Planning your bike holidays in Mallorca

Why choose a cycling holiday in Mallorca?

If you think that Mallorca is just for club-hopping, think again! This island is a true Mediterranean jewel. When you explore the island beyond the clubs and pubs of Palma and Magaluf, you'll find a stunning landscape that seems to be made for cyclists. Trails wind up dramatic mountains, giving you breathtaking ascents and descents with views that stretch across the Mediterranean Sea. Mallorca bike tours will show you a totally different side of the island. Lose yourself in the forests and rocky outcrops, or stop for lunch in a quiet, traditional village. At the end of the day, return to your holiday lettings in Mallorca and give yourself a well-deserved rubdown by the pool. Welcome to cycling paradise.

Where can you go on a Mallorca bike tour?

You'll find most of Mallorca's finest cycling routes in the north of the island, with the rocky northeast corner offering particularly good trails. It's easy to find cycling routes in Mallorca to suit cyclists of all levels. If you fancy a challenge, try Cap de Formentor, a dramatic route that Cyclist Magazine has named as one of the world's best cycle rides. The Tramuntana Coastal Road and Sa Calobra are also good for experienced cyclists, with hairpin bends and tough ascents. However, you don't need to be an experienced mountain biker to enjoy biking in Mallorca. The Orient Valley has largely flat roads that wind through vineyards and olive groves and is perfect for newcomers or younger cyclists.

The Best Routes for Bike Holidays in Mallorca

Cap de Formentor

Widely considered the jewel in Mallorca's crown, this is a must for the experienced cyclist. The Cap de Formentor route stretches over 98 kilometres, and you'll need strong legs for the 1,335 metres of climbing along the way. It's a tough journey, but you'll be rewarded with epic views of mountains, cliffs and sea throughout your adventure. Your final destination is the Formentor lighthouse, right at the northeast tip of the island. From there, you'll enjoy stunning sea views all the way to the neighbouring island of Menorca. In this area, you'll also find some great villas in Majorca, where you can relax and enjoy a well-deserved rest.

Tramuntana Coastal Road

You'll find a number of options for cycling along the Tramuntana Coastal Road, one of the most popular choices for bike tours in Mallorca. If you're ready for a challenge, follow the route from Pollença to Andratx. You'll be cycling for 110 km and climbing 2,520 metres. This includes the 13.7 km stretch on Puig Major, the highest road in Mallorca. Rocky mountains, hairpin bends and long descents make this a thrillingly varied route. If you prefer to tackle this part of the island on two feet, you'll also find plenty of walking trails, as this is one of the most popular spots for hiking holidays in Mallorca.

Sa Calobra

In the Mallorcan language, Sa Calobra means "the snake" - and when you tackle this route, you'll soon see why! It's just 10 km long, but it features no fewer than 26 hairpin bends. A magnet for professional cyclists, Sa Calobra is an extremely challenging climb. You'll have your heart in your mouth as you attempt El Nus de San Corbata, a 270-degree hairpin turn.

Orient Valley

Mallorca's most famous routes are known for their technical complexity and dramatic scenery. If your legs are aching at the thought, then try the Orient Valley instead. A cycling trip through this area will see you taking pleasant, flat roads that crisscross agricultural zones. It's a particular delight in the spring when the almond trees are in bloom. Follow the 151 km loop, which passes through charming, traditional villages like Algaida and Santa Eugènia. Stop for lunch at a local restaurant and enjoy the slower pace of life, a far cry from the tourist zones of Palma.
