Sóller is nothing short of magical… with its picturesque mountain views, cozy stone homes with their clay tiled roofs, tantalizing cafes serving up traditional Spanish delights, and an overall fairytale village feel that’ll sweep you off your feet!
If you can’t tell, I absolutely loved visiting Sóller, Spain.
This charming little Spanish village well and truly stole my heart… and then ran away with it, never to be found again. I could have spent days exploring all of the winding roads, local eateries, hiking trails that go into the mountains, and surrounding villages that dot the hillsides.
But alas, my best friend and I were only here for a mere 5 or 6 hours. In this time, we explored and soaked up the magic of Sóller as much as possible!
Take a peek at the Sóller photos I snapped and get inspired to visit this charming village for yourself.

What to Know About Visiting Sóller in Mallorca, Spain
After seeing those beautiful photos of Sóller, are you inspired to visit this charming little village on the island of Mallorca in Spain?
I know I would be! I mean, come on…
How magical and whimsical are the pastel-colored buildings and the beautiful views of the mountains beyond the quaint streets?!
Anyways, to help you plan your trip here, have a read through my helpful Sóller travel tips below.
Where is Sóller on the Island of Mallorca?
Sóller is located on the north west side of Mallorca, about two miles inland from the coastal village of Port de Sóller. This quaint village in Spain is nestled in a lush valley surrounded by the Serra de Tramuntana, also known as the Tramuntana mountain range, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Throughout this region, you’ll find lush groves of orange, grapefruit, and lemon trees, transforming the landscape into a colorful array of oranges, pinks, and yellows. It’s beautiful! And well worth a visit if you are in Mallorca.

How Do You Get to Sóller from Palma?
There are a few ways to get to Sóller from Mallorca’s capital city of Palma. Personally, we traveled to Sóller from Palma by bus, which was quick, easy, and super affordable! However, there are a few others ways to get there. This includes:
You can hop on a vintage train (operated by Ferrocarril de Sóller S.A.) from Palma to Sóller. The old wooden train is direct and takes around one hour each way and it costs €18 for a one-way ticket.
Alternatively, you can book a combination ticket for €32 that includes tickets for both the outward and return ticket from Palma to Sóller, as well as the return ticket for taking the vintage tram from Sóller to Port de Sóller.
While I didn’t experience the train ride to Sóller, this is definitely my top recommendation on how to get from Palma to Sóller! The route goes through stunning scenery and will give you lovely views of the mountain range on Mallorca.
As mentioned above, we took the bus from Palma to Sóller, which is a very easy way to get between the two destinations.
This transportation method takes around 30-40 minutes each way and costs €6 per one-way ticket. You’re going to want to get the 204 bus from Estació Intermodal; the bus will be on the lower level.
If you aren’t interested in going through the trouble of planning transportation and your own day trip from Palma to Sóller, I would recommend booking a guided tour!
Here are a couple I recommend (all include transportation between Palma and Sóller, as well as an educated guide to teach you about the area’s history!):
- Valldemosa and Soller Day Tour with Tram and Bus
- Tramuntana Panorama Tour – Soller, Deiá, Valldemossa
What are the Best Things to Do in Sóller?
In my personal opinion, the best thing to do in Sóller is to simply relax, sip on a refreshing drink, and soak up the Mediterranean atmosphere that will surely captivate you!
However, if you want to fill your Sóller itinerary with additional activities, check out this quick and dirty list of great things to do, sites to see, and attractions in Sóller.
