Visitors to Mallorca could soon find even more hiking routes opening up with a meeting today being organised to extend one of the island’s most popular routes.
A council meeting today will be used today to discuss if Mallorca’s famous hiking trail GF221 should be extended, with those in favour expecting tourism to increase substantially should the plans go ahead.
Currently, the route takes walkers and cyclists from the resort of Pollensa in the north of the island past the length of the Tramuntana mountain range to Port d'Andratx. The eight stage dry stone route has already become a favourite with those staying in our villas in Pollenca and follows an ancient cobbled route that was originally used to link mountain towns and villages.
So, next time you visit Majorca, you may well find the trail to be extended, giving you even more opportunity to experience the island’s beauty.
