  • 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.

This excursion was rather long, over 12 hours, but it was one of the best we've taken. Our guide I think her name was Loria was excellent, very knowledgeable and personable.

Bravo! Explore Catalunya co was excellent...will book all future tours with them and hope viatour offers more with them over julia tours. Feliciano was our guide and he offered so much knowlege and rich history of each of the sites as well as a few others we passed by. Each country was spectacular.

This is a must do tour, especially if you only have a few days in Catalonia.

The tour guide, Carlotta (Charlotte) was really great. She offered much insight, and even gave good recommendations on where to eat or visit while we made our stops.

Make sure that you put your feet in the hot springs.
