What To Expect

No Frills Excursions
An excursion is much more than just to take you from your hotel in Mallorca to the venue. Our philosophy is that every excursion in Mallorca should be an experience and we use the best guides and choose the best itineraries to ensure that we create unforgettable experiences.

• Admission Ticket Free

Serra de Tramuntana
When you are on Mallorca, in the Balearic Islands, head out on this guided sightseeing day trip to discover the beauty of the island. Get comfortable aboard an air-conditioned coach and while your guide explains interesting facts about the island, enjoy spectacular views of the Tramuntana, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed mountain range.
We begin our excursion by entering The Serra de Tramuntana on coach, which is the backbone of Mallorca. A natural beauty nourished by culture, traditions and a strong identity, where the first travellers to enjoy the island arrived in the 19th century.

Its extremes, Formentor to the northeast and La Trapa to the southwest, are separated by some 90 kilometres, along which you will find numerous viewpoints, turquoise blue beaches and stone villages that are well worth a visit.

2 hours • Admission Ticket Free

La Carretera de Sa Calobra (MA 2141)
Enjoy the coach journey as you get to travel through this beautiful stretch of the mountain roads with the guides explanations about all the different points we will come across such as Lluc Monastery, the Puig Mayor, the Torrente de Pareis stream. During this part of the trip you will have the opportunity to see one of Europe's most spectacular roads, the one that leads to Sa Calobra. The road to Sa Calobra has a total of 13 kilometres and it was built in 1932 and as we go down it you will experience a unique view of the surroundings.

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Sa Calobra
Admire breathtaking views of the rock formations on the west coast of Mallorca as you head down a windy road to La Calobra. Here, you have free time to explore the village, grab a snack in one of the small cafes around the port (own expense) or relax by the breathtaking beach.
By walking through the expectacular mountain tunnel, you will be able to visit the beautiful "Torrente de Pareis" which is another part of the beach at Sa Calobra.

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Torrent de Pareis
The Torrent de Pareis was formed in the middle of the Tramuntana mountain range thousands of years ago, a canyon more than 3 kilometres long that runs between gorges until it reaches the famous cove of Sa Calobra. This gorge of limestone rocks, was forged over time by the erosive action of torrential water.
It has now become a real focal point for sporting activities due to the formations and for it´s absolutely breathtaking views!

• Admission Ticket Free

The next part of the tour begins as we board a modern boat for a 40 minute ride. This boat trip will take us from Sa Calobra to the Port of Soller, as we pass by the coast you will witness Mallorca's beauty in a way that will exceed your expectations. Observing from out at sea ancient defensive towers, coves, cliffs, marine caves and small islands. These are images you will keep with you forever!

45 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Port de Soller
Once we arrive into the Port of Soller it will be time to take the Soller tram. The journey takes approximately 25 minutes and ends at Soller's classic railway station in Soller Town. During this ride we will go through orchards full of lemon and orange trees which is Soller's most famous landscape and the tram will take us straight through the town itself.

• Admission Ticket Free

Soller
Once we arrive at the beautiful town of Soller by tram from Puerto Soller we will have time for a short visit around its charming historical centre before we board the famous Soller wooden train. We will follow the original journey which has barely changed in its 100 years of operation.

• Admission Ticket Free

El Tren de Soller
The highlight of this Mallorca Island Tour for many is the train ride. This experience will be the finishing touch that will make you fall completely in love with the island. You will board Soller's world famous wooden train which was built in 1912. The train crosses Soller's valley as it goes through various tunnels giving us priveledged views of the valley as we reach the town of Bunyola and we stop to get off at the Son Reus station. There our coach will be awaiting us to take us back to where we began the tour earlier in the day.

Great Day Out
Alan J, 28-09-2022
Fantastic day trip, the train, tram and boat journeys were fantastic, but if you are frightened of heights then this isn't the trip for you as the journey back by coach was unbelievable with sheer drops at the side of the road, our coach actually caught a bolder at the side of the road on one of the tight corners and damaged the side of the bus and the back bumper. On the hole it was still worth the money but if we were to do the trip again in the future then we'd miss out the boat and coach trip back to Palma
A day out of Palma

Its a grear experience to see and visit . The concept of different travel vechiles Bus, boat , tram , train is very novel and worth it for the value . Pedro the tour guide is a wealth of knoweledge , very friendly and provides a sense of fun rather then haste as some tourguides do . I highly recommended both the tour and Pedro the guide
Good trip but not perfect.

I did this tour last week, with No Frills Excursions. I have mixed feelings about it but mainlypositive. I did this from the South of Mallorca so I'm not sure if you do it from the North it's abit different. Pick up at my hotel was 45 minutes late. The drive up the mountains took some skill from our driver! Hats off to him. The road is truly spectacular and with the amount of cyclists, it's takes a special type of driving. First stop was Inca leather shop. I know this wasn't a popular visit, but I did buy a bag and purse so I'm not complaining but maybe I could have done without this stop. Then onto the mountain road Serra de Tramuntana as described above. Fortunately I was sitting on the right hand side with the views otherwise left sitters see nothing. Then onto Sa Colobra for the boat. We had around 45 minutes here I think. It's very beautiful but the food choices are awful, a buffet style. Other than that I liked the place. We took the red boat to Port de Soller, stunning town. Proper beautiful Mallorca, we had a short time here, not really enough time but it was lovely to see. We then took the tram, together as a group to (or should I say through) Soller. My goodness it's like a movie set, unique, quaint, beautiful. Didn't stop just got to the El Tren de Soller train for the journey back.
The train was lovely. Beautiful countryside and a hypnotic rhythm. Going in and out of tunnels.
This took us to Bunyola and the Son Reus station in Palma (the vintage train has it's own station)
Then straight on to the coach for the hotel drop offs. All in all a very long day. It's a shame I didn't get more time in the beautiful places and I'm wondering if that was because pick up was late or the South has a different itinerary. I'm glad I did it though because you do see alot of the area you probably won't ordinarily. I would recommend it to others but just expect to be sitting down on some form of transport for 9 hours. Still 4 stars
Well worth it

The tour was really well organised and the guide, Angela was a real gem - could have done with more time in Soller and Port Soller but not sure how that would have worked with everything else.
Relaxing!

We enjoyed this trip and we’re fully aware of the fact that it was all about the TRAVEL part of the experience. However, we felt that the tram/train ride through the orange groves became rather monotonous very quickly. In the summer, having extra time at la Pareis (Collabro) would be fantastic, or in the winter, having additional time at Soller. Both were lovely. However, as a once off, it was a lovely experience.
