What do you expect from a Walking Holiday?

Great Expectations for WalkingIf you have never been on a Walking Holiday you may not know what to expect. Many still have visions of ramblers with canes, sleeping in hedgerows and cooking with a “Billy can” – well the good news is that walking holidays have become much more sophisticated. Here’s a little overview of what to expect:

Today there is much more awareness of health and the need for exercise, and outdoor pursuits are becoming a lot more popular – which makes combining a holiday with a mixture of walking and relaxing a popular choice. Our lives move at a rapid rate now with internet, mobile connections, email, rapid transport connections, fast food and more, so this is an opportunity to slow down a bit. A walking holiday is a healthy and excellent way to see the beauty of your surroundings, delve into a little history, digest, explore and discover places off the beaten track that many others would never get to see.

At Mallorca Hiking our walking routes are varied and carefully graded at Easy, Moderate, Challenging and Difficult to allow beginners as well as experienced walkers to enjoy their holiday at a pace that is right for them. All our walks are led by an experienced local guide who will share his or her knowledge and expertise of the flora, fauna, history and culture of the island. You get to see and experience parts of the island that you would never find by yourself. All of our guides are fully qualified in first aid, so you are in safe hands at all times even in the unlikely event that something goes wrong.
