When the summer heat gets too hot to handle, you need an activity or a place to go walking that’s more in the shade and has natural “cooling system”. Walking in Dalt Vila might just be it with its tunnels and getaways to beautiful museums. Read more about tips for walking in Ibiza summer weather.

Routes to go walking in Dalt Vila

You can easily get lost when walking in Dalt Vila. Not lost completely, because it still is a small area and you will find your way out soon enough, but you might miss out places if you don’t have a map or suggestions. I found it very useful to follow the paths put together by the Tourist Board of Ibiza and you can find the walking routes for Dalt Vila here. You can choose from three routes, I’d suggest the Unknown route and the route taking you all around Dalt Vila wall. And, don’t forget to be curious and make little detours to little streets that the map does not take you to.

One word of warning when walking in Dalt Vila: the stones are really smooth and can be very slippery. High heels and flat, smooth shoes are dangerous, be cautious when walking on the little streets of Dalt Vila.


Walking lifestyle – keeping you fit, mentally and physically

Don’t forget we all need time-off from our daily lives. Walking is the easiest and accessible thing to do that. Go out for a walk, share your thoughts and inspirations with me via e-mail. My aim is to show how easy it is to find little walks, little time-off-chunks in life to keep you mentally and physically fit. Wherever you are.
