      7 night self guided bike tour in Spain

      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.

      Breath-taking views of the sea are accompanying you on the last cycling day. You will cycle through the picturesque towns of Deia and Valldemossa until you get to the West coast of the island leading you to the city of Palma. The capital city, with its narrow alleys and squares, is a delight to explore as you return to the place where your tour began.
      Overnight in Playa de Palma

      Day 8: Playa de Palma
      This is the end of your tour. You may arrange for a longer stay in Playa de Palma or arrange for a taxi to the airport.

        Great ride but horrible bikes

        We enjoyed generally the trip locations. Ride instructions were definitely a little fuzzy at times but generally good. The bikes were horrific. They had these heavy, equipment laden bikes that were meant for city riding and not going through the countryside. Not the type of bike meant for doing long hill climbs. Hotels were fine and had good locations, but again instructions to get to them were not great. We had to incur roaming charges to find one because the instructions they gave to find it would have put us the next town over.

          Hi Bill, thanks kindly for the feedback. We appreciate you letting us know about the bikes being heavy and that the instructions could be improved. Most tours we offer are on hybrid touring bikes, and we can certainly understand they are often heavier bikes than most clients have at home. We'll surely pass your feedback onto the tour operator in order to improve their operations. We're glad to hear you enjoyed the ride and locations you visited regardless. Thanks again for sharing your thoughts.

        Very enjoyable island loop

        We hadn't been to Majorca before. This was a great way to explore it. The maps were excellent and the bikes were good quality city / touring bikes. The Euro-bike stickers on street signage are really helpful.

        Beautiful place to cycle!

        Majorca is truly a lovely island. Breathtaking coastal views and lovely pastoral scenery inland. Had some great lunches in the local towns. The arrangements were excellent. Good bikes, routes easy to follow, all hotels top-notch.

        Great trip.

        This was our first self guided tour. Almost everything was perfect. There are a couple of suggestions that may make the trip even better. Even though this was a self guided tour there were other people who were doing the tour at the same time. We saw them here and there but did not get to meet them and talk to them until 5th day at the luncheon. It would have been nice to have that lunch earlier so we could meet and interact sooner. We missed out on potential good friendship and interaction with others.
        The WiFi service was poor in most places. I use it regularly to stay in touch with family back home. The last place we stayed gave us individual wifi codes and it worked great.
        We would have loved to stay two nights at the Port de Soller instead of Can Picafort. That was the most beautiful area and we just did not have enough time to explore the area.
        The food was hit and miss but OK overall.
        I would suggest finding small restaurants with daily special menu for lunches. We had our best food on our trip in a little town in a very small restaurant.
        We will definitely do this kind of trips again.

        Loop tour mallorca

        The trip was fantastic, Euro Bike were alway available. The hotels were all 4 star. Every town we stayed in had points of interest. I have done a lot of biking in Europe & would use Euro Bike again. Only thing I would change is the option to be billed in Euros on my visa without a visa sèvice fee, other companies do this.
