DISCOVER MALLORCA CLASSIC CYCLING TOUR - 7 DAYS - GUIDED OR SELF-GUIDED
Our "classic" week-long Mallorca cycling Holiday is our most popular itinerary, and for good reason. We think that for a week of cycling around Mallorca, there's no better combination than this one. It includes (or can include depending how much you want to ride) all the classic rides on the island including Cura and San Salvador Monasteries, Cap Formentor Lighthouse, Sa Calobra and the amazing SW coast. A great mix of rolling terrain and iconic climbs, charming countryside and quiet little medieval villages, stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea and the Tramuntana mountains, cosy intimate hotels, and the chance to try some of the best gastronomy and wines on the island.... Quintessential Mills & Honey!

SINEU - 2 Nights
Once the Capital of Mallorca, Sineu sits practically in the middle of the island so it’s a great place to explore the inland region of Mallorca which offers great variety and charm. On Wednesdays they have the farmers market that have been running from the 1300’s and it’s quite cool thing to watch with the whole town dressing up for it, live music if the weathers fine, and lots of local products and even animals for sale. Really remarkable, so hopefully with your arrival day we could fit a Wednesday so you can enjoy this cultural highlight of Mallorca.
DAY 1 - Will be Arrival day. We will arrange a transfer to Sineu (35 minutes) where we will met you review the itinerary, have a safety and logistics briefing, bike fit and hopefully, depending on the time of your arrival, you can go for a quick 20-40 Km loop ride around Petra, VilaFranca and Sant Joan with an optional climb to Bonany Hermitage.
DAY 2 - Today you'll have different options to ride towards the South East of Mallorca the longest route including the climb up to San Salvador Monastery, one of the classic climbs on this part of the island and from where you get some amazing views of the whole island and the East Coast and then the short and steep climb to Bonany Hermitage near Petra.
If you prefer a shorter ride today you'll have different easier loops of between 45 and 75 km through the charming villages of Montuiri, Porreres, Sant Joan and Petra.
Ride: 45 to 85 km with 400 or 900m climbing.
Can Joan Capó is a traditional Majorcan home that’s been transformed into a romantic four-star boutique hotel. Each of the ten guest rooms has its own character and most of the furniture has been handmade. The hotel is the perfect choice for those who are looking for peace and quiet, good food, a special something and a personalised service.
SELVA - 2 Nights
It’s a lovely little village on the foothills of the Tramuntana where there’s great riding wherever you ride with lots of variety as you can ride straight into the Mountains, North and South along the foothills of the Tramuntana or head inland for some more flatter and easier terrain. Here you have a couple of choices of Hotels depending if you’d like to be right in the little village or a couple of Km away in a very quiet rural B&B, and some very special restaurants for planning a special dinner out.
DAY 3 - The ride takes you down South before you head North to your destination for the next couple of nights, Selva. The full route takes you through some rolling terrain along quiet country roads to Algaida where you start heading up to Cura Monastery. After a coffee break at the top (recommended) you'll ride down into the Binissalem wine country towards Puig de Santa Magdalena, where could help yourself to an epic Pamboli lunch. 88 Km the full route, or if you wish to skip one or the two climbs you'll have a much easier 54, 65 or 75 Km options.
DAY 4 - Cap Formentor Lighthouse today. One of Mallorca's iconic cycling routes and in the bucket list of many cyclists around the world. With amazing views of the Mediterranean Sea, it's a constant up and down, twists and turns which take to the most Northerly point in Mallorca. An early start is recommended to avoid most of the traffic. After coming back from the Lighthouse, we suggest you take a detour to beautiful Cala Sant Vincent for a great sea food lunch by the sea. It's a long 98 Km from the hotel and back, but we can offer shuttles to start the ride in Port Pollensa cutting the ride short to 65 Km.
Hotel Son Ametler a lovely rural boutique 2 Km form Selva and Caimari villages, in a really quiet area at the foothills of the Tramuntana mountains, run by our good friends James and Paola and offering great breakfasts and dinners. http://www.hotelsonametler.com/

PORT SOLLER - 2 Nights
Port de Soller it’s a natural harbour set in a gorgeous Valley in the heart of the Tramuntana mountains range, with dramatic views of the mountains meeting the Med. The valley is famous for its tasty and juicy oranges, and the Soller Red Prawns, plus walking along the waterfront in the lovely harbour on a bright spring or fall evening it’s just idyllic.
Day 5 it's an epic ride along the Tramuntana including a detour to the world famous Sa Calobra, a must-do for any cyclists coming to Mallorca, and the main reason why Mallorca is so famous in the cycling world, but that's after the beautiful climb from Caimari to Coll de Sa Bataia, and before the great 14 Km descent from the Monnaber Tunnel to Port de Soller. 70 Km with almost 2000m climbing, so we have shuttle options or you could even jump in the ferry in Sa Calobra that takes you to very near your hotel.
DAY6 is a great day to have rest day or at least a day off the saddle so we could plan a good hike along the coast to lovely Deia, maybe plan a short 40 Km ride to go for winery visit for lunch and wine tasting or also plan a water activity like a boat day or kayaking along the coast.
Hotel Esplendido Overlooking the beautiful Puerto de Soller on the quiet pedestrian promenade and surrounded by the majestic Tramuntana mountains, offering both sea and garden views, this charming hotel has everything you may need.
PALMA DE MALLORCA - 1 Night
The capital of the island and a cool little city to finish the trip off and have a last evening in town wandering around the narrow and charming streets of the old town with its many bars and restaurants, art galleries, boutiques, and the wonderful Palma Cathedral. Also a good idea to have next morning in town so you can pay a visit to the municipal markets and have some fresh seafood direct from the stalls.
DAY 7 Today is the cherry on top of the cake, and what we think is the best ride in Mallorca along the SW coast passing the stunning coastal villages of Deia, Banyalbufar, Estellencs, and Andratx all the way to Sant Elm for a great lunch at Es Moli, where we could pick you up and drive you back to Palma for a last night in town, a great way to finish the trip, and only a 15 minutes drive to the airport the following morning. 70 and 50 Km options.
Nakar Hotel is a modern design hotel located in the heart of Palma de Mallorca in Jaime III Avenue, one of the busiest and central streets of the city, right on the edge of the old town and walking distance to many art galleries, bars and restaurants. https://nakarhotel.com/
