Bus

Bus 211 shoots up the Ma11 from Palma to Sóller (€2.65, 30 minutes, up to five daily). Bus 210 takes the long way to/from Palma (€3.90) via Valldemossa (€2.15, 40 to 50 minutes) and Deià (€1.55). A local service connects Sóller with Fornalutx (€1.50, 15 minutes, two to four daily) via Biniaraix.

Car & Motorcycle

When coming from Palma, you have the option of taking the tunnel (€4.95 toll per car and €2 per motorbike, no bicycles) or adding 7km to the trip and taking the mountainous switchbacks up to the pass, with some great views back down towards Palma on the way. If you aim to do that, take the last turn-off for Sóller before the tunnel. For other magnificent views down to Sóller and its splendid valley, take the mountain road from Fornalutx to the Sóller-Port de Sóller road. If taking the tunnel, make sure you get into the right lane if you want to pay with cash. There are handy petrol stations on either side of the road just before the tunnel on the Palma side.

Train

The train journey from Palma to Sóller is a highlight.

Tram

Sóller's antique open-sided trams run to Port de Sóller on the coast and back. They depart from outside the train station but also stop at the northwest corner of Plaça de la Constitució on the way to the Port. Generally, they run from Sóller to Port de Sóller every 30 minutes from 8am to 8.30pm and in the other direction from 8.30am to 9pm (pick up a timetable from the tourist office or visit the station).
