Starting in Soller we head out of town passing numerous orange and lemon orchards and onto the Camí de Castelló. This path was once the old road that connected Deia with Soller and was a vital trade route between the two. After slowly falling into decline during the 20th century, the path was restored in recent years thanks to the efforts of the island's stone masonry school. The old cobbled path winds its way up through the estates of Son Mico and onto Can Prohom. We stop at the latter for a freshly squeezed orange juice and to admire the fabulous views of the valley below.
The trail then continues through a forest of oaks and pines from where we begin to glimpse the dramatic coastline and the beautiful village of Llucalcari below us.
The path subsequently winds along the coast, finally descending to the cove of Cala Deia. The beach provides a perfect spot to cool off in summer and there are refreshments available at the beach café. We are collected by private vehicle from the beach and returned to Soller by early afternoon.
Price: 28€ per person, cash only, based on a minimum of 4 people, maximum 7. For larger groups please please contact us directly.
Includes an orange juice in the estate of Can Prohom and return journey from Cala Deia in an airconditioned minivan.
Option: It is possible to start this excursion in Puerto Soller as well, making an equally spectacular walk of a similar distance and difficulty.
