Puig Major, Mallorca

Puig Major is the highest point on the Island of Mallorca that you can cycle too. Follow the Ma-10 from Port de Pollensa or Soller, and the Monnaber tunnel marks the end of the climb from both directions. 

Due to its fame and popularity, Puig Major is climbed on many of Mallorca’s cycling routes, including races and sprotives like Challenge Mallorca and Mallorca 312. There is one road higher on Mallorca, but it is a closed-access military road. 

The Climb in Detail

“The longest climb on the Island, and great fun, but be careful of the change in weather that is possible at the top of the climb.” - Adam Waldock, Bikecation customer


The Ascents

The most popular climb up Puig Major is from Soller, following the Ma-10, which is around 14km at an average gradient of 6% and is Mallorca’s longest climb. The north-eastern climb from Panta de Gorg Blau is much shorter (7km) and easier, although you have to climb significantly to get to Panta de Gorg Blau in the first place. 

The tallest point on the Island

Puig major is a training favourite due to it's steady incline. It is also one of the main access points for other routes on the island. The views over the Gorg Blau from the Northern side of the tunnel are stunning and it is well worth stopping to take a photo!
