In this article, we will explore some lesser-known but equally exciting routes that Mallorca has to offer.

1. The Coll de Sòller Route: A Circular Cycle Tour From Verge de Lluc

This route starts in the picturesque village of Verge de Lluc and offers a challenging circular route. The highlight of this ride is the breathtaking sea views as you cycle along the steep cliffs. Although mostly a paved route, good fitness is required due to the elevation and challenges along the way. However, the reward of the panoramic views makes every effort worthwhile.

2. Cap de Formentor from Port de Pollença: Adventure in the Tramuntana Mountains

This spectacular route departs from Port de Pollença and enters the breathtaking Serra de Tramuntana. Cycling through rugged terrain, cyclists can enjoy the authenticity of the coastal landscape.

Crossing some of Mallorca's best beaches, the route offers the opportunity to immerse yourself in the island's unspoilt nature, although sparse in trees, but rich in low vegetation.

4. Cap Salinas Route: Discovering the Unknown

One of Mallorca's lesser-known gems, this Cap Salinas route is ideal for those seeking the thrill of technical areas.
