Self-guided Cycling Tour to /from Playa de Palma

Standing on steep cliffs, overlooking quiet bays, you will feel the charm of Majorca far away from its rich night life. Majorca can whisper too: in the hills in the interior of the island, the wheels of the mills are turning gently and you can hear the cicadas chirping in the grass. On this tour you will cycle uphill and downhill – some nice climbs and descents are awaiting you. Perhaps those ups and downs are symbolic of the turbulent, 2,000-year history of the largest Balearic Island? Both the coastal as well as the inland areas have their own charms and you will get to know each of them. In the Dragon Caves of Porto Cristo you will experience how creative and sometimes bizarre the architecture of nature can be. The picturesque fishing villages and shimmering salt lakes will revive your sense of romance. And of course you will get many opportunities for swimming and sunbathing without booking a beach chair many hours in advance. “La Luminosa – The Enlightened One“ – that is how Spaniards refer to Majorca.

Tour character: Level 3

Holiday cyclist: The different stages are easy to moderate in difficulty: some climbs will be followed by pleasant descents; you cross the Tramuntana Mountains by bus. You will cycle on cycle paths, side roads and mainly on tarmacked agricultural roads, avoiding traffic as much as possible.
