Tramuntana Mountains Trail

4 Daysย  |ย  From ยฃ805pp

Spain ( Best airport: Palma)

Ride through the stunning mountain range of Serra de Tramuntana which covers an area of 1067 square kilometres and extends over a length more than 90km.

The term Tramuntana means “the north on the compass rose” in Catalan – this not only relates to the location of the mountain range in the northwest of Mallorca but also to the cool north wind that blows over the mountains. Nature has created wild gorges and more than 50 peaks that are over 1000m above sea level, and Serra de Tramuntana was added to the World Heritage list in 2011.

The Riding

The riding on this holiday takes you along a stretch of wild, remote coastline. Youโ€™ll be riding on country lines and forest paths as well as along beaches.

Youโ€™ll be exploring a part of Mallorca that few visitors get to see. The pace can be fast where the terrain allows although there are some steep mountain sections where the pace is walking.

Level of Riding and Fitness

You should be a capable rider who is able to spend several hours in the saddle and enjoys a good fast pace. You will be riding around 5-6 hours each day, so you must have a good level of current riding fitness.

Guides and Group Size

All the guides at this destination have an extensive knowledge of the horses and the island. They are relaxed, friendly & professional.

Strict maximum of 8 guests per trail.

The Horses

You will be matched to one of the incredible herd of fit, friendly, forward going trail riding horses which are a mixture of breeds, many have been rehabilitated and are ex-competition horses. Both English and Western tack is used at this destination so let us know when booking if you have a preference. Saddlebags are provided for essentials and luggage is transported by road.

Accommodation and Dining

Accommodation on the trail is in tents, either shared teepee tents or 2-man traditional tents. Tents include mattresses for a comfortable night’s sleep and sleeping bags are provided. The campsite has an outdoor fire area for cooking and socialising, a basic dry toilet and a tap for running water. The horses will graze around you. It is also possible to upgrade to stay in an eco lodge for one night which offers simple shared rooms with bathrooms.

A chef accompanies the trail and will prepare typically Mediterranean meals. Breakfast is usually freshly baked local bread, pastries, seasonal fruits, tea and coffee. Lunches are a Spanish-style tapas picnic and evening meals are either cooked over an open fire in camp or are set menus in local restaurants.
