About 40 minutes north of Palma lies the serene town of Port de Sóller. Surrounded by the UNESCO world heritage Tramuntana mountains, and overlooking the Mediterranean, the town makes an ideal base for those seeking adventure. Here are seven unforgettable excursions you can take from Port de Sóller.

 

Orange Fields Experience

Port de Sóller rose to prominence in the 19th century thanks to its citrus fruit trade, and nearly 200 years later, fruit is still at the heart of its culture. This guided tour will show how many of Port de Sóller’s local products are made using over 50 different types of fruit trees, before heading down to the vibrant Sa Vinyassa Orchard, an 18,000sqm plot under the golden Aflabia Ridge, bursting with oranges and lemons.

This romantic trip leaves Port de Sóller in the late afternoon and takes you along the immaculate coast of Mallorca. While the calm azure waves gently lap against the boat, you can take in Port de Sóller’s rugged cliffs, framed by the gently rising Tramuntana peaks behind. Take a dip in the warm waters and then bid farewell to the sun as it sinks into the Med.
