The Matterhorn of Majorca
From the mountain village Galilea we hike on a narrow mountain path up to 900 m. The other rise to the summit of the Galatzóv (1,025 m) goes over flat rock. After this down to the mountain village of Estellencs.

View of the isle of Dragonera from the Majorca coast
From San Telmo it goes along the coast and the offshore Dragon´s Island (Dragonera) to the ruined Trappist´s monastery and afterwards further to the Coll de sa Gremola.

The bridle path of the archduke
From Valldemossa we hike in the rain through ancient holm oak woods. Here Archduke Ludwig Salvator of Habsburg let himself establish a panoramic bridle path 100 years ago.

The Barranc de Biniaraix
By the tram from Port Sóller to Sóller. Further on the old pilgrim´s way which leads through one of the nicest canyons of the island. On top we see the today´s target, the reservoir Cuber in the sunshine.

The ascent of the Massanella (1352 m)
From the reservoir Gorg Blau we first hike unhurriedly uphill. Then more steeply over rocks to the highest passable point of Majorca, the summit of the Puig de Massanella (1.352 m). The descent to the Monastery Lluc.

The descent into the Torrent de Pareis
Steeply downhill into the gorge of the torrent Torrent de Pareis. Then further in the direction of the Atlantic. However, at a dangerous narrow place we break off. We rise back and drive by the coach to Sa Calobra.

The ascent of the Tomir (1.103 m)
From the Monastery Lluc first on a driveway and then through a wild-grown area. Over an escarpment, which is saved by climbing irons and ropes, we reach at extreme wind the saddle and then the summit of the Tomir (1,103 m).

To the look-out mountain Atalaya de Alcúdia
The lookout summit Atalaya de Alcúdia (444 m) sticks out saliently over the peninsula in the north-east of Majorca. At first unhurriedly and only in the last part more steeply and rocky it goes from Mal Pas upwards.
