Hiking and cycling in Mallorca
Diverse landscapes, beautiful towns and great weather: Mallorca is truly a paradise for hikers and cyclists. And thereâ€™s no better time of year to enjoy an active holiday on this stunning island than autumn. Keep on reading to discover our favourite routes and tips for your Mallorca adventure.
The best hiking routes on the island
Of course, every Mallorca activity guide has to begin in the Tramuntana mountains. This UNESCO World Heritage site provides a huge selection of spectacular trails and roads.
One of the best hiking routes to add to your list is the GR 221, which runs from PollenĂ§a all the way to Andratx. This challenging trail will take you through romantic towns and lush forests, taking in coastal and inland views. If youâ€™re looking for a truly dramatic hike, try the famous gorge walk of Torrent de Pareis, which leads you to one of Europeâ€™s most famous beaches, Sa Calobra.
Those looking for a more relaxed day on the trail should consider a visit to the Cala MondragĂł Natural Park on the southeast coast. Many of the trails here lead to secluded beaches, so be sure to pack a towel so you can enjoy the gentle lapping of the waves.

When it comes to two-wheel adventures, thereâ€™s no place in Europe like Mallorca. Thereâ€™s a reason this island has cemented its status as a cyclistâ€™s paradise. Think high quality tarmac, challenging routes, beautiful views and a cycling infrastructure that is unrivalled.
During the spring and autumn months, the Tramuntana mountains in particular are buzzing with riders from all around the world. Thatâ€™s because youâ€™ll find some of the most spectacular routes here, including the climbs up to the Coll de Femenia and Sa Batalla, as well as the multitude of switchbacks that make up the picture-perfect Sa Calobra ascent. If youâ€™re in the mood for a more relaxed outing, try the central plains and vineyards, as well as the coastal flats.
Then thereâ€™s the cycling-friendly infrastructure, which includes well-maintained roads, cycling highways and tons of bike rental stores and cycling cafĂ©s. Towns like AlcĂşdia and PollenĂ§a are especially popular for cyclists to visit.
