Majorca Cycling Tour

This is a cycling holiday in Majorca, Spain. Standing on steep cliffs, overlooking quiet bays, you will feel the charm of Majorca far away from its rich night life. In the hills in the interior of the island, the wheels of the mills are turning gently and you can hear the cicadas chirping in the grass. 

On this tour you will cycle uphill and downhill, some nice climbs and descents are awaiting you. Perhaps those ups and downs are symbolic of the turbulent, 2,000-year history of the largest Balearic Island. Both, the coast as well as the inland, have their own charms and you will get to know each of them. In the Dragon Caves of Porto Cristo you will experience how creative and sometimes bizarre the architecture of nature can be. The picturesque fishing villages and shimmering salt lakes will revive your sense of romance.
