Winter's approaching fast and preparations are already being made to carry out some necessary maintenance and modernisation works on both the train and tram system in Soller. Obviously winter is

Tram from Soller to Puerto Soller – closed 9th to 24th December.
Train from Palma to Soller – closed December and January.
However, if you are planning a trip on the rickety old trains and trams when they are in full service, remember that you can buy a return ticket from Palma all the way down to the port – the
