Mallorca is not only a bathing destination as one might think at first glance, but also a great destination for hiking thanks to the Tramuntana mountains in the north of the island. You will also find the beautiful Torrente de Pareis canyon. The classic complete canyon crossing begins at a place called Escorca. If, however, you do not want to deal with logistics, it is easier to reach the beach of Sa Calobra, where the gorge empties and go against the direction and when you stop having fun to go back

A lighter version of the trip to the Torrent de Pareis gorge starts at the also famous Sa Calobra beach.

The beginning of the gorge

The gorge is wide at the end, but that will change after a few tens of meters

Rocks and solitary conifers that is the beauty of the Tramuntana Mountains

A real entrance to the gorge

The sand slowly disappears and you walk on small pebbles. In a moment it will be bigger and bigger stones

Ponds in the gorge

As in any good mountain gorge, you will come across small lakes

Journey through the gorge

If you are here soon you will not even meet an animal here. That morning time is good not only on the gorge, but especially on the beach of Sa Calobra, where the head is on

Half-cave

Thanks to the karst rocks and the action of the water, the surroundings of the gorge are rugged. Here you will find various half-caves and overhangs

Highway through the gorge

In some places, the passage is really walking

The more challenging part of the gorge

The comfortable part of the gorge soon ends and begins climbing and jumping over gravel and climbing boulders. Here, most beach travelers turn around after a while

Gigantic boulders

The path is often blocked by gigantic boulders – I would not want to go here when another one is added from the top

In the places where the gorge opens again, we turn it around and go back

Good

Moc pěkný kaňon, jen tam nechoďte v zimě, je tam moc vody a museli byste plavat... Je to nebezpečné, tak pozor na zimní měsíce :)
