COASTAL CLASSIC MALLORCA CYCLING TOUR - 7 DAYS - GUIDED OR SELF-GUIDED
This is very similar to our "classic" 7 days itinerary, but we chnage one of the middle locations to Port Pollensa, so you'd get to spend a couple of extra nights by the sea. Including Port Pollensa instead of Selva, makes this itinerry more appropriate for group of friends, rather than couples, groups with younger members, and also for warmer months so you could enjoy some swimming after riding. It still 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, that part is always there.
We adjust the itinerary to your dates, number of people, and personal preferences. Trip can be self guided, with Support-and-Gear vehicle or fully supported with SAG and Local Cycling guide usually including meals and other events.
4 stars intimate boutique hotels and rural bed & breakfasts, with small numbers of rooms, charming locations and friendly local staff. and of course very cyclist friendly and with great bike facilities

Multiple days over 70 Km and some challenging terrain with shorter and easier options each day and some transfers to cut the ride shorter if you wish.
Electric bikes are a great options if your group has different levels

2300 euros per person for 2pax.

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 - ARRIVAL. 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 - MONASTERIES. 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.
PORT POLLENSA - 2 Nights
The coastal town of Port Pollensa is the most popular cycling hub in Mallorca and for good reason. Great location for tackling the ride to Cap Formentor Lighthouse, one of the classics of the island, a good variety of Spanish and international food restaurants, and many good little corners where to sip a “cafecito” after your morning ride. Good place to get our guests favourite souvenir, a Mallorca cycling jersey.
DAY 3 - TO THE SEA. We’ll have a transfer ride from Sineu towards the North and to your new hotel, La Goleta de Mar, and again there will be different options of length of ride and amount of climbing. The Long ride heads towards the Binissalem wine country before riding up to the Puig de Santa Magdalena near Inca and then riding through the Agricultural area of Sa Pobla and into Port Alcudia where you detour towards Alcanada for lunch by the sea at La Terraza. The Medium and Short rides can ride directly out of Sineu towards Llubi with the optional climb up Puig de Santa Magdalena or ride directly to La Terraza for lunch by the sea.
Ride: 46 - 85 Km with 230 - 680m of climbing.
DAY 4 - FORMENTOR LIGTHOUSE. 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 visit the charming old town of Pollença and have lunch there or in the cove Cala Sant Vicenç by the beach.
Ride: 40 - 65 Km with +1000m of climbing.
Hotel La Goleta de Mar - Located in a prime spot, on a pedestrian promenade, overlooking one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. It offers everything you need to experience a fabulous, relaxing holiday, whether as a couple, with friends or colleagues.
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 - SA CALOBRA. 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 Pollensa to Coll de Feminia, and before the great 14 Km descent from the Monnaber Tunnel to Port de Soller. 85 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.
DAY 6 - DAY IN PORT SOLLER. 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 - SW COAST. 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/
