Serra de Tramuntana

Serra de Tramuntana (Mallorca) – this mountain range runs southwest-northeast in Mallorca, which forms the backbone of that island. Its highest peak is the Puig Major, which, at 1,445 meters, is the highest mountain in the Balearic Islands. The entire Serra de Tramuntana range is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Due to Puig Major’s height, it’s not unheard of for snow to cover that mountain area during the winter. The entire Serra de Tramuntana range itself receives far more rainfall during the rest of the year than anywhere else within the Balearic Islands. In terms of tourist activity, it attracts mountain hikers, eco-tourists, and mountain bikers.
