La Reserva Puig de Galatzo, is a Nature, Wildlife and Adventure park located on the South West of Mallorca, in Puigpunyent, approximately 17 kilometres from Palma.
It has a surface area of 2,5 million m² of flourishing vegetation, where a great variety of exceptionally beautiful animals live in a breathtaking environment.
The park lies at the base of Mount “Puig de Galatzo” on the heart of the “Sierra de Tramuntana” Mountain Range, recently declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco. With a height of 1.026m, Puig de Galatzo in one of the most emblematic mountains on Mallorca. It is the highest mountain of the South of the Sierra de Tramuntana, and it’s isolation from the rest of the mountain range, makes it a perfect spot to enjoy 360° views of the island, including Palma Bay.
The construction of La Reserva began in 1986 and was declared of public utility and social interest by the Consell of Mallorca in August of 1992. The official opening took place on the 24 of October 1992.
Puig de Galatzo and its valley are considered very enigmatic, primarily following the legend of Comte Mal, a rich and eccentric noble who owned the land during the XVII Century. Local History tells us how the surviving Arabs hid in this area during the recon quest of the island by King Jaime I. Puig de Galatzo is also said to be one of the most magnetic mountains in Europe.
La Reserva is considered one of the areas with most plant diversity on the island. This diversity is due to the different landscapes from almost sea level to 1.026m, and the large amount of water.
Besides plants, La Reserva is home to a wide variety of animals including brown bears, fallow-deer, mouflons, donkeys, genets, goats, sheep, ostriches, emus, peacocks, geese, and thousands of ducks and other birds that come and go. Since 1992, the park is a hunt free area so animals feel safe to nest and breed.
The park is an ideal place to practice hiking, throughout 3,5 km of easy going paths, where one can enjoy the nature and the many water areas and waterfalls. Bird watching is one of the highlights, so remember to bring your binoculars.
After about and hours hike, one reaches the park’s main recreation area, where the barbeques and the bar lie. Here there is a choice of purchasing cooked meals, or cooking one’s meal on the fire. Drinks and coffee are also available.
Next to the bar, there are swings for the younger ones and the swimming area with waterfalls to cool down in the warmer months
Twice a day (morning and afternoon) and without the need to book in advance, there is the possibility to engage in adventure activities in the Adventure Park. Adventure activities include a variety of hanging bridges, rock climbing and zip lines / flying foxes of various lengths 400m, 250m, 150m.
