Welcome briefing. The tour takes you closely along the coastline to Capocorp Vell, the realm of the cyclops (ruins of native inhabitants’ dwellings).
Typical wind turbines line the way to the saline fields of Llevant with its pink and white shimmering salt lakes. One of the most beautiful beaches in Mallorca Majorca is the white sandy beach ‚Es Trenc’. In Sant Jordi, you can enjoy even more beaches with crystal clear water.
Via Ses Salines to a botanical garden. Visit of the picturesque bay near Cala Santanyi. Then cycle through little fishing villages to the famous natural bridge ‚Es Pontas’.
Near Porto Cristo you find the dragon caves with bizarre shapes and wall paintings. We recommend a visit with a guided tour! Usually our hotel is located directly at the harbour.
Cycle via the sleepy village of Son Carrio to Manacor. Here you find the factories producing the famous artificial pearls, called ‚Majoricas’.
Countless little shops offer souvenirs and hand-made ceramic everyday objects. Via Petra (typical Majorcan lunch snack will be prepared) and Santa Margalida through one of the most enchanting landscapes of the island to C’an Picafort. Today you are back to the sandy beaches lining the coast.
Wonderful paths lead you along the World Cultural Heritage site Tramuntanas. This amazing mountain range serves as a backdrop for this valley lined by olive groves.
The especially diverse limestone caves of in Campanet are well worth a visit. Blending into the rural surroundings is also your accommodation for the next two days.
You spend the night in one of the so-called Hotel Rurales, which ooze special charm and are kept and run in the traditional Finca-style.
Today’s tour takes you around the Puig de Inca, approx. 300 metres in height. You cycle through orange plantations and olive groves you cycle to countless Majorcan villages.Typical stone walls and village squares are the perfect places for a break. We recommend you definitely have a stop in the winegrowers’ village of Binissalem.
This is the place where the most famous Mallorcan Majorcan wines are pressed and they can be sampled in various Bodegas.
A day of contrasts. Your tour starts in the rural hinterland and leads you through sleepy little villages. However, as soon as you reach the coast, the island is awake and pulsating along the Playa. A wide variety of restaurants and leisure activities provide an entertaining final day of this holiday.
At least one cycling holiday a year is pretty much compulsory for you! You are a perfect example of one of our typical guests, who regularly goes out for bike rides at the weekends. Now and again, you like to battle with a long, steep hill or a days cycle ride with an undulating profile. But, in order to have time to enjoy the rest of the ride, the route should then become flatter and more leisurely again afterwards.
Overall the terrain is slightly hilly without any longer ascents. You cycle on side roads, rural tracks and also on cycle paths, with always as little traffic as possible. Nearly the entire route is asphalted.
Total distance cycled: 355 km
