Located off the coast of Spain, the island of Majorca serves as an ideal setting for a bike tour. This loop tour of Majorca cycles around the entire island, visiting new and exciting sights and towns each day.
If this island was a woman, she would have the reputation of a fancy pin-up girl. However, meeting her, one would be astonished by her naturalness. Standing on steep cliffs, overlooking quiet bays, you will feel the charm of Mallorca far away from its rich night life.
Mallorca 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 await you. Perhaps those ups and downs are symbolic of the turbulent, 2,000-year history of the largest Balearic Island? Both the coastal and the inland areas have their own charm 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 Spainiards refer to Mallorca. Doesn’t this sound more like the name of a saint than of a pin-up girl?
A great time to visit Majorca is in February, when you can see the island's almond trees in bloom.
Note: this itinerary is subject to change at Almond Blossom season, the first few dates of travel in February and March, due to some hotels being unavailable.
