The adventure Bergzeithelden starts at the exit of the village Caimari, which is commonly known by its annual olive festival called ‘die Fira de Olivas’. The ascent to Coll de Sa Bataia consists of a run of approximately 8km(5miles) passing through a high valley with mostly dense forest, including picturesque crag trenches and terrassed olive groves.
