Trekking

Sóller is located in the middle of the Tramuntana Range, making it an ideal location from which to discover the valley as well as the surrounding mountains. Soller’s marvelous location makes possible everything from easy walks through orange orchards in the valley and by the sea, to more adventurous hikes among the highest peaks on the island.  Here we give you a brief introduction to some of the hiking you can practice without a guide. We also recommend buying one of the many available guidebooks on Tramuntana’s hiking trails as well as getting the latest information from the Tourism Information Centre in Soller. 

From Soller, though Biniaraix to Fornalutx

This excursion is a classic among locals. It’s an easy walk, perfect for getting to know the Sóller valley. We recommend it as a starting walk for your holiday. It begins on a flat path which goes almost all the way to Biniaraix and is surrounded by orange and lemon orchards with the odd stone house. It’s worth spending a little time visiting the small and picturesque village of Biniaraix, which will give you the feeling of having gone back in time.  A must-see is the old stone wash house on the way out of the village on the road to Fornalutx. On your way to Fornalutx, you will be treated to a majestic view of Tramuntana Peak on the gently rising path. The surrounding fields are covered with orange trees and stone walls. Once you reach Fornalutx, you can stop to enjoy some tapas and a glass of wine in the main square and observe the village life passing by.

From Sóller to Deià

You’ll leave Sóller behind and pass through orange and lemon orchards while walking on the old road to Deià. The path will begin to climb at Son Mico and Can Prohom before revealing the gorgeous view of the valley beneath you. You’ll continue your walk through breathtaking forest before enjoying the view of the coastline, which you’ll follow all the way to the village of Deià. Once there, you can enjoy the beach or stroll through the peaceful streets. From Deià, you can return to Sóller by public transport.

Valldemossa

This walks begins and ends in the wonderful village of Valldemossa. You’ll leave the village behind, taking a road which leads to Cairats Valley. Once you reach the top of the valley you’ll take a stone path from which, after a while, you’ll see the northern part of Sóller on the horizon before reaching the Caragoli Peak at a height of around 1000 meters. From this point you’ll make the descent to Valldemossa through an attractive forested area. 

Biniaraix Precipice

You’ll leave Biniaraix behind on a zigzag path, which leads you up the precipice. Once you reach the top you’ll feel it was worth the effort when you see the panorama of the Sóller Valley spread against the sparkling backdrop of the sea. From here, the trail descends all the way back to Sóller.

From Valldemossa to D'es Teix Peak

You’ll start the walk in Valldemossa and head towards the Cairats Valley and through the Son Moragues Estate before reaching the Des Cairats shelter.  The path then climbs to Des Teix Peak, which is over 1000 metres high, and from which you will have a breathtaking view of peaks like Mayor or Massanella, among others. From here the trail descends back to Valldemossa.
