Majestic Mallorca Cycling Tour, through the Sierra Tramuntana Mountain Range
Journey to the Mediterranean island of Mallorca to experience island life with a Spanish twist. Remarkable beauty is just the beginning on our Mallorca Bike Tour in Spain. Cycle on roads with dramatic cliffs which drop off from both sides and offer sweeping views of the sea.
Climb high into the mountain range: The Sierra de Tramuntana forms the northern backbone of Majorca and has been awarded World Heritage Status by UNESCO. Summiting Puig de Massanella, the mountain’s second highest peak, is a popular excursion – are you up for the challenge of climbing 4,475 feet? Visit the historic monastery and wander the steep, narrow streets of Valdemossa. Bask in the sunshine along the sparkling coast. You’ll be delighted by the quiet, traffic-free country roads.
This loop route takes you through majestic mountains, wonderful vineyards, farmlands and pastures, with its exceptional and characteristic interior -rural- Majorcan houses.
