Serra Tramuntana bike trip
Journey to the Mediterranean island of Mallorca to experience island life with a Spanish twist. Remarkable beauty is just the beginning on the Mallorca Bike Tour in Spain. Cycle on roads where dramatic cliffs drop off from both sides and offer sweeping views of the sea.
Climb high into the mountain range: The Serra de Tramuntana forms the northern backbone of the Majorca. This mountain range was 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.
It is a circular route that takes you through mountains, wonderful vineyards, cultivations and pastures, with its exceptional and characteristic interior – rural – Majorcan houses. The circuit is divided into 5 stages of an average of 60-80 km through secondary paths and roads. Each stage ends in a small town or village with luxury accommodation.
