TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

NAME: DRIVING THROUGH THE “SIERRA DE TRAMUNTANA”

The Sierra de Tramuntana mountain chain is the main in the Balearic Islands. It occupies a third of the territory of the island of Majorca and we will find in it beautiful rugged mountains and exceptional fertile valleys.

It is located in the northwest of the island and it is home to the two largest reservoirs of Majorca, known under the name of: Cuber and Gorg Blau.

The Serra de Tramuntana, for its great natural and environmental value, was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2011. The proposed route runs along its length by 215 km of asphalt. Being a mountain route has significant curved road sections with hard visibility, so in many cases drivers should be increasing caution.

The ride will start at the city of Palma. From there we will take the highway that leads to Andratx. We will take the detour that leads to Calvia. From there, we will cross the first mountain stage to reach the village of Puigpunyent. Once there, we will go towards the village of Sóller, driving always by outstanding mountain roads. We will stop to visit the mountain village of Fornalutx and then we will go up to reach  Escorca. From there we will take the road that leads to Pollensa and from this coastal beautiful village, we will drive our motorbikes back to Palma by Inca highway, to end our route.
