The Andratx shuttle ride delivers the very best of Mallorca’s riding. Hills, views, wild mountains and villages are all along the route. From Andratx we start the day doing what we will be doing for the rest of the day. The morning will be fairly casual as we make our way over the rolling hills on the way to Valldemossa for lunch. Back on the road we will make our way to Soller and the climb to Puig Major. This brute of a climb (14km, average 6%) starts in the warm valley of Soller and ends up in the alpine region of the island. It is spectacular, tough and the pinnacle of climbing on the island. From the summit tunnel we make our way past alpine lakes and forests before dropping back down to the ocean and our hotel in Alcudia.
