This excursion takes you through the coast and the mountains of the northern peninsula and is a great way to see the best nature in Mallorca. Moreover, the peninsula La Victoria is considered one of the most beautiful spots on the island because of its unspoilt nature and the beautiful landscapes. After the hike you can enter a cave once used by smugglers. This hike is great for both beginners and experts and takes you through an area declared as a “Natural Area of Special Interest”.
The route will begin at the Railway Station, located at Plaça Espanya, 6. The building housing Sóller train station was the old 17th century fortified house of Can Mayol. Above the entrance arch of the façade, a console displays the date of 1606. It was later converted into a hotel and eventually, at the beginning of the 20th century, into a railway station. The result of the restructuring from 1911-1912 is the art nouveau style preserved in the building, consisting of a series of delicate decorative details on doors, windows, ironwork, platform corbels and the tank in the courtyard, among other places. On leaving the station, to the left, beside the Major water course, you will see before you three examples of the typical railings that border the gardens of many houses in Sóller. Can Penya, Can Isabel and Cas Fideuer display the skilled ironwork of the artisans of the first third of the 20th century. Flowers, rosettes and leaves intertwine in elegant and simple designs. Pines, araucarias (or monkey-puzzle trees) and palms grow in these gardens.
This hike is beautiful and challenging due to its steep incline. Experienced hikers will enjoy walking up the large rocks while enjoying the views of the surrounding peaks. The hike is about 3 hours and does not disappoint upon arriving to the top. Although not the highest peak in Mallorca, you will see a 360 view of greenery, mountains and the sea.

Sa Calobra is situated at 38 kilometres from Sóller, between Morro de sa Vaca and Morro de ses Fel.les and below the Puig Major (1445 metres high), the highest mountain of the Balearic Islands. The highlight of this very small beach with sand, gravel and pebbles comes after the pedestrian tunnel along the steep and abrupt cliffs, from where you can reach the wonderful mouth of the Torrent de Pareis, which has been an inspiration for artists and where there is a choir concert each summer due to the excellent acoustics. This fact explains that the beach is very popular both for local visitors and tourists on the seaway or on a spectacular road with 14 kilometres of curbs, 12 of 180 degrees and one of 360, known as Nus de sa Corbata (the knot of the tie), with 900 metres difference in level.
