  • What You Can Expect

    Where else but Europe can you visit three countries in one day? After an early start from Barcelona, you’ll be in the Spanish village of Baga by 8:30am, surrounded by the rocky peaks of Cadi-Moixero National Park.

    Explore Baga’s central square and medieval church before crossing the border into France in time for breakfast in the walled town of Mont-Louis. After traditional French fare of croissants and café au lait, explore the town’s 17th-century fortified citadel, designed by Vauban and protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Leaving Mont-Louis at 11am, you’ll take a scenic drive over the Pyrenees Alps into neighboring Andorra, to the capital Andorra la Vella. Explore Romanesque churches and stone houses in the city’s old quarter, and enjoy lunch in a traditional Andorran restaurant (own expense).

    After lunch, you have the choice of hitting Andorra la Vella’s tax-free shops for bargain-priced wine and souvenirs, or hitting the mountain trails surrounding the River Madriu and visiting the Romanesque church of St Miquel d’Engolasters.

    The return drive to Barcelona departs Andorra la Vella at 4pm, dropping into Coll de Nargo for a late-afternoon drink en route. Admire Coll de Nargo’s Romanesque church of St Climent and stunning valley views before continuing the drive back to Barcelona, arriving at around 7pm in time for pre-dinner drinks and tapas or whatever else your evening holds.

Our trip was amazing! We picked this trip because we really wanted to go to Andorra, but all three countries we visited had their own charm. Our guide was so knowledgable, and we saw and learned so much. I would definitely recommend this tour!

This was the most amazing experience! Our tour guide Feliciano and our driver Alfons were both so fun, friendly, and knowledgeable. We still had time in Barcelona after the trip and they had many great recommendations for food, activities, and other tours. We do not have any critiques for them. If you are visiting Barcelona, this trip is worth absolutely every dime.

This is an excellent tour to book. We had an excellent tour guide whose name escapes me. He was very knowledgeable and very personable. We visited Baga, Andorra and a small town in France. One of the highlights of the trip was the town of Baga. Such a quaint beautiful town. You also get a chance to stop and take in the Pyrenees mountains. I highly recommend this tour!

This was a super tour. There were only 7 of us, plus our guide Laura. This was conducted by Explore Catalunya. There is a significant amount of travel and only a bit of time in each place. But they are all exceptional destinations. The only thing I would suggest that be done differently is that we arrived in France for lunch at 11ish and were told to be back at the van by 12:20. Most of the restaurants dont open until 12---it leaves no time for a nice meal. Seems to me that the itinerary could be adjusted to account for this. Laura was a wonderful guide and I would highly recommend her.
