/ Majorca... any good tips or recommendations please? !
Have already established that I'll be staying in the north east... Pollenca or Port de Pollenca. I've seen various websites recommending bike hire companies and sea kayaking trips. I guess it should be pretty easy... but people of UKC, what can you recommend? Are ther any good:
- Airport transfer companies?
- bouldering venues?
- unmissable views?
- superb single track?
- places to find climbing partners?
- bijou beaches?
- good pubs for socialising?
that I need to know about? !
The archdukes path.. stunning cliff edge work 3000 ft up..
ignore the signs re dangerous animals..
It's given a scrambling grade 3S on UKC, but that's for the full ridge. If you just do the Western half (as is described in most walking guides) it's far easier.
Also, I'd recommend Cala de St Vincenz as an alternative base if you fancy somewhere less busy. It's next to Pollenca, but far quieter.
Thanks for all these tips... think I'll be using all of them.
Anyone able to contribute biking info? Best hire shop? Places to get maps? MTB routes?
Some other walking/scrambling options:
Massanella: there is a nice circuit via a short scramble on the north side, starting from Lluc.
Puig Tomir is a worthwhile summit with a good view, though only a half day by the shortest route (from Binifaldo).
There is good walking starting from the Cuber reservoir west of Lluc: I've done a nice circuit over Sa Rateta, L'Ofre, Puig des Jou and Es Cornadors, returning via the Col de l'Ofre.
Is this any use?
Think these are the best maps: http://travel.stanfords.co.uk/search?w=mallorca%20tramuntana%201%3A25000&asug=
You're welcome! Hope you have a great trip...
