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 2017:

"I would just like to say how much I enjoyed the week in Menorca and you very quickly became more like family friends than a tour company. You both have the patience of saints and a willingness to go the extra mile both literally and figuratively". Louise...Menorca singles walking, May.

"Thank you for a really wonderful week on Menorca. It really was perfect. We so enjoyed everything, the walks, the group, the hotel and your superb faultless organization taking care of our every need. Your attention to detail is second to none". Caroline and Duncan...Menorca couples walking, May

"I would like to express my thanks for really fantastic holiday with you in March. It really was one of my best, a combination of very good company, your usual faultless hospitality, great hotel and lots of sunshine. All contributed to a great time, as usual, you made sure that the holiday was a special time for everyone". Doreen...Small group Spring walking on Mallorca, March.

"What a lovely week of walking and great to see you both again. I thoroughly enjoyed the week and so the usual thanks to you both for all of the efforts you put in to making it all such fun". Rosemary...Singles walking on Mallorca, October.
