The first day you can check-in at Es Petit Hotel de Valldemossa from 2:00 p.m. Valldemossa is located just half an hour from Palma de Mallorca and you can get there by car, taxi or bus. 

💬🥧 Howlander's Tip
Take advantage of the afternoon to discover this small village nestled in the Tramuntana Mountains. Sit on a terrace and taste the coca de patata (typical Mallorcan sweet coca, especially popular during the popular celebrations of Valldemossa) accompanied by horchata de almendra (a drink of Spanish origin made with water, sugar, cinnamon and almonds; it is drunk very cold).

Biniaraix Gorge

This last stage will run from the Cúber reservoir to the village of Sóller down the Biniaraix ravine. 

This gorge is one of the most iconic landscapes of the Tramuntana Mountains, and has been declared a Public Cultural Asset. A cobbled hiking route that will put the icing on the cake. A fascinating combination of stone steps, rocks, water and wild vegetation.

After 11 kilometres of walking and 800 metres of negative altitude difference you will arrive back in Sóller. The effort will have been worthwhile. 

We encourage you to round off the last day by trying the fried eggs “Sóller style”. Its secret ingredient is an autochthonous product that cannot be missing in the Mallorcan diet. Do you know which one we are talking about? 😬
