La Serra de Tramuntana, Mallorca's other face

Through the marked trails of the GR 221, discover pastoral Mallorca, inhabited by endemic species, more than 1,000 meters above sea level.

The North wind - which blows from the mainland, rushes into the Gulf of Lions and then spreads around the North-western part of the island - giving its name to the main mountain range of Mallorca: the Serra de Tramuntana. This unique area, which is 1,445 meters high, is covered in snow during winter, subject to heavy rain, in stark contrast with the arid climate of most of the island and usual Mediterranean standards. In the Serra de Tramuntana, nature and biodiversity lovers will be delighted! While the Spanish Air Force has settled on the highest peak (the Puig Major, which has been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2011), other summits are fully open to trekkers thanks to the GR 221, otherwise known as "dry stone road", a great hiking trail marked along 149,5 kilometres! Be sure to take a stroll along the sumptuous Puig de Massanella and Puig de Galatzó. They will open the doors to lesser known, magnificent, and wild Mallorca.
