Amazing coastal landscapes, unspoilt mountain regions and breathtaking gorges – Mallorca has much more to offer than just Magaluf and beer. There are so many ways to explore the Balearic island’s magnificent natural landscape.
Torrent de Pareis: Mallorca’s “Grand Canyon”
No other tour on the island can rival the Torrent de Pareis in terms of difficulty. The hike through the deep erosion gorge in the north of the island is quite an adventure, with boulders the height of houses having to be negotiated. Sometimes the only way forward is through an extremely narrow gap. The overhanging rock faces allow nothing more than diffuse light into the gorge in places. You have to go at the right time of year – in the winter season, pools filled with ice-cold water provide an additional thrill. I’d recommend doing this five-hour hike through the gorge no earlier than April, when it’s dry underfoot. For information on the water levels, contact TORRENT DE PAREIS.
