The 4 day adventure begins in the old town of Ibiza – the medieval UNESCO heritage site with its enchanting, winding cobbled streets. You will be kitted out in the latest top quality mountain bikes and soon be cycling with ease. We will pass the stunning scenery of the salt flats of Las Salinas before following the coast with a few stops for a swim and lunch. You will complete 65kms by the time you reach Cala Compte where the kayaks will be waiting for us. It’s then a 10km kayak (approx 3 hours) including the discovery of some wonderful caves before going to the first hotel.
Waking early to a lovely breakfast, we’ll load up the kayaks with supplies and head off on a gruelling 30km adventure by sea (approx 9 hours). We’ll head up the west coast of Ibiza under the gaze of spectacular 350m cliffs and bays only accessible from the sea. The first place we’ll land will be after about 4 hours kayaking and we’ll take a well-earned rest and enjoy a much needed lunch. After lunch we’ll continue passing amazing views and some massive caves, completing the day in the north of Ibiza. This night we spend at Walking Ibiza`s new La Montana casita, high up in the hills with stunning views, its a mix of bunk beds and camping under the stars!
This day is a wonderful hiking day of 25kms. We’ll be hugging the sea around the ‘crystal coast’ where you can find Ibiza’s very own crystals – just the thing to energize yourself – then we’ll continue on, passing ancient terraced farmland and secluded bays (for swimming!) along the way. Lunch will be taken under a rare old oak tree then we’ll keep going, past the most northerly point of Ibiza. At this point we’ll be heading south – and homebound! We’ll spend this night in a lovely hotel on the coast.
After filling up with breakfast we’ll get back on our familiar mountain bikes for the 50kms homeward stretch. We’ll pass through some towns today and then head back into the forests with the lovely scent of pine trees all around us. Down ancient lanes, passing incredible modern villas and eventually with the sight of Ibiza old town coming into view, you’ll know the 4 day challenge is almost complete. A cheering crowd and champagne corks popping will welcome you at the finishing line! But being Ibiza, the adventure doesn’t end there.
It’s a quick shower and change before going out for a celebration dinner and maybe onwards…
