ABOUT SOLLER

A typical old Mediterranean town, set in a lush valley of orange groves between the mountains and the sea, Soller is made up of narrow streets lined with traditional style residential townhouses with the famous green Mallorcan shutters. The valley is famous for it’s tasty and juicy oranges, and the Soller Red Prawn which you can easily taste in the many cafes, bars, and restaurants around the village the main square, Plaça Constitució. The area comes alive on Saturdays when the local market takes place. Culture vultures come from far and wide to travel to Soller as it is a place rich in history, full of beautiful architecture and museums. It is also a town that hosts many traditional Mallorcan fairs and festivals throughout the year.

Soller lies a couple of miles inland from its port, Port de Soller. There is a vintage tram that runs from the town to the port, which is one of the most famous attractions for tourists in the area. It’s also really easy to travel between Soller and Palma, thanks to a wooden old train, dating back to 1912, that connects the two and travels several times throughout the day through a very scenic countryside route.

In recent years, a few stylish boutique hotels have opened in the area, making Soller a trendy holiday destination amongst some of the island's most affluent visitors.

CYCLING AROUND SOLLER

Being located in the heart of the Tramuntana Mountains, along the NorthWestern Coast of Mallorca, you'll be guaranteed some epic rides and breathtaking scenery with steep walls from the Tramuntana down to sea, charming and picturesque honey-colored stone villages, and terraced slopes with century-old olive trees and grapevines. It does not get much better than this to be honest.

Soller is only 10 Km away from the beautiful Deia and 10 Km more to Valldemossa, and from there you can carry on along the stunning SW coast and through the stunning towns of Banyalbufar and Estellencs all the way to Andratx, or you can also head inland towards Esporles, Galilea and Calvia. To the NorthEast you can ride up to the longest sustained climb on the island (14 Km at 6%) up to Monnaber Tunnel, referred as the Puigmajor by local cyclists, and over to Sa Calobra, the most iconic piece of road in Mallorca and bucket list ride for cyclist from around the world. If you go straight inland out of Port de Soller you'll ride up the twisty and photogenic Coll de Soller, from where you can carry on along the foothills of the Tramuntana or also visit the lovely mountain village of Orient.

The one downside being that an easy flat recovery ride after a few days riding is not really an option without taking the shuttle out of the village... Something we can easily organize of course.

OTHER ACTIVITIES

Apart from being a cyclists paradise, the Tramuntana Mountains around Valldemossa, Deia, and Soller are also a great playground for non-cyclists or for that recovery time after your rides. Whether you like to enjoy yourself actively, have some leisure time with friends or family, or enhance your Mallorcan connection with cultural and gastronomic experiences, Deia and its surroundings have it all.

  • Hike the many trails between Valldemossa and Soller, with amazing and remote views of the coast, or reliving the steps of the ancient artist's trail connecting Deia and Soller villages. You can also try some mountain biking along the same trails although they're quite advanced.

  • We could also organize some exhilarating guided activities on the coast like Coasteering, Climbing or Deep Water Soloing, or heading deep into the mountains and do some Canyoning. 

  • Charter a boat for half a day and explore the coast's hidden gems like Sa Foradada, Sa Calobra, Port de Valldemossa, S'Estaca, and Cala Deia.

  • Take a quick walk down to Cala Deia for lunch by the sea at Ca's Patro March.

  • Indulge yourself with a private Yoga class, or a complete health and wellness program in La Residencia's renown spa.

  • On a cultural note you could visit some of the museums in Soller like Can Punera, or the Botanical Garden, Deia's House of Robert Graves is worth a visit, where they've set up a small museum dedicated to his life and work

  • You could easily spend a morning walking around Valldemossa's tiny cobbled streets sprinkled with shops, galleries and cafes, and also visiting the monk's monastery where Frederik Chopin lived for a winter.
