Soller by train
One of the most memorable trips for families and kids is to travel to Soller City and the Port of Soller with the timeless Train and Tram of Soller.
The mythical steam train has been running since 1912, running the route between Palma and Sóller, 27.3 km daily and since 1913 the tram route between Sóller and Puerto de Sóller 4.9 km.
The Sóller railway also stands out for the special, attractive route it runs along, overcoming the natural barrier of the Sierra de Alfàbia mountain range which is 2.8 km wide and 496 metres high. To do so, in just seven kilometres, the railway rises up 199 metres with an inclination of 23 millimetres, runs through thirteen longitudinal tunnels ranging in length from 33 to 2,876 metres, crosses over several bridges, the “cinc-ponts” viaduct which has five arches with spans 8 metres high and a great many bends, some with radii below 190 metres.
