Tren Soller also known as Ferrocarril de Sóller is an interurban railway with wooden trains running between the towns of Sóller and Palma in Mallorca with various stops at smaller towns inbetween. Trn Soller is one of the loved attractions in Mallorca. This train journey takes tourists through stunning scenic views, viaducts, bridges, and 13 tunnels.
Offering view to real Mallorca, Tren Soller leaves from central Palma, just off the Plaza de Espana, making stop at a vantage point for travellers to take the pictures and admire the beautiful views. Not all trains offer such opportunities. You need to refer to the train timetable available at http://trendesoller.com/en/timetable/ to check the timings of these trains.
The Soller railway also stands out for the special, attractive route it runs along, overcoming the natural barrier of the Sierra de Alfàbia mountain range which is 2.8 km wide and 496 metres high. To do so, in just seven kilometres, the railway rises up 199 metres with an inclination of 23 millimetres, runs through 13 longitudinal tunnels ranging in length from 33 to 2,876 metres, crosses over several bridges, the “cinc-ponts” viaduct which has five arches with spans 8 metres high and a great many bends, some with radii below 190 metres.
The town of Soller offers old town ambience, cafe culture and amzing architecture. People here are the sweetest. Their hospitability will make your day. Not only the pretty landscape but the sweet smell of the orange blossom and the penetrating aroma of the sea will amaze you too.
Here you can also experience a rickety tram to the Port de Soller. It is used both for tourists and for the Sollerics (locals) to enjoy the beautiful route from the center of Sóller to the Port. The tickets for the Tram unlike the ones for the Train are acquired on board unless you have purchased Pack ticket (Train+Tram).
Available offline on the same day of the journey. It is recommended to be in the station between 40 and 60 minuts before the train departure to avoid any issue. At the time you acquire your ticket in the Main Station of Palma you will have to decide at what time you want to come back. Credit nor debit cards are not accepted.
