I love old trains and this trip from Palma to Soller and back satisfied my enjoyment of old trains. The exploration of Soller was interesting, but I must say the focus , for me, was the trip.

From november 7 2016 until februari 5 2017 the Ferrocarril de Soller will close the line between Palma and Soller to make maintenance works in the railway line. They propose a busline instead.

We were fortunate to catch the first train from Soller to Palma so really not at all busy and we could enjoy the spectacular mountain scenery and the unique experience of travelling on old wooden carriages pulled by an ancient electric locomotive. Coming back was busier but we did see some other trains that looked very full so my advice... More

Railfan Husband was keen to take the Ferrocarril de Soller during a stop in Mallorca on a cruise ship. We got off ship as early as we could, took a taxi to station (too far to walk), got tickets for first train to Soller. It was old, quaint, and fun. Pretty full with tourists and a few locals using it... More

The train to Sollier [SEW-yare] will appeal to railfans from everywhere. A narrow-gauge line originally built before WW1, it was a major engineering achievement featuring multiple tunnels, tight curves, steep grades, and a major viaduct. Electrified in 1929, the line today features the original rolling stock and the 1929 electric head end equipment. The working yard is at the Sollier... More

The old narrow gauge train from Palma to Soller is well worth doing, even if it is Euros 30 for the round trip (including the tram to Puerto de Soller). I was slightly disappointed with the views and landscapes seen on the trip - not as rugged and forbidding as I'd been led to believe, but lots of olive, lemon... More

The tram is a great way to get to and from Soller to the port; otherwise it is a long walk down from the town. The tram is cute but is always very full. Getting it back up into Soller can be difficult if day-trippers arriving in the port then want to go up into Soller as there are limited... More

We caught the little wooden 10.10 train. Even at the end of October and a Monday morning the train was full. The ride was not the most comfortable as the seats are narrow and hard. Thanks to the recommendations of previous Trip Advisor reviewers we avoided getting the train back and only paid for the train one way. Solller is... More

This is a great way to see the countryside but also meant we saw the beautiful village of Soller and the even more beautiful Port de Soller. The train ride is great and you can sit inside or stand between carriages to get the full experience. We caught the tram from the train station and spent a few hours at... More

We went to Soller by taxi for a short visit and a ride back into Palma for lunch. First, if you go to Soller, plan to stay for a while, it is a wonderful village full of shops, cafes and restaurants. Unfortunately, we planned around the train timings and only had a little more than an hour. Next time, we... More
