Puig Major, the highest mountain on the island, is in a militarized zone and cannot be climbed without prior, written consent. For that reason, many head instead to Puig de Massanella, the second highest mountain on the island (but not the highest accessible point – that being Penyal des Migdia which is an unrestricted peak adjacent to Puig Major). Nevertheless, for many Massanella is the highest accessible singular mountain on the island and is therefore a very popular hike.
The ascent is long and fairly steep in places and can be quite physically demanding, particularly in warm weather. That said, the paths are well defined and it should not pose too many difficulties for the average hiker.
45€ per person (includes transportation to and from a central pick-up point, insurance and toll.)
Payment Terms: A 20% deposit is taken at the time of booking and the remainder should be paid in cash to your guide on the day.
Please refer to our calendar for dates and to book online.
The meeting point is on the main roundabout in Santa Ponsa – next to the bus stops, opposite the taxi rank (there is a “meeting point” sign post there). Pick-up time is 9.00am and you will be dropped off at the same place at around 4.00pm (but finish times can vary depending on conditions and the pace of the walk). Hotel pick-up is available in Magaluf, Palmanova and Paguera for an additional 10€ (to request please make your booking as normal and then contact us and provide your hotel details). Hotel pick-up in the north of the island will only be considered for group bookings, please get in touch for more information.
Please refer to our safety guidelines.
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.
