The path is mostly stony and undulating, with breaks in isolated bays offering moments of tranquility.

After descending, we'll make a brief stop at Es Mercadal for a coffee break.

Upon arrival at Santa Teresa, the site of the ancient Roman city of Sanisera, you'll disembark and commence your walk along the picturesque Cami de Cavalls trail. Your path leads you to the scenic bay of Cala Tirant, where you'll enjoy your picnic lunch and, during the warmer months, a refreshing dip in the sea. After leaving the beach, you'll continue your walk to the 18th-century British-built Martello tower of Fornells, adding historical depth to your journey.

Trip Information

All the details you need

Holiday Grade

This Grade 4 holiday includes a leisurely pace of full and half day walks at a moderate pace and is likely to include an element of sightseeing as well. Half day walking will probably include about 3 hours of walking, with full days having around 5 hours. Menorca has little in the way high or steep ground so the walking is not strenuous. The maximum altitude we reach on foot during this holiday is 120m.

Some dates are perfect for those with an interest in flowers appealing to gardeners, nature lovers and photographers alike. Our walks on these dates you give you plenty of time to appreciate some of nature's finest wild blooms. Your enthusiastic leader will adjust the pace to suit the interests of the group, though may not be a flower expert.

Walks & Excursions

Menorca is quiet, pleasant and ‘laid-back' especially out of main tourist season, just like the walks we have established for our holiday. We take each day at a leisurely pace and have time to enjoy the varied scenery, life and history of the island. Some days we follow sections of ‘Cami de Cavalls', the ancient horse track which goes around the whole coast. Other days we explore inland amongst the farms and villages.

Everyday we come across relics of the island's rich history. We see cave dwellings of 4,500 years ago, the strange structures of ‘talayots' and ‘taulas', built 3,000 to 3,500 years ago. We come across many defensive establishments, illustrating the turbulent history of the last 600 years on the island.

Menorca has little in the way of high or steep ground so the walking is not strenuous. The ancient tracks can be a little rocky underfoot and on occasions will take our attention away from the birdsong and views which we have most of the time on the quiet lanes and byways. The generally easy walking enables some of the walks to be a little longer than they may be elsewhere at Grade 4.

Please note even Menorca is considerably cooler in the winter/spring months and layers are key to comfortable walking.

Local Transport Costs

In the holiday cost, we've included all local transport expenses related to the advertised activity programme for your convenience. If there are additional visits or excursions to enrich your experience, you can choose to participate and cover the costs locally. Depending on the itinerary, local transport may involve a mix of private hire coaches, taxis, local buses, and ferries.

Optional Excursions

At your destination, you may have the option to book various local excursions and activities through a local operator. It's important to note that we are not involved in these activities or excursions, and we do not operate, supervise, or control them in any way. Your contract will be directly with the local activity supplier, and we bear no responsibility for their actions or omissions.

Holiday Optional Excursions / Free Day

During your free day you could simply take the day to recharge from you previous walking ready to finish your holiday or you could spend your time exploring more of the island. Below are some options we suggest:

  • Take a Mahon Harbour Cruise to see the island from the sea. Can you spot where you have walked so far?
  • Take the No1 bus to Ciutadella, the islands old capital.
  • Enjoy some shopping and trying the local delicacies in Mahon town and its harbour.
  • Take part in the local tradition of a siesta after lunch! Why not, you're on your holiday!

Spending Money

Holiday Budgeting

As you plan your holiday budget, it's essential to account for expenses such as drinks, meals not covered in the holiday price, entrance fees not included, optional local excursions, and any souvenirs or additional services like laundry. For a rough estimate, budgeting around £10-£20 per person per day for lunches and drinks is a helpful guideline.

Currency in Spain

The currency in Spain is the euro. You may wish to take some euro cash with you until you reach an ATM. Credit cards may not be accepted in smaller towns and rural areas.

Holiday Currency

You will find ATMs along the marina front just a few minutes walk from the hotel and in most larger towns/villages. Should you need a bank there are several in Mahon which is only a 10 minute pleasant stroll away.

Tipping

In your holiday price, we've included tipping for our local suppliers, covering hotel and restaurant staff, local guides, and drivers. Should you wish to make an extra contribution for a specific service, this should be given directly to the recipient at your discretion.

Passports and Visas

European Passport Advice

If you are planning to travel to an EU country (except Ireland), or Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Andorra, Monaco, San Marino or Vatican City, you must meet the Schengen area rules.

Your passport must meet 2 requirements. It must be:

  • less than 10 years old on the day you enter (check the ‘date of issue’)
  • valid for at least 3 months after the day you plan to leave (check the ‘expiry date’)

For some Schengen countries your passport may need to be less than 10 years old during your whole visit, and the 3 months at the end of your visit may need to be within 10 years of your passport’s issue date.

Check both the issue date and the expiry date in your passport. If you renewed your passport early, extra months may have been added to its expiry date. This could affect the requirement for your passport to be less than 10 years old.

Non British Passport holders should consult the host country’s embassy for applicable passport and visa entry requirements.

Meals

Meals come highly recommended with breakfast and dinner buffets in the hotel, perfect for preparing and recharging for your days walking. Breakfasts are a generous supply of everything from fruit and yogurt to continental through to full cooked breakfast.

