start from the Cuber water reservoir and half way along the route
towards Soller. We have our sandwiches overlooking the valley of
Soller from 700 meters above sea level. Then we walk back
to where we left the car.
If you are
making the complete trip Soller - Cuber - Tossals Verds, then it is
a long trip 6-7 hours walk, and 500 meters uphill.
To get to our
starting point, first
drive to Soller. From Soller
drive on along the road
to Lluc. After 16 Km. and passing a small tunnel you can easily see

mistake it for the small pond you meet just after the tunnel. You
must go on some 2-3 kilometres along the road. Passed the military
Our trip is
easy walking, first along the water to the dam. Here is a junction
leading down along the water pipe to Tossals Verds. (This is a
unmarked route and you need flash lights to get through the tunnels
further down.) We follow the road. By the end of the reservoir, you
can see the refugio "Cuber". It looked pretty occupied by someone
who had come by car!! Tel 971 431782 for more info about Refugio.
Advance booking needed. Said to be long waiting list.
The road leads
on. You will be passing a gate. To the left you see a warning sign
about loose bulls. I didn't see any, and the sign looked old anyway.
After 1 Hr.
you get to s small forest. Follow the track through the wood for 15 more minutes, and
then you are in the open again. In front of you see the valley of
Soller. One of the most rewarding views on Mallorca. This was the
turning point for us. The route leads on from here towards the
houses of L'Ofre ,then down
Barranc de Biniarix, and to
Soller. Descending 500 m. The route is clearly marked with wood
