Majorcan Mountain Adventure Ride
Mallorca/Menorca Spain

When you think of Mallorca, the instant images of ‘beaches and sea’ first come to mind. But truthfully, there is much more countryside available to explore than one may first assume! Peaceful backcountry awaits, where the nature is still relatively untouched and the local people still have time for deep thinking and enjoyment. Here you can relax in the shady palm gardens, ride through lovely aromatic forests and over the picturesque fields on your way to the sunny beach. Once there, you will enjoy the friendly island culture and sunbathing options of this beautiful Mediterranean island.
The trail starts on the northern part of the island and is the most famous of the Balearean Islands. It is situated near the protected areas of Albufera, allowing for a chance to explore undisturbed natural beauty and a varied, beautiful landscape most tourists don't take the time to enjoy, while being only a few miles from the warm, sunshine filled, sandy beaches of Alcudia.  They are truly missing out!
You will journey through the surrounding mountains of Alcudia Bay and overnight at the famous Monastery of Lluc and then later at a remote mountain refuge which was just recently opened up to the public again.  The trails will be those of the Spanish pilgrims and their unique dry-stone paths from the 13th century which were once used to bring ice down to the villages.  They were also essential in the transportation of goods between places and people.  Along the way are stone retaining walls, fountains, shelters, "snow houses", riverbeds, villages, roman bridges.  With a little luck, sightings of the wild goats, sheep, wild cat, the weasel and the rare black vulture complete the scenery.
