3 modalities: hiking, MTB, trail running
To begin with, it is possible to do Camí de Cavalls 360º in three modalities. It is a route that can be done on foot (hiking), biking (MTB) or running (trail running). You just have to choose which adventure you like the most and prepare to enjoy it thoroughly.
Hiking allows you to discover the enormous diversity of landscapes that Menorca offers in a calmer way. The pace of the hikers is ideal for having the necessary break to fully experience the essence of Menorca and its many shapes, colors and aromas. You will be able to fill your backpack with indelible memories and unique pictures.
The Camí de Cavalls 360º MTB route is a frenetic track and a notable challenge. The Camí de Cavalls features a rough and highly technical terrain, with constant short but intense ups and downs that test the ability and physical level of the athletes, as well as their mental strength. Anyway, you will have the possibility of adapting the route to your level, with three options: Standard route, of intermediate difficulty, which avoids 30% of the most difficult sections of Camí de Cavalls; Plus, of maximum difficulty, absolutely faithful to the Camí de Cavalls and only recommended for very expert cyclists in search of new challenges on two wheels; Basic, of less difficulty, which runs approximately 50% along alternative paths to the Camí de Cavalls.
Trail running offers the possibility of facing a demanding route, which runs mostly along rough paths where runners must always pay attention to where they take the next step. Continuous, short but intense ups and downs, uneven terrain and wonderful surroundings complete the menu.
You can choose the number of stages
Camí de Cavalls 360º allows you to divide the 185 kilometers of the itinerary into the number of stages that best suits your availability and level. If you have opted for the hiking modality, we have designed the route in 6, 7, 8, 10 or 13 stages. In any of the options, you will have accommodation near the start and end of each stage, or the organization team will pick you up and take you to this point if it is a more isolated area.
Mountain bike lovers will be able to do the same between three and six stages, regardless of whether they have chosen the Basic, Standard or Plus route. Finally, the participants in the trail running modality have at their disposal a plan to complete the route between four and eight stages.
All round or half?
As we know, sometimes, your availability of time and your level do not adjust to be able to do the entire Camí de Cavalls 360º tour. So we offer participants a very interesting intermediate option. You can divide the route in two and opt for the 180º N of the north coast or the 180º S of the south coast, always taking Maó and Ciutadella as references and start and end points.
In this way, many groups choose to do the 180º N version first and leave the 180º S version for later… or vice versa. In the end, it is the same dose of landscapes and Menorcan essence with less accumulated fatigue.
What are the best dates?
Another detail to take into account when coming to do Camí de Cavalls 360º is the calendar. In this case, we have very good news: we are open all year! Menorca is a Mediterranean island with a mild climate and a magnificent setting to come and practice outdoor activities at any time.
