26 Feb WE HAVE AN ACCOUNT IN WIKILOC, ARE YOU IN? #hostelsoller
What is Wikiloc? It is an app in which geo-referenced routes and sights from all over the world are collected and shared. Depending on the destination, the routes include various categories in which hiking, cycling and many other activities are offered. The routes are shown on maps from Apple, OpenStreetMap and other cartographers. In addition, the service has mobile apps for iPhone and Android and is offered in several languages.
#hostelsoller, with this simple hashtag you will find all the routes we have uploaded so far. In addition, all of our hiking trails have Hostel Sóller – Ca Ses Madrines as a starting point, a comfortable and easy way to start a hike after a night in the hostel.
We currently have 5 active routes with different levels of difficulty. If you are a beginner in hiking, we recommend the tour to Fornalutx, where you will come back via Biniaraix (6.85 km), a perfect walk for the whole family. We start the hike at Hostel Sóller – Ca Ses Madrines and cross Sóller towards Camí de Ses Moncades. We continue to Binibassí, a group of small houses organized around the Mallorcan Posessió, built in the 16th century. From there you take the old path to Fornalutx, which is considered one of the most beautiful villages in Spain. Once you arrive at Fornalutx, there is something magical about getting lost in the cobbled streets and then arriving at the main square and enjoying a freshly squeezed orange juice. We then descend to Biniaraix, a small “llogaret” (village) where you can gather new strength in one of the bars in the village square. All that remains is the last stretch towards Hostel Sóller – Ca Ses Madrines, where we are awaiting you.
If you want to test your limits a bit, we recommend the hike from Sóller to the Port of Sóller. It’s a moderately difficult circuit of 16.19 km, but don’t be afraid; although the number of kilometres is a bit frightening, you can shorten it at any time by e.g. take the tram back to Soller. On the way you cross “L´Horta”, which is halfway between the town and the port. Here you will understand why it is called the Valley of Oranges! You can continue walking on the old road to Puerto de Sóller and Sa Figuera. Go to the lighthouse, where you will definitely be surprised by the panoramic view of the harbour. Continue towards “Refugio de Muleta” and then on the GR221 hiking trail back to Sóller. Now it’s your turn, follow us on Wikiloc #hostelsoller and let’s go!
