The footsteps of the ancient gods

This mesmerizing hike follows forest and coast paths through raw, primitive and untouched landscapes in the far northeast of Ibiza. We will experience spectacular views, incredible swimming spots and an extraordinary rock arch, before discovering the sacred cave of Es Cuilleram. This Punic sanctuary, some 150m above sea level, is where Ibiza’s ancient population worshipped Tanit, their Mother Goddess, in a natural cavern with otherworldly views out across the Mediterranean towards the islet of Tagomago. We will sit in silence and solitude and soak up the transformational energy of this most sacred of locations.
