This is a wonderful walk, that follows fine, well-maintained and signposted paths, up the valley side away from Soller–giving you great views back across the town in the process. The path soon evens out and works its way along the valley side and through forest and gorges before taking you down in the valley that runs down to Cala Deia. You will then make one final ascent into the town of Deiaitself. From Deia, catch the line 210 bus to Valldemossa (payable locally, duration approx. 40 mins)

There are some sections of rocky terrain so make sure you watch your footing as you pass these sections.

Always make sure to stay hydrated and carry plenty of water. It is also advised to wear skin-protecting clothing and use sun cream/screen. We recommend you inquire about the day’s forecasted weather before setting out on your walks. A useful website for climate information specific to towns and countries is www.weather2travel.com or www.yr.no

Food & Drink

Soller has countless cafés and restaurants where you can eat before heading off, and a number of supermarkets where you can stock up prior to departing – all clustered on or near the town square. There is a very pleasant café/bar at the half way point on today’s walk, where it is recommended you stop – if only for the views. Deia, offers limited food retail outlets, but a number of fine cafés and restaurants.


Points of interest 

 Jardi Botanic de Soller

The Sóller Botanic Garden was founded in 1985 and opened to the public in 1992. It is a centre for the conservation, study and understanding of the Mediterranean flora, and specifically that of the Balearic Islands. You’ll pass by the entrance to the gardens on today’s walk

Ferrocarril de Sóller

The historic electric train takes a route north from the capital across the plains, winding through mountains and 13 tunnels of the Serra de Tramuntana, finally ending in the large railway station of the northern town of Sóller. Work began on the railway in 1911, funded by the profits of the orange and lemon trade, which at the time was booming. For this reason, it is sometimes known as the ‘Orange Express’. The famous train is now not only a mode of transport between these two key Mallorcan settlements, but also an attraction in itself. You will cross the line twice on today’s walk – you may be lucky enough to see a train as they are quite frequent.


Long established as an artists’ colony, Deia’s most notable resident was the English poet Robert Graves who live there in the 1930s. There is a museum in his former house, and numerous references to him throughout the town

Cala Deia

The small sheltered beach near the town is famed for the tradition of naked swimming – a tradition allegedly started by Robert Graves himself. It is not compulsory however



Bus Line 210 runs from Port de Soller to Valldemossa. It runs via Soller and timetables can be found at http://www.tib.org 

If you would prefer a take a taxi, you can arrange this by phoning Taxi 25 on +34 649 48 84 15.

A sturdy pair of walking trainers are adequate for this route if you don't wish to wear hiking boots. Along with your usual kit for a day walking in the elements make sure you pack suncream! You may also find walking poles useful on this route - they will help take the pressure off your knees during the ascents and descents.

Nice route taking in some of the GR221, last part took us a longer route into Deia with some uphill at the end meaning we arrived for lunch a little warmer than we would have if we’d taken the shortcut on the Ma-10. Your choice!
