The 5 best Easy MTB routes in Mallorca

1 Cala Pi

Distance: 30km

Elevation gain: + 300m

Difficulty: easy

Approximate duration: 3-5 hours

Route through the south coast of the island where we will go along the sea practically the entire route for a varied terrain of roads, trails, some asphalt and some stretch of stone which you can walk if you find it difficult.

A spectacular route for its landscapes of cliffs and the sea, where you will pass through the small seaside towns of Sa Rapita, S’Estanyol and Cala Pi. We will also have the opportunity to see some of the defence towers that were used many years ago to warn one part of the island to the other when it was being attacked by the enemy. We will also discover some of the oldest estates on the island among vineyards.

We recommend you bring something to eat and drink as you may not find anything open during the route although in the mentioned places you can find bars and supermarkets but normally only in high season.

 2 Porto Colom

Distance: 25km

Elevation gain: 300m +

Difficulty: easy

Approximate duration: 3-5 hours

This route covers part of the eastern side of the island along roads and trails in the San Salvador area.They will take us to one of the most important farms on the island, El Fangar, and then goes towards the sea where you will see the turquoise waters and reach one of the most natural ports large on the island, Porto Colom.

On this route we will have some ascents and descents on paths and trails without complicated technical areas. We will only find a slightly more difficult section near the sea that will help us to improve our techniques and if not, you always have the option of walking for a while.

On this route we will not find anywhere to buy food or drink so we recommend that you go well prepared.

3 Arta

Distance: 28km

Elevation gain: 600m +

Difficulty: easy

Approximate duration: 4-5 hours

Route through the northeast side of the island where by road you will reach the sea to see some of the best beaches on the island. You will pass by the Llevant Natural Park and also through the towns of Arta, Cala Ratjada, Cala Murada where you can stop to eat and drink something.

In the summer season it can get quite hot due to the lack of trees, so the best time would be from January to June or from September to December.

As there will be long stretches without passing through villages or towns, we recommend you always carry some food and drink with you.

Apart from the photogenic landscapes we also recommend that you visit the Castle of Arta

After on trails and roads, you will cross centuries-old olive fields between the mountains, an ancient Roman road and spectacular descending landscapes.

If you can do this route after rainfall maybe you can see water running through all the torrents.As we will not go through any town, remember to take water and snacks.
