Explore Mallorca in New Ways

If you’re looking for ways to discover the distinctive culture, cuisine, scenery and wildlife of Mallorca, Spain, the newly re-opened Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel & Spa has launched a series oftailored Unique Experiences.

Thrill-seeking guests can hop on a Harley Davidson motorcycle and soak in the beauty of the Balearic Island on a trip through the Tramuntana Mountains. For those in search of a combined land and air adventure, a once-in-a-lifetime heli-hiking experience involves a 20-minute helicopter ride, followed by a hike along one of Mallorca’s most beautiful coastal trails. The trip is rounded off with a delicious lunch, before heading back to the hotel by private speedboat.

Foodies can visit the nearby orange co-operative, managed by local farmers, to try their hand at marmalade-making or hike to the picturesque town of Banyalbufar, which includes wine tasting en route. Early risers can venture into the Soller Mountains, where they can learn about olive-growing, before sitting down for a traditional local breakfast.

For those seeking to explore the local culture, Jumeirah Port Soller can arrange day tours to Palma’s finest art galleries and museums, including the world-renowned Joan Miró Foundation, EsBaluard Museum and Caixa Forum Foundation, as well as the lesser-known private studios. Guests can also take a private speedboat to the Cabrera National Park, where they can snorkel in the summer months.

Bird watching enthusiasts can take a guided two-hour walking tour around the northern coast of Mallorca. There will be plenty of opportunities to learn and spot native and migratory species along the way. This area has been heralded as one of the best places to spot the endangered black vulture, the largest bird in Europe.

Built on a cliff overlooking the fishing village of Port Soller, Jumeirah Port Soller offers 121 airy sea or mountain facing rooms and suites, all boasting far-reaching views over one of the most picturesque horseshoe bays on the island. www.jumeirah.com
