Galatzo is one of the most iconic and singular mountains on the island. It lies at the south-western tip of the Serra de Tramuntana and remains one of the most popular excursions on the island. Although difficult in parts, it is is accessible to anyone with a good level of stamina and fitness. The rewards are worth it however, and the views from the summit are breathtaking in all directions.
Although the first 20 minutes of this walk is fairly strenuous, overall the walk is suitable for anyone with a good level of fitness. For the most part you will be following rocky but well defined paths, but there is some scrambling as you approach the summit.

The cancellation of a walk is rare, but it can happen, so it is important you understand our approach to adverse weather and our cancellation policy.
Ahead of any walk we will monitor the weather forecast closely. In most cases where there is light rain or rain is forecast, we will still go ahead with the walk, but naturally will only do so if we deem it safe and if everybody is suitably equipped. There are exceptions and rare occasions when we might cancel a walk. These include (but are not limited to):
We stress again that such situations are rare; but in the event of a walk being cancelled, any deposit paid will of course be refunded (via PayPal or direct to your card). However, if there is an occasion when we go ahead with a walk but it is abandoned due to worsening conditions then you are still obliged to pay in full and no refund will be issued.
