Fig Tree

The lost Garden of Eden

This wild yet peaceful trail follows bucolic country lanes and caminos to a seemingly impassable part of Ibiza’s wildest northern coast, where it plunges down an ancient trail to a hidden cove of historic fisherman’s huts. Here we dive into clear, cool and deep waters beneath rust red cliffs before following a once-forgotten farmer’s path through a bamboo forest to a rare fresh water source. A ruined finca and series of abandoned orchards, where 113 fig trees still flourish, give a thrilling sense of an Ibiza of centuries past, instilling a deep sense of peace and wonder. The clifftop sunset at the end of the lost hunter’s trail is one of Ibiza’s most dramatic.

They usually follow well-marked countryside caminos or coastal paths with minimal elevation gain. These hikes can be tailored to suit families, children and those with varying levels of fitness.

Intermediate Level.

No technical skill is required but these hikes may include sharp ascents and descents and cover rough terrain that offers more of a challenge. These hikes are suitable for hikers with a medium level of cardiovascular fitness and good sense of agility and balance. There may be avoidable areas of exposed heights unsuitable for those with vertigo.

Advanced Level.

These difficult trails will cover all types of terrain including loose shale underfoot and sections of coast which are particularly steep, rocky and slippery. There may be sections which are largely exposed, involve steep steps or ropes and have significant elevation gain. These hikes require a higher-than-average level of fitness and endurance and a resilient, positive mindset.

Expert Level.

These steep trails are physically taxing and hard to follow. Hikers may be required to ascend exposed cliff faces or descend using ropes. Routes will be rocky, climbing may be required and an expert level of agility and balance will be needed. These hikes are typically reserved for experienced hikers with advanced outdoor skills and knowledge and are not suitable for those with vertigo.
