Bike Tour: Mallorca cycling - 8 days

Here's your chance to marvel at the Mediterranean and do it by bike! Brimming with contrasts, Mallorca truly runs the gamut. Gentle hills roll toward seaside cliffs, Mediterranean forests give way to pristine coves and a massive limestone range looms to the west. Embrace this inspiring scenery on easy country routes and more challenging climbs and revel in the island’s heritage, hospitality and cuisine.

Day 8: End of arrangement

Day 1:    Arrival in Ruberts (Sencelles)

Arrive at your rural accommodation in Ruberts-Sencelles, where you will stay for four nights. Settle in, meld with your surroundings and breathe into a week of delight, Mallorcan style!  

Day 2:    Circular ride from Ruberts via Sineu and Petra
41 km

Set off among olive orchards and vineyards, cycling to historic Sineu, with its Gothic church, narrow lanes and lively terraces. Pedal onward to Petra, birthplace of the European ‘founder’ of California, and pause to visit the monastery and museum. The hilltop sanctuary of Bonany makes a prime spot for lunch, followed by a final section on quiet country lanes and dirt tracks back to your hotel.

Challenge: 41-48 km, 235/420 m ascent/descent. 

Day 3:    Circular ride from Ruberts via Alaró and Santa María
26 km

Cross the Palma-Inca highway and roll into almond and olive orchards on the slopes of the Tramuntana as you ride toward the castle at Alaró. To avoid three kilometres on a busy road, take the ancient route from Binissalem, with one short non-cyclable section. Next, glide down inland roads then wind back through authentic rural scenery, passing elegant estates and age-old villages.

Challenge: 26-51 km, 75/250 m ascent/descent.

Day 4:    Circular ride from Ruberts vis Llucmajor and Montuiri
45 km

Snap photos of Mallorca’s classic windmills as your route turns south today. Opt for the climb up Puig de Randa (an extra 450m in ascent), stopping off at three shrines. Or cycle directly to Llucmajor then skirt the Puig, enjoying equally beautiful scenery. Later, you follow a dirt road to Montuiri and continue back to the hotel.

Challenge: 45-56 km, 325/570 m ascent/descent.

Day 5:    Cycle from Ruberts to Pollença
45 km

Bid your kind hosts farewell then ride north toward Costitx and Llubí on a fairly relaxed tour. From Campanet you pedal into a serene valley, passing carob and almonds orchards on the route to Pollença. Enduring a quick two kilometres in traffic is a small price to pay for today’s reward: the charm and comfort of your next hotel.

Challenge: 45 km, 235/335 m ascent/descent.

Day 6:    Circular ride from Pollença via S´Albufera
42 km

Press onward to the tourist mecca of Sa Pobla, with an optional detour via Muro and Santa Margalida. Traversing typical Mallorcan scenery among windmills and fields of artichokes, you come upon a tiny but exquisite corner of the world, the marshlands at S’Albufera, a peaceful nature reserve with a stunning variety of waterbirds.

Challenge: 42-68 km, 175/275 m ascent/descent.  

Day 7:    Circular ride from Pollença via Alcudia or Lluc
16 km

Choose between an easy route exploring north coast beaches or a demanding ascent to Lluc Monastery, especially tough on hot days or in weekend traffic. At the end of your route, reflect on the week’s adventures, relax and raise a glass to the island of Mallorca!

Challenge: 16-46 km, 50/325 m ascent/descent. 

Day 8:    End of arrangement

Your cycling journey comes to an end today after breakfast. Travel home or, if you have booked extra nights, extend your stay and visit Palma de Mallorca.

ARRIVAL & DEPARTURE

A supplement of 45€ will apply for solo travellers renting a bike through Spanish Bike Tours. Please, bear in mind that this amount does not appear in the web calculation!

The nearest airport is Palma de Mallorca airport (PMI)

* Transfer by taxi from Palma de Mallorca airport to the first accommodation is included in the package.

Arrival in Sencelles

From Palma airport (PMI) to Ruberts-Sencelles; Taxi transfer from Palma airport to your first accommodation in Ruberts is included in your arrangement.

If you travel with your own bike:

  • You can cycle directly from the airport to your first accommodation using maps provided.
  • Or travel by train with your bike to Plaça Espanya in Palma de Mallorca. Be sure to check timetables for trains that allow to bicycle transport (extra costs may apply).

From Palma de Mallorca ferry terminal: If your flight arrives at Barcelona airport (BCN) and you take a ferry to Palma de Mallorca, you can get a taxi from the ferry terminal to your first accommodation (approx 40 €). 

Departure from Pollença

There are several bus services a day from Pollença to Palma de Mallorca (duration 1,5hrs). The bus leaves you at Plaça de Espanya in Palma. From there you can get the shuttle to Palma airport (Line 1). It runs every 20 minutes. 

Optional taxi transfers can be booked from your last accommodation to the airport in Palma de Mallorca. Prices are available on request.

If you are travelling to / from Barcelona by car and taking the ferry to Mallorca, it is best to leave your car in Barcelona. Taking your car over to the island is not at all convenient as the fee is quite high. Also, at the end of your trip it will be easier to get back to the ferry terminal in Mallorca by public transport or taxi.

If you hire a car in Palma de Mallorca and drive to the first accommodation, you will be given a place to park at the finca.
