Fartàritx is one of the rare places in the Sierra de Tramuntana, a set of properties that remain virtually in their initial state and which retain some specific details that make this corner in a very special place.

A true mountain tour with summit at 711 meters above sea level and spectacular panoramic of the Northern Mallorca, which will leave an unforgettable memory of your visit to the Sierra!

Description

We will ascend for about an hour, departing from the bottom of the Valley of March, protected by UNESCO, reaching a plain where we will find some happy sheep and ancient trees, apparently forgotten by all. And, if we are lucky, we can see one of the vultures protected approaching from above, very impressive! We will take a snack at the old Fartàritx farmhouses, while we will enjoy views of the town of Pollença, Pollença Bay, the Alcúdia watchtower and the bay of Alcúdia in the distance. An ancient dry stone path, originally used by farmers and local farmers and their donkeys, will bring us back down. Panoramic views of the highest mountains in Mallorca, lots of history, all different species of fauna and flora, and a good workout for the legs make this tour a must for your camera and a very satisfactory exercise!
