Serra de Tramuntana Hiking

There are some hiking routes in the Serra de Tramuntana. At Howlanders, we offer you different routes divided by stages and on different days so that you can enjoy this gift of nature. All of them are routes that follow one part or another of the GR221 trail, are self-guided and include accommodation.

The favorite of hikers is the Dry Stone walk or Alpine route. It is a challenge of 94 km, 8 days, 6 stages and 4240 meters of elevation gain. It may be the most complicated, but it is also the most complete and an authentic experience. It also includes a guided excursion to the Torrent de Pareis, a torrent that crosses the Serra de Tramuntana and leaves a spectacular beach with crystal clear water.

On the other hand, there is another more comfortable route that, although it is also done in 8 days, covers less kilometers and sleeps in a 3-star hotel. More comfort does not mean that it is less adventurous!

If you don't have enough time to cover the entire Serra de Tramuntana, you can opt for a 5-day Express route over 36 kilometers divided into 3 stages. With this route you will stay in 3 and 2 star hotels and you will be able to live the experience in less days.
