After the Christmas luncheons and the New Year resolutions, many people are willing to do exercise and get fit. That is why we are going to take the chance to present a new trekking suggestion in the Serra de Tramuntana. Situated in the municipalities of Deià, Valldemossa, Bunyola and Soller, the Puig des Teix (1062 m) is one of the most emblematic mountains on Majorca and has been the source of inspiration for many artists and writers, such as Robert Graves.
The ascent up the Teix, which features many different routes, is one of the most typical and spectacular excursions on Majorca. Hikers will be rewarded with breathtaking views of the Tramuntana mountain range, the North coast and the bay of Palma, both from the lookout points and from the path itself.
This round route of medium difficulty, which can be done in any season of the year, is 14 km long and takes approx. 4:30 hours.
