Mallorca (Majorca) Day Trips - Tramuntana Mountains
Andratx - Soller Road
The Tramuntana soak up the vast majority of the rain on Mallorca and
in the winter, as can be seen in the photo, are often dusted with snow!
The best way to experience the range is obviously on foot, exploring the
many paths though the pine trees and seemingly abandoned fincas. Visit
this site for a good
overview of hiking options in the Tramuntana range. You can also experience
some breathtaking views of Mallorca visiting the mountains by car or bike,
if you have the stamina, with the R710 from Andratx to Pollenca being
considered the most scenic route on Mallorca. Another lovely dive or cycle,
if not a little hairy, is the C710 route from Soller to Lluc. This road
travels roughly between Puig Major and Massanella, passing through miryiad
tunnels and gorges through seemingly endless left and right hairpin bends.
Hold on tight!
