Holiday Itinerary

Day 1 - Fly to Spain

On arrival at Barcelona or Girona Airport you will be met and transfer to our hotel in Roses, where we
stay for seven nights. Seven buffet breakfasts and dinners are included in the hotel.

Day 2 - Roses Express tour to the Cap de Creus Nature Park

This morning is at leisure, enabling you to make your first discoveries in Roses. Roses is a modern resort
with a good choice of pavement cafes, restaurants and bars and also offers some excellent shopping, The wide sweeping bay with its golden beach is backed by a delightful promenade which is ideal for strolling. This afternoon we board the little road train, the’ Roses Express’, for an included trip into the Cap de Creus Nature Park where we can admire the far reaching sea views.

Day 3 - Yellow Trains of the Pyrenees

We spend the day in France today on our included excursion. Travelling by coach we head to the medieval walled city of Thuir, which is surrounded by vineyards. We then continue on to Villefranche de Confluent, which lies in the foothills of the Pyrenees. We’ll have some free time here before boarding the Little Yellow Train for an unforgettable journey through the Pyrenees. Just sit back and relax as the line winds its way up through the Tet valley, cutting through forests and tunnels, across ravines and viaducts, including the Séjourné viaduct
with its dramatic double-decker arches and the Pont Gisclard suspension bridge. We leave the train at the small mountain village of Mont Louis and return to our hotel by coach after a wonderful day in the French Pyrenees.

Day 4 - At leisure in Roses

Today is at leisure for you to relax in the comfortable surroundings of the hotel, or to make further
discoveries in Roses. Perhaps relax on the beach, spend time shopping, visit the 16th century Citadel or you could take an enjoyable boat trip along the coastline.

Day 5 - Núria Valley Rack Railway of the Pyrenees

Today’s journey is in Spain on the Núria Valley Rack Railway, which is twinned with the Jungfrau Express in Switzerland. There are some truly spectacular views of mountains, forests and meadows as we climb more than 1,000 metres over the 12 kilometre journey up to the mountain resort of Vall de Núria. There will also be a tasting of some of the local products.

Day 6 - The Red Train of the Pyrenees

We go back into France today, for a spectacular journey on the “Train du pays Cathere et du Fenouillèdes” or as it’s known locally, the Red Train. Enjoy the ever changing scenery as we journey over 60 kilometres from Rivesaltes to Axat, passing through vineyards and meadows as we follow the mountains. The Red Train has some open-air carriages which are absolutely ideal for watching the scenery pass by. We’ll have some free time in Axat, which is a pretty town on the banks of the River Aude with its backdrop of the green slopes
of the Pyrenees before heading back to Roses by coach.

Day 7 - Figueres and the Dali Foundation

This morning we have an included excursion by coach to the nearby town of Figueres. Figueres, capital of the area and famous for being the town where Salvador Dalí was born and spent his childhood. The Dali Museum, which is in a former theatre refurbished by Dalí himself, is an unmissable experience. Apart from three floors full of the artist’s extravagant creations, the building itself is well worth seeing. We return to Roses in the early afternoon, with the rest of the day at leisure.

Day 8 - Homeward bound

Today, at the appropriate time, we transfer to the airport for the return flight to the UK.
