Breakfast in Spain, lunch in France, and an afternoon snack in Andorra - a day you'll never forget.

Highlights

  • Small-group tour by minibus
  • Small group ensures personal service
  • Led by a local guide

Depart from a centrally located pickup point in Barcelona, and relax during the scenic journey to Baga in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan. Marvel at the majestic perimeter of rocky peaks in the Cadi-Moixero National Park as you arrive in Baga.
As this sleepy villages comes to life, you can get a fresh pastry or sandwich in the local bakery and a coffee in one of the many typical cafes, before rejoining your guide who will give you a short walking tour of the village before leaving you some free time to explore alone.  
From Baga, head deeper into the countryside as you ride toward the French border. Your next stop is the charming and beautiful ancient spa town of Ax Les Thermes. Your guide will recommend some of the best natural fountains to visit and those best suitable for soaking your feet in. You'll then have free to enjoy the healing waters and browse the local artisan shops where you can buy local cheeses and cured meats.
After an hour of wandering around this typical French village, its time to choose from one of the many local restaurants for a traditional French lunch. After a memorable French experience, you will meet back at the bus to head toward Andorra.
Your route takes you through the beautiful Pyrenees Alps to Andorra la Vella, the capital of the small but stunning country of Andorra.
On your way, cross the Pas de la Casa, an amazing high-mountain pass with some stunning photo opportunities. As you descend into Andorra you will stop off at a typical mountain valley where you will get a glimpse of how Andorra used to be. Tiny stone huts dot the mountainside, a Roman church stands guard as it has done for centuries. There will be a chance for you to enjoy a brief hike to get away from it all.  
From here, head down the valleys into Andorra de la Vella. This will be your last stop of the day, but you'll have enough time to do a little bit of duty-free shopping.
At about 4pm, you will return to the bus and head back to Barcelona via a different route. This drive takes you though dramatic gorges, past verdant farmland, and alongside lakes and rivers.
You will stop en route for a chance to stretch your legs and quench your thirst before arriving back in town at about 7.30pm.

Our guide Miguel was very knowledgeable and provided a good over view the sights along the route and the places we stopped at along the way. The tour group was comparatively small and we traveled in a comfortable air conditioned minibus. Our tour had an unexpected detour due to a tunnel accident, but we were able to travel to France on surface roads and saw more of the Pyrenees and the countryside we would have missed if we had taken the shorter tunnel route. Baga and Ax Les Thermes are pretty villages. Andorra was a fun shopping stop. Overall this was a very nice day trip especially if you are interested in seeing the countryside outside Barcelona.

Incredible trip! It was a long day, but the guide was amazing. He made sure to talk to each group of individuals on the trip to understand where they are from, how long they're stay, and suggested places to go see and where to eat. The history he shared on each location was incredible. Would very much recommend this trip.

A great tour to see the Spanish and French countryside. The French town we went to was only moderately interesting but we were in France and could eat French food for lunch. I really liked seeing what Andorra looked like--it is a mountainous small country with skiing and tax-free shopping. Our tour guide Sergio was very good.

This was the best tour of our stay in Spain and it was primarily because of our tour guide, Xavier. He was knowledgeable, fluent in English and funny. He made it GREAT!!!
