How about a cycling holiday on one of the Mediterranean's most popular islands? Our cycling holiday on Mallorca makes this a reality! Our cycling holiday on Mallorca is as varied as the island itself is. Cycle along the coast, passing the finest sandy beaches and lovely little bays. Further inland you can expect to see traditional Mallorcan towns, sun-spoiled vineyards and gentle slopes up to the mountains. You start in Palma de Mallorca. In this busy island capital you'll experience a mixture of Spanish, Catalan and Arabian influences, which continue to shape this town today. Via Playa de Palma you get to the salt marshes at Colònia Sant Jordi and the typical Mallorcan windmills around Campos. Cycling over the fertile plateau of Es Pla you reach the coast again, where the beaches have an almost Caribbean flair to them around Alcúdia. After a detour to the Tramuntana mountains, your cycling holiday on Mallorca takes you back to Palma. Omnipotent: olive and citrus trees, stone-wall lined fields and a lot of culture which you will get to know on your almost 275 kilometre cycling holiday on Mallorca. For ambitious and experienced cyclists, these easy to medium-level routes are great.

Day 1: Individual arrival in Palma de Mallorca

Bienvenido a mallorca! Your cycling holiday on Mallorca starts in Palma, Mallorca's capital. Explore the historic quarter, shaped by its winding little streets and impressive buildings. One particular highlight in Palma is the might cathedral, not far from the harbour. Locally, it is referred to as Le Seu. This building can be seen from afar thanks to its imposing architecture. At your hotel you are invited to a information meeting during the evening. If you booked a hire bike, you can pick it up then too.

Day 2: Palma de Mallorca – Colònia Sant Jordi, approx. 65 km

The first section of your cycling holiday on Mallorca  takes you to Playa de Palma, Palma's beautiful 4.5 km-long beach. Not far from the coast, you now cycle to the prehistoric settlement, Capocorb Vell. Passing the traditional Mallorcan windmills, you get to the salt marshes - cultivated to gather salt - at  Colònia Sant Jordi, today's destination. Take a little detour to the next beach if you fancy, Es Trenc. White sand and turquoise sea plus the level dunes behind - make this beach one of Mallorca's most beautiful.

Day 3: Colònia Sant Jordi – Porreres, approx. 55 km

Before going inland, it's worth taking a stop in the picturesque bay of Cala Santanyi. Jump into the refreshing waves to cool down before the next slightly hilly leg of your tour. Felanitx is a great place for your next break. Located at the foot of Serres de Llevant, the town is in the middle of Mallorca's second largest wine region. You stay overnight in Porreres, just a few kilometres from here. The region is known for its apricot orchards. Try one a piece of this sun-spoiled fruit: halved and dried – a true delight!

Day 4: Trip to Campos, approx. 40 km

Windmills have a long-standing tradition on Mallorca. They used to be for grinding corn, pressing olives and for watering the fields. Today they are Mallorca's landmark. On today's trip on your cycling holiday on Mallorca you will see some of the island's best mills! You head for Campos where you'll see windmills that are several hundred years old. Some of them have been beautifully restored. Enjoy the quiet atmosphere of this idyllic place before cycling back to Porreres.

Day 5: Porreres – Alcúdia, approx. 55 km

On today's route on your cycling holiday on Mallorca you head back to the sea. You cycle to Petra first. The most famous son of this town is the missionary, Junípero Serra. The house in which the monk was born is now a museum. It tells of his long journey that took him to the US, where he established the town of San Francisco. Following the cycle path, you pedal through the corn chambers of Mallorca, Es Pla Your route is lined by beautiful fields and you cycle to the Playa del Muro. Take a longer break on this fine sandy white beach before you get to today's destination Alcúdia or Alcanada.

Day 6: Alcudia – Port de Sóller, approx. 55 km + transfer

You cycle the Tramuntana mountain range, your route lined with almond and citrus trees. The beauty of this mountain range, in the north west of Mallorca, comes from its wild nature, unspoiled countryside and peaks of up to 1445 metres. In Inca, leather capital of the island, a transfer (included) takes you to Lluc monastery. It is considered Mallorca's spiritual centre. A transfer takes you on upwards some 1200 metres. Back on your bike, you cycle down to Fornalutx. Frequently referred to as Spain's loveliest village, it features ocre coloured sandstone houses and the traditional window shutters. In Port de Sóller you have reached today's destination.

Day 7: Port de Sóller – Palma de Mallorca, approx. 45 km

On the last stage of your cycling holiday in Mallorca, you will once again enjoy breathtaking views over the sea. Along the rugged west coast with its magnificent landscape, you cycle past the picturesque villages of Deia and Valldemossa to Palma de Mallorca. Take another leisurely stroll through the magnificent alleys and enjoy the flair of the island's capital.
