SunBike Tour: Vuelta de Mallorca - bike tour

Bike trip in a paradise for natur lovers

Here nature has created everything poets and painters ever dreamed of. Majorca is a paradise for all sport and nature fans. The smell of almond blossoms in spring accompanies you on this bike tour. The island tour Majorca is an experience of culture and history out of the way of mass tourism. In a special way you can experience here the different riches and the finenesses of this island, the many culinary delights, the blazing colours of art and tradition (of poets and painters, of pottery), spice markets, historic architecture, picturesque sand beaches with bizarre rock formations and sunsets.

TOUR PROFILE
The stages are average, a mix between short ascents and  wonderful  descents; really difficult bits will be bridged by bus (also on single tours!). You can cycle on side roads, field paths and some hiking paths, always with as little traffic as possible. We reserve the right to changes in the tour programme!
