Discover the vibrant coast and rural hinterland of Mallorca on two wheels on this self-guided cycling holiday.
Mallorca is certainly the seducer of the Balearics for cyclists and hikers alike with sunshine almost all year round, hidden coves, turquoise waters, breath-taking mountains and most importantly miles upon miles of quiet roads to be cycled. We have specially designed this one week self-guided cycling holiday to showcase some of our favourite spots on the island. Starting in Playa de Palma you will first cycle along the southern coast, taking in the history of the island and the enchanting botanical gardens of Ses Salines, before following the east coast to Cuevas del Drach to discover the island’s fascinating geology. Heading north you can delight in the quieter beaches and fantastic views across Alcudia Bay. The second part of your adventure provides an insight into island life behind the tourist resorts; escaping to the centre of the island to discover slower rural life on the island, filled with orange plantations and olive groves as you pedal beneath the awe-inspiring Tramuntana Mountains.
You will spend 3 days circumnavigating the beautiful bustling coast, staying in a fantastic selection of 4* hotels on a half board basis before retreating to the hinterland to unwind in the tranquillity of our finca-style hotel for two nights on a bed and breakfast basis and experience the nearby traditional restaurants each evening. As your week draws to a close you cycle back to the beaches of Playa de Palma for one last dip in the inviting ocean and to explore the island’s capital, Palma.
