If you want to discover the wildest and most natural side of Formentera, hiking is one of the best options for sports lovers. There are many green routes to choose from to be enjoyed walking or biking.
Formentera is living slowly, with no hurries, breathing peacefully and enjoying the calm, so much more during these low season months. It is an island that can be discovered by sea, earth or air. Wherever you look, she will not leave you indifferent, because she is paradisiac.
At Formotor we are always talking about the importance of renting a vehicle to travel the entire island (remember that we have electric vehicles that are more environmentally friendly), but there are other options to discover every corner and to do some sport on the way. Of course, if you want to discover the island walking or cycling we recommend you stay more days so you can really get to enjoy the experience.
If you come fewer days you can rent a vehicle to ensure you don’t miss any not-to-be-missed places but don’t forget to choose a special place and go for a walk, it really is the best way to immerse yourself in the nature of Formentera, to access places you can’t even see from the road and to fully appreciate the island from another point of view and in a very respectful and caring way.
You will find 32 circuits or green routes to walk or bike the island, around 100km of intertwined roads. You can consult the complete catalogue of green routes with all the main points of interest, geographical data, natural value and heritage value.
One of the most trendy sport disciplines nowadays is the ‘Nordic march ’, during the low season months you can come to the tourist information office at Sant Francesc and get the necessary walking canes.
If you’d rather go biking, you’ll be glad to know that the geography of Formentera is practically flat all around. Find out about the green routes that can be done on a bike because although the majority are easily accessible, some of them are not.
Although many people say that the island is so small that it you can see everything in a couple of days at most, you are going to discover the infinite island, the one that never ends, with multitude of hidden places to discover submerged in nature, in addition to its best known beaches, villages and street markets.
