We went from Valldemossa to Deia. Not the best signs so it was Easy to get a little lost trying to find the way down to Deia. Beautiful views, will definately go again.

There are a few routes up to the top when you start in Valldemossa. The most straight forward and popular is to simply follow the direct path which is clearly signposted. It is very wooded with few options to see anything but gets you to...More

You need to notify the rangers of the Muntanya de Voltor to access the path. It is easy to find on line. Generally well marked but one path between Mirador de sea Basses and the Cova des'Ermita Guiem took a bit of finding. Once you...More

Update March 2017: walk from Valdemossa to Deia is possible avoiding the private property on west side of mountain. New Alpina 1:25k map marks the route as GR221. We did circular walk today from Valdemossa up the Coma des Cairats. We descended through the western...More
