Port de Soller and Soller, Mallorca

Nestled between the coast and the mountains, these two small towns, just a stone's throw from each other, are ideally placed as a cycling base. Unlike other towns on the island such as Port de Pollença there aren't any flat rides available, but it is a much quieter base for your riding - particularly once all the beach holidaymakers begin to arrive in the spring and summer months.

Where to Ride?

The island is dotted with great routes. The drivers are cycle friendly, and the roads are butter smooth. Sa Calobra, Puig Major, and the Col de Soller are all reachable in day rides from this area. However our favorite local ride is the Coll d'Orient - quiet snaking climb east of Bunyola.

Where to Stay?

Port de Soller is a little more expensive than Soller, but you have the amazing bay on your doorstep. Both are linked by a tram, and to get between both places is easy. Soller has more going on, and can be busier, being the regional centre. There is a great choice of bike friendly hotels here. Contact us for our personal recommendations.

Where to Eat?

Choose any of the restaurants along the bay of Port de Soller for a great meal with a view.  

What to do, other than ride?

Other than cycling and spending time on the beach, walking, snorkeling, paddle boarding and boat-based activities are all popular.

What Climb not to miss?

Don't miss climbing the highest point on the Island of Mallorca, Puig Major

What you didn't know about Soller?

On 4th October, 1913 Mallorca’s first electric tram line was inaugurated, running between Sóller and the Port of Sóller, the outstanding feature of it is the iron bridge over the Torrent. The three motor trams, numbered 1 to 3, and their trailers 5 and 6 are the originals, dating from 1912!
