Excursion “Salt des Freu” (Orient)
The rural hotel Alqueria Blanca is located in Bunyola in the Sierra de Tramuntana (Mallorca).
From our hotel you can do many kinds of activities, and today we would like to propose that you spend one day in and around Orient.
One of the most amazing and easiest excursions on the island would be to visit the waterfall called “Salt des Freu” in Orient.
First of all you can enjoy the road from Bunyola to Orient. This road is very pretty (perfect for cycling), and it´s a place where you can find some of the most beautiful and less unknown countryside.
Once you have arrived to “Coll d´honor” the road will start to go down, and a few kilometres later, just before the village of Orient, you will find the beginning of the excursion (8.5 km from Bunyola).
It´s a very recommendable and easy excursion. You will see a wooden sign which shows us the beginning of the excursion. The waterfall is 20 mins walk away.
The excursion follows a stone path surrounded by pretty countryside.
One of the most enjoyable moments is when you have to cross a stream. You have to try to cross jumping over stones while trying not to get your feet wet.
The highest waterfall is 7 metres and you can often find people canyoning there.
The waterfall is situated in a typical mallorquin oak forest and we recommend that you walk through the area enjoying the sounds and nature.
After spending the morning enjoying the waterfall, another option would be to go to the small village of Orient, where there are only three restaurants. All three are very recommendable. Our staff would be very happy to help you choose the best option for you and to reserve a table.
After eating, you could visit the village, which wouldn´t take you much time as it is very small.
To end your day the best thing to do is to return to S´Aqlqueria Blanca and relax on your terrace or in the swimming pool!!!
