Hiking is one of the main activities on mountain areas, but it has changed deeply in the last years. Since recently, trekking was limited to a low number of local majorcan hikers, with a strong sense of belonging with the territory. Recently, this sport has become mainstream and is even part of the mass tourism. With the aim of reducing massification and human impact in the area, one of the strategies of the “Muntanya del Voltor” initiative is the analysis and regulation on the public use.
Data collected shows that the mountains of Valldemossa receive around 50.000 visitors per year. This large influx of people represents a threat and can cause the degradation of the cultural and natural values of the area. Hence, access is regulated on the private estates within the “Muntanya del Voltor” area.
If you want to walk on the “Muntanya del Voltor” area, you can apply for authorization here (access is subject to a daily limit).
If you want to walk on the free access trails, you can check the different itineraries at the “Routes” tab.
