From rocky lunar landscapes to magnificent coastal cliffs that plunge into the azure sea, our ride reveals hand-hewn tunnels, mountain lakes, shady forests, and quaint sandstone villages. Climb the Col de Puig Major, the highest point of the week where we’ll pause to absorb the views of the valley below before an exhilarating 14-kilometer descent into Sóller.

    Spinning to the Sea

From here, choose an easier loop through the small village of Fornalutx past citrus and olive orchards, or tackle the challenging switchbacks of the Col de Sóller, adding a 6% grade over five kilometers. We’ll regroup in the charming seaside village of Port de Sóller for a delicious lunch overlooking the marina before zipping along the coast towards Deià cove, close to our hotel. This evening, your guides can recommend their favorite nearby restaurants for dinner on your own.
