A spectacular trip by rail through scenic mountains to a lovely, historic seaside town.
Most people think of excursions out on the island just in terms of driving. Well, since 1912 there's actually been a train that's run continuously from Palma to the town of Sòller, passing through the scenic Tramuntana mountain range to let out at one of the island's most charming and historically significant spots, the town of Soller. The trip takes a bit under an hour and is the perfect way to see two sides of the island - the towering Alfábia Mountains and on the other side the vastness of the Mediterranean. You can hop off, visit the pretty town of Soller, then take the next train down to the port, one of Majorca's very first areas of settlement. A different and altogether lovely experience indeed.
