Through the villages in the Sóller Orange ValleyExtensive orange and lemon groves and terraced olive plantations shape the landscape on this beautiful hike through three villages in the Sóller Valley (Binibassi, Fornalutx and Biniaraix). With its closed town center of stone houses and secluded staircases, Fornalutx is one of the most beautiful villages in all of Spain.The circular hike begins in Sóller at Plaça Constitució (or one of the nearby parking lots), which also invites you to linger after the tour. Here we can also visit the imposing church "Església de Sant Bartomeu", built in the Baroque style at the end of the 17th century (unfortunately it was closed on our tour) and watch the famous orange tram that runs between Sóller and Port de Sóller. The path first leads us through part of the pedestrian zone of Sóller with its small shops and boutiques.Shortly afterwards we leave Sóller and walk along large lemon and orange groves, with its famous oranges, of which the area is also known as the "Orange Valley of Sóller", to Binibassi.From Binibassi we follow the path to Fornalutx. Shortly before entering the village, we visit the remarkable cemetery "Cementiri Municipal de Fornalutx". Then we hike through the very beautiful village of Fornalutx.Behind Fornalutx we continue our hike to Biniaraix and come through olive groves with ancient olive trees, before we meet lemon and orange groves again shortly before the equally beautiful village of Biniaraix.After we have left Biniaraix behind us, we go back a short distance to Sóller, where we end the tour with a cold drink on the Plaça Constitució and an ice cream from Sa Fàbrica de Gelats.

Envy is not my thing, but I can diagnose a massive fit of longing in myself .... Great again ... 👏🔝📷➕🤩
@ Burkhard: Thank you very much, Burkhard. And as for the fit of longing, I can understand you well. The island is simply beautiful and super diverse ... and the weather is ideal for hiking, but also for other outdoor activities. And since it is very quiet here, contrary to some media reports in Germany, we will stay here for the next few weeks.

The pictures and the tour, really great!
Thank you, Andreas, for this “virtual short vacation”! We have already run this beautiful tour, a dream! 👌🏼😊 Sóller alone is always a highlight.At Fet a Sóller you can even order Mallorcan oranges online, we tried that out. If you buy oranges at home, they may not taste good, but the Mallorcan ones are 100% tasty!Have a nice time in Mallorca!

@Frank: You're welcome, Frank. We also found the tour very nice ... especially with the many citrus fruits and the pretty towns. In Sóller we unfortunately had bad luck that the cathedral was closed and the tram only rarely runs until 2 p.m. ... but maybe we'll be more lucky next time, because I think both are very nice to look at. We definitely have to try Fet a Sóller ... have heard the advertisement many times, but never bought it. Greetings and Happy Easter.
