South of the Tramuntana Sierra lies Es Pla, the profoundly rural and gently undulating central plain of Mallorca. Its fertile red soil contrasts sharply with the deep green of the carob trees and the pale almond blossom which lights up the area each spring. Hundreds of small farmsteads, dotted about the plain, are connected by a network of tracks and lanes. These are perfect for two-wheeled meanderings, as you make your way gradually towards the dramatic headlands and quiet coves of the north-east coast of the island.

 

This highly praised route leads you from the fertile central plain to the more undulating north-eastern corner of the island where the coast is the original ‘Costa Brava’ lined with secret bays and rocky coves. You cycle through ravishing landscapes along quiet country lanes and stay in a converted town house and two country estates of very high quality along the way. With two nights at each, you can spend your 'free' days following our circuits or just relaxing in the sunshine – the choice is entirely yours!
