Have you ever dreamed of hiking on a charming island while enjoying unrivalled weather? On your hiking route through Mallorca: Serra da Tramontana, you can make it happen.

You will tour a part of the well-known “Ruta de la Piedra en Seco”, (Dry Stone Route) –  a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and discover a bit of the history and agricultural traditions in this area of the island.

Advice

What should I consider to prepare physically?

Both sedentary people and those who regularly exercise should physically prepare for any of our hiking trails.

Sedentary people can start with moderate activity and continue progressively. They should start by taking small 20-minute walks, two or three times a week. It is suggested to increase the time until you reach walk about 4 or 5 kilometres every hour.

People with regular physical activity can start by walking from 45 to 60 minutes a day and increase the amount of time and kilometres they travel in the same span of time.

Generally, it is recommended to start training about three months before starting the route.

How far in advance should I make the reservation?

There is no minimum number of days in advance to book, although on certain dates the occupancy of the accommodation is higher, especially in high season.

Therefore, in order to guarantee availability in the best accommodation, we suggest you book as much in advance as possible, so that we can meet all your needs.

What clothes and hiking equipment are indispensable?

For any of our routes we suggest you to bring the following items: light and fast drying clothing, waterproof jacket and trousers, sun hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, a pair of shoes suitable for hiking, trekking poles, a pair of shoes to rest in, a jacket that doesn't take up much space and a bottle to carry water.

Depending on the time of year in which you make the route, these items may vary.

Remember that with Santiago Ways, you have included a baggage transfer service between stages, so we will take your backpack from one accommodation to another so that you only worry about walking (maximum 1 piece of 20 kg per person).

For this reason, we suggest you prepare a second backpack, much smaller, that you can carry with you every day with water, sunscreen, cap, sunglasses, documents, some food and cash.

How does the baggage transfer work between stages?

Every day, at 8:00 am, you must bring your luggage, properly labelled, to the reception. One of our carriers will pick it up and take it to the place where you are going to stay on your next stage.

Delivery time varies according to the distance between stages and the carrier's delivery route. Usually, delivery is made before 4 p.m.

Please note that on many routes you sleep more than one night in the same accommodation, so the baggage transfer will not be necessary in these cases.

To do this,we suggest you take out the Travel Assistance Insurance and Cancellation Insurance that we offer you in Santiago Ways.If you want more information about it, we will be happy to answer your questions.
