Day 1

Arrive in Palma, Palma Cathedral and Bellver Castle

Students will get to know Palma, the capital city of the Balearics. Half the population of Mallorca live in this beautiful city and it is easy to see its appeal. You will have a tour of Palma and see the narrow streets lined with unique aristocratic houses.

On the tour you will see the 14th century cathedral, which is one of Europe’s tallest gothic structures. As you enter you will instantly understand why it’s nicknamed the ‘Cathedral of Light’. The 61 stained-glass windows illuminate the cathedral with bright colours in the sunshine.

It’s not just the cathedral that will wow you, as you visit Bellver Castle. Bellver Castle has been a royal residence, a military prison and now a much-loved museum. Inside the museum you will visit six rooms, each showcasing a different period in Mallorca’s history, plus the old castle kitchen and chapel. The view from the summit showcase the Bay of Palma and the Tramontana mountains.

Day 2

Hiking in the Levant National Park with a local mountain guide

After time in the city, it is time to see another side to the island with a guided hike through Levant National Park.

You will walk through a stunning wooded area and along a track where you will walk along sand, rock and earth, as your guide explains the cultures and traditions and wildlife of the area. Your hike will predominately take place in the Cala Mesquida area which includes a beautiful sandy beach, pine trees and sand dunes. Being immersed in this beautiful part of Mallorca will not only give your students time for self-reflection, but the day hike will test your students’ resilience and other key skills.

Day 3

Soller to Sa Calobra

It is time for one of our favourite days, starting with your train ride to Soller! Connecting Palma and the town of Soller, the old wooden train was once used to transport citrus fruit and is now one of Mallorca’s best loved attractions. The journey takes an hour through spectacular scenery including bridges and tunnels that take you through mountains and groves of olive, lemon and orange trees.

Once you arrive at Soller (and tried a fresh lemonade or two), hop on one of the regular trams and head to the port of Soller. Here, you will hop on board for a 45-minute boat trip, which will include a visit to the alluring Sa Calobra. Psssst… keep your eyes peeled, dolphins are known to swim in these waters!

At Sa Calobra, you will first reach the stony beach but if you follow the path through the stone tunnel you will reach the stunning beach on the other side and see the effect erosion has on the rocks. Sa Calobra means ‘snake’ and as you head up the distinctive winding road you will see why.

Day 4

The "real" Mallorca

Before you head home you will get to see another side of Mallorca. You will visit the village of Sant Joan to discover a side of Mallorca that few tourists will ever see. You will learn a lot about the local culture and sustainability of Mallorca. Connecting with locals is a huge part of responsible travel too, so we are proud to have this special day for groups.

Students will try their hand at some traditional Mallorcan sports. They will meet locals, learn some of the local language and even visit a house to discover how water is managed within the home.

Trip Notes:

This itinerary has been based on a group of 30 students and 4 teachers travelling in June 2022. We understand that especially at this time, you may want to include extra staff in the cost of the trip.
