In Majorca there is a complete Island tour, which takes you through the lovely sights seeing train, to Soller, from there, in a boat to Sa calobra, and from then on a bus through the Tramuntana Sierra,
A complete experience through Soller the Mountains and the sea. this tour offer is complete.
I booked this journey on an advanced activity booking /ticket guide for Mallorca, Sunbonoo and it was great.
No holiday to Mallorca would be complete without a trip to the beach, though it wasn't until our fourth and last day on the island that we managed a visit. We went to Port de Soller, a small beachside village on the north of Mallorca, a few kilometres north of Soller.
Port de Soller is a relaxed place compared to other beach resorts and towns in Mallorca. The Tramuntana mountains rise almost directly behind the town providing a great backdrop and nice views. Though the weather was hot during our May visit the water was still quite chilly so we didn't stay in too long.
Alongside the beach is a promenade containing plenty of cafes, restaurants and shops. The tram from Soller also passes along this way, and without your own transport, is the best way to get back to Soller.
Soller is very much on the tourist circuit but is nevertheless one of the nicest places to visit in Mallorca. It's location is perfect, surrounded by mountains on 3 sides, with the sea and the beach of Port de Soller only a couple of kilometres away to the south.
It's the main town in northern Mallorca and well connected to Palma via the famous train, a direct tunnel under the mountains, and a more scenic, winding road up through the mountains.
We stayed for only one night in Soller, but it's such a relaxing and tranquil place that you could easily base yourself here for a week. There aren't too many sights in the town; instead of typical tourist sights like museums, it's more the atmosphere that makes Soller such an attractive place. That said, there is an excellent exhibition near the train station featuring works by Picasso and by local artist Joan Miro.
The church is the most attractive building in the town and it lies on the popular, crowded main square where there are cafes and restaurants aplenty, and even the odd tram passing through.
Bar - Restuarant on main road through Soller (on outskirts, but ideal if you're walking GR221. Soller to Deia, or Soller to Port Soller) - next to gas station, and bus stop. There is a non-touristy eatery, it closes at five - its trade seems to rest upon lunchtime). I was the only foreigner there (9 June 2006). Excellent value, three course lunch with drink for E7.50. You may need to wait a few minutes for a table as it's very popular (because it's such good value). They speak languages other than mallorquin or castilian.

Update from last visit January 2008. Menu now 8.50 (10 on Saturdays), cuisine no longer exclusively Mallorcan, themed T-shirts, lasagne. It's still good value, but more touristy, and not as nice and traditional as it was.
It is about half an hour drive from Palma airport. Bus, railway and tram services have good connections to Soller town, the northwest coast of the island. We did it from Sa Calobra with a ferry boat enjoying the finest sceneries of the sourrounding Serra de Traumuntana range.
A must for every island visitor. A ride in an "Old Timer built in the 19th century from Palma to Soller and vice versa. The train has retained its original character and has been the point of interest for enthusiastic visitors.The railway takes you through the thirteen tunnels of SERRA TRAUMUNTANA . The ride takes about an hour.
This seems to be a must do for tourists judging by the amount of passengers on this wooden train from Palma to Soller The line opened in 1920 and is a great day out. In Soller you transfer to a wooden Tram to take you down to Port Soller.I was there in March and it was busy,a bit of advice is travel early in the day. It is possible to return to Palma by bus.Soller town is interesting but i think Port Soller is worth your longer time.The journey Palma to Soller is 16 miles and takes about an hour.This bygone age of travel is well worth it.In Palma the Soller Train station is in Placa Espanya next to the TIB new underground rail station.
Sóller is an attractive town on Majorca’s north-west Coast. Situated some 3 Km. inland, from its port, 'Port de Sóller', the town lies in a large, fertile, bowl-shaped valley. Sóller shares its valley with the village of Fornalutx and the hamlet of Biniaraix, the combined population is around 12,000, and the valley is famous for its orange groves and terraces of ancient olive trees. The village of Deià is just down the coast. Sóller and the port are about half an hour's drive from Palma Airport, and have good connections with railway, tram and bus services. The valley and its surrounding mountain range, the 'Serra de Tramuntana', is a favourite destination for people from all over the world, especially those who enjoy walking, nature, ecotourism, swimming or simply a peaceful rest away from the hustle and bustle of the better-known tourist traps.
Takes everyone by surprise,hiding at the foot of the hills huddeled around its natural harbour and pretty restaurants.One of the most beautiful parts of Majorca.Parts of the port are really old.I stayed at hotel With all charm of Majorcan country mansion just 100 metres away from the beach.
Is a small town in a spectacular setting.Is a really a very special place,the town engaged between montains.The village is very isolated.A 1912 wooden train links Palma to Soller rattling through citrus orchards and 13 tunnels.
