This excursion is great for riders with moderate fitness who can take on hilly terrain at a steady pace with confidence on gravel tracks and trails, over loose stones and some rough ground. You ride high above Soller on four-wheel drive tracks, through olive groves and into the Balitx valley.
The way back takes you through the quaint villages of Fornaltux and Biniaraix where you can stop for refreshments.
The second part of the route takes you up onto the western part of the valley, some short passages are a bit more technical. Less experienced riders can dismount and push a few meters to get across the rocky sections.
Optional: consider taking an EMTB
