Practise adventure & sports
The municipality of Escorca is located in the heart of the Serra de Tramuntana, declared a Natural Area in 2007 and a World Heritage Site in 2011. The peaks, streams and valleys of Escorca are the perfect setting for the practice of numerous nature sports , of which mountain biking, climbing, rafting or caving are some examples.
In the development of these activities, the nature of the space where they are practiced must always be considered. The Serra de Tramuntana Natural Park was created to preserve exceptional natural and cultural values that must be protected and respected. Many of these activities are regulated and in some cases prior authorization is required from the managing body of the natural spaces of the Balearic Islands, currently the Institut Balear de la Natura (IBANAT). On the IBANAT website you can consult the authorized activities in protected natural areas and how to request said authorizations.
It must also be remembered that a very high percentage of accidents that happen in the mountains are due to human errors that can almost always be avoided. That is why it is advisable to always take extreme precautions and always follow the precautions to prevent accidents or mitigate them from the Mountain Service of the Civil Guard.
