Mallorca (Majorca) Day Trips - Tramuntana Mountains

Day Trips

Tramuntana Mountains

Andratx - Soller Road
You can´t miss the Tramuntana mountains in Mallorca, they run, rising like a fin, the length of Mallorca's north coast from southwest northeast and offer some of the most spectacular scenery on the island. The Serra de Tramuntana, named after the Mallorcan northern wind, run for almost 90 km from Andratx at the southern end to Pollenca in the north. Sa Dragonera, the imposing island near Sant Elm marks the Southernmost point of the Tramuntana range with Cap de Formentor in the north. The highest mountains in the range are Puig Major at 1,445m (4660 feet) and Puig Massanella at 1,349m (4425 feet).

The Tramuntana soak up the vast majority of the rain on Mallorca and in the winter, as can be seen in the photo, are often dusted with snow! The best way to experience the range is obviously on foot, exploring the many paths though the pine trees and seemingly abandoned fincas. Visit this site for a good overview of hiking options in the Tramuntana range. You can also experience some breathtaking views of Mallorca visiting the mountains by car or bike, if you have the stamina, with the R710 from Andratx to Pollenca being considered the most scenic route on Mallorca. Another lovely dive or cycle, if not a little hairy, is the C710 route from Soller to Lluc. This road travels roughly between Puig Major and Massanella, passing through miryiad tunnels and gorges through seemingly endless left and right hairpin bends. Hold on tight!
