Are you ready for THE BIG ONE?
This 18k walk offers spectacular views of Salinas & Formentera to the south, plus Sant Josep & Sant Antoni to the west – you will see the island from a completely different angle! Together with Donna we start the walk on a stunning forest path and gradually climb up through the unspoiled valley behind San Jordi to a Trig Point at 400m, the highest point of the walk.
We will pass a number of cal ovens, natural wells, a shepherd’s shelter and an abandoned ancient finca. We will also pass a natural pond which has recently been built as part of a project to reintroduce the Balearic green toad (calápet), from tadpoles brought over from Mallorca.
Bring plenty of snacks, a good picnic lunch, 3 liters of water, loads of energy and smiles and lets get those legs walking!
