Many people don´t know, especially those who come to visit the island, from beyond our borders, but Mallorca is much, much more than sun and beach. The island offers thousands of kilometers of roads and trails to travel both for the more experienced and for families with young children. From the GR221, known as the “de la pedra en sec” route that crosses the entire Tramuntana mountain range with its 168km, to wonderful flat routes along the coasts of Ses Salines or Porto Cristo.
In this post, we want to present several routes with different levels of difficulty, all of them starting from where we spend the night with the motorhome. This is one of the advantages of traveling around Mallorca by motorhome, as soon as we get up, have breakfast and start our activity without having to do any road trips. Remember that all the overnight places are included in the exclusive link that we send from Google Maps to our clients.
For all these routes, we recommend downloading the APP called “wikiloc” on your mobile. This application has a free version and a paid version, which is very worthwhile if we like to go on excursions both around the island and when we are traveling anywhere in the world.
ROUTE 1 – LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY 1 VERY EASY – DISTANCE 4.5 km
This route is perfect for a morning after a few days of heavy rains, because we can see the water seemingly out of nowhere. We will leave from the Campanet caves car park, open to the public for visits throughout the year and in just over 2 kilometers we will find the area from where the water flows. The whole area is perfectly signposted and there are several routes to do on foot suitable for all ages.
ROUTE 2 – LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY 2 EASY – DISTANCE 8.2 km
We will leave from the “Cala Agulla” car park, one of the busiest places for motorhomes in all of Mallorca. This route can be done completely or if you do not want to go up to Talaia de Jaume II, you can go straight to the beach of Cala Mesquida. On the website of the Capdepera town hall you can find more routes in the area.
ROUTE 3 – DIFFICULTY LEVEL 3 MODERATE – DISTANCE 11 km
For this third route we already get into the heart of the Serra de Tramuntana. It starts in the Lluc public car park and is marked and signposted at all times. It is a route that can be done perfectly with children from 5/6 years old, who already have some experience in mountain excursions.
ROUTE 4 – DIFFICULTY LEVEL 4 DIFFICULT – DISTANCE 16.7 km
Fourth and last route in the series, in which we propose the climb to Puig Tomir, also from the Lluc public car park. For this last route we do not recommend that you take children under 9/10 years old because it can be very hard for them, also there are some steps a bit technical that it is better to leave for when they grow a little more. To follow this route, the marks and signs that we can find during the tour will no longer be enough.
