Route DetailsDay 1: Arrival Cala Blava/Puig d’en Ros
From the airport by taxi to the first hotel in Cala Blava – Puig d’en Ros (approx. 10 km).

Day 2: Cala Blava – Colònia Sant Jordi approx. 50 km
After a welcome briefing, tour information and distribution of the rental bicycles, the first day's ride follows the coast to Capocorp Vell, passing the 'Residence of the Cyclopes' (remainders of ancient settlements). Traditional Majorcan windmills line the road to the salt fields of Llevant with its rose-white shimmering salt lakes. Arriving at Colónia Sant Jordi you're welcomed by sandy beaches and crystal clear water.

Day 3: Colònia Sant Jordi – Porto Cristo approx. 60 km
Today's route leads via Ses Salines to 'Botanicactus', one of Europe's largest botanical gardens. Visiting the picturesque bay of Cala Santanyi, we then ride through fishing villages to the famous natural "Es Pontas" bridge to Porto Cristo and the bizarre rock formations of the Dragon Caves.

Day 4: Porto Cristo – C’an Picafort approx. 55 km
A fabulous day cycling through the sleepy hamlets to Manacor - the city famous for its pearls and ceramics and with, every Monday, the busiest street market in Majorca. Via Santa Margalida ("most beautiful village square of Majorca") we then ride through delightful scenery to C’an Picafort, where we spend two nights.

Day 5: Port de Pollenca/Alcúdia approx. 45 km
No need to pack the suitcase today as we'll follow a circular route through the bird sanctuary at S'Albufera to the bay of Pollenca (originally a Roman harbour). Further along the coast we reach Alcúdia (the oldest town of the island) before heading back to C’an Picafort.

Day 6: C’an Picafort – Port de Sóller*** approx. 45 km + Bus transfer
Via Muro and Inca, you'll cycle through the island's interior to the beautiful mountains of the Sierra. With a bus transfer through the Tramuntana Mountains to the monastery at Lluc (sightseeing possible) we'll ascend to 1200 m above sea level then enjoy a beautiful descent via Fornalutx (called 'the most beautiful village of Spain' and where you'll be served a price-included Paella dinner) and pass through orange- and citrus-plantations to Port de Sóller.

Day 7: Port de Sóller – Playa de Palma approx. 20 km + train transfer
Using the old-fashioned 'Red Thunderbolt' train you'll travel through the Valley of Oranges (no picking of fruit during the ride!) down to the capital, Palma. Afterwards you'll join a guided sightseeing tour of the old town and cathedral. Then it's time to cycle the last few kilometres along the coast to ther final hotel stop in Playa de Palma.
