Coll de la Creueta

Close to the Pollença area, Coll de la Creuta is a warm-up route for many cyclists!

This 3km climb starts at the end of Port de Pollença and ends with breathtaking views up on Mirador de la Creuta, also known as Es Colomer.

S’Albufereta Nature Reserve

Cycle around the S’Alfubereta Reserve, a nature retreat where you can spot rare bird species, like the purple gallinule or the stilt sandpiper.

You can start this route along Sa Marina beach, go by the Pont des Grau to snap a picture with the Tramuntana mountains and have fun discovering the wonders of this wetland.

Puig Major

Puig Major is the one of the highest mountains of the island!

To reach the 854m height peak you can start in Soller and follow the road to the Monnaber tunnel.

With permission you can go all the way to the top, otherwise you can just stay around the tunnel area and admire the view.

Stretching along 14km, this is the longest climb in Mallorca and takes around one hour to complete, depending on your endurance.

If you want you can also stop by the village of Fornalutx, a few kilometres off the main road, to stock up on water bottles!

Punta de N’Amer

Go for a quiet ride along the island’s East coast at Punta de N’Amer!

To get here you can either head south from Calla Millor or North from Sa Coma. Either way you will reach the top and see the Castell de n’Amer, a 17th-century building where you have a panoramic view of the island.

Llevant Peninsula Nature Reserve

Riders that are looking for a bit of a challenge can try this route to the Llevant National Park!

Before venturing out, make sure to grab a map of the area at the visitor’s centre in Artà, this is where you will be starting the route.

From here on there are several designated trails for both cyclists and hikers, leading to secluded beaches like the Sa Font Celada!

La Reserva Puig de Galatzó

It’s hard to miss this mountain’s distinctive peak when you’re in Mallorca!

The best way to reach the Puig de Galatzó is from the Andratx-Estellencs Road C-710 close to Mirador des Grau.

This is not an easy track for beginners and it’s better to go with a group to avoid getting lost!

All the effort you put into this ride will be worth it in the end, with the scenic views and ethnological discovers that will come along on your way to the top.
