The unbeatable Mediterranean climate on the island of Mallorca during the month of February makes it an ideal destination for those looking to enjoy a cycling holiday from across the globe. At Lluna Aqua by unusual hotels in Sóller we want to encourage those who love being on two wheels to think about heading to “the island of tranquillity” to take their passion to the next level; to take part in routes with Sóller as the protagonist whilst also enjoying the greatest pleasures which can come from reserving your stay in an area enveloped amongst the marvellous Serra de Tramuntana mountain range, where time passes a little slower whilst enjoying the local gastronomy and recharging your batteries to get you ready for the day ahead.
The Lluna Aqua by Unusual Hotels in Sóller as a starting point for this cycling route
One of the most noteworthy characteristics of the Lluna Aqua by Unusual Hotels in Sóller is that its location makes it an excellent starting point for countless cycling routes in Mallorca, for both beginner and experienced levels. For those who are new to the sport, there is nothing better than starting with a pleasant ride to the Port of Sóller, a route which you can do in less than half an hour and at a slow pace and with a smooth descent, perfect for families who want to enjoy some exercise together whilst taking in the natural landscapes in a relaxed manner and who want to experience the unforgettable views from the Port of Sóller, treating themselves to a well-deserved ice cream whilst the Mediterranean breeze brushes over their cheeks.
For the more experienced cyclists there is an array of opportunities to fulfil all types of experiences. Firstly, the unmissable climb to the Coll de Sóller which begins as you head out of the town and runs for 9 km with an average incline of 5.3% until rising to a height of around 500 metres from which you can glimpse at the fabulous views of both the mountain range and the Pla de Mallorca. This great effort at the start of the route is compensated for with a flat section through the centre of the island, including passing through the beautiful areas of Bunyola, Santa María and Lloseta, whilst covering the many kilometres of the Serra de Tramuntana.
The Serra de Tramuntana- a favourite amongst cyclists
The Serra de Tramuntana declared a World Heritage Site by UNSECO, has geographical characteristics that transform it into a quest for cyclists which is as equally beautiful as it is challenging. Sóller, the capital of the area, is at the epicentre of many routes which both start and pass through the city and make it an essential stop for a refreshment. Featuring several ascents to peaks of more than 1000 metres during a route which runs for more than 110 kilometres with the icing on the cake during the climb to the Puig Major, with an average incline of 6%, is a challenge for the more experienced cyclists who seek to improve themselves each day without having to give up the unforgettable landscapes.
Hiking in Sóller for when you take a break from your bike
Following all the hard work, it’s likely that you might want to hop off your bike for a moment and explore some of the countless hiking routes that start at the Lluna Aqua by Unusual Hotels in Sóller. The climate is usually mild for cyclists who want to enjoy the best views available in Mallorca and from February you can go on a hike and experience this pleasurable feeling which comes from exploring a protected environment whilst the sounds of nature surround and accompany you in a harmonious way. The hiking routes that start in Sóller allow you to get to know a part of Mallorca which is not often frequented, but which forms part of the local culture.
