Overview

This page is under re-construction

The Tomir is the highest peak in the NE of the Tramuntana. The view from it is magnificent, especially to the east: the huge bays of Alcudia and Pollensa and the Cape of Formentor. The walk up there is probably the most strenous tour in some parts, but fun nonetheless.
This tour includes everything and has even a slightly alpine character when you cross steep slopes of scree and climb some tall rocks with fixed ropes. And once you made it to the saddle that leads you to the summit plateau, one always thinks: that's the summit right in front of me....but once you reached it, you discover another, slightly higher peak behind it. A very enjoyable and short trip, especially with good weather conditions.

Getting There

Right From the C710 Sóller-Pollensa, just past Lluc, you have to exit at KM 17,4 in direction to "Binifaldo - Menut". The road will take you after a long winding road to the bottling plant Binifaldo. At the parking place there, you'll notice a big wooden sign "Font". At the right side of the green metal gate to the bottling plant itself is whole in the fence and that's exactly where the trail starts.

Red Tape

No permits required.
If you approach by car, please note that at the road up to Binifaldó there is a gate at Menut, which sometimes is open, and sometimes is closed. Even if you find the gate open when you go there, its recomended to leave the car before this gate (for instance at Menut), as you might find the gate closed when you go back again. To walk from Menut to Binifaldó takes about 15 minutes (2km).
