Away from the hustle and bustle, we have found two special places for you to stay. It is particularly charming and traditional where you will be staying for the week on Majorca. The cycle paths are also selected so that they fit with where you are staying. You will be cycling across gentle hills through the agriculturally characterised back country. Everything gets grown here that tastes good… you will encounter olives, almonds, lemons and wine with every pedal. But of course the sea cannot be forgotten about in Majorca! Two wonderful bike stages take you along the coast in order to show you the crystal clear water surrounding Spain’s best known island. Spend your holiday with us on the Balearic island, which is especially stylish and close to nature!
Fair weather cyclist: Overall a slightly hilly route without any larger hills. You will cycle on side roads, agricultural roads and also on cycle paths, always with as little traffic as possible. The route is almost always on tarmac.Overall a slightly hilly route without any larger hills.

Campanet 4* hotel: The building, located about 2km from Campanet, was built in the 13th Century when the Moors ruled Majorca. It is a very charismatic witness of the impressive history of this island. Since the 16th Century, this estate was used as a mansion and has therefore been kept in outstanding condition over the years and has preserved the old stone walls. On these wonderful premises you will find an old olive press and a windmill from the year 1680. Along with the comfortable rooms, there is an outdoor pool, an indoor pool and the spa and wellness centre with whirlpool, sauna and steam room for sheer relaxation.
Porreres: Finca 4* hotel:This historical country house, which is located about 5km outside of Porreres, was first restored scrupulously and properly several years ago. A haven of peace and relaxation was created with an astonishing attention to detail. The excellent restaurant was housed in the former wine cellar and it is here that the Majorcan cuisine is being newly interpreted. The rooms provide a pleasant stay and are decorated in a classic style. After each day on the bike, you can spend time by the luxurious pool in the shade of the lemon trees.

The particularly varied stalactites in Campanet (included in tour package) are another highlight.
Tour around the Puig de Inca approx. 55 km
Today’s tour takes you around the Puig de Inca, approx. 300 metres in height. Through orange plantations and olive groves you cycle to countless Majorcan villages, their typical stone walls and village squares are the perfect places for a break. We recommend you definitely take a break in the winegrowers’ village of Binissalem. This is the place where the most famous Majorcan wines are pressed and can be sampled in various Bodegas.
Campanet – Porreres approx. 45 km
You will cross gentle hills where olive and almond trees grow, you cycle in a lively manner from place to place. Buger, Muro and Montuiri are all located on your way today and are attractive island villages. Sineu is well-known for its weekly farmer markets (only Wednesdays). This small town is also geographically the central point of the island. The wonderful paths lead you further on to Porreres to your next accommodation.
Trip to Porto Cristo approx. 40 km + Transfer
You will cycle on isolated paths across meadows and fields to Manacor. Companies produce the famous Majorcan artificial pearls here. Souvenirs and articles of daily use made out of handmade ceramic are sold in numerous shops. Soon afterwards you will then be able to smell the sea. Porto Cristo bay is perfect for swimming or you could go visit the famous dragon caves. In the late afternoon, you can take the transfer back to Porreres.
Trip to Campos and its wind turbines approx. 40 km
Nowhere else in the world will you find so many windmills as in Majorca. In the past, they were an important part of agriculture on the island. Their role was varied, either to grind the grain or to pump water into the fields. You will go past quite a few nice examples on today’s stage. You can lengthen the stage by about 10km if you want to visit the famous sandy beach “Es Trenc”.
Departure or extension of your stay
It would be nice to spend a couple more days here in Palma. Extra nights can be booked in our lovely 4**** hotel directly by the harbour and only a short walk away from the centre.
