Sóller TrainEven if you aren't splitting your Mallorca vacation between Palma and Sóller, you might want to take the train between the two cities. This is one of those situations where the process of getting there is reason enough to make the journey. The historic train line with its wooden cars was originally opened in 1912, the line was then electrified in 1929. Six times a day trains depart from Palma and make the hour-long journey north across the island (and six trains per day also travel south from Sóller to Palma). Along its route (after relatively quickly making its way past the industrial suburbs of Palma), the train passes through 13 tunnels and offers views of lemon and orange groves and the peaks of the Serra de Tramuntana range. On the outskirts in the hills above Sóller the train stops for a few minutes at a vista point with views of the town below. There is also bus service between the two cities, which is both faster and cheaper, but a journey on the Tren Soller is a quintessential Mallorca experience.
