A different hiking concept

Mallorca Hiking has started collaborating with Mallorca Rural Experience, an enterprise from Artà that has launched a very interesting and different hiking concept.

Mallorca Rural Experience is a 4 hours guided activity (in English) that features several key elements:

Local food and wine

Picnic on top of the lookout

  • The circular route runs inside a private farm, which means that you don’t find other hikers than those who come with your group.
  • The path has got a great part of shade thanks to the majestic Holm oak forests, a distinctive characteristic of the farm considering its location next to the deforested Natural Park of Llevant and surrounding mountains.
  • A very original sensorial circuit lets you discover new sensations and definitely brings our body and mind to a new status, ideal to immerse yourself into a true natural experience.
  • Several human heritage remains (lime kilns, charcoal platforms…) have been restored in order to let you learn more about the rural traditions of Mallorca.
  • The path features an ascension to a marvelous lookout on top of a mountain, from which you are able to enjoy fantastic views over the East part of the island.
  • A delicious picnic consisting in local food and wine is enjoyed under the pines on top of the mountain, a very pleasant moment for the whole group.
  • Organic agriculture is nowadays carried out in the farm. During the walk we can see and learn about sheep ranching, fruit trees, almond trees, vegetables and a lot more.
  • The itinerary is not particularly hard and the paths are well kept, which means that the excursion is suitable for all ages, particularly interesting for children because there are dynamic activities and animals.

Sensorial circuit

The relaxing environment of this walk is impressive, as the farm is located in a protected area far from villages and crowds. During the excursion you might only hear sheep bleats, singing birds, moving treetops and your own footsteps. You can achieve a very special mood while trying the peculiar sensorial circuit, barefoot and blind over different materials and cold water, quite an amusing activity too. In the orchard and vegetables patch you are invited to try any available fruit or vegetable, if there are any (depending on the season). What can taste better than a freshly picked fruit? At the end of the walk, you almost feel like knowing this farm since a long time ago. But what it is for sure is that you will bring with you a wonderful and clear picture of the authentic rural Mallorca.

For all these reasons, this rural walking activity is suitable not only for those who want to get a deeper insight into Mallorca’s culture and nature, but also for those who want to evade themselves from the touristic side of Mallorca. The unique, modest and authentic element of this farm captures your senses in an unforgettable way.
