fri20mar10:00 amfri1:00 pm*Cancelled* Classic Friday Walk - The Lost City - 10.00h


Event Details

Due to the new measures around the corona virus, we will cancel all of our community walks from 16th of March for the next 14 days.

We begin our walk in the valley near San Mateu, where most of the grapes are produced for making wine on the island. Together with Tim we leave the valley floor, heading into the forest. Enjoying the scented and shady pines, we pass olive, fig and carob trees, and forage for rosemary, thyme and lavender along the way.

We finish up on a headland where the Moors used to live many centuries ago. During the Catalan invasion in 1235, the Moors that didn’t want to convert to Catholicism escaped across the island. They found this beautiful spot to live and built a whole town of 1000 people. They survived off the land and springs which they dug on the valley floor.

On this walk we also see the ‘great wall of Ibiza’, which stretches across the headland. Originally 5m tall with lookout towers, a small portion still survives today. From this vantage point, 300m above sea level, we can enjoy stunning views across the water. You can see as far as mainland Spain on a sunny day!

How do the walks work?
You don’t have to make a reservation for our Community Walks. You just can show up at the meeting point.

-A small backpack so your hands are free
-At least 1.5 litres of water
-Some snacks to keep you going
-Good foot wear that has been worn in trainers are generally ok as long as they have good grip
-Sunblock if required
-Sun hat if required
-Swimming gear in season
-Torch for night time walks
-Light shower coat, just in case

We have walking poles available to assist you if required.

The walks are by donation of €10 per person, the BIG WALKS are by donation of €15 per person, It’s important for us that the walks are accessible to all and if you are on a very tight budget then we also accept exchanges like some nice chocolate, something home made or a hug!

If you have a lovely well trained dog which is also socialized please bring them along. They will need to be on a lead on the roads & some of the beaches.

We have liability insurance, but do not have medical insurance – this is your responsibility.

All our guides are trained and have the ability to lead groups, they all carry a first aid kit and use walkie talkies to keep in contact with a back marker to make sure the group stays together and are safe. We also have strict departure and return procedure to ensure everyone is accounted for.

The trip and your safety is your responsibility and you must ensure you are covered for this prior to coming on the walk.

Don’t hesitate contacting us if you have further questions.
