Trip Itinerary

DAY #1 - Pollensa, Spain Son Brull or Formentor
Your guides will meet you at one of our recommended pre-night hotels, and we’re off to the town of Alaró. From here we’ll ride out through Mallorca’s wine region, passing local vineyards and quaint towns. We’ll stop for a tasty lunch in the main square of Pollença, catching the end of the open-air market. Continue spinning to our magnificent hotel for the next two nights, and perhaps enjoy a poolside glass of chilled wine before dinner. Tonight, we’re served a sumptuous selection of local ingredients from the island and its pristine coastal waters. Accomplished: 24 miles / 39 km, elevation gain: 1,286 feet / 392 meters
DAY #2 - Alcudia, Spain Son Brull or Formentor
Today we will challenge ourselves on the epic Cap de Formentor lighthouse ride—one of Mallorca’s legendary roads. Our main climb of the day will take us from Port de Pollença to the Colomer Mirador where we can admire the magnificent views of craggy rocks and the shimmering blue sea. Arrive at the lighthouse, enjoy a refreshing drink, and take a moment to snap some photos from the lighthouse terrace. Afterward, ride all the way back to Port de Pollença, or transfer and arrive in time for lunch at Tolo’s, a favorite hangout for amateur and professional cyclists like Sir Bradley Wiggins. Following lunch, return to the hotel by van or via the coastal road to Alcudia. Tonight, our great friend and local personality, Luis, will welcome us into his home for an exclusive homemade meal paired with a selection of his favorite wines.

Accomplished: 32 miles / 51 km, elevation gain: 3,392 feet / 1,034 meters

Longer Option: 42 miles / 68 km, elevation gain: 3,870 feet / 1,180 meters
DAY #3 - Sóller, Spain La Residencia, A Belmond Hotel, Mallorca
Today we will ascend into the dramatic Tramuntana Mountains, where the terrain is captivatingly diverse. From rocky lunar landscapes to magnificent coastal cliffs that plunge into the azure sea, our ride reveals hand-hewn tunnels, mountain lakes, shady forests, and quaint sandstone villages. Climb the Col de Puig Major, the highest point of the week where we’ll pause to absorb the views of the valley below before an exhilarating 14-kilometer descent into Sóller. After lunch, hop in the van or ride to Deià and our home for the next two nights, the relaxing-yet-luxurious Hotel La Residencia. Tonight we’ll enjoy an exquisite dinner at the hotel’s acclaimed El Olivo restaurant.

DAY #4 - Puerto De Sóller, Spain La Residencia, A Belmond Hotel, Mallorca
Today we dial down the intensity—we’ll need our energy for tomorrow’s spectacular finish. Ride out from the hotel on a coastal road, then descend right into Sóller. From here, choose an easier loop through the small village of Fornalutx past citrus and olive orchards, or tackle the challenging switchbacks of the Col de Sóller, adding a 6% grade over five kilometers. We’ll regroup in the charming seaside village of Port de Sóller for a delicious lunch overlooking the marina before zipping along the coast towards Deià cove, close to our hotel. This evening, your guides can recommend their favorite nearby restaurants for dinner on your own.

Stop for coffee and wander the streets of this pretty town beloved by its illustrious residents both past and present—including composer Frédéric Chopin, writer Georges Sand, and actor Michael Douglas. During this stunning ride, we’ll cruise between the mountains and the coast on one of the island’s most revered cycling routes, the Tramuntana Classic. A celebratory lunch is served in the chic marina town of Port Andratx.
