    Day 1: DIRECT from Jersey to Majorca

    Our tour will begin at Jersey Airport at approximately 08:00. Our dedicated Bontour Tour Manager will be waiting to greet you and ready to assist with check in if required. At 09:40 we will depart direct to Majorca from Jersey with FlyDirect, arriving at 12:50 local time.

    On arrival we will sit back and relax for the comfortable transfer to our hotel the 4* EIX Alcudia, located in the north of Majorca and around an hour’s drive from the airport. The rest of the day is at leisure to unpack, settle in and explore the surrounding area. This evening we will enjoy a welcome dinner together as a group at our hotel.

    Day 2: Majorcan Fabrics and Cap Formentor

    After a good night's sleep and another delicious breakfast we will embark on a full day excursion during which we will be immersed in traditional Mallorcan village life.

    At the eastern end of the Serra de Tramuntana, and just a short drive from our hotel in Alcudia, we will find the rural town of Pollença. An enchanting town packed with ancient blonde stone architecture, Pollença has adapted to Majorca‘s influx of tourism better than perhaps any other small town, retaining its long-held traditions, relaxed way of life and sultry Spanish soul. Having explored Pollença fully, we will make our way to the nearby port, where we will have time to stroll the promenade beside the long sandy beach, or enjoy a drink and bite to eat in one of the many typical cafes that enjoy dazzling sea views to one side, and a breath-taking mountain backdrop to the other.

    Cape Formentor

    After our free time in Port de Pollença we will next visit an artisan textile factory founded in 1854. Dedicated to the production of typical Majorca fabrics, traditionally known as Roba de Llengües (Cloth of Tongues). To this day traditional values are used to maintain the character of all fabric and products. At the end of our visit we‘ll enjoy another tasting of typical local products.

    Before finishing our experience today, we will make our way by coach to the spectacular Cap de Formentor, where the wild peninsula offers breath-taking views to 400 metre tall cliffs, swooping seabirds and sandy beaches far below.

    After time to take photos and soak up the view, we will return to our hotel in Alcudia and once again enjoy dinner together.

    Day 3: Day at leisure

    Today is a free day, and a chance to enjoy the island exactly as you wish. Maybe you‘d like to take the time to do a little souvenir shopping, enjoy a long lazy lunch in a tapas bar or spend a few hours on the beach or by the hotel pool. Alternatively you may wish to join our optional excursion today, which is an exciting boat trip along the rocky coastline, keeping a sharp eye out for marine life and perhaps even venturing for a swim in crystal clear waters. The choice is entirely yours.

    Paella

    This evening we will once again dine at our hotel in Alcudia, before packing for departure the following day

    Optional Excursion - Catamaran Magic - £45 per person

    Day 4: Sóller, The Orange Train & Centre Capvespre.

    After breakfast today we will check out of our Alcudia hotel and set forth for our next adventure through the Tramuntana mountains towards Sóller.

    The area of Sóller has long been famed for its citrus orchards and olive groves, and it’s the latter we will learn more about this morning. At Centre Capvespre we will learn about the production of one of Majorca’s oldest trading resources, olive oil, or ‘liquid gold’. After an introduction to production methods both past and present, we will enjoy an oil tasting, and discover the unique taste, aroma and attributes of Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

    After this fascinating experience have some time in the elegant and compact town of Sóller itself. Typical Mallorcan cobbled streets filled with individual boutiques and art galleries converge on the bustling plaza, where the arresting baroque church of St. Bartholomew watches over a host of al fresco cafes, and the chatter of happy diners is regularly interrupted by the tinkling bell of a vintage electric tram, announcing its imminent passage right through the square.

    Village Soller Train

    Lovingly preserved since 1913, this 5km tram route links Sóller to its port, once a small fishing village and now a fashionable seaside destination, where the promenade is lined with excellent seafood restaurants and boutique hotels. After a short visit to this most beautiful part of Majorca, our luggage will be transported by road, while for us it’s all aboard the vintage Orange Train, for a fabulous journey through the UNESCO World Heritage Site Tramuntana Mountains, to the picturesque mountain-top town of Sóller beyond.

    For 30km we will traverse through magnificent scenery, through 13 tunnels, over countless bridges and an impressive viaduct. Opened in 1912, this narrow-gauge railway provided a lifeline for remote Sóller, allowing the smooth and speedy transportation of the many citrus fruits grown in the area to the markets and port of Palma. Over 100 years later, the wooden railway has become one of Majorca’s most popular visitor attractions.

    At the end of another fascinating day we will be transferred from the train station by coach to the heart of vibrant Palma, where we will check into the 4* THB Mirador Hotel. Dinner this evening is at your leisure in Palma.

