Happy Tracks Hiking & Canyonning Holidays, Mallorca

Specialising in 6 day hiking & canyoning holidays with accommodation

This independent hiking and canyoning company are based in Mallorca during the spring and autumn months which are the best seasons for these outdoor activities on this beautiful island.

Happy Tracks is run by Anja and Raphi, two fully qualified experienced enthusiastic mountaineers who speak fluent English. They believe that their close friendship, strong passion for the outdoors and extensive mountain experience makes them the perfect team and they love sharing this passion with their guests! 

Tramuntana 6 day Hut to Hut Trek
Join them for a 6-day hike across the most beautiful part of the Tramuntana mountain chain which is located in the quiet and untouched part of Mallorca. The trek starts in Estellencs passing Esporles, Deia, Puerto Soller, Tossals until you reach Pollença in the north of the island. You can either choose to stay in traditional mountain refuges or more comfortable guesthouses (special offer available for this type of accommodation).

This hike offers a great variety of landscapes, high mountains, beautiful lonesome beaches and rural fishing villages. The delicious Mallorcan kitchens will spoil you with fresh fish, Paella, Tapas and other culinary delights. Orange and lime trees not just look beautiful in their natural environment but also taste delicious and refreshing! In the limestone formations, you will find numerous caves and steep cliffs that drop off into the sea - these provide great cliff jumping opportunities for adrenaline junkies.

Canyoning and Torrent des Pareis Scrambling Adventures 
Join Happy Tracks on an adventurous day out and explore one of the numerous deep canyons or challenge yourself scrambling down the impressive dry gorge “Torrent de Pareis”.

Canyoning is a combination of climbing, abseiling swimming, cliff jumping and water sliding and a great activity not just for adrenaline junkies but also for those who like to explore places not many people have been before. Equipped with a wetsuit helmet and harness you are ready for an unforgettable adventure. 
The company offers canyoning half and full day trips for every level (beginner, intermediate; expert) or even multiple day canyoning finca holidays. 

The Torrent des Pareis is an impressive mostly dry gorge starting from a fairly high altitude and finishing at the famous, beautiful Sa Calobra beach. Join a guided group and hike down the gorge until you reach the sea where you can go for a rewarding swim. This adventurous hike involves some fun scrambling over big boulders and short abseils and you will be surrounded by huge walls with some spectacular limestone formations. 

What to see

An example itinerary of their Tramuntana Dry Stone Trekking trip:

Day 1: From Estellencs to Esporles - 5 hours, 15km, 720m ascent, 690m descent
On an old post trek you will walk along olive terraces and oak trees until you reach Esporles. Until the 19th century this rough and rocky path used to be the main connection between Banyalbufar and Esporles. Ruinous stone walls remind of the old boundaries of the country estates. The 500 vertical metre climb is worth the effort as you will get rewarding views over the Tramuntana peaks and the coastline.

Day 2: From Esporles to Deia - 7 hours, 19km, 1090m ascent, 1090m descent
You will hike on a small path which was only used by shepherds, hunters and coal miners in the past. This stage leads through the south-west part of the Serra de Tamuntana and through the beautiful village Valdemossa which is famous for its vineyards. After a wine tasting stop, you will climb a steep and rocky path to the pass, followed by a long descent through beautiful oak woods and meadows. After 7 hours we will reach the charming village Deia.

Day 3: From Deia to Puerto de Soller - 3 hours, 10km, 250m ascent, 320m descent
This is the easiest and shortest stage. An old, beautiful trail passes traditional houses and a church from the 19th century until you reach Soller. You will arrive in Soller in the early afternoon so that you can have enough time to stroll along the beach or visit the marketplace, not to mention the numerous bars and restaurants.

Day 4: From Puerto de Soller to Refugio Tossals - 8 hours, 29km, 930m ascent, 530m descent
After a relaxed hike the previous day you have the longest and toughest stage ahead of you! You have the opportunity to visit the two small and cultural villages Binibassi and Biniaraix. On exposed and steep trails you will climb an altitude of nearly 1000m! From here you can see down to Palma and almost over the entire island! With a bit of luck you will be able to spot an eagle or falcon. Orange and lemon trees will accompany you on your way down to the Refugio Tossal.

Day 5: From Refugio Tossals to Lluc - 6 hours, 16km, 880m ascent, 870m descent
From the refuge you will have the opportunity to climb the second highest mountain of Mallorca. Breath-taking views over the sea and the Cuber dam will be your reward! On a sandy, windy path you head down to the impressive monastery which is located at the entrance of the village Lluc where you spend the night.

Day 6: From Lluc to Pollença - 5 hours, 17km, 150m ascent, 650m descent
Day 6 of the Ruta de Pedra en Sec will be the last but very beautiful walk. You will walk through an oak forest with trees that are more than 100 years old and will see all the impressive peaks of the Tramuntana chain one last time. After 5 hours you will reach your final destination Pollença.
