Detailed Product Description

UK, Cicerone, 1994, 2nd revised edition. 256 pp, b/w and color photos, maps. PVC covered softcover. New. 

Classic guide to this popular destination in Spain. Seventy walks are described. Long regarded as the definitive guide to the island's routes. These include easy and beautiful coastal walks on the Arts headland and several tough new mountain routes which offer a challenge to the more experienced walker, such as the little known Es Puntals between Esporles and Banyalbufar. One new excursion in the north is a fascinating circular route into the area south of Tomir, past the old house of Ses Figueroles and returning by a newly restored footpath from Lluc to Caimari. Three different walks to the Penyals d'Honor are described, on the wooded plateau belonging to the Community of Bunyola, which can be reached by the mountain railway between Palma and Soller.

In the Soller area two ascents of Balitx are given as well as the more familiar circuit, and an easy walk using traditional old paths from Soller up to the Mirador des Barques provides interest for the more moderate walker. Suggestions for a three-day walk from Andratx to Valldemossa have been included, which can be used in conjunction with that already described from Valldemossa to Pollensa. Another innovation is to include walks on the island of Dragonera, accessible by boat from either San Telmo or the Port of Andratx.

Many other walks have been rewritten to take into account recent changes, including footpath diversions such as the one which diverts walkers away from the Cases de L'Odre above Soller, while some of the original walks have been dropped because of access problems.
