WOW (Walking on words): the new way to discover Mallorca

When we talk about excursions and hiking, Mallorca is an island filled with secrets to be discovered. Whether it’s in its charming little villages or its long paths through the Tramuntana mountain range, this island is a little piece of paradise for those who enjoy nature, long walks with the family or challenging hikes through the mountains. At Son Brull Boutique Hotel & Spa we are constantly looking for the best paths and guided tours to recommend to our visitors. And even though we normally concentrate in the area surrounding our hotel, today we would like to tell you about a new entrepreneurship we have fallen in love with.

It’s called WOW (Walking on Words) and it’s a new project organizing walks based on routes well-known writes have included in their stories, have based their books or where they have actually lived. This way we see two or our biggest passions combining in a must-do on the island: enjoying nature and learning more about the cultural side of Mallorca.

The seven guided tours proposed by WOW take us to different areas of the island following real or imaginary steps by Jorge Luis Borges, Arxiduc Lluis Salvador, Albert Camus, Robert Graves, Julio Verne, Rubén Darío, George Sand, Julio Cortázar, Llorenç Villalonga, Baltasar Porcel, Agatha Christie, Bartomeu Rosselló-Porcel and Miquel Costa i Llobera among many others.

True is that we are very aware of the fact that Fréderic Chopin lived in Valldemossa and that George Sand and Robert Graves also fell in love with Valldemossa and Deià spending some years on the island. But it is rather unknown that Agatha Christie wrote about Puerto de Pollença, Julio Verne talks about Son Marroig or Jorge Luis Borges was so impressed with La Seu that he had to include it in one of his novels. ‘Walking on words’ gives you the opportunity to discover Mallorca through a complete different look learning about literature, geography and history all at once.
