Highlights

    • Savor delicious Mediterranean cuisine, including paella, all flavored with unique Majorcan touches and accompanied with delicious local wines.
    • Complement your cycling days with stays in luxurious boutique hotels, each a unique property with its own character and history that embody the region.
    • Ride in a cyclist’s paradise of diverse landscapes: turquoise Mediterranean waters, dramatic Tramuntana mountains, coastal wetlands, emerald farmland and vineyards, rice fields, and more.
    • Stroll small coastal villages with deep farming traditions, each graced with beautiful honey-stoned buildings and a breathtaking setting of mountains and valleys.
    • Meet the owner of one of Mallorca’s oldest fincas and learn how his family has been producing olive oil for 17 generations using the only traditional press on the island.

What's this trip about?

    Think Mallorca is only for professional cyclists? Think again. With our deep Spanish roots, we found the hidden relaxed cycling routes other bike tour companies miss. Of course, the big climbs are there too—for anyone who wants them! As you cycle through lush subtropical forests and mountain valleys, our leaders will introduce you to sunny citrus groves and ancient stone villages bathed in the golden light of Mallorca’s vibrant sunsets. After spinning along the turquoise coast, you’ll savor Mallorca’s rich culinary traditions—including a deep dive into Spanish cuisine with a renowned paella chef, lunch at the island’s oldest olive oil mill, and a visit to the unique salt flats at Ses Salines. With a wealth of fresh seafood, locally produced Malvasia wines, and top-quality olive oil, it’s easy to see why Mallorca is truly a destination for foodies!

With VBT, you won’t just visit a place—you’ll immerse yourself in it.
