WALKING MALLORCA - HOW TO DO - GPS WAYPOINTS

 

NOTE . Many walks are described as starting in one place, ending in another place. To make transport less complicated, it is often a better idea to walk out, and return to the starting point again. Some other time do the same from the other end of the walk description. This way you can also regulate how many hours you like your walking trip to last.

 

Safety precautions  Quote from http://www.illesbalears.es
1. Be careful not to travel alone; you never know what may happen. Don't rely solely on mobile phones as coverage may not be good, the battery may run down or you may not be able to use them. We recommend telling your acquaintances or the hotel reception staff which trail you plan on taking.
2. Be well informed about the degree of difficulty, distance and terrain of the trail you choose. We recommend hiking a trail accompanied by someone who has taken it before. Take the hours of daylight into consideration.
3. Wear clothing suited to the time of year. Bring a spare set of clothing, which will come in handy to replace sweaty clothing or for additional warmth if the weather gets chilly. When weather is changeable, bring a waterproof cape or raincoat.
4. Wearing suitable and comfortable footwear is very important. Several different types of footwear are sold according to the type of terrain; select the most suitable. Never wear normal street shoes.
5. Bring some type of light in case night falls; a torch, flashlight or gaslight.
6. Walk on the left side if you must walk on a road and wear reflective clothing.
7. Bring extra food and drink. High-energy food such as chocolate, dried fruit and bananas are recommended. Water is very important, especially in summer. Do not rely on the springs you find along the way on an excursion; they may be dry or contain water not suitable for drinking. Do not drink from water reservoirs as they may contain chemical products.
8. Be careful with the sun. Walking many hours in the sun may burn skin, even in winter. Use the protective sun cream best suited to your type of skin and wear a hat with a brim.
9. Take a small first-aid kit with you.
10. Respect the flora and fauna along the way. Close the doors or gates you pass through behind you. If trespassing is prohibited, do not continue. Be especially careful with fire, which is not allowed in most areas, especially in spring and summer.
