Easy

This linear walk between Deia and the Port of Sóller or the town of Sóller is a delightful, gentle and relatively easy walk. There are a number of variations to the route, and it is just as pleasant a walk whether approached from the Sóller or the Deia end.... and either end is equally attractive for a final refreshing drink. The walk gives us a glimpse of some of the backyard activities of sleepy rural life in Mallorca, as we meander down lanes and tracks across beautiful farmland and is part of Stage 3 of the GR221 or Dry Stone Route.

Starting from Deia, we set off and immediately descend through olive groves on a cobbled path, on a slight detour to see charming Cala Deia. On the way down we get lovely views of the village and mountains as we look back.

Our route runs between the sea on one side and steep mountains on the other. We walk along cobbled paths, tracks and residential lanes winding through farmland and along terracing. Occasionally we get views of the sea, a senyorial manor house, and the little hamlet of Llucalcari. We pass through the fine buildings of the Can Prohem finca, and get the opportunity to stop for a freshly squeezed orange juice and a rest while enjoying fantastic views of Sóller.

From here, one of the options is to continue on our way towards Puerto Sóller on a wide track through the Muleta valley, passing through lovely farmland and finally reaching the La Muleta Refuge and Lighthouse. We then follow the windy lane down to the Port.

Alternatively, we follow the Cami des Rost into Sóller - this is a dirt track that joins a lovely cobbled path and then a stepped donkey trail down into the valley, and eventually the edge of the town of Sóller.
