Activities

  • Caving
  • Food

    • All breakfasts are included. Meals in Mallorca are usually based around fish, vegetables and pork with plenty of garlic and olive oil. Restaurant evening menus will normally feature a fish of the day and Paella as well as local specialities like Frit Mallorqui and Arros Brut. Pizzerias are also very common on the island so you will never be too far from a very nice stone baked pizza! Lunch is usually a large meal in Spain and lunch stops can be quite long. You have the option to stop at local restaurants or pick up picnic lunches from supermarkets on the days when lunch is at a monastery as restaurant options are limited. For breakfast you can expect a continental buffet with eggs, cold meats, cheeses as well as cereal and pastry options. Mallorca is well known for its sweet treats so when on the island make sure you try the famous Ensaimada (a delicious pastry covered in icing sugar) and the Rubiols pastries which are filled with jam, chocolate and sweet pumpkin.

    Cycle to the monastery of San Salvador for spectacular views of the Tremuntana Mountains and the coast.

    After breakfast we get on the bikes and head back towards Porreres and then on to the town of Felanitx which is situated in Mallorca’s second largest wine producing area, Pla i Llevant. From here we can see the day’s half way point, the sanctuary of Saint Salvador which is situated on top of a hill overlooking the town. The climb up to the sanctuary is about 5km long and at a steady gradient of 6%, it is a challenge but the views on the climb and from the top make the effort well worth it! We will spend some time at the top where we can look around the sanctuary and walk to the various viewpoints which allow you to see all the way to the coast in the south and to the mountains in the north. After the spectacular decent from the sanctuary we make our way again to Porreres where we stop for lunch before cycling back to Algaida via a different route.
