The mountain air is refreshing no matter how high the temps are soaring below. I recommend driving the Sa Calobra road-- a twisting adventure with hairpin turns and world-class vistas. Felt like we were on top of the world.

The scenery is spectacular! The Serra de Tramuntana is a mountain range running southwest-northeast which forms the northern backbone of the Spanish island of Mallorca. The Tramuntana Range was awarded World Heritage Status by UNESCO as an area of great Physical and Cultural significance.

Many travelers believe that Mallorca is just an island with noisy crowded beaches. The Serra de Tramontana is the chain of mountains which goes from SW to NE of Mallorca. The landscapes there are completely different, you can feel the nature everywhere, it is a quiet and relaxing area with wonderful villages as Estellencs, Banyalbufar, Valldemossa (Chopin was living there),...

We hired a car and drove the length of the mountain range. Thin windy roads, hard work driving. Lots of decent views, the best ones of small bays and beaches, worth a visit if you have a week here.

We were on a coach trip through these mountains on our way to Soller, the scenery is stunning but the bends whilst on our coach were scary although the driver was amazing and I didnt feel that he was not in control. Would like to spend longer visiting this side of the island and plan to visit again sometime and... More

Lovely trip on this antique train. Weather was awful, torrential rain, but that didnt matter. Views are spectacular then at Soller we took the electric tram to the Port. Very cute stations and the best freshly squeezed orange juice I've ever tasted.

A vey pleasant drive along the mountain range that shows a different side of Mallorca, passing many viewpoints, cafés, and even a couple of reservoirs that seemed popular with local residents to stop and walk around. We drove from Soller to Formentor along the MA-10, stopping for lunch at Polleca. The road in most places is not too bad in... More

A beautiful mountain range with some exquisite destinations to visit. We went on a Saturday early morning in early August to try to beat the rush and we mostly succeeded. The drive itself is generally an easy exercise, but is made difficult in places by a combination of narrowing roads with sharp mountain bends combined with a number of coaches... More

We drove through the Serra on our way from Pollenca to the Gardens of Alfabia. As a Brit driving a Spanish car on quiet narrow mountain roads (i.e. wrong side of the car on wrong side of the road!), I found this challenging. However, the Serra is beautiful and the views from some of the stopping-off places on the way... More
