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!

Itinerary day-by-day


Classic

  1. 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. 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. 3. Day three

    Campos to Randa

    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 stare in quaint villages and hamlets far from the madding crowd before finding Es Recó de Randa with its lovely pool where you will stay the next two nights.

    24 miles ( 38 km)

  4. 4. Day four

    Randa 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. The market town of Sineu is maybe where you will choose to have lunch but there are plenty of nice village stops too.

    Optional 25 miles (41 km)

  5. 5. Day five

    Randa to Moscari

    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. Your overnight stay lies in the foothills of the mountains with a pool and superb restaurant and you will be the guest of Hotel Can Calco or Hotel Can Riera for the next two nights.

    25 miles (40 km)

  6. 6. Day six

    Circular ride from Moscari

    You may like to laze around the pool today but for those wanting a spin, our route leads you into the foothills of the Tramuntana. Here is one of the most beautiful areas of the island of Mallorca and a few hills enroute will bring great rewards.

    Optional 23 miles (36 km)

  7. 7. Day seven

    Moscari to Pollenca

    Your final day of cycling leads to the north east coast and to the historic town of Alcudia. 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 where your hotel will be either Hotel L´Hostal or Hotel Juma, both in the main square . 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. 8. Day eight

    Depart Palma

    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.
