Mallorca - Loop Tour

Well-known island with its unknown sides.

If this island was a woman, she would have the reputation of a fancy pin-up girl. However, upon meeting her, one would be astonished by her naturalness. 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. Doesn’t this sound more like the name of a saint than a pin-up girl?

Itinerary

Welcome reception and discussion of the tour. Your first stage will take you along the coast to Capocorp Vell, the Realm of the Cyclops (remnants of the native inhabitant dwellings). Typical wind mills line the way to the salt fields of Llevant with its pink and white shimmering salt lakes. In Sant Jordi, sandy beaches with crystal clear water are awaiting you.

Today, you will cycle through Ses Salines to a botanical garden and visit the picturesque bay of Cala Santanyi. Later, you will continue your journey through small fishing villages to the famous natural bridge “Es Pontas”. At Porto Cristo you will discover the Dragon Caves with their bizarre images and shapes.

On the fourth day, you will cycle through the sedate village of Son Carrio to Manacor, the city of the Majorcan beads and pottery. Afterwards, your journey will take you through Petra (typical Majorcan lunch snack will be prepared) and Santa Margalida and through one of the most charming landscapes of the island to C’an Picafort.

You do not need to pack your suitcase today. You will stay for another night in C’an Picafort. Today’s tour will take you through a bird park (nature reserve) to the Bay of Pollensa (Roman port). Later, you will continue along the coast to Alcúdia (oldest city of the island) and back to C’an Picafort.

By tram to Sóller (excl.). The nostalgic train will take you through the valley of oranges down to the capital Palma (picking fruits is prohibited during the train ride.). There, you will get a guided tour of the beautiful old town. Later, you will continue by bike along the coast to Playa de Palma.
