Easy walk Soller to Deia

This excursion is a perfect introduction for those who are new to hiking in the valley and would like to learn some of its history and experience the surrounding landscape.

Starting from our shop in Port Soller, we head along an ancient cobbled path that used to act as a trade and communication route. This path leads us up the mountain, winding through private olive groves and affording spectacular views down onto the harbour below. From there we take a quiet road that leads us onto an earth track and to the highest point of the tour at 220 metres, reaching the fabulous Son Mico estate. Tree along Soller to Deia route

We make a stop here for a freshly squeezed orange juice. Delicious homemade cakes and quiches are also on offer. After a 20-minute break, we continue on the trail which traverses along the mountain, through a forest of holm oaks and pines, catching glimpses of the dramatic coastline below and the beautiful village of Llucalcari.

The path eventually descends to the cove of Cala Deia, which is a lovely swimming spot, so don't forget your swim wear. There is a great beach cafe providing cold refreshments. We allow one hour at the beach to enjoy a drink and a swim before the return to Soller/Port Soller by private vehicle. For private groups, we can organise a table at one of the two restaurants in Cala Deia for you.
