We took a pleasant walk to the station from the beach. It was pretty busy to the point on the way back I gave up my seat for a senior lady which actually allowed me to stand at the back of the last carriage all the way back. Amazing views all the way. This trip is worth it just for... More

Travelled on this lovely old fashioned electric train from Palma to Soller on the west coast of Mallorca. Saw some beautiful countryside and quaint villages. Got off the train and boarded a tram which took us to the Port of Soller, lovely picturesque port on the west coast. Thoroughly recommend taking this train, it cost us 30 euros each return... More

Train is beautiful and is very nice and maintained inside. It's worth to make the trip to Soller from Palma. Country is beautiful and you travel close to lemon trees and sometimes the montains. However, the travel is very long, more than one hour, whilst the distance is only 27 kms ! I would recommend to do it only one... More

I had wanted to take this train journey for so many years - my parents did the trip in the 70s and I have fond memories of their cine camera films. Perhaps my expectations were higher than usual. The day started badly and we arrived in Palma having missed the earlier train by seconds so booked tickets for the 12.15... More

I loved the 1-hour train ride! The views were beautiful, and the historical train made the trip feel like we were traveling in time. On the way we stopped once just to take pictures, and I took some great pics from the viewpoint! One way ticket costs 16€, and a return ticket is 21€ for an adult. We spent great... More

The train was pleasant enough, with a lovely stop to enjoy the views of Soller. However, there are a lot of tunnels and places where the banking prevents views. It is also quite expensive, and restricted returns may mean that you have to spend up to six hours in Soller which is far too long. Much better is the non-express... More

Yes it does get busy but is well worth the effort. I agree with most of the comments from the British reviewers. If you are boarding in Palma get as near to the front of the queue on the platform as possible but while the Germans are getting in the first few carriages keep walking briskly to the very front...

We arrived and the queue was very, very long to buy tickets. It took us over an hour. You had to prebook the return and some options had sold out already. I suggest you get there early. There is a toilet in the station and the platform was heaving with people. The train itself was well maintained, try and get... More

Good train trip to soller on an old train.we caught the first train there and the last one back. which I would recommend so you get plenty of time in soller then to look around. Trains get very busy so get to station early to book tickets and get seats.