Lunches are not included but you will be able to buy picnic ingredients at a nearby supermarkets in Mahon or your leader may know a great little cafe or bakery on route making a great lunchtime stop.

On your free day do see if the local fish market where the freshly produced tapas really adds to your day.

Travel Insurance

It’s a condition of booking that you obtain adequate travel insurance, from a reputable provider, to undertake the holiday, including UK trips chiefly due to the cancellation element of cover.

The policy must cover the period from the date of booking to the last day of your trip and should include, as a minimum, cover for: medical expenses (including the consequences of a Covid positive test result), mountain rescue including helicopter rescue, death, repatriation, cancellation and curtailment and shall not have exclusion clauses limiting cover for the activities you will partake in on your trip, including altitudes reached in the holiday arrangement. It is your responsibility to check that your policy is adequate for the nature and destination of the holiday booked.

Once you have obtained your travel insurance, please provide us with the name of your travel insurer, the policy number and the insurer’s 24 hour emergency assistance number.

In the event that you fail to obtain suitable Travel Insurance we shall not be liable for any costs incurred or claims made against us due to your failure to comply with this term.

If travelling outside the UK you must carry proof of insurance with you and produce it if reasonably requested to do so by RWH Travel staff, tour leaders or suppliers. No refunds will be made should you be excluded from the walking programme through being uninsured or you being unable to demonstrate that you are insured.

Our house broker MPI should be considered for whom we are an affiliate and contact information is on our website and will be referred to in your booking confirmation.

If you are travelling to an EU country or Switzerland please also ensure that you have either an existing valid EU EHIC card (European Health Insurance Card) or a valid UK GHIC (Global Health Insurance Card). You can apply for a UK GHIC free of charge on the NHS website at https://services.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/cra/start.

EHIC & GHIC Cards

Starting January 1st, 2021, you, as a UK traveller, can continue using your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) throughout its valid five-year period, granting you access to medical assistance during your holiday until its expiry date. Be aware, though, that this coverage will no longer extend to Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, or Switzerland. In case you don't have a valid EHIC, you can apply for a new UK Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC), which will replace the EHIC as it gets phased out.

It's essential to emphasize that the EHIC/GHIC, while valuable, should not be regarded as a substitute for comprehensive medical or travel insurance. For your peace of mind and comprehensive coverage, considering additional insurance is highly recommended.

Personal Safety

The UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office is your go-to for the latest info on security, local laws, and the nitty-gritty of passports and visas at www.gov.uk/travelaware. Make sure to take a quick peek at the current advice for your upcoming destination—it'll only take a few minutes.

When you're out and about, stay aware of your surroundings. Take smart precautions with your credit cards and passport, and maybe tone down the flashy accessories. Less is more, especially when it comes to carrying cash—just enough for the day will do. Consider using a money belt for that extra layer of security. Stay alert, stay safe, and make the most of your travels!

Cultural Awareness

Responsible Travel

We are dedicated to promoting responsible travel practices that prioritise the well-being of both the environment and local communities. We believe in the transformative power of travel and aim to minimize our ecological footprint by selecting eco-friendly accommodations, encouraging waste reduction, and supporting sustainable transportation options where possible. Our walking tours are designed to immerse participants in the local culture, fostering meaningful connections with the communities we visit. We strive to leave a positive impact by engaging in responsible tourism activities, respecting local customs, and contributing to the preservation of natural landscapes. Through our commitment to responsible travel, we aim to create enriching experiences for our guests while actively contributing to the conservation of the destinations we explore.

The Ramble Worldwide Outdoor Trust

Unlike many other tour operators, we take pride in our unique approach. Ramble Worldwide channels its surplus profits back into various outdoor, walking-related, or environmental conservation projects in the UK through our own trust. When you choose us, you contribute to this impactful initiative.

The primary focus of our Trust's financial support is directed towards Britain's premier walking charity, The Ramblers. They play a crucial role in advocating the benefits and significance of walking to the British public. Additionally, our Trust invites applications for small grants from local organizations in the UK that require support for walking-oriented activities. This encompasses initiatives such as establishing footpaths and bridleways, funding for the reconstruction of bridges and refurbishing huts, and bursary funding for organisations that support individuals to enjoy the beauty of the great outdoors..

For more comprehensive details, please visit the 'About' section on our website and click on the Charitable Trust link. Your choice to travel with us goes beyond a memorable vacation; it contributes to meaningful projects that have a positive impact on our community and environment.

Heart and Sole

We appreciate that we are in a fortunate position to be able to use our profits to help make a difference to people's lives. Heart & Sole is a venture managed by our office staff, whose aim is to reach the heart of the communities in the countries we visit. Through Heart & Sole, we hope to make more of a long term, direct impact to these communities, particularly in less developed countries where even a small amount goes a long way. See our website for more information and details of some of the projects we support.

Staying In Touch

Mobile Phones

Kindly share a mobile phone contact number with us. We'll utilize this solely for crucial communication pertaining to your holiday arrangements.

Ensure your mobile phone remains switched on and easily accessible when en route to the airport or during transit delays. This way, we can promptly reach you with any last-minute updates concerning your travel plans.

In consideration of others, we request that you switch off your mobile phone during walks or make an effort to limit its usage. Additionally, during group meals, please minimize the use of mobile devices. Your cooperation ensures a seamless and enjoyable experience for everyone on the journey.
