Serra de TramuntanaSerra de Tramuntana
The highest mountain range in Mallorca lies along the north-western coast of the island. In 2011 it became part of the UNESCO world heritage, not just for its natural beauty, also for the perfect integration of the human impact on the territory. A clear sample of this are the thousands of kilometers of stoned walls (“pedra en sec”) that were built and are perfectly integrated with the landscape and form terraces that can hold the millenary olive trees. On the northern part of this mountain range, there are a lot of cliffs that fall into the water of the Mediterranean with walls of more than 450m high; by contrast, the southern part is not so abrupt. The total length of the Tramuntana is 89km and a medium width of 15km, in total has a surface of 1100 square kilometers.


SóllerSoller
The charming valley of Sóller, also known as the valley of the oranges, is the largest village in the Tramunanta region. It is a strategic point located right in the center of the Tramuntana, that divides the mountain range in two parts. From this point, the distance to most part of our excursions is very short. 

At the beginning of the 20th century there were already local guides that leaded visitors to the Puig Major, the highest mountain of Mallorca (1.460m), and also to the Torrent de Pareis. These people contributed unconsciously to give to Sóller an important tradition of mountain culture. 
The town has a population of more than 15.000 inhabitants and offers most of the services needed for both locals and visitors such as restaurants, leisure, shopping… and also hold some other important touristic attractions as the Tren de Sóller or the historical tram that runs from Sóller to the Port.


DeiàCala Deia
Located at just 9km from Sóller, the tiny village of just 500 inhabitants lays on the valley formed at skirts of the Teix Mountain. Now and during the last centuries Deià has been an important center for a lot of local and international artists.


FornalutxFornalutx
Located in the same valley as Sóller and just at about 4km from it, Fornalutx lays just on the base of the Penyal d’esMigdia (1355m). Without any doubt this is probably one of the nicest mountain villages in the island. Fornalutx is a must to see for any Mallorca visitor just to feel the quietness and the peace of its stone covered streets and its surroundings.

 


Lluc
The monastery of Lluc keeps the tiny statue of the Virgen de Lluc, patroness of all the people living in Mallorca.Santuari de LlucIt is located at 500 meters from the sea level in a wide open valley in between some of the highest mountains in Mallorca; for all these reasons it becomes one of the best starting points in the island to practice trekking in Mallorca. 
Lluc is a peaceful setting and a center of spirituality, and is also a must-to-see for any visitor that comes to Mallorca.