    Day 5: Palma

    After breakfast at the hotel, we will set out to explore the picturesque alleyways and sundappled squares of Palma’s historic old town. Along with our English-speaking guide we will see highlights including the indoor market, city hall and spectacular gothic cathedral whilst learning about the rich and fascinating history of this melting-pot city.

    Palma Cathedral

    Afterwards we will be advised by our guide as to where best to enjoy a tasty tapas lunch, followed by free time to continue discovering Palma at our own pace. You may wish to return and explore the interior of the Cathedral, visit the ancient Arab baths, wander the maze of medieval streets filled with local boutiques and art galleries or simply relax and people watch from an al fresco café table.

    This evening we are once again free to enjoy dinner at leisure in Palma. Choose from a wide selection of restaurants in the city, from relaxed dining al fresco dining to Michelin star options. Our hotel and Tour Manager will be able to assist with suggestions if required.

    Day 6: Valldemossa and La Granja Country House

    After a hearty breakfast in our hotel, this morning we will board a comfortable coach together with our Tour Manager and head towards the foothills of the Tramuntana mountains, where the coastal road offers spectacular views of the Mediterranean ocean.

    Our first port of call for the day will be the picture-perfect hill-top village of Valldemossa, where blonde stone villas contrast vividly against green olive groves and a brilliant blue sky. During our visit we will explore pretty cobbled streets strung with colourful hanging baskets, and discover the imposing La Cartuja Monastery where famed composer Chopin once spent a winter producing some of his finest pieces. After time to soak up the highlights of this ancient village, grab a bite to eat from one of many locally owned cafes, and the opportunity to take in a short yet uplifting piano concert of Chopin’s work, we will depart by coach for our next destination.

    Valldemossa.jpg

    La Granja Country House is situated just 15km from the centre of bustling Palma, but worlds away in atmosphere. Nestled deep within the Tramuntana mountains, La Granja is a fine example of a 17th Century Majorcan mansion, surrounded by landscaped terraces, beautiful gardens, natural waterfalls and burbling springs.

    On crossing the threshold into the cool house interior we will also step back in time to experience a complete cross-section of life in this stately home. From the opulent living quarters of the aristocratic former owners to the rustic working areas of the surrounding agricultural estate, every room offers something new to discover. Those of a strong disposition may wish to step into the cellar, where the remnants of an ancient torture chamber remain.

    Our visit includes a self-guided tour and a tasting of typical snacks from around Majorca.

    On return to Palma our evening is at leisure, and our Tour Manager will once again be happy to assist in suggesting dining options in the area.

    Day 7: Pure Majorca and the Spice of Life

    Enjoy another tasty Mallorcan breakfast before getting ready for a day of contrasting experiences including a visit to a typical Majorcan market, a tour of glittering salt fields and the peaceful enjoyment of a mountain monastery.

    After about one hour’s drive through the beautiful countryside, our first port of call will be the small medieval town of Santanyi on the south eastern corner of Majorca. Built of the same golden yellow stone as Palma’s Cathedral, Santanyi is an incredibly pretty town which comes alive every market day. Originally very much an agricultural market, this is the place to stock up on local produce - check out the impressive selection of olives!

    Once our purchases are finalised and after having toured the village, we will embark a short drive to the picturesque fishing village of Cala Figuera. Cala Figuera, just like Santanyi remains pleasantly untouched by mass tourism. It is still a thriving fishing community built of white washed cottages and boat houses adorned with painted shutters. You will quickly see why Cala Figuera prides itself on being one of the most photographed locations on the island.

    Cala Figuera.jpg

    Finding a place for lunch will be an easy task here. Enjoy a bite to eat at leisure before we head towards our next destination, Es Trenc and its salt fields.

    Salt, the Spice of Life has been harvested in Majorca for as long can be remembered with some 15,000 tonnes still produced today. Admire the impressive man-made salt lakes as we are taken on a tour of the majestic salt dunes to learn about the production. A slightly surreal vision yet an essential part of Majorca’s economy, the salt fields will undoubtedly leave a lasting impression.

    Leaving the coast for now, we will head a little north and a little higher towards the Santuari de Nostra Senyora de Cura, a beautiful monastery, perched on a hill originally for defensive purposes and now in an ideal location to enrich ones spiritual life. Enjoy the staggering 360° panoramic views across the island and the peacefulness of the area.

    On our last evening in Palma we will enjoy a farewell dinner together as a group at a local restaurant.

    Day 8: Majorca to Jersey

    This morning we will be up early and check out of our hotel for collection at approximately 05:15 and return to Palma Airport. Our direct flight back to Jersey departs at 07:30 and whisks us quickly home, landing at 08:40 and with the rest of the weekend still ahead of us to enjoy.
