Day 1 UK - Barcelona

Today, make your own way to the airport or be collected by our Private Chauffeur (if you've pre-booked) for your flight to Barcelona, transferring on arrival to the Catalan Pyrenees. The Pyrenees mountain range divides Spain and France and offers spectacular opportunities for exploration, as you will discover this week. Our first hotel is located in the Spanish mountain village of Camprodon. Spend the rest of the day relaxing, before we get to know one another better over a welcome drink and dinner this evening.

Meals included: D

Day 2 Besalú & La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park

​After breakfast we're going to make our way to Besalú. It's a lovely medieval town with some magnificent well-preserved architecture, including a delightful Romanesque bridge. After taking a stroll through the winding cobbled streets, there will be time to stop for lunch.
Next we'll head to the La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park, a beautiful natural landscape which is home to an array of wildlife. We'll be visiting the town of Olot and will set off on a gentle walk to learn more about the area and admire views of extinct volcanoes. Later, we will return to Camprodon.

Meals included: B,D

Day 3 Rack Railway to the Sanctuary of Núria

This morning we'll drive the short distance to the town of Ribes de Freser, where our journey to the sanctuary of Núria begins. This spiritual oasis is accessible only by train, so we'll step aboard the rack railway for our ascent up the mountain. Winding our way through this beautiful area, we'll take in spectacular views and get a real sense of the enormity of the valley. There will be time to admire the sanctuary, take a stroll and perhaps have a bite to eat, before we head back down the mountain and return to Camprodon.

Meals included: B,D

Day 4 The Red Train

This morning you will head to charming Rivesaltes, climb aboard the Red Train and travel to the small town of Axat in France. The brightly coloured train stands out against the dark green vegetation of the mountains and from your open-top carriage, you can breathe in the fresh mountain air. Admire panoramic views as you journey through the stunning scenery, past majestic peaks and plunging valleys.
After the train ride, you will have time for lunch in Axat, if you wish.

Meals included: B,D

Day 5 Castellfollit de la Roca

We're saying goodbye to the Pyrenees and heading to the coast today. On the way we'll stop and take a leisurely walk along a stretch of one of the few remaining Roman roads in the area. Then we'll visit Castellfollit de la Roca, a beautiful medieval village perched precariously on the edge of a cliff.
En route we’ll call in at Perelada Castle before we finally arrive at the pretty port of Roses on Spain's Costa Brava. Our hotel is located on the seafront, close to the resort centre.

Meals included: B,D

Day 6 Roses

​After a busy few days, today is yours to relax and do as you please. Perhaps take a dip in the hotel's swimming pool or soak up the sun on the nearby beach. If you want to carry on exploring, you could head out with your travelling companions and explore the citadel in Roses.

Meals included: B,D

Day 7 Trenet de Cadaques

The Trenet de Cadaques is a fun little road train and we're going to admire spectacular views as it takes us through Roses to Cap de Creus National Park. This is where the Pyrenees meet the sea in an area of rugged cliffs and hidden coves. It's the last day of your holiday, so tonight we'll enjoy a farewell get-together, a fitting end to our time in this beautiful part of the world.

Meals included: B,D

Day 8 Barcelona - UK

After breakfast we will transfer you to the airport for your flight back to the UK. Upon arrival, either make your own way home or your Just You Private Chauffeur Service will be waiting for the journey home (if you've pre-booked).
