If you like the outdoors, Mallorca has about everything to offer you may be looking for. All activities listed here are within an hour’s drive of Finca Cassiopea ( and many less than that)

Here is a sample:


Hiking: Mallorca, thanks to the Serra de Tramuntana is a very popular place for hiking, particularly in the off-season months when there is plenty of sunshine and little rain. It offers an endless variety of terrain: treks on ridges; dry stone paths; treks to snow houses and charcoal burners; excursions in forests, beside torrents and a range of incredible landscapes, almost always within sight of a dark blue sea.

The Serra de Tramuntana, a national park and Unesco World Heritahge site, runs for 90km from Andratx in the Southwest of the island to Cap de Formentor in the Northwest. Ten peaks are over 1,000m, most are concentrated in the area around Lluc. The highest are Puig Major (1,445m) and Puig Massanella (1,349m).

In the hiking section of See Mallorca you can find a variety of recommended walking and hiking routes if you would like to go and explore the region on foot.

Low traffic, well maintained and sign posted roads,steep mountains for the hard-core climbers as well as flat and hilly roads for the leisure cyclists…Mallorca has got it all

Last year, more than 60,000 cyclists came to Mallorca, mostly in the months of March, April and May, when the weather conditions are perfect and it is still cold and grey in most of Europe.

You can of course bring your own bike, but there are places all over the island where you can rent bikes. Max Huerzeler, for example has nine outlets on the island and rents out top quality bikes.
