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 Spain. A local coach will

transfer us to the Hotel Maritim in Roses, our base

for the next 7 nights.

 

During our stay, the following excursions will be

included:

 

A trip to the Cap de Creus Nature Park on the local

tractor train, the Roses Express. This cultural tourist

train offers a unique way of travelling, with

marvellous panoramic views over the Bay of Roses

and nature park.

Villefranche De Confluent, in France, recently listed

as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to catch the

Little Yellow Train to Font Romeu. One of the great

railway journeys of the world, this historic metergauge electric railway rises through dramatic

scenery, hugging the sides of the deep Tet Valley,

winding between forests, chasms and gushing

streams.

Excursion to Figueres for an 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.

Free time in the traditional town of Figueres where

a typical ‘La Rambla’ central avenue, can be found

at the heart of the shopping zone and links the old

quarter with newer parts of the town.

An excursion on the rack railway to the Sanctuary

of Nuria. Located in the Eastern Pyrenees, Vall de

Nuria is a mountain resort with a unique landscape

surrounded by peaks of almost 3,000m from which

flow a multitude of water sources and torrents.

From your seat on the rack railway you will see

breath-taking scenery during the 12.5km journey

over an incline of more than 1,000m.

Day trip into France to take the TPCF Train Rouge

from Rivesaltes to Caudies de Fenouilledes and via

the open-top train, to Axat. Part of this historic

railway has been in existence since 1901 and the

journey takes us on a lovely ride through the Pays

Cathare and Fenouilledes from the mountains to

the sea.

1 full day and 2 half days free to enjoy the beach

and promenade or explore the resort further at

your own pace.
