Sóller, Mallorca

The Basics

Sóller is about a 15-minute drive from the coast, and you can easily see the highlights of the town—including the botanic garden and Saint Bartholomew Church—in a single day. An overnight stay gives you the chance to venture on foot or by bike into the mountains or explore the Port de Sóller. Full-day tours of Mallorca’s northern reaches usually stop by Sóller along with attractions like the Canyon de la Calobra and Valldemossa.

How to Get There

Situated in the northwest of the island of Mallorca, Sóller is 16 miles (26 kilometers) from Palma. While you can get to Sóller by shuttle, taxi, or rental car, catch the vintage Palma to Sóller (Ferrocarril de Sóller) train—which normally runs from April to October—for a journey almost as interesting as the destination.

Day Trips from Palma de Mallorca

Palma is a typical base for travelers in Mallorca, as you can get to most points on the island from the capital in just one day. Swap Palma’s hustle and bustle for a visit to Mallorcan wine country in Binissalem; seek sanctuary in Lluc; or soak up the sights in Valldemossa. Party animals can head about a half hour west to Magaluf, known for its after-dark appeal.
