Tren De Soller Questions & Answers

We are only in Palma for the day (8am-4pm) onboard Harmony OTS cruise ship.

Would there be enough time to get the train & tram from Palma to Port Soller and back again ?

If you buy a return ticket are you guaranteed a place onboard the transport or is there a queue on busy days ?

Thanks for any help.

I would love to give you a complete answer but I cannot remember how long the train trip takes to Soller. The town is worth a visit. The main square is bustling with life and the tram trip to the port is definitely worth it. It currently costs €6 per head. If you are concerned about time take a taxi from the port back to you ship as the alternative may be too time consuming. Enjoy your trip. Richard

Hi. Palma is a lovely city in its own right and it might be cutting it a bit fine. You would need about 2 hours to get there, an hour on the train and then the tram leaves every half an hour and takes about 20 minutes. You could manage it if you dont want to stop.

I think you will not be able to get that trip, the time you have is too short for this excursion

We went from morning until evening.

And the train is every 1 and a half or 2 hours.

You can get tickets at the station with return.

Taxi is too expensive to get from there...

To get the most out of the trip, including Puerto Soller I would have to say no. The reason is that while the trains out are regular up to mid day there is no train back in the afternoon. Even if you caught the 9 am train it takes an hour, you would be catching the midday train back to get back to your cruise. My personal advice is to go to the cathedral area of town and stroll up through the back streets where there are some fantastic small shops and cafes. Hope this helps.

If you opted for the train/tram to Soller and taxi back option, expect to pay €50-60 to get back to Palma. I definitely agree that trying to do the return trip by train is risky on your schedule.

I wouldn't even try with that short time. You would be better off getting the open top red bus around Palma - there is a stop at the cruise terminal entrance

I don't know, but I guess you will manage, from Palma to Soller is only about 40 min by car, I think the train use about a hour from Palma to Soller. the tram from soller to Port Soller takes 15- 20 min.

Kind regards

Having watched the trams from our balcony in Port-de-Soller, I agree with the previous answer and I really would not risk it. I am fairly sure you are not guaranteed a place and the trams and trains are packed late mornings coming from Palma and mid afternoon going back. Palma is a wonderful city with something to do for everybody, so I would stay there. Have a nice day!

Hi Gregory.

We were there in early April and it was quite busy then so I cannot really be very helpful in terms of a busier season. Timewise it is perfectly feasible but dependant on seats being available. you could check with the ticket office if you buy a day return will that guarantee you a return trip of your choice. I would go for a trip through the mountains by train and then return by taxi to be sure of not missing the boat.

Good Luck and enjoy ! N

Hi thanks for your inquiry. We bought on the day at the station and it was really busy in March. I was a little worried that we may not get on the last tram and train but we were OK.

Personally I think I wouldn't risk it with your deadline. Possibly a taxi back instead of the train but I have no idea of the cost.

With only one day in Palma, visit the cathedral and take a gentle stroll around. There is a cycle hire shop near the cathedral and good cycle path around the bay.

Enjoy.
