Set in the western Mediterranean sea and settled for more than 3,000 years, Mallorca/Majorca, Spain’s largest island, boasts a rich history and diverse ecology. From rugged coastlines and mysterious caves to charming mountain towns and world-class vineyards, there are endless riches waiting to be discovered.
Mallorca offers dramatic scenery and fabulous driving. Whilst it’s a compact island, this tour begs to be lingered over. Distances that appear short on maps usually involve twisting, winding roads and rewarding vistas. There are craggy coastlines, shimmering salt pans and red earth plains dotted with windmills. Roman roads cross apricot and almond groves and through small market towns. Follow the beautiful twisting coast road between the sea and pine-scented hills to one of Mallorca’s prettiest villages with its narrow, steep cobbled streets. Stay in just two exquisite and luxury hotels in Mallorca.
Getting to and from Mallorca: There are regular ferries to Mallorca from Barcelona, Spain and Toulon, France.
