See the many different faces of Majorca on this cycling holiday around the island. Explore the secluded coves of the east coast before following quiet country lanes north to the beautiful beaches of Can Picafort and Alcudia. A transfer high into the mountains of the west coast is followed by a scenic descent to charming Fornalutz and stunning Port Soller.
Each night you will stay in a bustling resort town on the coast and your comfortable hotel will never be far from a fantastic beach for a refreshing post-ride swim. During the day the rides lead you inland along a network of quiet country lanes, lined with dry stone walls and rustic windmills to charming, peaceful villages. On the more remote sections cicadas provide a backing track to your ride and colourful butterflies dance in the sunlight.
