Autumn through to Spring is the best time to get on the move in Mallorca´s mountains, clear days, even temperatures and not the burning heat of the Summer months.
If you want to see one of Mallorca´s mountain goats, then you really need to have your hiking boots in your luggage. These mountain goats have learned to work hard for a meal. There isn’t much about on these rugged mountains, so its stretch or starve.
We are very lucky on Mallorca to have a myriad of walks on offer, from coastal paths offering views of crystal clear coves, forest walks and big mountain summit climbs, giving you a vista to reward you for all your hard work.
As well as a mountain goat you might even be lucky enough to spot one of Mallorca’s rare black vultures!
If you are new to all this, then you could start on on Mallorca´s lower mountain slopes of Serra de Llevant in the east or, if you are ready for a challenge, then head straight to the Tramuntana mountain range in the northwest.
There are numerous guide books available, walking companies offering guided walks and the Consell de Mallorca website is a font of information.
The Government has invested huge sums of money in recent years making sure paths are kept-up in mallorca´s mountains by negotiating with landowners to get access and marking routes clearly with wooden sign posts so hopefully you won´t get lost!
In the walking section, on the ´To do ´ pages I will journal walking ideas for you, in various categories so that you can decide in advance whether or not to pack those boots whatever the Mallorcan weather.
So why not have a look at the ´Sleep` section and choose yourself a hotel, then click ´Book me a room´ and come and have a wander around this beautiful island. You never know you might just spot one of those mountain goats.
