Mountains

The principle range in Mallorca is the Serra de Tramuntana in the north of the island. The climbs hereare mostly gentle gradients, with only a few sections in excess of 8%. The exception to the is Sobremunt - the most difficult climb on the island for several reasons.


Sa Calobra

Sa Calobra is one of Mallorca's toughest climbs.






Scenery

The scenery is spectacular throughout much of the Tramuntana mountains. These are not really long climbs, nor do they reach great altitude, but they offer fantastic views of both coastal and mountain scenery.

In our articles about The Best Cycling Routes in Mallorca you can find details of the rides that we believe are the most scenic on the island!



Roads

The road surfaces are of a consistently excellent quality throughout Mallorca and are a pleasure to ride on a road bike. Most of the climbs carry little traffic.



Getting There

Mallorca is best reached by flying into Palma airport. From there it is easy enough to get around the island by car, bike, taxi or even public transport.



Weather

Mallorca's climate is fine for cycling throughout the year. If you come in July and August it is worth making an early start to avoid the increased traffic on the roads.

Check out our article about When to Visit Mallorca for more detailed information about what to expect at different times of the year.


Coll de Soller

Coll de Soller and all of Mallorca's climbs are rideable throughout the year.







Cycling Holidays

Our Mallorca Mountains & Coast cycling holiday gives you the opportunity to tackle the best climbs on the island. It is a multi-centered tour which crosses the entire length of the Tramuntana mountains.

We also run a more leisurely tour on the island which rides around the villages of Mallorca. This has more of a focus on the history and culture, but there is also the opportunity to ride some of the climbs.
