STAGES OF MTB CHALLENGE 360
A general idea of the ride
We have planned the stages always looking for the most virgin areas, the best trails for MTB, unpaved and, in the most logical way, to make this trip to the island, in accordance with the current regulation of natural parks. Anyway, there are some parts of the trail, especially to connect these beautiful sections, that we must go through some secondary road, but keeping these sections below 20% of the total. We are very proud to present this program, which has been the result of hard and long research work across the island, which, and without a doubt, satisfies so many cyclists who trust us.
- Total stages: 7, but they can be added or removed as the client wishes
- Total distance: 364 Km.
- Total ascends: 8.000 mtr.
- Total descends: 7.876 mtr.
- Highest point: 824 mtr.
Stage 1. Ses Salines - Cas Concos
Cap Salines along the wild southern coast of Mallorca
Start of the program with a flat stage but requires great and good skills-technique on the bike due the rocky paths and trails full of lose stones and rough steps modelled by the sea and the waves.
The strongest point in this stage is the sea view that accompany us practically all the way and the unspoiled coves that we are finding along the route. Perfect start for a great week and to check the level of participants
Estimated time: 6h 32 m Distance: 62,75 Km. Total ascends: 753 mtr. Total descends: 682 mtr. AHighest point: 185 mtr.
EStage 2. Sant Salvador de Felanitx
From Cas Concos to Son Macià trough the mountain of Stant Salvador de Felanitx
Hard stage with an accumulated ascent over the 1,000 meters on tricky trails, we’ll ascend to the Sanctuary of Sant Salvador de Felanitx with a height of 510 m above sea level.
Then we are expecting a dizzy and technical descent to reach the sea and enjoy one of the virgin coves of Mallorca such as Cala Magraner. After a marvellous pause we climb back up the prisoner’s path, built by Republican prisoners during the Spanish Civil War.
Estimated time: 5h 30 m Distance: 51,88 Km. Total ascends: 1.328 mtr. Total descends: 1.340 mtr. Highest point: 510 mtr.
Stage 3. Monasterio de Bonany
From Son Maciá to Artá through the core and flat area of the island.
This Stage has lower slopes than the previous, but longer in distance. We cross the unknown centre of the island on practically deserted trails, backroads, paths and tracks where we don’t gone find practically anybody.
If we still have strength we can go up to the hermitage of Bonany in Petra, birth place of fry Junipero Serra, missionary founder of many missions in the west coast of USA, especially in California. We’ll see wonderful views of the bay of Alcudia and the peninsula of Llevant, our destination.
Estimated time: 5h 30 m Distance: 71,58 Km. Total ascends: 1.000 mtr. Total descends: 1.036 mtr. Highgest pointa: 318 mtr.
Stage 4. Parc natural de Llevant
Ride around the natural park of LLevant
One of the most protected and unspoiled areas of the island that deserves great attention by the lovers of the MTB.
That's why we decided to spend one more day in Artá and enjoy the wonderful landscapes that this corner of the island offers to us with his lovely beaches without hotels and fewer tourists. On this day we enjoy again a wonderful sea view and great ascend.
Estimated time: 5h 00 m Distance: 50,58 Km. Total ascends: 1.057 mtr. Total descends: 1.057 mtr. Highgest point: 432 mtr.
Stage 5. from Artá to Pollensa
Northern island and Alcúdia bay.
EWe start from Arta to ride along the north east coast of the island. The first part of the excursion has amazing views from the Alcudia bay and the Tramuntana Range trough spectacular, though and technical MTB paths, in private proprieties that sure we don't see anybody.
After a wonderful and long descends we go on the coast line all the time until Alcúdia and the nature park of s’Albufera, one of the most important bird’s refuge way to Africa, we ride on dust and soft sand paths, a new experience for most of the mountain bikers.
Estimated time: 6h 30 m Distance: 58,31 Km. Total ascends: 688 mtr. Total escends: 773 mtr. Highgest point: 387 mtr.
Stage 6. From Pollesa to Mancor de sa Vall
Tramuntana mountain range, from Pollença to Mancor de sa vall, through the Monastery of Lluc
This stage is one of the first stages in the Tramuntana Mountains; it’s one of the most unevenness in the program and takes place in the northern part of the Sierra de Tramuntana, being a classic stage of mountain biking in Mallorca for the landscapes and trails.
First we do the long, long climb until es coll de sa linia for afterwards enjoy the long, long descends to Mancor de sa Vall on a technical trail, not for his narrowest otherwise the constant lose stones that we find on the way. The highlights of the stage are the monastery of Lluc and the amazing descends.

Stage 7. Alaró -Santa Maria del Camí
Tramuntana mountain range, from Alaró to Santa Maria del camí through the village of Orient.
Last stage of our trip and spectacular tour with three mountain passes. This final stage is possibly one of the hardest one in the program, due in part, to the accumulated tiredness of the past days and the though slopes with a high % of steepness, that we climb on this day.
Our tour ends in a wonderful private propriety, es Cabàs, where we can enjoy a wonderful end for this amazing and awesome MTB days. This is a technical stage but an amazing tour with a long and great descend, perfect to enjoy the last km.
Estinated time: 6h 30 m Distance: 45,65 Km. Total ascends: 1.514 mtr. total descends: 1.548 mtr. Highest point:: 671 mtr.
Lovely evironment for your rest
Here you can see some of the hotels that we use in the island across the program.
Can Moragues is an old stately house from the 18th century, located in the centre of Artá. It was restored in 1999 to become a hotel. With 8 rooms is a quiet hotel in a historical village as Artá.
In the core of the island Sa Vall is a 16th century country house, completely restored respecting traditional architecture, providing all the comforts. It has three apartments for two people, an apartment for four and two double rooms.
Maybe the highlight of this tour. This ancient property of Arabic origin is located just 15 min from Palma and its owners have preserved the architectural elements beautifully though the centuries. Parts of the farm such as the arches and the canal in the oldest part of the manor are listed features.
Traditional Majorcan style and clean contemporary lines combine marvellously. For a one-of-a-kind holiday experience. With only 12 double rooms, there is always a wonderful silence and tranquillity at the hotel which will make you feel at home immediately.
