Fincas of Majorca

The perfect island for a walking holiday

Majorca, away from the tourist hotspots, boasts a multitude of charming places waiting to be explored. Nestled in tranquil settings, one stylish 'Finca' (country house) follows another, many of which come complete with inviting swimming pools in their gardens.

Prepare to be captivated by a week filled with hiking adventures along enchanting routes, along secluded trails amidst marvelous natural landscapes. Stylish and cozy Finca-hotels promise rejuvenating nights, and their garden pools and serene corners offer a perfect escape from everyday life. In the evenings, savour the delights of typical Mallorquin cuisine in a comfortable atmosphere. This hiking tour beautifully showcases the island's diversity in the sun.

On one hand, you'll discover the sparsely populated north, offering bewitching coastal views and turquoise bays. On the other, the rugged "Serra de Traumenta" might make you feel like you're in the Alps. The delightful village of Orient will enchant you with its apple, almond, and olive orchards, as well as grazing flocks of sheep. Throughout your journey, expect dreamlike panoramic views of the stunning west coast and the Tramuntana mountains until you reach the hiking paradise of Sóller.
