Sun, sea and sand await holidaymakers on the beautiful island of Majorca, but whilst there are ample opportunities to sit back, relax and soak up the sunshine, Majorca also caters well to adrenaline junkies seeking some adventure on holiday. Here are a few top must-try outdoor pursuits for an active break:
Fly like James Bond!
If you’re looking for something a little different, why not head down to El Toro beach, home to crystal blue seas, smooth white sands – and a water jet pack experience like no other. Visitors can arrange a day trip with WET-JET’s experienced instructors, who allow you to take control of a Jetlev-Flyer jet pack and spend the day flying over the sea in style. Instructors will point out the interesting landmarks and attractions while you immerse yourself in this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Thrill seekers can ‘learn to fly’ in 30 minutes, under the guidance of one of the company’s professional instructors.
Tramuntana bike tour
There’s no better way to experience Majorca than by bike, and Tramuntana Tours are only too happy to help you on your way. You can take a cycling tour of the mountainous Soller region, which takes in some of the best sights and rich woodland available on the island. Built-in cycle computers make sure you never lose your way and pros can even take their own pedals. Rental prices start from €14 a day, making it an extremely affordable and enjoyable day out. Alternatively, Tramuntana Tours offer excursions on foot, sea kayak or boat, always accompanied by an experienced guide.
Outdoor pursuits don’t get more exhilarating than a hot air balloon ride over the island, and breath-taking views await visitors on this fantastic experience. Passengers have the choice of taking an hour long trip at sunrise or sunset, with stunning views that include the many mountains and valleys in Majorca, as well as spectacular glimpses of neighbouring Menorca and Cabrera. Flights last for a minimum of an hour, but you can stay in the skies for as long as you can afford.
There’s never a dull moment in Majorca, with these (and many more!) fantastic outdoor pursuits waiting to keep you entertained. Majorca holidays are available from as little as £185 per person – to find out more and to book online, visit cosmos.co.uk.
