On this Accessible Valldemossa and Sa Foradada tour, you will visit the most beautiful villages in Mallorca together with your guide. Your first visit is Valldemossa. A beautiful town where you can roll around the charming little streets with cafés and galleries. Buy a souvenir and try the typical “coca de patata.” You also visit the famous “Real Cartuja de Valldemossa.” This is an old Carthusian monastery where the renowned Polish composer and pianist Chopin spent the winter of 1838-1839.
During these years, Frederic Chopin and his loved one rented a former monk’s cell at the Royal Carthusian Monastery. Their affair was the subject of much gossip, so they took refuge in Valldemossa. As Chopin suffered from tuberculosis, they thought that the warm climate would help him recover. This was sadly not the case, because the weather was wet and cold and on top, the citizens of Mallorca rejected them. Eventually, Chopin’s health started to fail. The lovers argued with the villagers and each other. This resulted in the lover and writer George Sand (author pseudonym) taking out her frustrations by writing ‘A winter in Mallorca.’
Next, you continue along the coast and make a stop in Sa Foradada. Wander around and see the particular hole-in-the-wall rock formation by the water. Some say it resembles an elephant from afar. Enjoy the sights of the olive groves, lush pine trees and old sea caves.
At the end of this tour, you go to the beautiful town of Sollér, famous for its orange trees, its charm, and beautiful scenery and nature. The village is situated in a valley surrounded by lots of green. People call it the Golden Valley because of the massive amounts of oranges and lemon trees. This fruit export industry was the base of the wealth of the town, which can be seen in the railway, tram lines, and the grand merchant houses all over the city.
All these accessible sports experiences consist of a theoretical part, followed by the sport itself. You are always accompanied by a professional instructor who will show you the ropes. Before doing each sport, there is a test to pass to make sure there are no impediments.
This excursion takes you to the National Park of Cabrera with an accessible boat. The use of a Joelette, the Red Cross service, and a swim in an amphibious chair are all included. Lastly, you head to the stunning Blue Cave.
With this accessible golf instruction, you get lessons first, and then you can practice your swing with the use of a para golfer.
Get to know the basics first on land and then head out to sea to practice your newfound skills. You will also have an amazing view of the Cathedral of Palma de Mallorca from the boat.
Sailing on land is a bit different from the standard sailing. While being on land, you move along on a vehicle on three wheels, making use of the wind.
Do you want to experience the feeling of being weightless? You will get instructions on the basics before you get into the water. Enjoy the experience of being able to breathe underwater, without any restrictions!
After a personalized adaptation of the kayak, you learn how to steer one. Then, it is up to you and have fun on the water.
With this unique accessible waterskiing activity, you will have the time of your life! The board is specially adapted to have an accessible waterskiing experience.
