Monday

We make our way to arrive in
Andorra and are welcomed by your
Englishspeaking tour guide with plenty of
time to settle in to your hotel in the centre of the
capital, Andorra la Vella before dinner this
evening.

Tuesday

Today we travel just over the border
into Spain and the city of La Seu d’Urgell for
the traditional weekly market. You have time
on your own to explore the market and the
interesting old town with its narrow streets and
picturesque arcades or to visit the
Romanesque cathedral of Santa Maria, one of
the oldest in Spain. We then drive out into the
country for lunch in a restaurant which also
has an area offering a wonderful array of
regional products with many opportunities for
free tasting.

Wednesday

Today we enjoy sightseeing on
foot in the historic part of Andorra la Vella
including a visit to the 300 year old parliament
and the main square with a beautiful view over
the city and the surrounding countryside. Later
we visit Ricard Bofill’s famous church in
Meritxell which houses the Guardian Angel of
Andorra – also named Meritxell. Then we take
a scenic trip into the mountains where there is
an opportunity for those who wish to, to take a
walk by the side of a lake that is 1.600 metres
above sea level.

Thursday

Today we pass through beautiful
green landscape, small villages with
Romanesque churches, crystal clear rivers etc.
You can almost smell the peace and
tranquility. Andorra has not been in a war since
the 13th century. After a stop in one of the
quaint little villages high up in the valleys and
a visit to a very interesting local museum we
return to our hotel.

Friday

Today we journey through the French
Pyrenees and catch Le Petit Train Jaune, which
is the highest railway in France. It reaches
1600 m at the town of Mont Louis. After a
beautiful ride in the Pyrenees we head on for a
hearty French lunch with wine included. We go
back to Andorra through el Pas de la Casa, at a
height of 2000 m.

Saturday

Sadly we must begin our
homeward journey today as we head back to
Orleans for our final overnight with bed and
breakfast.

Sunday.

We make our way back to Calais
for the return ferry crossing to Dover
and then continue to the West
Country.
