Steep rocks, shimmering salt lakes, dreamy bays and ultimate peace and quiet.  It’s perhaps not the first thing you’d think about when you think of the Balearic island of Mallorca! But you will after this trip! You see the other side of Mallorca and the tour takes you to the quiet heart of the island.  In eight days you cycle through typical Malloran climes.  Olive groves, orange trees and sleepy little villages left and right, day after day.  At the end of your trip you’ll say only one thing: “Mallorca, mi corazon”!

Itineraries

Day 1

Arrival at Playa de Palma

From the airport by public transport or taxi to the start hotel.

Day 2

Playa de Palma – Colònia Sant Jordi 55 km

Welcome briefing. The tour takes you closely along the coastline to Capocorp Vell, the realm of the cyclops (ruins of native inhabitant’s 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 Majorca is the white sandy beach “Es Trenc”. In Sant Jordi, you can enjoy even more beaches with crystal clear water.

Day 3

Colònia Sant Jordi – Porto Cristo/surrounding 55 km

Via Ses Salines to a botanical garden. Visit 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!

Day 4

Porto Cristo/surrounding – C’an Picafort 60 km

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.

Day 5

C’an Picafort – Centre of Island/Inca 35 - 65 km

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 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.

Day 6

Tour around the Puig de Inca 55 km

Today’s tour takes you around the Puig de Inca, approximately 300 metres in height. You cycle through orange plantations and olive groves 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 winegrower’s village of Binissalem. This is the place where the most famous Majorcan wines are pressed and they can be sampled in various bodegas.

Day 7

Centre of Island/Inca – Playa de Palma 35 - 65 km

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.

Day 8
