A Hikers Playground
We are so fortunate here on the island to have an abundance of beautiful hiking trails, at all levels of difficulty, with such diverse landscapes and views. Sandy beaches, dramatic coastlines, flowing waterfalls, ancient building ruins, abundant wildlife, and the Tramuntana Mountains with peaks of up to 1000m offer the perfect trekking conditions. Mountain Guide Nicky Hanganu discovered all of this 12 years ago when the sailing yacht she was working on based itself in Palma during wintertime.

Specially selected guest riders will join them en route for this epic and ambitious adventure.

Let’s try to move forward now, and nourishing ourselves is a perfect starting point.

Koreans take their skincare seriously and with the recent popularity of ‘K-Beauty’ across the world it seems plenty of us are subscribing to their methods. The ban-shin-yok, or Korean half bath, is a technique in the Korean skincare toolbox that we can easily try out at home. As a great way to induce deep relaxation before bed and reduce those feelings of anxiety we’ve all been experiencing lately, we suggest giving this a go one evening by setting up a mini at home spa.
