Winter sports in Mallorca: new facilities, ideas and events

ONE of the best things about Mallorca’s Mediterranean winter is the fact that you can enjoy so many outdoor activities in a mild and generally sunny climate. In 2011 the island has plenty of suggestions for the winter visitor plus some new activities from classic car tours to rugby, dancing, golf and ballooning.

New Classic Car Tours

The Mallorca Driving Association, which has been organising the Isla de Mallorca Classic Car Rally since 2005, will now launch Classic Car Excursions.  Visitors can experience driving around the island in true style in one of 12 classic cars.

If several visitors participate in the excursion then they can swop cars throughout the day and vary their classic car experience. Furthermore, enjoying driving in Mallorca can be enhanced by adding a helicopter flight or boat excursion. Information:

Now in its seventh year, this event marks the first dry season rally in the European calendar. Over 80 classic cars will participate from all over Europe with some prestigious classic car drivers including Michael Stoschek, winner of the European championship and John Sheldon winner of the Tour de España.

The 14 stages of the rally will take the competitors through the island’s stunning and challenging mountain and coastal scenery.  Information and registration:
