Hiking in Mallorca allows you to discover the island’s traditional way of life

It is not only about enjoying nature but also about exploring it and discovering traces of our history and culture in the landscape. Part of our ethnological heritage is connected to charcoal making. It is formed by stone structures such as huts, charcoal hearths, loading platforms, etc. Snow deposits are another interesting heritage feature. They were used in the past to store snow and make ice. Other heritage elements include dry-stone paths, fountains and water mills. Furthermore, hiking also allows you to discover the Balearic flora and its endemic species, the unique Tramuntana forest with holm oak and olive trees, and, in the Llevant region, the giant reed, pine and strawberry trees. It is also easy to watch the local wildlife: black vultures, goats and donkeys.
