Soller Railway Tips (10)

Palma to Soller by Vintage Train

Since 1912 this vintage train has covered the route from Palma to Soller.The journey takes around 1 hour and takes you through several tunnels through the Sierra de Tramuntana,one of which is 3 kms long.After this you will reach the station of Mirador Pujol de'n Banya where the train stops for about 5 minutes for a photo opportunity.
Once you arrive in Soller you can then take the electric tram for the 5 km trip down through the town and along the waters edge to Port de Soller.The tram cars are ex San Francisco rolling stock from the 1930s.

Soller train

Loved this train, the views of the island that you might otherwise not see are lovely. The train takes you through the mountain range and on the way small towns and farms come into view. Lovely rows and rows of fruit trees (all in blossom) beautiful houses and scenery all the way and then you come to the most picturesque town of Soller. A definite 10/10 for this activity.

Soller railway

Something I really want to do on our next visit to Majorca. We did see the railway station in Palma and from here you can take an old vintage electric train to Soller.
I understand it is cash only and the fare is 10 e single or 17e return.
There are just 7 departures north per day and only 5 south so time your journey carefully.

BY Train

If you want to go from Palma to Soller there is an amazing way to go: by a traditional train, it seems that is like 100 years ago. It is an unforgettable trip along several tunnels. The view along the way is astonishing. You must try for sure!

A voyage to the past, Soller Train

Go to Soller using this old wooden train. It crosses 13 tunnels, one of them 3 km long and also it goes trough beatifull valleys. Enjoy the views and in Soller walk trough the town.

The train departs from Palma each 1 and a half hour. The first one is at 8am. Last one to Palma from Soller departs at 7pm. On holydays, May, June, October it has another depart at 7:35pm.

The cost is 6 euros to Soller, 11 if U buy a two way ticket. My advice, take it from Palma and return in the bus.

Soller Railway

An unforgetable trip. The Soller Railway has linked the city of Palma to the town of Soller since 1912 and still retains its original character. During the journey, you will see the Mediterranean landscape of the Tramutana Mountain Range.

By plain - there are a lot of airlines flying to Palma De Mallorca. From Barcelona is only 40min flight.
You stay in the city center - it is easy to get arround by bus.
Definetely you must use the Soller Railway! which is linked from Palma city to Soller town, and the railway operates since 192 and still retains its original character!! During your journey - the tarin offers you a series of impressions which can be only be percieved from the iron railway tracks - beautiful views!! must try! Don;t go on rush hours as it will be full train and you won't enjoy your trip...

super cool old movie feeling

I was staying in Port de soller. First i took a tram like San Fransisco style and then the very cool old train to Palma with amazing views. The only disadvantage was the timetable.
