Mallorca Walking Holiday..
Walking in Mallorca is a fantastic experience. Away from the bay of Palma, Majorca is a beautiful unspoilt island, offering opportunities for gentle coastal walks as well as more energetic walks in the hills and mountains. The landscape offers treasures, such as medieval villages and spectacular views over the Mediterranean coastline. Flora and fauna abound. This is a two centre holiday with 2 leaders. We spend 4 nights in Port de Soller and 3 nights in the fabulous monastery at Lluc in the mountains. The average maximum daily temperature is 23 in May. It is a little cooler in the mountains. It is generally sunny, with an average of 8 hours of sunshine in May.
From Palma we transfer to Puerto de Soller. Depending on the time of the flight this may be by taxi, express bus or train. The train journey crosses the beautiful Tramuntana mountain range from Palma to Soller and connects with the tram to the port. Walks from Port de Soller take in coastal paths, the pilgrim steps as well as easier village walks or more challenging mountain walks. From Lluc monastery we can reach the highest accessible peak on the island, Massenella and climb Tomir. But there are easy options too and those opting for the easier walking can also visit the market at Inca before the afternoon walk on market day.
The accommodation at the monastery is basic but the rooms have en suite facilities and the location is wonderful. The mountain region around Lluc is unspoilt and tranquil and here we can take in the peaks of Tomir and Massenella. The week long holiday involves 5 days of walking. You can take a day off to laze by the pool or on the beach at Puerto de Soller or explore on your own if you wish. Walks are around 5 to 7 hours.
The price includes flights, transfers to and from Palma airport, accommodation, breakfast, 6 evening meals and transfers to walks. Evening meals are included and taken together in the hotel (1), local restaurants (2) and in the fabulous refectory in the monastery at Lluc (3). We have twin and single rooms available. Flights are from Gatwick, Manchester or Birmingham but may also be available from other regional airports on request. Your Ventura holiday Coordinators for the week will be Jackie and Steve.
