The GR221 is a 140-kilometer-long walk in Mallorca, where you explore the Serra Tramuntana on this beautiful island's northwestern part. The route stretches from Port d'Andratx to Pollença and is divided into ten stages of varying lengths, ascending and descending 6,140 and 6,150 metres respectively.

The route has no technical difficulties and is suitable for anyone with a decent fitness level. That leaves plenty of time for breaks at the orchards, enjoying the beautiful views from the mountain trails, and a drink on a terrace at the end of the day. You don't have to worry about the logistics of reserving the huts and other accommodations. We'll take care of that for you, so all you have to do is enjoy this unforgettable adventure.
