Coll de Soller is a thrilling experience in Mallorca
Coll de Soller is a mountain pass at an elevation of 508m (1,666ft) above the sea level, located on the northern part of the island of Mallorca, in the Balearic Islands, Spain. It’s a ‘must-climb’ for every cyclist visiting Mallorca.
Set high in the Tramuntana mountain range, the road to the summit is totally paved, but cracked slightly in places. It's called MA-11A. The pass is 10.7 km (6.64 miles) long. The road is a thrilling experience, with 52 hairpin turns. Not recommended if you’re prone to car sickness.
The road to the summit is very steep, hitting a 12.7% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps. It is open throughout the year. The drive offers stunning views: north to the sea, and south over the island to Palma. The summit hosts a couple of restaurants.
To drive the road without stopping will take most people between 25 and 35 minutes. Expect heavy traffic on summer time and holidays seasons. Due its countless turns, the road was bypassed by the Sóller – Palma Tunnel in 1997 and now the road is so little travelled by cars.
