Overview
Escape the hustle and bustle of Palma on a day’s excursion in the Mallorcan countryside. Hike along historic trails, explore a rural village, and discover a hidden beach, while gaining insight into traditional Mallorcan life from your guide. Make the most of your day with an authentic, locally sourced lunch included, and unwind with a dip in the ocean or a lounge on the beach.
Highlights
  • Discover the history of rural Mallorca from your local guide
  • Travel by local bus for insight into real island life
  • Escape the crowded beaches with a visit to a secluded shore
  • Enjoy an authentic, locally sourced picnic lunch included in the price
What to Expect
Meet your guide on Plaza Espana in Palma and board the local bus (fare included) that will take you to the starting point for your hike. As you’ll be walking natural terrain, it’s advisable to wear comfortable footwear, and pack your swimsuit for a dip in the sea. On arrival, leave the bus and begin your gentle hike along a mountain trail, admiring the landscape and discovering its history and biogeography from your guide as you stroll. Reach the village of Serra de Tramuntana, and explore with your guide to learn more about its Arabic influences and rural traditions. Head to a secluded beach, popular with locals. Here, pause for an authentic Mallorcan lunch of empanadas and cocas de trampó (flatbread with vegetables), followed by pastries like gató and ensaimadas. Relax with a swim in the Mediterranean or sunbathe on the shore, before catching the local bus back into Palma, where your tour concludes.

I very much enjoyed my time with Helena during the hike. The hike was a workout at the beginning and the end--you may want to do some incline walking on the treadmill to practice if like me, you're a little out of shape! I also appreciated that Helena helped me get a cab back

Great day out. Group size was 5 people. Our guide Carmen, a native Mallorcan, was absolutely lovely! We took the bus to a village, hiked for about 10km, ate delicious fruits and foods picked up earlier in the market and bakery than walked down to the blue clear water for a swim.

Hello Dorota, I am glad you enjoyed the hike and thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review so other people may get to know us. I am sorry it wasn't good enough for a 5 star review, but we will definitely work on the feedback you have given us in order to improve! The beach, as the tour description and as mentioned at the beginning of the activity at the bus station is a pebble beach. Natural sandy beaches as we said are found in the south and east side of the island, but we choose hiking in the north-west so we can walk through the spectacular Sierra de Tramuntana, and visit a coastal area where locals would go. As per the transport, we offer private transfers in our private tours if the customer prefers it, but in our public join-ins we have opted to take the public bus as it's a very efficient service, and the tour can be as sustainable and affordable as possible. We would definitely be looking at the way we communicate our product and the timings for the different parts of the tour to avoid misunderstandings. Thanks again, and I hope you had a nice weekend in our little island :) Carmen

The walk itself is gorgeous, and the beach at the end is incredible (even for a novice swimmer like me). Helena was an amazing guide, full of knowledge and very accommodating of any and all requests. Thankyou very much! Best wishes, Jordan
