Easy to follow cycle way
Sep 2019
Mainly gravel cycle way on old railway, total length is 29km, be wary of the section heading to arta from son servera it is a steady incline all the way, recommend bike with off road tyres some section have big loose gravel, take plenty of water too, cafes are available at either end and in the middle but you have to leave the route and head into the towns to ring them.

Excellent Cycle Route
Aug 2019 • Couples
Enjoyable route from Manacor to Arta and back. Immaculate maintenance and easy to follow. Hired bikes from Bicis Verdes in Manacor who were very good. Thoroughly recommend the experience.

Well on track...
May 2019 • Friends
Level walk of up to 20 miles away from traffic and with a great variety of scenery. We came across the Via Verde by chance whilst staying in Arta on a walking holiday. We took the local bus from Arta to Manacor (€2.90 single) and walked back the entire 29kms. The bus stop in the centre of Manacor is roughly 1 mile from the start of the Via Verde on the edge of town. The surface is well made (on a former railway track bed) and makes for easy walking. The route is popular with both walkers and cyclists and passes through or near to four communities between Manacor and Arta and so there is no need to carry much more than water and snacks. There are regular information boards and distance makers every km, so it is easy to keep track of your progress. We chose to walk the route end to end but it would be possible to break the walk down using public transport. By the time we had taken short diverrsions for coffee about 8kms in and lunch (Son Servera) at 19kms, we totalled closer to 34km or 21 miles according to our trackers.

The route is mostly in the open with some short stretches in cuttings and so affords splendid views of changing scenery. The sides have been planted with young trees which in a couple of years will offer welcome shade. We did the walk in a most enjoyable 18 degrees but could imagine that in warmer weather it would be a lot more tiring as you are exposed to the sun for several hours. We started walking just after 10am and finished in Arta at 6pm, wonderful use of a day!

Pity we were on foot

This looks like a brilliant off-road route to explore on a bike. Unfortunately we were on foot and could only go a fairly short distance.

First bicycle ride for years
Dec 2017 • Couples
Decided to try a bike again. Last time was two years ago but before that it had been 40 years. The Via Verde is the ideal place for those that aren't experienced because there is no traffic. Was due to be where the train was going to be but they ran out of money! Decided on an electric bike because although going from Arta to Son Servera is ok coming back is uphill for a good bit of the way. Only walkers and bikers so a really good trip (even although I fell off twice!)

Via verde,lovely, peaceful ride in the Mallorcan countryside
Feb 2017 • Couples
My husband & I were in Majorca mid February.We were told about the Via Verde by the man sat next to us on the plane,we went on a Friday starting in Manacor as I thought the weekend would be busy, unfortunately the bike hire shop, next to the Euroski was not open even though it said it was open on the website.We found a great bike shop on the main road called Bici Sancho were we hired the bikes at 14€ each.The cycle track was really smooth.We cycled as far as Son Severa about 20kms & back ( of course!) we didn't go all the way to Arta as we didn't leave until early afternoon so ran out of time before it got dark! While in Son Severa we lost the track & followed a red path next to the pavement,a worthwhile mistake as it lead us to a fantastic cafe called Cafe Espresso.Food was excellent & best of all, really cheap!! I had a Caesar salad, which was delicious for 4-50€!! The coffees were less than 2€ . Fully recommend this place. All in all, a fab day!

easy cycle on traffic free old railway line
Sep 2016 • Couples
Cycled to San Salvador (saw the open roof cathedral of Gaudi's). Then left cycle way to go to beach but all the beaches here are very built up. rejoined cycle way at san llorenc after visiting porto cristo. Great facility since I hate traffic whizzing past.

Great pathway for walking or cycling
Aug 2016 • Couples
We did some walking and cycling on this green way path. It is great as you are away from road traffic and journeying through the beautiful Mallorcan country side. It is ideal fro famiilies with young kids. Very well marked with signs. Bikes can be rented directly at the beginning of the pathway in Arta.

Via Verde - wonderful ride!
Aug 2016 • Family
The Mallorcans have done this really well: utilised a resource that had fallen into disrepair, ensured that it is easily accessible via transport links and gone to the trouble of replanting the route. The Via Verde was a wonderful day out riding for our family. We caught the bus from Alcudia to Arta, which stops right outside the old railways station. Picked up our hire bikes from the station and we were away - 4 good bikes, helmets, plan, repair kit. The route has been very well done - it is for hikers, cyclists and horse riders and is level and safe. You get to see other parts of the island that otherwise would go completely unnoticed. Orchards, vineyards, the way of life was visible and we felt privileged to be able to peek in on it. The views to the coast were stunning and the tunnels added a nice (safe) touch. We arrived back exhausted, dust covered and very hungry, having thoroughly enjoyed the day. We went from Arta to Cala Millor and onto Sant Llorenc - you can go further to Manacor, We stopped in a small village and enjoyed ice cold drinks at a local bar, before turning round and making our way back. It felt lovely and safe and I thoroughly recommend it to families who are a little less comfortable with taking their kids on the roads of Mallorca on bikes. You do cross some roads, but these are clearly signposted. This is an absolute cracker of a day. 4 bikes and kit cost 60 euros for the day and it was a grand day out! Take plenty of drinks with you - it's thirsty work.
