Our starting point for this excursion is the Font des Noguer, located just beyond the Cuber reservoir, 30 minutes drive from Soller.
For the first 30 minutes we follow the water channel that feeds the reservoir before entering woodland and starting our gradual ascent up through the valley to the Coll des Prat.
We lunch on the Coll, below the towering peaks of Massanella. On a clear day the peninsulas of Alcudia and Formentor stand out before us.
From the Coll des Prat we descend and reascend to the second peak of the day, the Coll de Telegraf at 1126m.
There are several snow pits and snow houses of interest to see in this area which were used to store snow to use as ice in the hotter summer months.
Soon after we come across the recently renovated Ses Voltes trail, which was the old pilgrims path which leads us directly to the Lluc Monastery.
Assuming we have time, you will be able to visit the Monastery and stop for a refreshment at one of the cafes.
Price: 32€ per person, cash only, based on a minimum of four people, maximum 8.
Price includes private transport from Soller and the port of Soller to the trailhead and return (30 minute drive), as well as the public bus from Lluc back to our vehicle in the afternoon.
