Hike in Majorca, Spring 2017

We hiked and camped for 6 days along the GR221 hiking trail in Majorca along the Serra de Tramuntana mountains. We started out on the 26th February in cool early spring conditions. It was a great mix of steep mountains with rough limestone, villages, coast and oak woodland.
