Majorca: radial tour with charme
1 island, 2 fincas, 1000 dreams.
Discover the beauties of Mallorca, very comfortably. We have selected two stylish, beautiful fincas for you, from which you can start your daily bike excursions. You will spend the first 3 nights in the 4-star superior Hotel Rural Monnaber Nou. Only 2 km away from Campanet, the historic walls are idyllically and quietly at the foot of the Tramuntana Mountains. From here you cycle to the sandy beach of Playa del Muro, through the S’Albufera nature reserve with its numerous species of birds and through vast olive groves and orange plantations. Discover the stalactite cave of Campanet, the small wine-growing town of Binissalem, where the most famous Mallorcan wines are made and enjoy the many typical stone walls and small villages. On the 4th day you cycle over gentle hills, overgrown with olives and almond trees, from Campanet to Porreres to the 4-star Finca son Roig. On your bike excursions from there you will discover Manacor, where the famous Majoricas artificial pearls are made, the famous dragon cave of Porto Cristo, particularly beautiful windmills and the white sandy beach of Es Trenc. Back in your finca, you can end the day relaxing by the luxurious pool in the shade of the lemon trees.
Your hotel in Campanet: Hotel Rural Monnaber Nou 4****S
The building, located about 2km from Campanet, was built in the 13th Century when the Moors ruled Majorca. Since the 16th Century, this estate was used as a mansion and has therefore been kept in outstanding condition over the years and has preserved the old stone walls. On this wonderful premises you will find an old olive press and a windmill from the year 1680. Along with the comfortable rooms, there is an outdoor pool, an indoor pool and the spa and wellness centre with whirlpool, sauna and steam room for sheer relaxation. Enjoy the excellent gastronomy and a wide range of wines in the Mirador Monnaber Nou restaurant.
Your hotel in Porreres: Finca son Roig 4****
This historical country house, which is located about 5km outside of Porreres, was first restored scrupulously and properly several years ago. A haven of peace and relaxation was created with an astonishing attention to detail. The excellent restaurant was housed in the former wine cellar and it is here that the Majorcan cuisine is being newly interpreted. The rooms provide a pleasant stay and are decorated in a classic style. After each day on the bike, you can spend time by the luxurious pool in the shade of the lemon trees.
1. day Campanet Arrival
Look forward to Campanet and your first hotel on this special star bike tour. During a walk through the village, let yourself be impressed by the stately but at the same time traditional architecture. Marvel at the Massana houses on Plaça Major, 7 with its two Renaissance windows and the Biniatró estate on Calle Sant Miquel, 27. Or enjoy the beautifully landscaped pool and the wide view from the terrace of your hotel. In the evening, your supervisor welcomes you and gives you the rental bikes.
2. day Trip to Playa del Muro/ Albufera 55 km
Pack your bathing suit quickly, because the first bike tour takes you to the beautiful sandy beach of Playa del Muro. After a worthwhile break, you cycle through the vast S'Albufera nature reserve. This is where it gets really interesting. Nature lovers can observe numerous species of birds. You cycle on beautiful paths along the Tramuntana mountains, which are considered a World Heritage Site. The impressive mountains form the picturesque background of the valley lined with olive trees. Look forward to a visit to the Campanet stalactite caves (included), which are certainly a highlight of the day.
3. day Trip around the Puig de Inca 55 km
Look forward to today's round tour around the approx. 300 m high Puig de Inca. You cycle through orange plantations and olive groves to numerous Mallorcan towns that invite you to linger with their typical stone walls and village squares. Make sure you take a break in the famous wine-growing town of Binissalem, because Mallorca's most famous wines are made here. Visit one of the beautiful bodegas and see the quality of the wines for yourself. But you should also visit the worth seeing church Nostra Senyora de Robines, which impressively dominates the church square and town and whose bell tower is considered a landmark of Binissalem.
4. day Campanet – Porreres 45 km
You cycle over gentle hills covered with olive and almond trees. Marvel at the attractive island villages of Buger, Muro and Montuiri. Look forward to Sineu, because the small town is known for the only real farmer's market in Mallorca (only on Wednesdays). Almost everything can be bought here, from local products to clothing. The cattle market is still one of the biggest attractions of the market today. With lots of impressions, you will then cycle along beautiful paths to Porreres to the Finca Son Roig, your second accomodation.
