Thanks to its unparalleled natural environment and its pleasant weather, Mallorca is an ideal destination for sports tourism. But what is sports tourism?
Sports tourism, also known as active tourism, is a type of travelling that consists in practicing sports in the chosen destination. It is an increasingly popular type of tourism that is gaining new followers year after year.
Thus, increasingly, sports and tourism go hand in hand in Mallorca, and the pairing presents itself as a solid alternative to sun and beach. The island offers the perfect backdrop in which to practice sports such as cycling, rock climbing or sailing, and it hosts internationally renowned events such as the Palma de Mallorca Marathon, the Challenge Paguera-Mallorca, the K42 Mallorca or the qualifying tests for the Ironman.
Among its countless possibilities, the island counts with a large number of trekking routes that traverse its mountains, coasts, history and culture. That is why, from Galben Travel & Business, we didn’t want to miss the chance to publicise this gem of our island, and in collaboration with the Royal Dutch Trekking Association (KWBN), the city hall of Calvià and the Hotel Association of Paguera and Cala Fornells we set out to organize the Mallorca Walking Event: La Primavera.
The trekking event took place in April 7-10 in various points of the Mallorcan geography, and it brought together about 500 participants, most of them Dutch, who traversed together some of the most idyllic locations of the municipality of Calvià.
As organizers, we are very proud of the success and the good feedback of the event, and we are convinced that for the 2017 edition we will be able to count with the presence of up to a thousand participants.
From here we wish to thank all collaborators and make a special mention of the Balearic Tourism School, the students of which offered us their valuable help.
We, at Galben, love sport and its values, and we firmly believe that incorporating it into corporate and incentive trips brings many advantages. As a company that organised sports events we propose comprehensive projects that, on the one hand, meet the expectations of the participants, but that, on the other hand, also meet the goals set by the organisation.
