The north of Mallorca, in particular, offers an astonishingly diverse range of wildlife habitats, landscapes and history. Central to this theme is a UNESCO World Heritage Site which encompasses the Serra de Tramuntana, a mountain range which stretches some 90 kilometres across the north of the Island and includes coastal cliffs, rocky and sandy beaches, verdant valleys, holm oak and pine forests, agricultural land, scrubland, wetlands and beautiful and iconic vistas.
Many tour leaders are qualified local professional biologists, ecologists, ornithologists, naturalists and historians with a wealth of experience and knowledge of primary sites of interest. A number of guides have also worked in government declared ‘protected areas’ and biodiversity conservation projects.
Whilst set routes and tours, normally taking one day or half a day to complete, are the norm, several companies offer bespoke tours tailored to individual requests and may combine a number of specific areas of interest in one or more complete tour(s) which may last several days.
Although the north of Mallorca contains a plethora of nature parks and wetland areas which attract visitors from around the world, there are areas and islands in the south worth visiting as well including Dragonera and Cabrera at which guided tours can also be undertaken. The benefits of utilising the knowledge and experience of local professional guides will enhance the understanding and appreciation of this beautiful Island for all visitors.
