A very fun canyon, full of jumps and abseils!
The canyon of Almadrà is born in the reservoir of Cúber and flows towards the municipality of Lloseta, until it spills its waters in the Albufera d’Alcúdia. Its basin is the natural drainage of the Puig Major and its bed runs between the Cúber reservoir and the old farm of Son Ordines, crossing the valley between the masses of Tossals Verds and the Serra de Sa Rateta.
Its landscape importance is excellent and during its route you can see some of the best views of the Serra de Tramuntana. Forests of oaks, pines and poplars give way to the shrieks, and the observation of raptors is usual. In this canyon we can enjoy sensational waterfalls and large pools.
After the approximation of 1.5 h., we will find a first part of abseils of between 5 and 8 meters and some corners of a magnificent beauty. In the second section of the canyon, the strong dish is approaching! Sa Figuereta jump, of 15 meters high, with a swimming pool at its reception, really spectacular, gives way to Sa Cova jump. A 20-meter waterfall that forms a cave that allows you to hide behind the waterfall. It’s really exciting to go down fast with the water thundering at your side!
After this, there are a couple of rapels until we reach Font d’es Pi, where this fantastic descent ends, and about 30 minutes on the way back.
