What you'll do

Spend a day exploring Mallorca's UNESCO-listed Serra de Tramuntana, a mountain range that forms the island's backbone. Accompanied by a private guide, you'll travel approximately 45 miles (72 km) through the northwest of Mallorca to the valley of Sóller, learning about the region's legends, admiring its olive-grove-studded landscapes, and tasting its traditional foods.

The trip begins with a hotel pick-up and scenic drive through the countryside. Spot the jagged peaks of the Serra de Tramuntana, passing through countryside dotted with windmills, historic towns, and stone terraces that date back to Moorish times. Your first stop is a hermitage, the Ermita de Trinitat, where you'll admire the tiny chapel and panoramic views, then enjoy some traditional ensaimada, a Mallorcan pastry.

Continue to Miramar, a lavish 13th-century estate built by the philosopher Ramón Llull that later became the summer home of Archduke Ludwig Salvator of Austria, both significant figures who have deeply influenced the island. Learn about these two characters as you explore the elegant interior and Byzantine gardens, finishing with local quelitas (crackers) and cheese.

Your next stop is a centuries-old olive mill, La tafona de Can Det, in the heart of the Sóller Valley. Here, you'll learn from the experts how olive oil is produced, and oranges are cultivated. Enjoy a typical pa amb oil tasting, which includes rustic bread, tomatoes, olives, cheese, ham, and olive oil. Wash the snacks with wine and end with some of Mallorca's famous almond cake.

Afterward, relax during the scenic drive back to your hotel, passing through peaceful villages such as Lloret de Vista Alegre and Montuíri, perhaps pausing at panoramic viewpoints en route.
