Make a bike tour and discover the breathtaking countryside of Mallorca!
Everybody thinks to “know” Mallorca - the famous island. You will be astonished how many secret places remain to be discovered. Off the beaten track, through sun-drenched and unspoiled nature, along steep rocks with a vista to dreamy little bays with clear blue-green water. Submit to the charm of Mallorca in Spain. Listen to the whisper of wind in the grass, to the song of cicadas and the silent turning of the wind wheels. Up and down you cycle through the ever varying landscape. Coast and inner country both offer different attractions and you will see them all. Visit the dragon caves of Porto Cristo, the bizarre and fantastic creations of nature. Romantic evenings in picturesque fisher villages and on shimmering salt lakes. Of course bathing also belongs to Mallorca - without the necessity to hire a spot for hours in advance. “La Luminosa - the Enlightened” Mallorca is called by Spaniards and she waits for you.
