MAJORCA, a Mediterranean island, well known all around the world, especially "Tramuntana", the mountain range that stretches along the whole northern coast, still full of secrets well defended by its rocky architecture.
 
Our activities take place in "Sierra de Tramuntana", a place of a remarkable beauty, where its landscape greatness does not lay in the height of its steep peaks but in the harmony given by the contrast of blue sea against the green and red of the lands and the grey of the mountains.
We will enjoy this marvellous view every time we reach the goal of our excursions: the canyons (named here "torrents").
 
From the second to the seventh daytrip our group will walk on foot and swim through an amazing land, and we will discover the traces of a human culture: stone trails, olive and carob trees terraces with ghostly shapes which still cover the highest and inaccessible places of the mountains' sides, abandoned for a long time.
Every day we will go down the canyons and we will go on along their routes, carved in calcareous rock, which have been eroded by the water and wind's strength for centuries, fanciful, aware of the lack of water.
 
Deep and narrow steeps will open suddenly at the end of a rappeling, showing us an amazing view of the valley's bottom wrapped by their walls and the blue and magnificient sea.
Cascades, chaos, caverns, narrow streams, where the sun does not touch the water till zenith; a crazy world that could seem inspired by Gaudí; we will discover it as we climb and sometimes swim.
Sometimes a cascade or a difficult passage will require rappeling; at this point we will set up ropes and this way, we will be able to jump while being comfortably tied by our safety harness and going down with the help of a mechanical device. This technique, which is extremely easy will be taught beforehand.
Beauty and strong sensations will help you discover you own possibilities.
In certain canyons we will use neoprene clothes for our comfort and sometimes a FWDV will transport us to the trails which lead to the canyons, avoiding walking on the asphalt.
 
Groups can be integrated by either teenagers or adults from everywhere with none, little or a lot of experience on mountain activities as long as they are healthy and sporty.
Our goal is to share with you our love for nature, giving you full guarantee of an exceptional adventure with full safety.
Stays and technical organization will be guaranteed by mountain professionals who work as guides, lifeguards, climbing and skiing coaches the whole year. They are highly experienced on mountain activities as well as on expeditions all over the world.
