Once the summer season is over, Mallorca becomes a hive of activity for not only those clad in lycra cycling gear but also for ramblers, climbers and deep water soloists. The dramatic Serra de Tramuntana mountain range in west Mallorca and the more modest Serra de Llevant mountains in the east see more walkers each year, so grab those hiking boots from the cupboard and given a quick dust-off before packing your bags to visit the island.
Even if walking and hiking in Mallorca have become more popular in recent years, most paths and routes are still very quiet so you often feel like you have the whole place to yourself. It may be that you only have to share the views with a couple of mountain goats! There are relatively easy paths suitable for beginners, whilst other hiking trails take you to the five summits that reach over 1000m, perfect for keen walkers looking for a challenging route.
The best time for hiking is probably autumn, spring or late summer when the temperatures are slightly cooler and the crowds have disappeared. Spring is also a wonderful time to walk through the countryside when flowers and greenery fill the landscapes. Late summer and autumn may not be so green but it is still warm enough for a swim should you happen to come across a hidden bay.
The Regional Government have invested a great deal of money in developing trails to make walking in Mallorca much more accessible. Many paths that exist already are marked out with wooden sign posts every few kilometres. You do have to watch where you are going when walking in Mallorca, as some 800 years ago the entire island was claimed as private property and, although many paths are accessible to the public, some areas are split by gates or fences that must be closed behind you. Please do not trespass if there are clear signs not to do so!
