Little Trains of the Pyrenees

Little Trains of the Pyrenees

Stretching the width of south-western France, from the wind scuffed surf of the Atlantic to the gentle drift of the Mediterranean, the Pyrenees form a magnificent backdrop of mountains some 400km long and they act as the natural frontier between France and Spain. Out ‘Little Trains’ tour enables you to see a truly diverse landscape.

DAY 1: Your Door to Door service will transfer you to the airport for your flight to Barcelona.A local coach will transfer us to to our hotel in the coastal resort of Roses where we will have time to settle in before dinner

 

During our stay in Spain, the following excursions will be included:

 

  • A trip to the Cap de Creus Nature Park on the Roses Express (little town train). This cultural tourist train offers a unique way of travelling, with marvellous panoramic views over the bay of Roses and nature park.

  • Visit with wine tasting at a traditional wine producer in Thuir. Continue to Villefranche for a trip on the Little Yellow Train to Font Romeu. One of the great railway journeys of the world, this historic metre-gauge electric railway rises through dramatic scenery, hugging the sides of the deep valley of the Tet, winding up between forests, chasms and gushing streams.We meet the coach at the other end and return to Roses.

  • Excursion on the rack railway up to Sanctuary of Nuria. Located in the Eastern Pyrenees,Vall de Nuria is a mountain resort with a unique landscape. It sits above one of the highest points of the Ribes Valley and is surrounded by peaks of almost 3,000m from which flow a multitude of water sources and torrents. From our seat on the rack railway we will see breathtaking scenery during the 12.5km journey over an incline of more than 1,000m. There will be some free time at the Sanctuary before taking the return train back down the mountain.

  • We take the TPCF touristic train from Rivesaltes to Axat. Part of this historic railway has been in existence since 1901. The journey takes us on a lovely ride through the Pays Cathare and Fenouilledes from the mountains to the sea. There may be time on our way back to Roses for a stop at Lan Jonquera for shopping

  • Excursion to Figueres for included visit to the Dali Museum. Built by Salvador Dali, the museum’s collection allows visitors a thought-provoking insight into Dali’s unique and captivating world.We will have some free time to further explore the town of Figueres. Like most traditional Spanish towns, Figueres is made up of a central Old Town, where the majority of the town’s cultural attractions can be found. There is also a typical ‘La Rambla’ central avenue, which can be found at the heart of the shopping zone and links the old quarter with the newer parts of the town.

  • DAY 8: Today we leave Roses. Our local coach will transfer us to the airport for our return flight back to the UK and your Door to Door service home
