A little of a long weekend – we took Friday off and caught a (very!) early plane so that we could step out of the airport in Palma de Mallorca somewhere between 9 and 10 in the morning.
That gave us effectively one and a half day for hiking in the mountains there before we flew back late Sunday morning.
Wonderful terrain – and two hikes totalling about 9 hours, 26 km and 2500 height meters. The picture above is from the “alternative ascent route” in our guide book on the walk from Valdemossa to Es Teix (the bit between kms 6 and 8 or so). The book called the alternative “highly recommended” and while it probably isn’t for everyone – it was a wee bit tricky at part but not remotely calling for climbing technique or ropes – it was indeed stunning.
