It is possible to find different levels of hiking at Majorca, as well as assorted organized groups in which guides make a very good job to help guests. But there is also the chance to walk by your own since there are many marked routes, in fact hikers may walk the Tramuntana Mountain Range following the different stages of the GR-221 and GR-222, from the North to the South, although there are many other routes outside these two.
Two of the areas where hikers find their paradise in Majorca are Alcudia and Santa Ponsa. Let’s start by Alcudia.
On the one hand, Alcudia is in the North of the island, 45 min. driving from the Airport. It is considered a main spot for Nordic Walking, in fact, the first Nordic Walking park in Spain was created there. Many routes are concentrated in this area, although mountains are not so high the scenery is lovely.
