 2 – Puig Major (Sóller)

The longest climb on the island, over 14 kilometers. An essential climb for any cyclist, with a very constant slope, on average 6%. Cycling next to the Gorg Blau and Cúber reservoirs is a unique experience.

Leaving from Pollença, the ascent to Coll de Femenia reflects the beauty of the Serra de Tramuntana like few others. 8 kilometers on an average slope of 6%, with a final smoother section to better savor the victory.

 4 – Sóller (Palma-Sóller)

For decades the only means of connection between the towns of Sóller and Palma. Now a territory conquered by cyclists to freely enjoy the 6 kilometers of ascent with a slope of 5%. Perhaps the most famous horseshoe curves on the island.

5 – Formentor

Synonymous with landscapes that remain forever in the retina. Only 4 kilometers to reach the reward of seeing the idyllic viewpoint, with an additional small climb to reach the paradisiacal Faro de Formentor (lighthouse).

And for the more courageous, with the possibility of adding a few more kilometers to Sa Talaia d´Albercutx, with the most breathtaking views ever.

6 – Coll de sa Batalla 

Probably the most sacred climb on the island. Almost a trip back in time to past bucolic landscapes. Welcoming the Serra de Tramuntana. 8.3 kilometers at 5%, with a short break at the famous Salt de la Bella Dona.

7 – Sant Salvador

The Levante region in Majorca also has its colossus, Sant Salvador. A climb of 5 km with a slope of 7%. Constant is the word that defines this ascent. Don’t forget to visit the Sanctuary: you will find the jerseys of six-time World Champion Guilem Timoner on display.

 8 – Cura

Another climb away from the Serra de Tramuntana. From Randa, 5 kilometers with an average slope of 6% seasoned with the best views of the region of Pla de Mallorca. It is one of the most frequented climbs by cyclists on the whole island.

9 – Coll d’Honor

Coll d’Honor, between Bunyola and Alaró. 6 kilometers climb of 6% with slopes up to 12%. A climb sheltered by a closed forest, to Orient for a well-deserved break.

 10 – Valldemossa

The 4 kilometer climb of Valldemossa with a slope of 5% is our last recommendation for all lovers of cycling and the island of Majorca. One of the must-see villages to visit for its beauty, its coca potato and its almond horchata. Everything will not be just cycling, right?
