A wonderfully gentle ride takes you from the turquoise waters of the south to the north coast giving you plenty of opportunity to enjoy the many unspoilt delights of Mallorca this tour unearths, not to mention the beaches along the way. We have chosen lovely boutique hotels - each with a pool - and a relaxed and flexible itinerary, perfect for a laid-back holiday.
Freewheeling through the previously unfashionable towns and villages of the lush interior where local traditions are as strong as ever, you discover almond and cherry orchards, vineyards and olive groves and the foothills of the World Heritage Sierra de Tramuntana. The local cuisine and wines are pretty good too. Enjoy!

1. Day one
Arrive Palma and Campos
Arrive at Palma de Mallorca airport and we will transfer you the short distance to Hotel Mas es Torrent in Campos where you will spend the first 2 nights of your trip. Enjoy the peace of this converted farmhouse and soak up the sun by the pool.
2. Day two
Campos circular ride
Enjoy a gentle pedal today to the nearby beaches of the south coast. Linger here awhile before heading back through the salt lagoons where flamingoes gather. Great locally sourced and home cooked food and local wines are served at your farmhouse if you wish to eat 'at home'.
Optional 25 miles (40 km)
3. Day three
Campos to Algaida
Say farewell to your friendly hosts at Campos and cycle down to the coast along country lanes. Then, heading inland there's a quiet pedal through delightful fields of almond trees. Stop and explore quaint harbour villages and towns such as Sa Rapita and Llucmajor before ending the day in the Petit Algaida Hotel which has a small but lovely pool.
23 miles ( 37 km)
4. Day four
Algaida circular ride
Another wonderfully unhurried day as you amble along stone walled lanes through unspoilt orchards and fields with the island's inland hills as a pretty backdrop. High on a ridge surrounded by old stone windmills lies the village of Montuiri and merits a short stop. By lunch time you will be near the lovely historic market town of Sineu. Get lost for a minute in the medieval streets before picking one of the many lovely tapaterias or restaurants.
Optional 28 miles (46 km)
5. Day five
Algaida to Selva or Caimari
Still riding north you head towards the Tramuntana Mountains today, but thankfully not up them! The riding is easy, the views and countryside large and ever rural and there's plenty of time to stop in the hamlets such as the quaint market town of Santa Maria del Cami, Santa Eugenia and Lloseta which are also lovely options to stop for lunch. Your home away from home for the next 2 nights is part of 2 small hotels right next to each other, guests of Sa Bisbal will be helped at the reception and will enjoy breakfast at the Hotel Can Cota next door.
26 miles (41.5 km)
6. Day six
Circular ride around Selva
You may like to laze around the pool today but for those wanting a spin, our route today leads you from the foothills back to the plains along typically Mediterranean landscapes of holm oak woodland, almonds, figs an caper tree groves. Here is one of the most beautiful areas of the island of Mallorca and a few hills and marvelous country lanes enroute will bring past hamlets such as Búger, Campanet, Ullaró, and many others. Take a rest or stop for a spot of lunch in the quiet agricultural town of Llubí, a typical Mallorquin town known for its cultivation of Capers surrounded by almond and carob trees.
Optional 26 miles (42 km)
7. Day seven
Selva to Pollenca
Your final day of cycling leads to the north east coast and to the historic town of Alcudia. A great stop for lunch as there is plenty of culinary delights to choose from. After lunch it is time to reflect and relax on the beach and soak up the sun and waves before pedalling the last few miles inland to the lovely medieval town of Pollenca and your hotel . Enjoy the cobbled streets and small squares, the street market and the wonderful choice of restaurants for your final night on the island
25 miles (40 km)
8. Day eight
It's a shame to leave the delights of medieval Pollenca but we will transfer you to the airport at Palma. If you have time, you might like to take a taxi and explore the historic centre of Palma itself before finally departing from Mallorca.
