Torrent de Pareis is the jewel of Mallorca and the golden hike for both locals and visitors. It is not a very long brook yet it is physically and sometimes mentally demanding. Your day starts eary!, very early. We must drive to the isolated town of Escorca. From the top to the bottom there is one hour of effective walking down to the gorge. From there roughly 5 km separates ourselves from the sea at “Sa Calobra”, jumping from one boulder to the next one. Exploring your limits. Feeling geology. Laughing out loud. Your guide will lead you through the fantastic geology providing safety and lectures and fun. If you like top challenging outdoor activities, this is your tour.
Keep in mind that the last public bus to the starting spot leaves at 3 pm and seats are limited, therefore, if you are coming with a group maybe is better to hire a transfer.
What to bring to a hike with us:
The here weather can change unexpectedly. In the mountains, clouds can drop quickly and mist can come in from the sea, causing loss in visibility and fall in temperatures.
The terrain in Mallorca is rough so good footwear is essential. Sneakers, trainers, whatever you call them, are not recommended. Hiking shoes or boots with good grip are requiered and your guide can refuse to lead you if he/she finds it appropiate for your safety (at your own cost).
During a day’s hike we can experience heat, cold, heavy UV radiation, wind… Consequently, anything that you like to use to protect yourself from the elements is advisable.
Whatever the month it is essential to carry plenty of water, and a few snacks to top up your energy levels, are always advisable – just in case!
