Palma will be your first arrival point and although it has a lot to offer as a city it is not where the trails are. We meet at the accommodation not far from Deia or Port de Soller. Meet the team and other Nomadic Runners over an evening meal.
Wake early to breakfast. Warm-up and then off on an extremely scenic circular route. We first take a lower route skirting through woodland as we drop into Valldemossa, A quiet and gorgeous little town we meander through its streets before hitting the trail again. This time we loop up to Puig Gros and Es Caragoli where we get breathtaking views of the Tramuntana range and ocean. We descend the final few km back to our villa. Once back we refuel with a simple lunch and spend the afternoon relaxing at the accommodation, swimming in the sea, or exploring the island. The team and guests reconvene over dinner.
After breakfast and a warm-up we take a quick transfer to the trailhead head on the other side of Soller. Once out on the route the trail we have an initial climb to Puid des Verger before plateauing. We past the mountain reservoir at Cubar and reach ridge-line heading south. Several more peaks provide even more amazing views before descending back to our start point for a refreshing drink. Back at the villa lunch will again be provided and we welcome to have a glass of wine and unwind ahead of the evening meal.
A quick stretch and easy morning run (1hr) will set you up for your journey - this remains low in altitude and follows the coastline before returning to the villa. If you don't fancy it treat yourself to an extra hour or two in bed. The team and guests share breakfast before heading off.
Directly to Palma Airport which is served by a selection of international and budget airlines including Ryanair and Easyjet. A host of car rental companies are available at good value prices.
