The dry stone route GR221 ‘la ruta de piedra en seco’ is a very popular 135 km, 8 day trek along the mountains on the west side of Mallorca. The pathways along the walk are lined with old cobbled paths, which were originally built to link the village and estates on the mountain range. The route is famous for its landscape of olive trees on terraces with dry-stone walls and runs from Port D’Andratx all the way to Pollenca.
Sóller is situated on Mallorca’s Northwest coast and the town is just 3km from the port. The pretty village lies in a large, fertile, bowl-shaped valley full of orange groves between the mountains and the sea.
You will find cobbled streets and pretty houses within the town and a buzzy town square full of cafes and tapas bars in which to relax and enjoy the mountain views.
The Port of Sóller can be accessed easily from the town, the tram being the most popular method. Here you will find two beaches and a pretty harbour, which many restaurants serving fresh fish caught by the local fishermen.
