Remember this trip can be tailor-made and is completely flexible. This itinerary is simply a suggestion.
Arrive into Palma and you will be picked up and taken to your hotel in the north of the island. We have a choice of accommodation options for you to choose from depending on your preference of location, price and facilities. Choose from different hotels, different models of bike and holiday dates and times to suit you. Depending on when you arrive, take the first day to explore the local area and build a plan for where you want to ride/run during your stay.
Start the day off with a swim set in the hotel’s on-site 25m semi-Olympic pool, or dive into the crystal clear waters of the ‘Bay of Pollensa’ for an open water swim. Following this, jump on the bike and head towards the famous Tramuntana mountain range for some unforgettable cycling. Mallorca is the most popular place to cycle in Europe so you can be guaranteed of incredible riding here. If your legs are still feeling fresh, make this a brick session by adding a run in the afternoon along the north coast. On the Alcudia peninsula, you’ll find a network of trails for you to explore. These are perfect for some challenging, scenic runs. On return to your hotel, enjoy a relaxed evening, rewarding yourself with some fine food and drink.
Mallorca has often been referred to as a cyclists theme park and today we recommend that you make the most of this by taking on the legendary Sa Calobra. At 9.5km and averaging 7%, it’s great for building cycling strength and this is where British Cycling and Team Sky have honed their skills. The views from the road are breathtaking. Off the bike, one of our favourite runs to do from Alcudia involves heading northeast to Mirador Penya del Migdia where you’ll take in the breathtaking views over the bay. This area is full of quiet, intertwining paths so make sure to have some water with you as you trail across the rugged, scenic landscape.
A perfect morning to stretch and release on the beach. As mentioned, this trip is fully flexible, however, if you choose to make it a three-night stay, you will be transferred back to Palma airport today.
Prior to this, there are still plenty of things you can do to make the most of your last few hours on the island. Explore Mallorca’s hidden beaches and enjoy a final spell on the bike along the pristine coast or hit the gym for some much needed strength and core work. If if the last few days have taken it out of you, relax in your hotel and bask in the Mediterranean sun.
The north of Mallorca is one of the most popular European destinations for triathletes of all levels. Stay in Puerto Pollensa or Alcudia to enjoy access to climbs, flatlands, or coastal paths. Enjoy runs or rides overlooking the sparkling Mediterranean or head west to test yourself in the revered Tramuntana mountain range. There’s something for everyone on the sunny Balearic island which is why Mallorca is such a popular destination amongst triathletes.
