Full description

Experience a tour of the historic railway, called the "Red Lightning," between Palma and Sóller. Travel through picturesque landscapes and past orange groves and almond fields through the idyllic town of Bunyola. 

Once in Sóller, continue on your way to incredible Modernist houses. Experience, not just the cultural but the culinary; sample orange crème ice cream at the world-famous "Fet-a-Sóller" cooperative. 

You can choose to take the historic tram from Sóller to Port de Sóller, payable on the day. After an approximately 25-minute ride along the beautiful beach promenade, the train ends in the center of the little city. 

Walk through this idyllic port town, stop in a cozy restaurant, and enjoy a delicious tapas meal. Then, take a comfortable minibus through the breathtaking panoramic stretch of the Tramuntana Mountains to the artists' colony of Deía.

Climb to the highest point of the town and experience a sensational view over the heights of the Tramuntana Mountains, to the picturesque valleys, past the coast, and over the sea. After a lovely walk, enjoy refreshments in the garden of the 5-star luxury hotel, La Residencia.

The hotel houses true treasures; over 300 original pictures by artists like Miro and Picasso adorn the walls and sculptures are dotted across the garden.

Continue to Valdemossa past a mighty forest of holm oaks and wander the idyllic little town. Visit the excellent museum of the painter Josep Coll Bardolet and see the famous Carthusian cloister where Chopin lived and worked.

Enjoy free time to explore on your own amidst the beautiful homes surrounded by Mediterranean gardens full of orange and lemon trees.

The little train & to do is magnificent. The guide Mickael & at the top, very friendly, you can see that he loves his work. He takes the time to explain to us the different places, the different important people in history. The meal in the restaurant was excellent & very filling. The Hôtel du Millionnaire Louis Vuitton & d'une Merveille is a feast for the eyes..... I recommend this excursion.

Nach Soller an sich muss ich nicht noch einmal hin, total überlaufen der Ort. Die Fahrt an sich dorthin ist aber superschön. Einfach auch sehr angenehm, dass der Guide die Tickets besorgt und man nicht selbst anstehen muss. Nach Port de Soller wäre ich lieber mit dem Auto weitergefahren als mit der übervollen Straßenbahn. ;-) Wir waren eine superlustige Reisegruppe, und der Guide Michael wusste einfach auf jede unserer Fragen eine Antwort.

There were only two of us and we had a private tour with Maria. She said a lot, but we always had a few minutes to explore the picturesque places like Sóller and Valldemossa ourselves. If you want to see something of the beauty of the island, this tour and heart is for you. It's really worth it!
