Walking from Puerto de Soller

Great walks from a remote and attractive part of Majorca.
Overview

The mild, dry climate of Majorca makes the island ideal for walking during much of the year. The north-west coast, one of the most picturesque in the western Mediterranean, runs parallel to a range of mountains stretching from San Telmo in the west to the Cabo de Formentor in the east. Below the jagged summits, the upper slopes are terraced and cultivated with olive, carob and fig; on the lower slops are the huertas, small citrus orchards irrigated by a host of narrow canals.

In the spring and autumn, avoiding the bustle of the hottest summer months, Puerto de Soller is an ideal base in every way for our style of walking holiday.

The picturesque coastal port of Puerto de Soller lies on a lagoon where the mountains meet the sea. Despite being a popular resort with tourists, Puerto de Soller is an unassuming and relaxed place and retains much of its local character. 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.

From our resort we can see Puig Mayor (1,400m) 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 gentler foothills, provide some wonderful walking. Walking inland, passing through olive groves and quaint farmsteads, we can also visit the small town of Soller. Connected to its coastal namesake by a three mile 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.
