You stay on traditional fincas in Santa Maria and Campanet, in picturesque surrounding in the tributary valley of the tramuntana mountains, far away from the highway of mass tourism - experience Majorca in its originality. On this bike tour you discover the grand north and the centre of the island and majorca's peaceful side.
TOURPROFILE: the stages are medium. You cycle on side roads, farm roads and tracks, alsways with as little traffic as possible.
Individual arrival to the Finca Torrent Fals in Santa Maria.
You take the train to Palma for a city tour by bike – our bike city guide will await you for a historical city tour. The cathedral is on the programme. You return by train to Santa Maria (or you remain on the Playa de Palma and linger on the beach). You cycle the last stretch to the finca.
Sunday excursion into Majorca’s wine region (vineyards have existed here since 1229, when James I of Aragon conquered Majorca). You cycle to Eugenia and enjoy the small side paths (camis) with the typical Majorcan stone walls between the grapevines, olive groves and almond trees in Algaida. Good restaurants invite for a lunch break. The return journey takes you through Sencelles to our departure point in Santa Maria.
Suitcases are packed today and you cross the island from west to north at the foot of the Tramuntana Mountains with its grey limestone. You reach the artist village Alaro and continue cycling to Campanet in the tributary valley of the Tramuntana Mountains; the finca “Monnaber Nou” from the twelfth century is located there. You will stay here for four days.
On this day you cycle again to the sea on the north coast of Majorca. Awaiting you is Pollença, a very typical Majorcan town with its Clavary hill (365-step stairway) and the Roman bridge. In Alcúdia, discover the Roman excavation site and end the tour in the biggest nature reserve, S’Albufera, before returning to the finca.
Today, you travel by bus to the city of pearls – Manacor. The return journey is lined with windmills. The tour takes you to the geographic centre of the island in Sineu, with its market which has existed since the Middle Ages, and through Llubi, where the capers of Majorca are grown.
The last day can be used for relaxing or a final, small bike tour; the path takes you through the famous leather town of Inca with its wine cellars back to campanet.
