Exploring the natural wonders of the Serra de Tramuntana on two wheels

Visitors to Mallorca’s stand at ITB Berlin this year will discover that the island is an ideal destination for cycling tourism, thanks to the great variety of landscapes and an extensive network of cycling itineraries. The Serra de Tramuntana, a UNESCO World Heritage site, offers a particularly unique perspective.

Mallorca stands out as a destination for cycling tourism, offering visitors the opportunity to enjoy sporting events such as the Mallorca 312 race or the Mallorca Cycling Challenge. In addition, the island has more than 2,000 kilometres of roads and paths specially enabled for cycling. Some of these route options include the climb to Puig Major, a visit to Valldemossa and the challenging path to Sa Calobra, among others.

Climb to the top of Puig Major
Puig Major is the highest point on the island, with an altitude of 1,436 metres, which makes this route one of the most attractive and popular to travel by bicycle.

Cyclists can start in the town of Sóller, where the itinerary runs through its well-known port, until it enters the mountainous landscape. Due to its altitude, it is quite a challenge, but it offers spectacular views throughout the journey.

Visit the picturesque town of Valldemossa
Another of the best-known routes is the one that connects the capital of Palma with the town of Valldemossa, located at the foot of the Serra de Tramuntana. Due to its position, it has a mainly flat terrain.

Test yourself on the ascent to Sa Calobra
This route is one of the most popular worldwide, extending 70 kilometres in length with a positive gradient of 2,000 metres.
