    The climb from the village of Sa Calobra to the Coll dels Reis is one of the main reasons that cyclists come to Mallorca. With an average gradient of seven percent it goes up over ten kilometers. So Sa Calobra may not be as challenging as the Alps or the Pyrenees, but it is still an exceptionally beautiful climb. The 26 hairpin bends and the exciting descent will also make your heart beat faster. The first two kilometers are very easy and could quickly give you the impression that the entire route is easy. But after a few steep sections, you will quickly realize that you have to divide your strength. There's something else to come. After kilometer 7 there is also the hardest part with an incline of ten percent! If your legs are already tired here - you will feel it.

    Caution is advised here with the traffic, but in Mallorca motorists are usually very considerate when dealing with cyclists. And weather-wise - at 30 degrees in the shade you should of course think about it or provide enough water, because you can no longer fill it up until you have reached the top. The driveway definitely has a lot to offer. The perfect challenging road, the great view and the subsequent descent, of course. So go ahead and enjoy!

    The food down the beach is nothing special. In any case, at the top of the Kreutz (if available) again cater. And of course after the excursion buses times inquire. The roads are very narrow, the buses overtake hochzu also without visibility, since there is hardly any visibility.

    Sa Calobra is a "MUST" for anyone traveling by bike in Mallorca.
    Below you have to walk through a small tunnel to Torrent de Pareis.

    An absolute must when in Majorca! The long steep climb is the ultimate Majorca climb with steep gradients, sharp hairpins and stunning views. The food at the bottem is very average and not worth the pricey cost, however this is not a climb to feast before as your stomach won't thank you half way up.

    Caution needs to be taken during busy seasons as traffic although considerate can be heavy for a Majorca pass. However the vast majority of the road will be filled with fellow cyclists taking on the challenge alongside you.

    A dream of departure or driveway.
    It is not recommended to drive uphill when the many coaches start from Sa Calobra.

    Division of forces is the order of the day. The breathtakingly beautiful view makes you forget again and again what you are doing. Once at the top, however, you can reward yourself with freshly squeezed orange juice (€ 3 is worth it).

    I tackled the Strasser to Colobra in October 2018 after many of my friends raved about it. What can I say, the up and downhill sections are fantastic and worth the effort. Down in the village it is worth going to Torret Parais. .

    This was the most impressive pass I ride on Mallorca. It has everything you can ask when looking for a perfect ride. Curves, Speed, Effort, Adrenaline. It is a must: if you are fit enough and if you are not, stay above and take a look from the bridge. It is truly amazing.

    I was there on may coming from Lluc and I can recommend, that you do this one quite early as during the midday lot of busses came down. I’ve didn’t visit the village, as I plan going to other 4 passes on that day, but from above sees very nice.

    Sa Calobra is simply part of Mallorca. If only there wasn't so much car and bus traffic, which is very annoying, especially on the descent. Uphill is very relaxed, it is not particularly steep like in the Alps. Nice hairpins and an Omega like on the bobsleigh run.

    Grandiose downhill, which does not give rise to the very big downhill feeling when too much traffic. It is worthwhile, anyway, to take your head up too.

    Beautiful breathtaking serpentine! Every cyclist in Mallorca should have driven her at least once! Ideally, as early as possible, you will not regret getting up early! From about 10 clock is the traffic so large that you can not leave unhindered. I just say tin vials ...

    Sa Calobra beach is one of the most photographed playas in Mallorca. It is located on the Tramuntana coast and can be reached either via the serpentine road between Sóller and Pollença, or by hiking through the Torrent de Parreis.

    Do not miss this beautiful and special place that actually awakens interest for the cyclists due to the descent, about 10-12 km, and the subsequent climb. The special feature is, who drives down the path again, there is no way around it.

    Sa Calobra is where the Tramuntana mountain range, which dominates the north and west of Mallorca, meets the sea. Getting there is not easy, as first you must climb and then enjoy the swooping descent into the port hole. Locals have many nicknames for the climb: 'La Cobra', 'The Knot', 'The Neck Tie' or simply just 'The Hole'.

    Sa Calobra is part of our Montagnes du Monde series, head over to and claim your badge if you rode this classic.
