Soller, a walking paradise on Mallorca
Sóller is located in the northwest region of Mallorca, about three kilometers from the coast in the majestic Tramuntana Mountains.
The beautifully picturesque hillsides surrounding Sóller provide richly fertile soil that is perfect for the cultivation of orange, almond and figs trees.
Sóller is definitely one of the most popular towns for those of us that enjoy medium level hikes with amazing views and vistas. As soon as you head out of Sóller town via Carrer de sa Lluna and begin ascending up into the surrounding Alfabia mountains, you will almost immediately begin to enjoy truly spectacular views. And the scenery will only get better and better!
Though sometimes a bit steep, most hikes here will take you along wide trails that are at a level that allows you to enjoy the surrounding nature and panoramas without having to focus entirely on your steps on the ground below.
Sóller is the best base for your hiking adventure on Mallorca. Though many of the town’s hotels have a swimming pool, if you’re there in the summer season (June-September) when it can get really hot, an alternative choice is staying along the coast in nearby Port de Sóller where you can combine your hikes with cooling off in the sea, paddling canoe or Stand up Paddling.
Both Sóller and Port de Sóller have plenty of restaurants, bars and small supermarkets (Mercado) and getting between the two is easily achieved via the old charming tram or, if you feel like hiking the distance on foot (10k). It’s a nice hike on the country side.
