Leaving the village of Valldemossa, you reach an area with restricted access where a limited number of permits are granted each day to walk the Archduke’s Trail (Camí de s’Arxiduc). This permit is arranged for you by S-Cape Travel. Should there be no permits available, you will follow an alternative route nearby.

After a taxi transfer to Cala Tuent,a summer village with a lovely beach, you begin a 6-hour walk. Your first follow the coastline to Port Soller and then by way of the farm at Balitx d'Avall, situated among orange groves and olive orchards in one of the most remote valleys of Mallorca.

Villages along the way: Cala Tuent, Balitx d'Avall

Day 5:    Circular walk from Sóller (7,5 km)

From the port, you do a steep ascent to the cliffs which form a natural breakwater overlooking the bay. At the top, you have lovely views from 'Torre Picada', along the rocky coastline to the tiny island of S'Illeta just offshore.

Villages along the way: S'Illeta, Sa Punta Llarga

Day 6:    From Lake Cuber to Lluc or from Lluc to Pollença (13 - 20 km)

Transfer to Lake Cuber in the morning. Today’s route is, without a doubt, the most beautiful stage of the GR-221 which takes you via the pass at Coll des Prat (1195m) to the remote Monastery of Lluc. The walk begins peacefully along the lake but once in the dense holm oak forest, the ascent starts: quite tough at first (but luckily still in the shade) later gentler, once you have passed the treeline. You’ll enjoy spectacular views over the island as you ascend. After a total of 500m in ascent, you reach the pass below Picu Massanella (the second highest peak in Mallorca). Next you do an equally panoramic section behind Galileu Peak, followed by a descent along the completely restored stone footpath known as “Las Vueltas del Galileu” passing several snow wells along the way. The final section traverses a holm oak forest on your way to the popular pilgrimage site at Lluc Abbey. You’ll have time to see the “Black Madonna” (patron saint of Majorca) before your taxi transfer at 17.30hrs. Short journey to your charming accommodation in the town centre of Pollença. A second option is to start walking from the monastery of LLuc and from there walk to Pollenca

Villages along the way: Lake Cuber, Pollença

Day 7:    Valle Boquer or Cala Sant Vicenç (7 - 10 km)

After yesterday's demanding route, today you choose between two short walks in coastal areas. The easier walk enters Boquer Valley, a small nature reserve for birds with a private beach. As a bonus, you will end your walk with a stroll along Port Pollença’s beautiful seaside promenade. 

The longer walk starts in Cala ses Barques. First you follow a wide gravel track west to a peak, Puig d’Aguila, with splendid views of Formentor Peninsula and the coves of Sant Vicenç and Port Pollença. Then you retrace your route back to Cala ses Barques and Cala Sant Vicenç and cross over to Port Pollença via Siller Pass (elevation 76m). 

Both walks offer the opportunity to stop for a rest at lovely beaches, and both routes end in Port Pollença, where you get the bus back to Pollença. At the end of the day you may wish to explore the town of Pollença or enjoy the hotel’s beautiful grounds including a swimming pool and lovely gardens.

Challenge: 2-4 hrs, 7-10 km, 175/330 m ascent/descent.
