Balearic Outdoor Holidays. To be enjoyed not endured.


Balearic Outdoor Holidays organise high quality, fully guided walking holidays on the Spanish Balearic Islands of Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza for couples, groups or singles. They are a family business of 15 years’ standing and believe in good old fashioned service and going the extra mile to give their guests a great holiday.

Here's a selection of comments from satisfied customers who've joined them during 2019:

“Thank you so much for an absolutely wonderful holiday. I can't remember when I laughed so much or ate and drank so much and the walking wasn't bad either!!!” Janet - Menorca singles walking.

"We both thoroughly enjoyed last week's "walking for softies".  Menorca is such a lovely island, the hotel was great, the group of people were lovely and, as ever, you both looked after us all with efficiency, tact and humour." Judy and Bob - Menorca easy walking.

“As always, I had a brilliant week! It's wonderful being organised and not having to think too much. Ate too much, drank too much, laughed a lot so feeling happy!” Anne -  Menorca Painting.

"One word feedback from an archaeological guinea-pig - brilliant!  You may quote me. Thanks again for usual J&C not-to-be-bettered week." Bron -  Menorca Archaeology.

"I just want to say a huge thank you to you for last week. Katie was fabulous, an excellent tutor and such a lovely young lady. The bite size Spanish activities were just right (not too much to get your head round) and the walks were comfortable and interesting." Kim - Learn Spanish walking

"Thank you again for another fabulous week, can’t believe the weather yet again, plus a very nice group of fellow walkers." Roger and Penny - Menorca New Year walking.

“Many thanks for the excellent Mallorca walking holiday last week. So well organised, superb locations and so caring for all our various needs! A lasting memory until the next trip to a Balearic Walking Holiday – you even arranged great weather, marvellous for March!” Nigel and Jane - Mallorca easy walking.

"Just a quick thank you for a really wonderful holiday. We totally enjoyed the whole experience. Lovely walks, great company and probably the best restaurants and food you've treated us to." Brian and Dorothy - Best of Mallorca.

"A church, stalactites and stalagmites, classical concert on a lake, boat trip into a cave, dolphins, a converted railway line, paella, numerous stories, loads of laughs and the odd bit of walking thrown in too." Trevor and Mandy - Mallorca couples walking.

If you'd like to discover what keeps people returning to holiday with us time after time, drop us an email or if you'd like to speak with an actual human being, please call 0800 072 4832.
