In a valley on the southern face of the Tramuntana mountain range, near the town of Bunyola, lies one of the hidden gems of canyoning in Mallorca. Its basin doesn’t receive water directly, as it flows down from the highest mountains of the Serra de Tramuntana.
From the village of Orient, you can catch a glimpse of a winding path that starts at the Comasema estate. To reach the gorge, you can take the road from Palma through Bunyola, a picturesque mountain road that passes through a forest of holly oaks and Mediterranean pines. Another option is to approach from the other side of the island, passing through towns like Inca or Pollença, taking an exit from the hisghway towards Alaró, and continuing on to Orient.
The adventure begins with a breathtaking sight at Salt de’s Freu, a magnificent 25-meter waterfall. As you continue, you’ll find yourself surrounded by a stunning forest filled with vibrant green holly oak trees. The path becomes more exciting, offering opportunities for jumps, slides, descents, climbs, and even rappelling.
For the return journey, we’ll follow the trail through the Coanegra estate, passing near one of Mallorca’s impressive chasms, the Avenc de Son Pou—a vast cave that used to be a popular tourist attraction but is now closed to the public. We’ll continue ascending until we reach a fork in the road, where we’ll take the left path to return to Salt de’s Freu and, a little later, to the road where we left our cars.
