Mallorca at your feet

Mallorca is the ideal hiking destination. Pleasant temperatures, varied scenery and a high mountain range that has been designated a UNSECO World Heritage Site. All this makes the island the perfect starting point for coastal tours with breathtaking sea views, leisurely walks through orange groves and summit climbs at 1,300 metres above sea level.

Randa monasteries and the best panoramic view of the island

Distance: 6.7 kilometers (both ways)
Duration: approx. 2 hours (both ways)
Difficulty level: easy

Between Llucmajor and Algaida lies the monastery mountain "Puig de Randa", next to the monastery of Lluc the second most important pilgrimage site on Mallorca. Two monasteries cling to the slopes of the mountain, which is just over 500 metres high, like swallows' nests; the third is directly on the summit and offers probably the most spectacular panoramic view of the entire island. The six-kilometre serpentine road from the tranquil mountain village of Randa to the summit is very popular with cyclists. But the "ascent" of the monastery mountain is also fun on foot, has something spiritual about it and only requires a basic level of fitness.


You can park in Randa, opposite the church. The summit road leads through the village, we keep to the right and walk along the traffic-calmed path, past the old washing place to the end of the village. Only a few metres after that, a trail leads right into the bushes and parallel to the road along a dry river slightly upwards. In high season, when there are many cars on the road, I recommend this quieter path. Otherwise, you can also follow the road until you reach the first monastery.

A detour leads to the Santuari de Nostra Senyora de Gracía. It nestles against the steep face like a swallow's nest. The sanctuary can be visited. A restaurant provides refreshment.


Back on the main road, the path on the right leads up to the second monastery, a hermitage that is not completely open to the public. Only the small church can be visited. Outside there is a picnic area and plenty of shade with a view of the south coast.

Continue back to the main road and always follow the stone pyramids marking trails beside the road. The shortcut helps to shorten the way.

The third monastery, Santuari de Nostra Senyora de Cura, is the lookout magnet with a museum, hostel and restaurant. Mallorca is at your feet. Soak in the breathtaking view of the peaks of the Tramuntana over Palma, Es Trenc and Alcudia. Return the same way.

Hiking & Speedboat: From Puerto de Andratx to Sant Elm

Distance: 9 kilometers (one way)
Duration: approx. 3 hours (one way)
Difficulty level: medium

The tour from the hip yacht harbour Puerto de Andratx to the quaint fishing village Sant Elm offers spectacular sea views all the way across to Ibiza if the weather is good. You can return by speedboat (in summer), bus or on foot along the same route.

The entrance is at the Hotel Mont Port, where an asphalt road leads up in serpentines. Then the forest path starts and runs steadily uphill. You can see the radio tower in the distance. Once you reach the tower, stone pyramids point the trail to the right, which leads to a pass.

The highest point of the tour has now been reached and Sant Elm and the island of Dragonera lie at your feet. The sleeping dragon, as the uninhabited nature reserve island of Sa Dragonera with its numerous lizards and three lighthouses is called.

The descent is initially along a narrow path that leads to a wider path, which you follow to the left. Now always turn right at major junctions, stone pyramids point the way downhill to Sant Elm with its fine sandy beach and restaurants right by the sea.

Oranges, lemons & Co .: An easy hike in the orange valley

Distance: 11 kilometers (circular route)
Duration: approx. 3 hours (circular route)
Difficulty level: Easy

Experience Mallorca with all your senses: smell, touch and taste lemons. This circular route leads through some of the most beautiful villages in Mallorca and along lemon and almond plantations. The hike is also suitable for families.


Start in Sóller, the main town in the orange valley and home of the popular railway of the same name. The small shopping street leads to the traditional olive mill Can Det and on to the romantic village of Biniaraix, surrounded by fragrant orange plantations. At the old washing place, a hiking sign leads uphill towards Fornalutx. 

The road winds in serpentines through olive groves and offers views of Puig Major, with 1,445 metres of altitude the highest peak in Mallorca. You look back at the orange valley, spot the striking silhouette of the church of Sóller in the distance and soon start the descent to Fornalutx. Fornalutx is one of the most beautiful villages of Mallorca. Enjoy a snack in the market square and you will understand why. Through narrow alleys adorned with flowers and orange groves, you return to Sóller on the opposite side of the mountain.
