Jeep Safari Discovery Menorca - Island Discovery

If you are under the impression that Menorca is just a small island in the Mediterranean with fabulous beaches, surrounded by breath taking transparent blue sea, you will be impressed by this excursion.

An experienced guide will take you to some of the most stunning and exclusive locations accessible via private rural tracks. You will be able to enjoy some outstanding scenery, and learn about the culture and history of an island which is full of contrasts.

Jeep Safari Menorca offers a customised experience. You will have the opportunity to pet Menorcan horses, enjoy some of the most scenic landscapes, including steep cliffs and gorges, have a refreshing swim in warm turquoise waters, feel the gentle breeze as you travel along quaint rural trails on board one of our comfy vehicles.

Menorca is a natural Biosphere Reserve, it is shaped by gullies which lead to unspoiled coves, it hosts a wide variety of fauna and flora dotted around farmland separated by characteristic dry stone walls.

You will spend the day travelling on board a 4×4 vehicle which will take you on a trip to discover some of Menorca’s hidden treasures, along rural tracks, feeling the sun and wind in your face. A unique experience.

LIGHTHOUSES PERCHED ON CLIFFS


Scanning the horizon from the clifftops, the lighthouses of Menorca tell tales of shipwrecks, pirates and caves with hidden treasures. A sea full of adventure surrounds the island which can be both exciting and relaxing.

AMAZING GULLIES WITH TRICKY ACCESS


These gullies are hard to get to but with access to private paths through farms we can reach them. These steep valleys provide breath taking scenery, they are humid enough to support plentiful spectacular flowers and fruit trees… while the birds of prey fly elegantly between the cliffs and hide in small caves.

SPECTACULAR QUARRIES

Enchanting spaces left behind in the white rock which used to be used to build houses. Interesting shapes remain where blocks were carved out and the cuts made by quarrymen years ago are still visible. Vegetation now fills these spaces with colour, though now they have fallen into disuse, they were once full of craftsmen who created this peculiar landscape, block by block.

BEAUTIFUL UNSPOILED COVES


From the path you will be able to see the pristine north coast beaches with their transparent blue sea. Surrounded by rich red soils, their golden sand and rocky outcrops form fascinating scenery. Scenery which is both uplifting and inspiring

THE TRADITIONAL CRAFT OF CHEESEMAKING

They say that Menorcan cheese tastes of the sea, curiously this is partly due to the salty sea breezes which blow on to the meadows where the cattle graze. We will be shown how this Menorcan delicacy is handcrafted using ancestral methods. You will be able to try the different varieties of this cheese, which has been granted Protected Designation of Origin status.
