Arrival in Valdemossa
Departure from Port Sóller
If you are travelling to and from Barcelona by car, it is best to take the ferry to Palma de Mallorca. However, it is not at all convenient to take your car over to the island, as the transport fee is quite high. In addition, at the end of the trip it is faster and easier to get back to the ferry terminal by public transport or taxi than by car
GPS tracks are available on request.
