Cycling Mallorca is ‘Heaven on Earth’ for cyclists,
over 100,000 cyclists every year, come to experience the
beautiful landscape. Variety they say is the spice of life,
and the island offers it all, from flat meadow land, through
rolling hills, to long scenic mountain climbs. We can guide
you onto peaceful roads with little traffic.
The Pro Cycle bike group leaves from Tolo’s restaurant on
the seafront in Puerto Pollensa, every morning of the week.
Anyone can join the ride and it is free of charge and is an
excellent way to meet other cyclists and to get a flavour of
the area and roads.
Majorca hiking adventures and bird watching
Pollensa and the surrounding areas offer some of the best
walks on the whole of Mallorca. For
those interested in Bird watching the Boquer valley, which
is a 15 minute walk from the sea front of Puerto Pollensa,
is a wonderful area for seeing many species of birds. It is
a favourite place for migratory birds in the spring and
autumn - Warblers, Flycatchers, Woodchat Shrikes,
Bee-eaters, Hoopoes, Crag Martins, Booted Eagles, Ospreys
and Falcons can often be seen.
In addition, Mallorca is home
to birds such as Black Vulture, Eleonora's Falcon, Audouin's
Gull, Moustached Warbler and Marmora's Warbler which are all
very rare or difficult to see in the rest of Europe. Many of
our walks are great for Bird watching, Painting and
Photography. Mallorca has the fabulous marsh of Albufera,
probably the best wetland site on any Mediterranean island.
