Book Now

Our enchanting base for this wonderful holiday is a pretty little pueblo called Roses that stretches between the sea and mountains on Spain’s breath-taking Costa Brava. Relax on the beautiful beaches or hop aboard a pleasure cruise around the rocky coastline. A former Greek colony, you’ll find evidence of the city once built by these early settlers as well as a natural marina with a network of canals. Holiday highlights include our trip on the Little Yellow Train of the Pyrenees, one of the great railway journeys of the world where the track winds through leafy forests, past gushing streams and upwards to the mountain village of Font Romeu and a trip on the spectacular Rack Railway into the Pyrenees mountain sanctuary of Núria.

Morning at leisure. In the afternoon we hop aboard the Roses Express land train and rumble through the town then into the serene mountain landscape of Cap de Creus Nature Park – a natural wonder with soaring cliffs, hidden coves and tiny islets.

Day 4

We travel across the border for a guided tour into the French Pyrenees where we indulge in some wine tasting at the medieval walled commune of Thuir. In the afternoon, it’s all aboard the historic Little Yellow Train at Villefranche. A feast of sightseeing is in store as our carriage climbs upwards, scaling dramatic landscapes to the Pyrenean village of Font Romeu. After some time to look around the village, we return to our hotel by coach.

Day 5

Free day to enjoy the charms of Roses

Day 6

After breakfast we meet up with our guide and take a trip on the rack railway up to the Sanctuary of Núria, The breathtaking beauty of the landscape travelled by the Núria rack railway is just unmissable. It is the only way to access Núria’s Valley and has exceptional features: a rack railway covering a distance of 12.5 km over an incline of more than 1,000 metres.

Day 7

Returning to France, we travel to Rivesaltes for a guided tour and we board the century old Train du Pays Cathare et du Fenouilledes. Sit back and relax as you trundle though a land of vines and castles, slowly climbing until you reach the quaint hamlet of Axat where you’ll have free time to explore.

Day 8

Visit to the traditional Spanish town of Figueres, one time home of Salvador Dali and where you’ll find a charming old town, Baroque architecture and pretty squares. We include entrance to the Dali Museum, dedicated to the town’s most famous son.
