Spain - Islands

Mallorca offers a natural paradise for walkers far beyond the stereotypical packaged holidays catering for mass tourism. The Sierra Tramuntana is a gemstone of a mountain range almost unrivaled on the Mediterranean, featuring great walks, beautiful vegetation with hundreds of years old olive trees and spectacular views across the nearby sea.

Lanzarote and Fuerteventura are the best of the Canary islands when it comes to gentle cycling. Both islands are rather flat or undulating, feature unique Volcanic and desert like landscapes with plenty of agriculture squeezed into the lava fields. The sites created by Cesar Manrique, the Lanzarote’s most prolific artist, are spectacularly set and all is surrounded by the great and blue Atlantic Ocean and some fine, white beaches.

This trip is packed with highlights from the three finest walking islands of the Canaries. If you ever wanted to get a great overview – here you find walks around the Caldera de Taburiente NP on La Palma, around NP Garajonay with the remaining Canarian cloud forests on La Gomera and last but not least a trip to Teide NP on Tenerife – highest volcano on the islands. We move around by ferries which makes the experience even more authentic.

Mallorca is southern Europe's most popular cycling destination for road bikers in search of good weather in spring and autumn. Our trip focuses on undemanding cycling through back-roads in the northern part of the island, all from our comfortable base in Porto Pollenca. Combine this with great beaches and some stunning scenery of the Sierra Tramuntana as a backdrop.
