‘Running’ and ‘mountains’ might not be two words you want featured in the same sentence, but the island of Mallorca has some of the finest mountain scenery, and trails on which to explore them, anywhere in the Mediterranean region.

These trails can, of course, be explored at a gentle walk, but running them adds a certain challenge, and boy does the view from the top look good when you're there.
Our running guides know the various mountain (and coastal) trails inside and out, and can tailor a route to suit your exact requirements, be that a marathon training programme or a one-off run to blow away the cobwebs. All the guides are trained in first aid and orienteering, and cater for small groups but also individuals.
According to your fitness level and preference, they can take you to some of the highest peaks on Mallorca (as high as 4,484 ft), or along old monastic trails between remote villages. There are also some lovely beach and forest routes that are equally picturesque but a little less challenging.
