Nat Geo Day Tour: Mallorca's Flor de Sal, Unearthing an Island Treasure

Approximate itinerary and duration of activities:· Walking Tour through the salt fields 30 minutes· Salt harvesting 30 minutes· Birdwatching 15 minutes· Salt Tasting 15 minutesPlease note the order of activities may vary at your guide's discretion Behind the white sand beach of Es Trenc stretches the Protected Area of the Levante Salt Flats. For millennia, precious salt has been harvested here, and today it's a haven for nature enthusiasts and home to over 160 different species of birds. With luck you will be able to spot avocets, stilts, and pink flamingos among many others. Spanning an expansive 150 hectares, the Levante Salt Flats have been designated as a Natural Area of Special Interest. Three conditions are essential for the purest salt to form – hot sun, sea breeze and low humidity. You will witness the ancient process of salt harvesting as you explore the salt pans on a gentle walking tour, your National Geographic-traned guide providing you with local insight and explaining the history of this ancient Balearic occupation. Watch the expert Salineros using age-old techniques to gather the finest, Flor de Sal salt crystals, and then have a go at harvesting some yourself. The tour also spotlights the sustainable nature of the sea salt industry. The production is in total harmony with the ecosystem, in fact many migratory birds rely on the mineral-rich wetlands to restore balance after long flights from overseas. The delicate nature of salt crystals means hand harvesting is the only workable method, so there is no need for mechanised harvesting. Enjoy landscapes and artisan processes that have remained unchanged for centuries as you soak up the peace and nature of this special place, with a tasting to round off the tour.

Nat Geo Day Tour: Marine Treasures of Mallorca, the Posidonia Oceanica
Activities

Nat Geo Day Tour: Marine Treasures of Mallorca, the Posidonia Oceanica

Inspired by the work of National Geographic's Pristine Seas project, which aims to protect the last wild places in our oceans, this National Geographic Day Tour offers a unique opportunity to explore some of the most beautiful and unspoiled Mediterranean waters by kayak, accompanied by a marine biologist and learn about the importance of Posidonia Oceanica. Posidonia Oceanica is more than just a seagrass. In the words of Manu San Félix, a member of the National Geographic Pristine Seas Project: "Posidonia is the architect of the Mediterranean marine ecosystem." It is an essential part of this ecosystem with broad implications for ecology, coastal stability, tourism, and even climate regulation. Efforts to conserve and protect this important species are crucial to maintaining the health and balance of the Mediterranean environment. This humble plant plays a vital role in oxygenating seawater, helping to stabilize sediment, and providing a habitat for many species of fish and other marine life. Accompanied by a marine biologist, you will paddle your kayak a distance of approximately 2.5 miles around the Marine Protected Area of the Malgrats Islands, a biodiverse ecosystem which is home to dolphins, fish, birds, algae and more. The protected zone was established to safeguard the surrounding marine habitat, an important location for Posidonia Oceanica. Exploring mostly by kayak with an optional snorkel stop, you'll see the Posidonia meadows for yourself, with explanations from the marine biologist about the impact this seagrass has on the Mediterranean and the wider world. Learn how each of us can play a part in protecting the Posidonia meadows, by raising awareness of their role in the battle against global warming, as featured in the National Geographic documentary, 'Pristine Seas: The Power of Protection'.

Things to do in Mallorca

The largest of the Balearic Islands, Mallorca is known for being one of the top vacation destinations in the Mediterranean – and it's easy to see why. Annually, millions of travelers are drawn to this island escape for its sunny climate and picturesque beaches, but there's much more to see and do here than just sunbathe. Heading off the tourist trail to discover authentic island tradition at one of the many villages, exploring the extensive underground network at Drach caves or ascending through the scenic landscapes of the Tramuntana mountain range are just some of the many experiences you can enjoy during your time in Mallorca.

Top things to see and do in Mallorca

1. Explore Palma

Mallorca's atmospheric capital, Palma, is packed full of history, culture, and attractions. A city of old and new, you'll find all-manner of shops, restaurants, and bars here, alongside distinctive Mediterranean-style architecture. Lose yourself in a maze of narrow, cobbled streets in the old town, or head further out to see the likes of Bellver Castle or La Almudaina Palace. Palma’s crowning jewel, though, is La Seu Cathedral — is a symbol of the city. One of the largest cathedrals in the world, this Gothic masterpiece is one of Mallorca’s must-see sights.

2. Go underground at Drach caves

Mallorca's cave systems are vast and plentiful, but Drach caves leads the way for iconic attractions both on the island and in the Balearics. Descend underground and weave through a series of caverns adorned with thousands of stalactites and stalagmites. You'll also find Lake Martel here — one of the largest underground lakes in the world. And if you're left wanting more, there's Arta caves and Hams caves, which are also well worth a visit.

3. Travel back in time on the historic Soller train

Mallorca's vintage wooden train has been reliably ferrying passengers and cargo to the charming seaside town of Soller since its inaugural journey in 1912. Nowadays, it serves as an ideal way to catch a glimpse of the island's rustic interior. Cross through parts of the Tramuntana Mountains — UNESCO-declared World Heritage Site — for unparalleled beauty and panoramic views. Once you're in Soller, treat yourself to freshly-squeezed orange juice from one of the many local restaurants, or continue on to the Port of Soller by tram.

4. Discover Valldemossa and the West Coast

Arguably one of the most beautiful towns on the island, you'll find Valldemossa located in the heart of the Tramuntana Mountains. Its charming town centre is something straight out of a fairytale, with its old monastery, La Cartuja, among one of its must-visits. Venture further along the striking west coast of the island, and you'll see towering cliffs, hidden coves and typical Mallorcan villages. The Son Marroig estate in Deia and Sa Calobra beach are two other essential stops here.

5. Sip on local wine in Binissalem

Trips to the wine capital of Mallorca, Binissalam, are among of the most popular activities on the island. In addition to touring the sprawling vineyards, discovering historic wineries, and tasting some of the island's finest wines, you'll learn all there is to know about local grape varieties and wine-making processes. Many winery tours include the chance to savour a traditional meal, expertly paired with local vino.

6. Spend a day exploring Cap de Formentor

Cap de Formentor is the northernmost point of the island, and its dramatic cliffs make for one of the most impressive views in Mallorca. Guided tours normally include a stop at one of the viewpoints dotted in the peninsula, such as the Colomer viewpoint. And after the chance to admire the views, there's nothing better than relaxing on Formentor beach, famous for its talcum-white sands and crystal-clear waters.

Plan your visit to Mallorca

These seasons are ideal for exploring the island calmly, as well as taking part in outdoor sports such as hiking or cycling.

How many days do I need in Mallorca?

You'll need at least 3 days to visit the best of Mallorca. On a long weekend, you can explore Palma and take a visit or guided tour to the highlights of the island, like Drach caves or Valldemossa. But, if you want to enjoy a few days on the beach, take a hike and discover the island in no rush, between 5 days and a week is perfect.

Where are the best beaches in Mallorca?

With nearly 300 beaches, there's somewhere to please everyone in Majorca. One of the most popular is Formentor beach, a stone's throw from Puerto de Pollença. This sandy stretch, flanked by a lush pine forest, never disappoints. Mondrago beach, located in the natural park of the same name, also tops the list, as do the neighboring Sa Amador and Es Borguit. Es Trenc beach is part of a protected natural area and is also considered one of the best in Majorca. For those who prefer beaches with all kinds of services, Alcudia is an excellent option.
