A route of medium-high difficulty, perfect for people in good physical shape and accustomed to hiking. It is an unfrequented route by the vast majority, both the ascent and descent are very hard and more than half of the journey is no path and you have to go through two walkways a little difficult.
We begin the route from the old road from Pollença to Lluc, with small slope, and moving up a slope increasingly pronounced. We will enter a beautiful forest of oaks (Ses Voltes) where we will continue ascending until reaching the base of the Tomir.
The puig Tomir is one of the highest mountains of Mallorca (1.103 meters) and it enjoys a unique perspective of Pollença and the Formentor peninsula. Screes, cliffs, remnants of the harvest season of snow to make ice, so small thorny bushes, vultures, hawks, magnificent views… make this route one of the most emblematic of the Natural Landscape of the Serra de Tramuntana.
When we will start descending, a path will lead us to the snow house of Tomir and we will continue to the mountain villages of Fartàritx. A donkey trail will finally lead us back to Pollença. A small glorious rise, rough on the rise, a slow decline and a walk through the countryside makes this trip an offer you can’t refuse!
