Itinerary

Depart on your scheduled flight to Barcelona today. Transfer to your hotel, where you’ll stay for two nights.
Join our included tour of Barcelona, a city greatly influenced by the work of the architect Antoni Gaudi. Admire his unique and distinctive style among the towering spires of the magnificent Sagrada Família before taking a stroll down Las Ramblas, a vibrant promenade which cuts through the heart of the city.
Continue your journey through the heart of Catalonia and into the spectacular scenery of the Pyrenees Mountains to the resort of Soldeu in the small principality of Andorra, your base for the next three nights.


During your stay we include a half-day excursion to Andorra La Vella, the capital town of Andorra. Enjoy the rest of your time in Soldeu at leisure. You may wish to join our optional excursion to Andorra’s three valleys, which takes you off the beaten track through Andorra’s stunning mountain scenery.
Today you’ll journey into France, arriving in the picturesque fortified medieval town of Carcassonne. In the company of your Tour Manager take a stroll around its narrow streets and admire the panoramic views of the surrounding countryside from the impressive fortress walls. You’ll have plenty of time to explore the citadel, whose huge ramparts and towers stand watch over the city, and the beautiful Church of St Nazaire. You will stay in Carcassonne overnight.
Today you’ll head south, calling at the delightful old fishing port of Collioure. Perhaps take a walk among its medieval streets and visit the former lighthouse which has been converted into the Church of Notre-Dame-des-Anges. From here you’ll continue to Spain’s Costa Brava, where you will stay in the seaside resort of Tossa de Mar for three nights.
Spend the rest of your time in Tossa de Mar at leisure. Perhaps join one of our optional excursions - Montserrat or Besalú.
Today you’ll transfer to Barcelona for your flight back to the UK.


Please note: This holiday includes walking in areas of rough ground, gradients and steps.
