Soller Train

Because we live on the island of Mallorca for many months over the summer period, we are often asked about recommendations for wedding guests on things to do on the island.

On our list of tourist experiences is the train which travels from Palma de Mallorca to Soller, by narrow gauge. The train and carriages, which chug along it, are well maintained. Original…wooden and a delight. The line runs through orchards, growing lemons and oranges, leading to the dramatic mountainous Tramuntana range. Beyond them is the beautiful town of Soller, in the north of the island.

Quite often guests who arrive on the island have several days, before and after the wedding day, to explore the island. There are so many things to do here on Mallorca. This journey however, tops our list of recommendations. It is a memorable journey you’re unlikely to forget. Something which is quite unique.

The journey leads to the mountains, but not before the thirty minute ride which cuts through the landscape to the south. The train eventually climbs, where you’ll experience long tunnels, briefly revealing daylight and the mountainous landscape before being hidden again. Eventually you’ll see the bright Mediterranean light and the train rolls into Soller where you can explore the ancient streets, galleries and cafes of one the top destination towns of Mallorca.

After several hours wandering through Soller, you may decide to head to the coast. Port Soller is a short distance and you can reach this on board the tram. The tram is also narrow gauge, wooden and just as delightful a journey as the train. Here I would recommend eating by the seashore. Be prepared to take many photographs! Whether you are an amateur snapper or professional photographer, the landscape is simply breathtaking and a day you’ll love to remember.
