“Estancias en la Serra” in Mallorca is the new program of the Consell to promote family sports. An extensive program that will take place throughout the first semester of 2021. The initiative begins with two weekends in Lluc within the “Sport for all” activities. In this way, the natural environment of Mallorca is taken advantage of, perfect for developing activities in small groups and outdoors.
This new program, which was very well received last year, aims to reach 120 users during the month of March. As spring progresses, the “Estancias en la Serra” will be extended with more adventure days in other centers of Mallorca. Even with sports days in hotels with the aim that families have the possibility of practicing sports in small groups and safe environments.
In total, the “Stays in the Serra” in 2021 will benefit 3,000 people, according to the Consell de Mallorca. This represents an increase compared to last year’s edition, inaugurated in Escorca, due to the high demand for the service.
Family sports weekends
At the moment, the program has sporting weekends planned at the Lluc inn. Participants will enjoy adventure activities, running training, hiking, Nordic walking, orientation gymkhanas, BTT, Pilates and other sessions in small groups of coexistence. All this under the current regulatory framework derived from the pandemic. The first edition of the sports adventure days will be on March 6 and 7, and the second on March 13 and 14.
How to enjoy the “Estancias en la Serra”?
Registration opens on February 22, 2021 at 8:00 p.m. on the Consell website. You can also request more information on 971 145 004 from Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The activity consists of a weekend stay with an overnight stay in family rooms. The program allows to distribute adults and children, according to the types of activity and the ages. The Insular Sports Directorate has a collaboration agreement with the Escorca City Council and with the hostel to promote sport and has expanded the number of monitors to carry out this activity in small groups.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, sports activities have adapted to the requirements set out in the new normal. Among the conditions that must be ensured in free time activities are a reduction in capacity and an increase in the number of days, staggered time entry or reduction of groups to do sports activities, among others. The Minister of Tourism and Sports, Andrés Sierra, points out that “these sports activities abroad respond to the demand in these difficult times and allow citizens to know the island’s offer of activities, as well as get to know our environment by doing sports.”
