Walking from Puerto de SollerGreat walks from a remote and attractive part of Majorca.
In the autumn and spring, avoiding the bustle of the hottest summer months, Puerto de Soller is an ideal base for our style of walking holiday.
The picturesque coastal port of Puerto de Soller lies in a bay where the mountains meet the sea. Despite being a popular resort with tourists, Puerto de Soller is an unassuming place and retains much of its local character, resulting in a relaxed and gentle atmosphere. Linked to the main town of Soller by a three mile tramway, it is a good starting point for walks along the coast and into the mountains where the views are magnificent.
We’ll walk both on the coast and in the mountainous hinterland. This area of Majorca offers a great variety of scenery and difficulty of terrain.
The landlocked bay is like a placid lake, and our hotel is on the sea front. We can see Puig Mayor (1400m) and Teix, the two highest peaks of the west coast Sierra de Tramuntana range. These mountains, which largely separate the Soller area from the rest of Majorca, and their foothills provide some wonderful walking, such as the route which follows an old Pilgrims’ Way; passing through olive groves and quaint farmsteads, it is particularly beautiful. Inland, we can visit the small town of Soller. Connected to its coastal namesake by an ancient tramway, this attractive town maintains a traditional Spanish feel.
The beautiful landscapes and Spanish atmosphere are there to be enjoyed and we explore the mountains, villages and coast on good paths and tracks.
