Sports and training holidays

With good weather all year round, Majorca is the perfect sporting destination for boosting your performance or taking part in an event against the backdrop of the Mediterranean coast or the Serra de Tramuntana mountains.

Cycling

Majorca is truly a mecca for any cyclist or cycling enthusiast, with amateurs and national teams coming from far and wide to pit themselves against the island’s scenic but demanding iconic mountain roads.

Bring your own trusty carbon-alloy steed or hire a state-of-the-art bike from one of Calvià’s many specialist bike hire centres – ideal for the essential king or queen of the mountain selfie at the top of a brutal climb.

Which is, of course, when a refuelling stop is needed. Look out for ‘Bike friendly’, ‘Cycling friendly’ or ‘Eat&Check’ flags as well as the cycling-themed cafés spread across the island. This includes our own Café Bidón in Magaluf , conveniently located at Hotel Samos.

Majorca is host to a number of cycling events including the Gran Fondo Mallorca 312 , a Milestone Series race. Held in April each year, the route passes through Es Capdellà and Galilea in the Calvià region – perfect observation points for enjoying the atmosphere!

Sitting in the foothills of the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range, the Calvià region is packed with routes for hiking , trail running, climbing and mountain biking (MTB), with other adventure sports such as canyoning elsewhere in Majorca.

The 1400-hectare finca pública Galatzó (Galatzó public country estate) is just 14 km from Hotel Samos, with scenic trails for all abilities. A stage of the GR 221 Ruta de Pedra en Sec starts here, running from Es Capdellà until Estellencs on the northern coast.

The finca pública also hosts the Galatzó Trail , a half and full mountain marathon in March each year, with other trail running events throughout the year across the island, ranging from short to ultra distances.

Whether you have just a morning or are planning a day trip, the options are endless. There are many guide books available to plan your own itinerary, and dedicated adventure and outdoors companies across Majorca for guided tours.
