Walking in Mallorca is written for the experienced mountain walker, used to walking in mountains in all seasons. It provides a selection of walks of all degrees of difficulty, and should enable even those limited to a short holiday to make the best use of their time.
Circular walks have been described whenever possible, but sometimes it is necessary to return the same way to the starting point.
Most of the walks depend on the use of a hired car, but Mallorca does have an excellent public transport system too. Some walks can be done directly from Cala de Sant Vicenç, Pollença, Port de Pollença, Sóller, Port de Sóller, Valldemossa, Esporles, Banyalbufar, Andratx and even Palma.
Vulture Conservation above Valldemossa
Walks 55, 56 & 57 each follow a path on a slope north of Valldemossa. The path enters an area where a vulture conservation project is now in place. Access is permitted, but a permit has to be obtained in advance, and at weekends priority will be given to local people. Permits are required for any route passing Font de s'Abeurada, Pla des Pouet and Talaia Vella. Email email@example.com to apply for a permit, as far in advance as possible, giving the date of your proposed visit, the route you intend taking and the number of people in your group, up to a maximum of 15. If any discussion is required in relation to a permit, telephone +34 608 973 083 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Walk 18 Es Cosconar and Torre de Lluc. This route is now too overgrown beyond the Quartier des Carabiners to the viewpoint above the torre. It is an out and back route, so may still be enjoyed up to this point.
In the last line of the route description for Walk 69, the route to follow to make a circular route should be Walk 68, not Walk 66(a).

We are grateful to one of our readers for the following information.
Walk 37 Sa Gubia and Pas de sa Fesa – The stile in the cleft of Pas de sa Fesa is broken. Gates on the descent are locked and difficult to pass. Use the route description for the ascent, then retrace steps for the descent.
Walk 71 Puig d'en Garrafa – On the descent via Coma de s'Ermita, gates are locked and difficult to pass. However, the alternative ascent route via Comellar de Can Pau can be reversed to offer a descent.
Walk 21 Puig Tomir – The gate at Menut is closed to vehicles, but walkers use a pedestrian gate. On the descent from Coll de Fartàritx, the track is fenced on both sides, so look left to spot a stile.
Walk 32 Puig de sa Rateta and Puig de l'Ofre – The slope above the small quarry has been re-forested. Growing trees will become a problem in future.
Walk 63 Galatzó via Pas des Cossi – There is a small car park at the entrance to the Son Fortuny estate.
Readers possessing copies of 'Walking in Mallorca', dated 2004 and earlier, may again follow Walk 13(a) through Ternelles, though Castel del Rei remains closed. A permit has to be arranged in advance by visiting the website www.ajpollenca.net. Click on 'Visite a Ternelles' and follow the instructions.
Walk 27 Puig de Massanella – The latest fees for access are detailed at www.puigdemassanella.com.
Walk 55 – A stile giving access to the summit of Es Teix bears a notice forbidding access, but many walkers have found no problem crossing it to reach the top. However, it is no longer possible to continue and descend to Sóller.
Walk 56 – As above, despite a forbidding notice, walkers report no problem reaching the summit of Es Teix.
Walk 65 S'Esclop – The descent described in the book is now impassable. Don't do it. Instead, reverse the ascent route.
Walks 48 and 49
The urban area of Port de Sóller had been pedestrianized. The tram and bus terminuses have been moved, and some of the street signs removed.
Thanks to David Roberts for providing the following directions for walkers starting out on Walks 48 and 49:
'Leave the tram terminus in Port de Soller and walk 200m south along the seafront to a obvious dual carriageway. Go along this to the first roundabout and take the left turnoff along Av 11 de Mayo, continue along this route onto carrer de Belgica, climbing high above the port. At the first hairpin bend when the road goes sharply left, go straight ahead on a narrow path...'
