 Itinerary (as provided by Mills and Honey)

DAY 1 – ARRIVAL AND PALMA DE MALLORCA. Today is an open day where you can all get to your hotel in Palma and have a quiet afternoon enjoying town.

DAY 2 – GALILEA LOOP. We will bring the bikes today so we have a quick bike fit session at the hotel and you can go for a hilly yet great loop to Galilea and Puigpunyent. Around 55 Km with 1100m climbing.

Dinner will be included tonight at our friend’s place La Rosa.

DAY 3 – SINEU TO ARTÁ. We will come meet you at hotel Saratoga in Palma and drive you to Sineu from where you can start riding towards the North East corner of the island. The ride starts with an easy few rolling Km towards Sant Joan and Petra, from where you jump on a super fun and remote road, constantly up and down which basically takes you straight to your destination, Artá. There’s also the option of taking the shuttle straight to the hotel for those who have not recovered from jet lag.  60 km with 600 metres climbing.

Dinner tonight will be included at FORN NOU near your Hotel.

DAY 4 – BETLEM HERMITAGE. A great little hidden gem of a ride which takes you up to Betlem Hermitage in one of Mallorca’s most beautiful little roads and with amazing views of the Bay of Alcudia. From there you ride back to Artá and you can head to Cala Mesquida for a quick snack by the gorgeous beach.   45 Km with 650m climbing.

DAY 5 - TO PORT POLLENSA VIA PETRA. Today you’re moving hotels and heading West towards the popular cycling hub of Port Pollensa. The ride takes you back on the fun road from day 1 in the opposite direction, back to Petra and Sineu. From there you turn North towards the foot of the Tramuntana and the coastal town of Port Pollensa, your home for the next 3 nights.   65-85 Km with 900 m climbing.

DINNER will be included at La Llonja tonight.

DAY 6 – CAP FORMENTOR LIGHTHOUSE. One of Mallorca's iconic cycling routes and in the bucket list of many cyclists around the world. With amazing views of the Mediterranean Sea, it's a constant up and down, twists and turns which take you to the most Northerly point in Mallorca. An early start is recommended to avoid most of the traffic. After coming back from the Lighthouse, we suggest you visit the charming old town of Pollença and have lunch there or in the cove Cala Sant Vicenç by the beach.  40 - 65 Km with +1000m of climbing.

DAY 7 – LLUC MONASTERY LOOP OR CALA BOQUER HIKE. Today you have a couple of options for those wanting a day off the saddle who can take an easy and beautiful hike from Port de Soller towards Cala Boquer beach where they can go in for a swim, about 10 Km out and back. For those keen on the cycle  there’s a great loop up Coll de Sa Bataia from Caimari to Lluc Monastery, and the great descent from Coll de Feminia to Pollensa for a coffee by the square.   10 Km hike or 65 km ride with 800m climbing.

DAY 8 – SA CALOBRA. it's epic ride along the Tramuntana including a detour to the world famous Sa Calobra a must-do for any cyclists coming to Mallorca and the main reason why Mallorca is so famous in the cycling world but that's after the beautiful climb from Caimari to Coll de Sa Bataia and before the great 14 Km descent from the Monnaber Tunnel to Port de Soller. 85 Km with almost 2000m climbing so we have shuttle options or you could even jump in the ferry in Sa Calobra that takes you to very near your hotel.  85 Km with +1000m of climbing

PICNIC LUNCH Will be included along the ride and also DINNER at Agapanto in Port de Soller.

DAY 9 – COLL DE SOLLER AND RIBAS WINERY. You can do many rides from Port de Soller, but being tucked in right by the sea and the mountains, all riding involves a lot of climbing. From here I’d recommend you can ride Coll de Soller down to Bunyola from where you can take the easy way to Alaro, our hometown, or via the great climb to Orient. From Alaro, you have an easy 8 Km ride into BODEGA RIBAS, the oldest winery in Mallorca, where a quick visit followed by picnic styled lunch with wine tasting will be waiting for you (INCLUDED).  45 Km with 700m climbing.

DAY 10 – A DAY IN PORT DE SOLLER. Would be the perfect day to have the Day Off the saddle around port de Soller, maybe take the tram over to Soller villa, or if you’re feeling a little active take a quick walk to the Lighthouse on the South of the harbour, or why not, just relax by the pool or by the beach. Also a great plan would be to have a hike towards Cala Deia where you can have a seafood lunch by the sea at Cas Patro March.   12 Km Hike with 450m climbing.

DAY 11 - SW COAST. We leave the best for last, the stunning rollercoaster of a road from Port de Sollwe through Deia, Valldemossa to Andratx and Sant Elm. It’s 44 miles of constant up and down along one of the most stunning roads on the island and for sure in Europe and worldwide, our favourite ride on the island and for good reason. The ride finishes in the tranquil beach town of Sant Elm where you can have a great lunch at Es Moli and where we would pick you up to transfer to Palma de Mallorca for your last evening in Mallorca. 70 Km with 1000m climbing

LUNCH at ES MOLI will be included.

DAY 12 - DEPARTURE. We will arrange transfers from the hotel to the airport (15 minutes drive) for your return flights.
