The long-distance hiking trail GR 221 in Mallorca

Mallorca is one of the most popular travel destinations in Europe, which is probably due to the versatility of this island. There is also a real highlight for long-distance hiking fans: the GR 221 long-distance hiking trail, nicknamed "Ruta de Pedra en Sec" (route of the dry stone walls).

The GR 221 runs along the mountain range "Serra de Tramuntana". It crosses the island from the south-west to the north-east over a distance of approx. 130 km. The map below is helpful when booking accommodation. The following website is available in several languages ​​for booking accommodation in mountain huts such as the "Tossals Verds" hut in the northern part of the hiking route:
