WALKING FROM PUERTO DE SOLLER

Great walks from a remote and attractive part of Majorca

Soak up the Spanish atmosphere and walk the remote paths of the North West coast of Majorca. Under the watchful gaze of the Sierra de Tramuntana, make your way through lush, fertile land cultivated with olive, carob and fig groves and smell the sweet tang of citrus orchards. Follow an old pilgrim route as you walk down the Es Barranc Gorge or climb the heights of l’Ofre on our higher grade option.

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 dramatic 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.

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 (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 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.

 



WALKING GRADES


Grade 4 walks are either half or full days, with walks of approximately 3 or 5 hours at a moderate pace over hilly terrain. Expect ascents and descents of up to 600m. Grade 7 walks are designed to be challenging with plenty of ascent and descent over rough and steep ground, so a steady foot and a good head for heights are advisable. There will normally be between 800 - 1000m of ascent and descent in a day and you will be walking for up to 7 hours.

  • Accommodation

    he three-star Hotel Marina, located just a stone’s throw from the sea has been tastefully refurbished over the winter in the Majorcan style. Many of our rooms will be in the newly refurbished Mini Marina, adjacent to the main hotel building. You might also like to pamper yourself in the wellness and spa centre after a day’s walk (at extra cost locally).

    Hotel Marina

    The family run Hotel Marina is situated in front of a small beach in a pedestrianised area. Its splendid terrace makes an ideal setting for a lovely relaxed breakfast with magnificent views of the bay. At night, surrounded by candlelight, this terrace provides the perfect location for a night of gentle music and conversation. The completely renovated hotel has Wi-Fi, reception area, bar and a lounge with satellite television and video.

    Note: As the Hotel Marina is in a pedestrian area you will need to be able to carry your luggage a short distance to the hotel as the coach will not be able to stop directly outside. Due to the layout of the hotel, group accommodation may be widely spread throughout the complex. 

    ** During busy periods, some of the rooms may be situated in the annexe next to the hotel and these rooms will not have mountain or sea views.
