Flavour of Serra de Tramontana in short time
Apr 2021 • Family
Must-do. We did trekking from Es Verger restaurant with family and enjoyed every minute. The drive from Alaro to the restaurant is not for inexperienced driver. The hike to castle took us about an hour and views are amazing! In short time you get the flavour of Serra de Tramontana. At the end you deserve lamb shoulders or goat with rosemary-both are delicious.

Fantastic
Aug 2020 • Couples
We walked upto the top of the mountain wearing flip flops! This is now family folklore as we are very proud of achieving this without wearing proper boots. We did wonder how they get chairs/tables/food and supplies up there as it's very remote and we didn't see any camels! As the view was fantastic, we took many beautiful pictures from the top. However, unfortunately, I lost them all. I do the remember the view being 10/10 so well worth the long walk up to the top.

Hard work but worth the effort for the view is fantastic, the walking can be very difficult as it’s very uneven in places

An Epic walk but the Views are Fantastic
Jan 2020
Make sure you park on the way up, no need to go all the way to the restaurant. The walk is for prepared walkers or allow a lot of time, its a steady climb up the mountain with plenty of places to rest, when you eventually make it to the top there is bar, small cafe up there and when you see the views you will see it was all worthwhile, just avoid the restaurant on the way down, not what it used to be at all but the mountain, the castle, YES and the views WOW!

Amazing hike
Jan 2020 • Couples
We arrived to Alaro from Palma by train and bus and did the entire route to castle both ways. It was absolutely worth it. Almond trees were in blossom, the bells and voices of sheep and birds made a soundtrack, the sun was shining brightly - what else someone from north could wish in a January. The view from the top is stunning and if you want you can have a drink and probably some food too in the lovely cafe. The hike wasn’t easy for me as I have a knee problems and I’m not very used to uphill walks as a flatland inhabitant but I enjoyed every minute of it. Instead of recomennded 5 hours we did it in 6,5.

Worth the walk!
Dec 2019 • Couples
Beautiful place and amazing view up there. We parked our car in Orient and hiked up from there and back again. You can see both the north cost and Palma from up there and it's quite impressive. There is a way to get much closer to it by car but still there is a bit of a walk to the top. Great experience.

Excellent, must do!
Oct 2019 • Couples
October seems a great time of year to do this one. We considered hiking from Orient, but drove up to the restaurant at Es Verger and so glad we did. The hike up to the restaurant seems quite far and you will share the road with cars. The hike from the restaurant would be the best portion, beautiful, tree lined and about 45 minutes or an hour to the very top. I am glad we saved our energy for that portion. We also cut through the path several times which seemed to save a lot of time, there are well worn trails cutting across the switchback trail. The road driving up is narrow and bumpy, but certainly doable. We did meet some cars on the way down but you can squeeze past. Highly recommend the lamb shoulder at the restaurant. Definitely an adventure worth doing!

A great hike for amazing views of the island and mountains. Easy to manage the route. You can picnic at the top.

Fantastic half day hiking - stunning panorama
Aug 2019
We hiked up to the Castell d Alaro from the main road (did not drive up on the single line paved road) in around 90-120 minutes. You can drive up on a paved road to 75% of the road, however the road is very narrow and driving with the opposite direction traffic is a bit of an adventure.
Hiking requires above average condition due to the sometimes steep trails and the hot weather (in Summer). Make sure you bring at least 1L of water per person.
The trails are very spectacular, olive trees, goats, great panorama.
Your reward for the climb will be a stunning panorama from the top of the mountain.
At the top in the Castell, there is a small cafe where you can eat / buy some drinks.

NOTE: I have a major fear of heights. I still found this trail OK and manageable.

Fabulous. Start early
Aug 2019 • Family
Lovely walk. Take water. Go early in the day. Wear proper shoes. Quite a testing walk but the view is worth it for sure. Restaurant at the top. Really enjoyed and drove to Es Verger, not for the faint hearted.
