FAQs

Trip Changes

Our itineraries are an approximation of our trips. Trek Travel strives to offer each and every guest a vacation of a lifetime on every trip. At times routes, hotels, activities, etc. listed here may change at the discretion of the trip designer or guides to improve the trip experience.

  • Rider Type | 3
  • Average Daily Mileage | 30
  • Terrain | Hilly
  • Average Daily Elevation | 4,300

On all of our vacations, Trek Travel strives to find quiet, paved secondary roads or bike paths to experience a region; busy roads are avoided as much as possible. Mallorca Beach is best suited for our Type 3 Riders. Our Trek Travel guides can also easily accommodate Type 2 Riders, who seek less mileage or fewer uphills, with a boost in the van. Type 4 Riders will enjoy the extra mileage the avid route options offer. The terrain is varied with rolling plains and hilly coastline. Mountain climbs generally are a steady grade, but can be steep in places. See Itinerary for specific daily ride distance and elevation options.

The fall in Mallorca brings optimal riding temperatures (65F-75F) with evening temperatures dropping 5-10 degrees. Being an island, Mallorcan weather can be unpredictable at times and the island can experience rain showers and coastal winds. It is advisable to bring warm layers and rain gear.

On most Trek Travel trips, we offer non-riding options for riders who want to take the afternoon off, or travel companions who want to spend little or no time in the saddle. Some of these options may need to be scheduled before your trip—please contact one of our Trip Consultants for more information. Expenses and/or related transportation to these activities may not be included in the trip price. See Included In The Trip Price for more information. Some non-riding options on this trip are:

  • Relax and rejuvenate in style at the signature Spa at Castell Son Claret

  • Swim in the crystal blue Mediterranean
  • Golf
  • Explore medieval villages of the Tramuntana coast
