, all trips with private minibuses, train and boat trips, local, trained english-speaking mountain tours, finca right-of-way and tolls, local picnics incl. Mallorquin red country wine or hot lunch during the hikes.

Not including services:

In the restaurants, the drinks are not included in the hiking-price.




What happens in bad weather?


The weather in Mallorca is often very different from region to region. We therefore always try to start with the respective hikes in the morning. But if the weather overturned and we can no longer guarantee your safety, then we will of course stop the hike. Since we are at home all over Mallorca, we certainly offer you a creative weather-related alternative, so that even such a day becomes an unforgettable hiking experience.




What are the realities of the hiking trails?


The hiking trails in Mallorca are almost exclusively privately owned and very often stony, sly and covered with cutting grass. Therefore, a firm, well run-in hiking shoe is essential, with a good profile. Telescopic walking sticks are also an advantage.




What is important about altitude anxiety and head of heights?


Almost all hikes are very manageable despite a fear of heights. There are no exposed spots. However, some demanding climbing hikes require a head for heights. Talk to us personally again if you are unsure.




Surely you have some good insider tips for me, don't you?


Yes, of course, as locals we have a lot of interesting information and tips to make your holiday with us an unforgettable experience. Just talk to us on site, because we are happy when you visit us in our hiking shop at the harbour.
