  • Full Itinerary
  • Pssst… we have a secret. The true beauty of Mallorca is actually hidden to most tourists, who spend all their time on the busy beaches that everyone knows. Instead of following the crowds, we’re keeping it super-local on this Mallorca tour that shows you where to find the real beauty that only locals know. Tag along as we trek out to a unique corner of the island, far beyond the massive beaches of the south.

    We meet in town, then take a comfortable public bus to reach the beginning of our walk. From there, the trail we follow is a historical path, once used by postmen to go from one village to another. As we walk, learn about native Mediterranean plants, and stop to admire the panoramic view from a mountaintop. We land in the historic village of Serra Tramuntana and discover Arabic influences in the local architecture and agricultural traditions.

    We then arrive at a hidden beach — well, hidden to the tourists, that is! Locals love to go here, and we join them as we soak up the sun and sea, and then dig into a delicious lunch of typical Mallorcan food and drinks, such as empanadas and cocas de trampò. We also enjoy some delicious desserts such as ensaimada or a gatò with almonds… delicious! All of these treats come from the village’s historic bakery, and locals love them — so we’re pretty sure you’ll love them, too!

    In the summer months, you can work off your lunch with a dip in the sea; in winter, just lie out in the sun and soak up that easy Mediterranean vibe.

    In the afternoon, we board the bus to take us back into Palma, where you’re free to explore on your own.

    Please note that we have classed the hike part of this tour with a ‘medium’ difficulty level. It takes approximately three hours (including stops) and is a total of 10 kilometres long, with elevations of 300 metres up and almost 400 metres down.

    A wonderful hike in the hills with Damia. He had amazing knowledge of local history and culture and it made for such an interesting day. The food he brought was delicious and the scenery was spectacular. Highlight of my trip.

    My trip with Marialaura exceeded my expectations. It was absolutely incredible! The hike may have been the best part of my whole vacation. Marialaura was such a delight, she is such a kind, warm, and wonderful person. She is so passionate about what she does, and she truly made this an experience I will never forget. If given the chance, I would do it again, hands down.

    Mr. Robert S. from United Kingdom travelled on 17 Feb 2017:

    An enjoyable, interesting walk from Esporles to Banyalbafur sampling local delicacies: coca de verdures, empanadas and gato on the way. In spite of the drizzle the walk was a pleasure and brightened up by Marialaura’s enthusiastic commentary and passion for Majorca. She adapted to the variety of ages in our small group. accommodating to our needs and was very knowledgable about Majorca in general sharing her infectious enthusiasm with us.
