Mallorca´s Mountain Goats

Mallorca´s Mountain Goats are ready to meet you !

Autumn through to Spring is the best time to get on the move in Mallorca´s mountains, clear days, mild temperatures and the freshest of fresh air.

And you might even get to meet a few interesting inhabitants along the way!

Goats in the Tramuntana

Like one of Mallorca´s mountain goats who are exceptionally nimble. There is a good chance you will see them leaping from crag to rocky crag and even climbing trees. By the time your camera is out they are often gone!

Majorca´s Tamuntana mountain goats have learned to work hard for a meal. There isn’t much about on these rugged slopes , so its stretch or starve.

Walking in the Tramuntana Mountains - Mountain Goats

We are very lucky on Mallorca to have a myriad of walks on offer, from coastal paths offering views of crystal clear coves to forest walks and big mountain summit climbs, giving you breathtaking vistas to reward you for all your hard work.

As well as mountain goats, you may also spot one of Mallorca’s rare black vultures! These magnificent creatures can often be seen circling and gliding on the mountain thermals looking for lunch.

Black Vulture - Hiking in Mallorca

If you are new to hill-walking,  then you could start on on Mallorca´s lower mountain slopes of Serra de Llevant in the east of the island 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 such as Mallorca Hiking who offer many years of experience 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 and routes are clearly marked with wooden sign posts so hopefully you won´t get lost!
