Grade: Medium / Difficult Distance: 14 km (8.5 miles) Ascent/Descent: 560 metres / 850 metres

 

This is a long tour with at least 2,5 hrs of descent, we therefore class this tour as a medium to difficult excursion.
We follow part of a pilgrimage route to Lluc monastery, which takes us into the heart of the Tramuntana and offers dramatic views over the north of the island.

After a 30 minute transfer from Port Soller, the excursion starts at the Cuber reservoir. We follow the water channel which connects the two island reservoirs before entering woodland. We start our gradual ascent through the valley flanked by mountains to the Coll des Prat at 1100m, tracing the footsteps of the old pilgrims.

We lunch on the Coll below the towering peak of Puig Massanella. On a clear day the northern peninsulas of Alcudia and Formentor stand out before us.

From the Coll des Prat we descend and reascend to the second peak of the day, the Coll de Telegraf, at 1126m. There is a fantastic view over the Escorca Valley below.

There are several snow pits and houses of interest to see in this area. These were used to store snow to use as ice in the hotter summer months for making ice cream and ointments. One snow pit remained in use until 1908.

We descend on the recently renovated Voltes d’En Galileu trail, a bridlepath originally built to provide access to the snow pits and on to Lluc passing through holm oak woodland.

Assuming we have time, you will be able to visit the Monastery and stop for a refreshment at one of the cafes.

We return by public bus, departing at 17:10hrs, arriving back in Soller / Port Soller around 18:00 hrs.

This excursion is only offered from 1st of April to 31st of October, due to public bus scheduling. From November to March this excursion is only available as a private tour.
