Wonderful walking holidays on Mallorca to be enjoyed not endured

Balaeric Outdoor holidays organise top quality guided walking holidays for groups couples and singles to be enjoyed not endured.

As a walking destination, Mallorca is one of the jewells in our crown and it's easy to understand why its one of Europe's best loved walking destinations. The north west of the island, where our holidays take place couldn't be more different from the type of tourism that is sometimes associated with Mallorca. The area where our walking holidays take place is a patchwork quilt of Beautiful mountains, lush green valleys and unspoiled villages. In short, a paradise, only 2 hours flight from the UK.

Our guided walking holidays on Mallorca are a stunning combination of professionally guided walks, top quality accommodation, fabulous food and wine. Most of all however, we believe in having a good time and walking with a smile on our faces.

The walks themselves are around 6 miles in distance and taken to the pace of the slowest in the group. We are not in the "route marching" business and prefer it much more that you enjoy your time with us. Whilst this part of Mallorca is mountainous, we do everything we can to keep steep climbs to a minimum. Where possible, we try to arrive at the high point of a walk by coach and spend the morning either walking along ridges or downhill. Even allowing for this, there is some climbing involved and for this reason, we have 2 guides with us for the whole walk (1 front and 1 back,) plus a driver close by at all times in a recovery vehicle.This is in case somebody needs a lift along the route or we have an injury.It also serves as a great place to store all of the day's drinking water plus tea and coffee.

Our holiday base is The Hotel Marina on The Port of Soller which has been in the same family for over 80 years. The hotel is literally 10 yards from the beach,has a private pool plus a free to use health spa. Whilst positioned at the quiet end of the port, it is only a short walk from from the up market shops, bars and restaurants in the area.The staff at the hotel pride themselves on their professionalism and friendliness, which is something often commented upon by our Mallorca walking guests.All of our couples walking holiday guests enjoy a sea facing bedroom with spectacular views along with a private balcony from which to enjoy them. Our singles guests stay in the charming Hotel anex, just next door to the main hotel and pay no single supplement over and above the holiday price.

Most people tell us that our food and wine is the best they've ever experienced as part of an activity holiday and that we could almost sell ourselves as a walking/gastronomic experience. Whilst we wouldn't go that far, we do spend a lot of time researching this aspect of the holiday and during your week with us, you'll enjoy 6 wonderful meals at 6 local restaurants. All of the wine that you need plus a drink on arrival is included.

Here's a list of everything that's included in the holiday price:

  • 7night's bed and breakfast at the wonderful Marina Hotel
  • 6 fabulous meals with wine included
  • 5 fully guided walks with complete backup
  • All required transport for the week, including airport transfers
  • Private charter boat trip to start of 1 walk (weather permitting)
  • All required drinking water
  • Tea, Coffee and biscuits during each walk
  • Use of walking sticks for the week
