Mallorca is not only a primary holiday destination for sun-lovers, but also a true hiking paradise, with lovely valleys, wild, romantic gorges and countless panoramic summits, all in the serene hinterland, tucked away from the seasonally overcrowded coasts. The "other" Mallorca surprises the visitor with a well-developed network of trails, and offers a variety of tours for all demands and levels of difficulty, starting from simple beach walks, to adventurous cliff tours and challenging mountain hikes, up to a spectacular canyon crossing. Rolf Goetz, the author of this Rother hiking guide, is one of the best experts on the Spanish Islands, and, through his various publications, has already made an excellent name for himself. He presents hikers with a wide variety of entertaining tour suggestions, mainly emphasising the wild, chasm-filled Serra de Tramuntana in the Northwest, but also including other island regions. This handy little hiking book, which opens up one of the most popular island hiking destinations in the Mediterranean area, has over 48 tour recommendations described in detail, generously illustrated by colour photos and colour map excerpts (scale 1:50,000) and 1:75,000). Thoroughly-researched introductory chapters with tips on interesting sights and a bus schedule complete this excellent guide, which no traveller should do without. Thus, this guide remains a reliable companion on all hikes on this diverse island.
This guidebook describes the GR221, a 140km (87 mile) long-distance trail through northwestern Mallorca, from Port d'Andratx to Pollença. Also known as the 'Ruta de Pedra en Sec' ('the Drystone Route'), the GR221 is a celebration of Mallorca's limestone heritage, taking in many historic drystone structures as it traverses the rocky peaks of the Serra de Tramuntana. Following old stone-paved paths and mule trails, it showcases the region's beautiful landscape of mountains, forests and cultivated terraces, as well as its spectacular coastline. The GR221 can be walked in 1-2 weeks, although the guide also covers 3 alternative start-points and 3 alternative finishes, which would allow for a shorter trek. The main route is presented in 10 stages of 8.5-20.5km (5-13 miles), with a handful of optional detours to bag neighbouring summits. Detailed route description is accompanied by 1:25,000 mapping and inspirational photography, plus a wealth of information on local points of interest. Accommodation and travel are also thoroughly covered: the trail boasts good transport links and plentiful facilities on route, with accommodation in welcoming mountain villages and the occasional 'refugi'. A comprehensive introduction offers the opportunity to discover more about the region's diverse plants and wildlife and unique history and culture, and an English-Spanish-Catalan glossary can be found in the appendix. With a favourable climate and stunning scenery, the Serra de Tramuntana has much to tempt the walker. The GR221 Drystone Route represents an ideal way to explore this fascinating World Heritage Site.
