Tramuntana and west coast

This tour is one of the most exciting routes in Mallorca. We start in Palma and head towards Valldemossa and Deià, our destination being the picturesque villages of Sóller and its romantic harbour Port de Sóller. From there we drive to Bunyola, stop in Santa Maria del Camí and then return to Palma.




A market is held every Saturday on the main street of the village, shaded by London planes. Small cafés invite you to enter and take a relaxing break; the perfect place to observe the hustle and bustle of the market.


This idyllic village has become one of the most popular spots of the Tramuntana mountain range. Even so, Valldemossa still retains its unique atmosphere and is a must for culture, history and music lovers. The highlight: the former Carthusian monastery Cartuja de Valldemossa, where composer Frédéric Chopin and writer George Sand spent their legendary, cold “Winter in Mallorca” in the 19th C. Allegedly, Chopin was inspired by the bad weather when he created his famous Raindrop Prelude. You can still visit the cell where both artists stayed, as well as the charterhouse gardens. Valldemossa also has numerous shops, cafés and restaurants. Its specialty: the typical Coca de patata, which is said to be the best on the island.


Deià is an artists’ village renowned for its selection of tiny shops, fantastic cuisine and charming hotels. Its picturesque atmosphere still attracts the presence of many celebrities. An excursion up the footpath to the church, situated high above the village, is well worth the effort; the panoramic views are fantastic. In summer we recommend a visit to its small cove for a refreshing dip – and a cool drink in the local bar. Let’s continue along the Ma-10, winding coastal road and head for Sóller.


This famous village is located in the “orange valley“ and is the destination of the “Red Flash”, the legendary narrow-gauge railway that has connected Palma with the other side of the Tramuntana mountains for over 100 years. Formerly, the region of Sóller was also called the golden valley, not due to its high-quality citrus fruits, but for its numerous olive groves and the olive oil. A proof of the former wealth of its citizens is the magnificent architecture of their houses.  Our tip: The tastiest and most authentic icecream on the island. Try the orange or lemon variety! Icecream parlour in Sóller and Port de Sóller.  Gelat de Sóller.

Port de Sóller

A trip on the historic tram to the Port de Sóller. The numerous restaurants and cafés envelop visitors in the hustle and bustle of the port and the boulevard. There are boat trips from the port to Sa Calobra and the famous cove of the Torrent de Pareis, several times a day.

Back to Palma

When heading for Palma from Sóller you can either take the winding mountain pass or the tunnel.

Santa Maria del Camí

Santa Maria del Camí is one of the most important wine- growing regions of the island. Stop off in Santa Maria del Camí, Consell or Binissalem and discover the small wineries, often located in courtyards of town houses. Every September, the traditional grape harvest festival is held in Binissalem. Santa Maria has become one of the major reference points for wine lovers in Mallorca due to its vineyards, variety and quality of its wineries; ranging from large wineries such as Macià Batle to smaller making organic wines using PGI Mallorca or Denomination of Origin Binissalem local varieties and offering tours of their facilities and wine tastings. Seven of these wineries form the Associació de Cellers de Santa Maria, promoter of own-brand wines or novelties such as the original vi taronja (orange wine). However, Santa Maria is much more .

Added to this is its attractive commercial offer, including one of the only remaining places to buy the authentic teles de llengües, Artesania Textil Bujosa, ceramic craft workshops, boutiques with unique accessories, decoration, furniture, kitchenware …
