Majorca also known as Mallorca, is one of the most popular and enchanting islands in the Mediterranean Sea.

Join us while we explore the island and uncover its sights.

We will be staying for 5 nights in the 4 star Las Arenas Hotel which is located in Ca’n Pastilla overlooking the sea. Dinner tonight and every night will be in the hotel.

Day 2
After breakfast we embark on a guided tour of Palma. Our first stop will be at the Gothic Bellver Castle which was built in the XIV century. The Castle is situated on a hill overlooking the Bay of Palma, from this point we enjoy a beautiful view of the city and the coastline. We continue to the city centre where we visit the Cathedral. Built in gothic style in the XIV century it is one of the most emblematic buildings in the Mediterranean and one of the tallest cathedrals in Europe. Nearby is the Palacio de la Almundaina, built during the Arab domination of Majorca as a fortress. It was later used by Jaume II, Sancho I and James III. Nowadays, it is used by the Spanish Royal Family as the official residence, when visiting the island today. (Outside visit only). We will continue the visit walking through the main streets in the old town passing by the Town Hall and the Plaza Mayor with its portico square and the main shopping area. We will have some free time before we head back to the hotel. Afternoon at leisure.

Day 3
After breakfast we travel by coach to the railway station on the outskirts of Palma. Here we board the vintage train of 1929 to the village of Soller. During the one hour journey through the beautiful countryside and Tramuntana mountain range we will enjoy magnificent views. On arrival in Soller we will have free time to admire the village, house facades, the central square, the Saint Bartholomew Church and some time for lunch. We will then take the vintage tram to Port of Soller, this takes approximately 20 minutes. On arrival to Port of Soller we have free time at leisure for lunch.

After lunch we travel by coach to the east coast of Majorca. We go through the centre of the island of Port Cristo to visit the impressive Caves of Drach, a series of mysterious caverns that hide the world’s largest underground lake. The play of shadow and light on the caves’ walls create fascinating abstract images. Here, there will be a short violin concert played from rowing boats. We will have some free time here before we head back to the hotel.
