Overview

When we hear the name ‘Mallorca’, the first thing that comes to mind is the wild and rambunctious nightlife for which it’s so well known. It would be a shame, however, to write off this truly giving island – known to the Spaniards as ‘’La Luminosa – The Enlightened One’’ – without looking a little deeper into what it has to offer.

When we hear the name ‘Mallorca’, the first thing that comes to mind is the wild and rambunctious nightlife for which it’s so well known. It would be a shame, however, to write off this truly giving island – known to the Spaniards as ‘’La Luminosa – The Enlightened One’’ – without looking a little deeper into what it has to offer.

With the roots of the islands history dating back as far as the Neolithic era, this cycle tour is filled with a richness and culture unlike any other. From the pre-historic burial chambers and Bronze Age talaiots that cover the islands surface, to the awe-inspiring natural architecture of the Dragon Caves at Porto Cristo, every twist and turn brings with it something sure to stop you in your tracks.

Cycling up to the top of cliffs and peering down over peaceful bays; the true charm of Mallorca is well away from its thriving strips and nightclubs. As you make your way through the hills of the interior, you’re sure to be struck by the relative whispers of the turning mill wheels and chirping cicadas. With ample opportunity for swimming and sunbathing without the crowds you may have envisaged, this island is far more than just a party island in the sun.
