Climb Description

To climb Coll de Sóller from the north you begin in the town of Sóller. From here follow the Ma-11 north in the direction of Palma. Immediately before you reach the tunnel (which bikes are not allowed through), turn left onto the Ma-11a and follow this until you reach the top of the climb.

The most distinctive feature of the Coll de Sóller - particularly on the north side - are its hairpin bends. There are more hairpin bends on this short ascent than there are on Alpe d'Huez, and they can begin to send you slightly dizzy after a while.

The scenery is pleasant without being spectacular, although every now and again you will catch a fine glimpse of Sóller through the valley and of the road snaking up the mountain side.

Coll de Sóller is open throughout the year.

Roads & Traffic

The road surface is in good condition. It is older than a lot of the roads in Mallorca and is cracked slightly in places, but there are no pot holes and it is fine for both climbing and descending.

The first part of the climb, between Sóller and the tunnel is by far the busiest. However, this section is short and the road is wide so it is not too bad. Once you turn onto the Ma-11a the traffic reduces considerably.





Alternative Routes

The Coll de Sóller can also be climbed from the south, starting near Bunyola.
