Sunday: Ibiza Island; Arrival Ibiza town (Embarkation)
Individual arrival and group transfer from the airport to the port of Ibiza town. Your proud ship is ready for boarding at 6 pm. If you arrive earlier, you can leave your luggage on board after 2 pm and spend the afternoon as you wish. Go on a sight-seeing tour around the UNESCO-protected Old Town and enjoy the magnificent view from the walls of the mighty fortification system. The grand past of the island metropolis becomes alive, before the first communal meal lures you back on board. During a welcome drink on deck, you receive a brief introduction to life on board and get to know the crew. Overnight stay in the port of Ibiza.
Monday: Ibiza Island; Es Jondal - Cala d´Hort35KM
After an abundant breakfast a guided sightseeing-tour takes you across the UNESCO protected old town. Take a walk between the walls of the mighty fortress, where the grand past of the island metropolis becomes alive. Afterwards it’s time to “Cast off!” Your proud sailing ship takes you to the bay of Sa Caleta, which is framed by fisherboots. Your cycling tour leads you along fennel-lined streets, around the highest point of the island towards the sea passing vineyards and white-washed fincas as well as the lovely little town of St. Josef. Breathtaking views onto the bay and at the rocky island as well as onto the ship passing by will make you dream as soon as you reach the cliff coast. You reach the marvellous beach of Cala d’Hort in the afternoon, which invites you to take a swim in this temptingly turquoise blue water. If you like, you are allowed to swim back to the ship. Overnight stay on anchor close to the myth-enshrouded and fascinating rocky island of Es Vedra.
Tuesday: Formentera Island; La Savina – La Mola Lighthouse – Es Calo30KM
In the morning your ship takes you on a 2 hours cruise to the north of Formentera Island. It is the smallest inhabited island of the Balearic Islands and often quite justly called the Carribean of the Mediterranean. You do a side trip by bicycle to El Pilar and to the lighthouse La Mola, which Jules Verne mentions in one of his novels as „the lighthouse at the end of the world“. The cliffs behind the lighthouse fall off steeply for 140 m, and it is said that in good weather conditions one can see all the way to Africa. You will have some time in the late afternoon to go for a swim at one of the most beautiful beaches of the Balearic Islands. You also should not miss ending the day with a relaxing cocktail at the beach bar (Kiosko) of Es Calo to let the day fade away.
Wednesday: Ibiza Island; Es Canar - Benirras38KM
Your sailing ship takes you in the morning to Es Canar. Today’s cycle tour takes you though the agricultural centre of the island, where numerous almond, fig and carob trees grow. Here we are also going to see the typical red soil of Ibiza. We stop for lunch in a little village called Sant Carlos coming up with a large amount of Ibizan specialities. Afterwards you cycle along the mountainous and wooded north of Ibiza at an elevation of 300 m to the secluded bay of Benirras. Ones pirate heart will jump for joy! Framed by steep rocks you stay here on your proud ship overnight anchoring.
Thursday: Ibiza Island; Benirras – Mallorca Island
You lift anchor early in the morning to spend the day sailing. You are heading towards Port d’Andratx, which is situated in the southwest of Mallorca. After an extensive breakfast sailing enthusiasts can take an active part in the sailing of the ship. For those who would rather watch, it’s enough to enjoy the fresh sea breeze or to settle down with a book they have always wanted to read. After arriving Mallorca Island, there is time for a refreshing swim in the sea or a walk along the promenade of Port d’Andratx. To be side by side to noble yards as well as native fisher boats creates a special atmosphere to enjoy. Try one of the good fish restaurants for dinner today. What could be nicer than eating delicious food in a place with a view?
Friday: Mallorca Island; Port d'Andratx – Sant Elm - Port d`Andratx Round tour38KM
Today’s round trip tour takes you along the coast to the holidays resort Peguera. From here we cycle on less frequented country roads, while passing a 240 m-high mountain pass to Andratx; a place which kept its pristine charm. You continue cycling to the likeable and quiet resort of Sant Elm, where you can spent the afternoon as you like. Go for a swim at the beautiful local beach or join a walk to the old watchtower. In the late afternoon we finish off our bike tour with a small climb and arrive back in Port d`Andratx.
Saturday: Mallorca Island; Port d`Andtratx – Port de Soller40KM
Early in the morning our proud ship takes us along the impressive steep coastline to a sheltered cove in the northwest of the island to go on our journey’s final cycle tour.

Many beautiful views high above the sea will soon make you forget all the exertion. We finish our morning cycle tour at the picturesque town Valldemossa with its famous Carthusian monastery. Take your time to stroll through the flower decorated town during your extensive lunch break. In the afternoon, we continue along a lovely mountain road down to Port de Soller. The route is lined with highlights, such as the picturesque artist’s village of Deia and the former Son Marroig Estate.
