When making reservations for your MALLORCA HOLIDAY RENTALS don't just contact a travel agent: try booking online with owners direct and save the agents fee. When arriving in Mallorca most of the activities are actually on your doorstep. The landscape and the weather is conducive to just about any outdoor sport imaginable, this island is all about the magnificent outdoors. It is therefore understandable why so many people of all ages come here just for the sports. Most of the ten million people who vacation on these shores visit the virgin beaches leaving the countryside open for you to enjoy the wild stretches of this wondrous island and its magnificent mountains.

Due to the island’s diverse landscape Mallorca is popular with not only walkers but also mountain climbers. If you are interested in a leisurely stroll through the countryside or a more challenging trek through the rugged tundra, Mallorca has it all. To give you an example there is the limestone peaks in the west to the fertile plains of the interior. If you are up for it there are also the rocky coastal paths in the east that have been used by the locals for centuries. You will find most of the trails are marked so be sure and pick up a guide book as you don't want to get lost. If you are also in the pro level you might try the Route of Dry Rock that crosses the Serra de Tramuntana. This trek could take up to seven days to complete so come prepared as most nights will be spent in old mountain huts.

If you would like to do a little or a lot of cycling, then you have come to the right place. Don't worry about bring your bike with you as you can rent it or anything else you might need while on the trail. To give you an example of how good the cycling is the island has 777 miles of adapted trails for cycling. The roads aren't a bad place either as there are dedicated bike lanes. The best time of the year to visit the island for outdoor pursuits is during the autumn, spring or winter, when it is cooler and better to ride. Just think about riding up a rugged mountain trail when it's 40 degrees Celsius. There is just about any type of cycling you can think of on Mallorca but be sure and take a map with you especially in the mountains.

If you are a golfer then book your MALLORCA HOLIDAY RENTALS in an area near the course which will not be hard as there are almost two dozen of these to chose from. You can play 18 holes in the morning and lay on the beach in the afternoon. The nature lover will fall in love with this place especially the bird enthusiasts. This island paradise is on the flight path for birds travelling from Africa to Europe needing a rest stop. There are some 230 different species that visit the Parc Natural de Albufera with its pleasant places to hide and watch these birds. There is a lot to do including horseback riding and all kinds of water sports from sailing to windsurfing to name but a few that will keep you and your family busy for a long time.
