Puig Major, Mallorca

Puig Major is the highest point on the Island of Mallorca that you can cycle too. Follow the Ma-10 road from Port de Pollensa or Soller - once you get to the Monnaber tunnel, you’ll know you got to the end of the climb in either direction.

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 frequented climb to Puig Major starts from Soller, through the Ma-10 road. The road is approximately 14km long and averages at 6% of ascent making it the longest climb in Mallorca. On the other hand, the climb to Puig Major coming from the north-east starting at Panta de Gorg Blau is significantly shorter (i.e. 5km) and therefore easier to conquer.

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!