5. day Trip to Campos and its wind turbines 40 - 50 km
Today you will pass a large number of particularly beautiful windmills. Nowhere else in the world are there as many windmills in a small area as on Mallorca. In the past they were an important part of agriculture. They were used either to grind grain or to pump water into the fields. If you want to enjoy the last day of cycling to the full, you can make a worthwhile detour by bike to the famous sandy beach of "Es Trenc" (+ 10 km). The natural beach is one of the highlights of Mallorca. Look forward to a 3500 m long white dream beach. The sand is fine and the water, especially when the sea is calm, clear and blue like a piece of the Caribbean.
6. day Trip to Porto Cristo 40 km + transfer
You cycle leisurely on lonely paths across meadows and fields to Manacor, where the famous Majoricas artificial pearls are produced in factories. Numerous shops sell souvenirs and everyday objects made from handmade ceramics. After a short visit, you will continue cycling in the direction of the sea. Look forward to the Bay of Porto Cristo, where you can take a wonderful swim or visit the famous Drach Caves. They are one of the main tourist attractions and without a doubt the most remarkable caves on the island. Discover an infinite number of stalagnites and stalactites over a length of almost 1,200 meters and at a maximum depth of 25 meters as well as the lake, Lago Martel, which is considered one of the largest underground lakes in the world. In the late afternoon transfer back to Porreres.

In the north of Mallorca lies the ancient town of Alcudia. This medieval town is not to be confused with the beach resort of Alcudia, or the port, Puerto Alcudia! Many of Majorca's towns were built several miles inland to provide protection against marauding pirates, and the port & coastal areas were only developed in more recent times as tourism became a major source of income for the island. Alcudia is a perfectly restored walled city on the site of a Roman settlement, with remains of Roman houses and an amphitheatre. This is a gem of a place, a maze of narrow streets enclosed by medieval ramparts that have been carefully restored as part of Mallorca's new tourist image. A couple of new boutique hotels have sprung up, and modern gastronomic restaurants provide a more interesting dining experience than you may experience in the Port.
S'Albufera Natural Park
Just off the coast road 5km south of Port d'Alcudia in the north west of Mallorca, the S'Albufera wetlands make a welcome relief from long stretches of crowded beach. Birdwatchers come to Mallorca from all over Europe to see rare migrants here like Montagu's harriers and Eleanora's falcons; species breeding here include stonechats, moustached warblers and the long-eared owl. Ospreys leave their breeding sites on the cliffs to come here to fish; peregrines and hoopoes live here all year round.
Binissalem is a small village, semi-industrialised on the outskirts due to it's prime role in the wine industry. If you order Mallorcan wine in a restaurant, it will probably come from Binissalem. Binissalem lies where the Mallorcan plain meets the Tramuntana mountains, so you get the best of both worlds here. Another big bonus about staying around Binissalem is the excellent travel links - it is just off the main motorway from Palma to Alcudia, and the train also stops here on its way north. The very beautiful countryside is filled with vineyards, orange trees and almond trees.
This was one of the main resorts on the east coast until Cala Millor came along. With bigger and better beaches elsewhere, Porto Cristo has carved out a role as a friendly, family resort, taking advantage of a superb position at the end of a long, sheltered inlet. It's a sweet little place, with a nice beach and a lovely blue-green sea. Porto Cristo, also written Portocristo, was a small fishing town which was given it’s name “Port of Christ” as a boat with a crucifix was washed up on the beach at the time of the Christian invasion. Once the port for Manacor, Porto Cristo was the only place in Mallorca to be caught up in the Spanish Civil War, when it was briefly captured by Republican forces in 1936.
Cuevas del Drach
Dark and cool, these limestone caves on the edge of Porto Cristo have become one of Mallorca's top tourist sights. Groups are accompanied along the 1200m of smooth paths by guides who tell you in four languages how to interpret the magnificent stalactite formations within.
Windmills near Campos
The windmills we see as we land at Palma airport, which are most symbolic to Mallorca, are water-extraction mills. There are around two thousand five hundred of these, nearly all of them concentrated around the southern villages of Mallorca, Campos and Ses Salines or towards the middle of the island near Sa Pobla and Muro. They are distinguished by their “arrow” feature and were used to pump water into a “safareig” or water reservoir. The oldest and most common type of water-extraction windmill is the “Ramell”, which had wooden vanes that had to be opened manually, that’s why they had a flat topped tower. These are commonly seen in a poor state of repair, maybe just the tower remaining. The later models are those with metal vanes, designed for easier usage and longer life.
