Andorra Three Countries Explorer! 2019

The tiny principality of Andorra, nestled between France and Spain, is a land of narrow valleys and mountainous landscapes, full of pretty villages and charming vistas, and perfectly located for crossing the border and visiting its neighbours!
Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel before dinner.

Day 2 Scenic Drive & Andorra la Vella
Today, we enjoy a tour of Andorra’s four scenic valleys as we travel through spectacular scenery: La Massana, Ordino, Pal and Escaldes. We have time at leisure to explore Andorra’s capital, Andorra la Vella, with its wealth of shops and designer boutiques. Don’t forget to explore the Barri Antic (old town) square in the original heart of the town when it was little more than a village. Other attractions include the 16th century Casa de la Vall, the old parliament building, court and prison.

Day 3 El Tarter Driver’s Day Off
We spend today at leisure. Enjoy the hotel’s extensive facilities or take a walk in the beautiful countryside.

Day 4 Three Countries Tour
In the morning, we cross the border into Spain, to the pretty town of La Seu d'Urgell, historically one of the most important cities in medieval Catalonia. Full of Romanesque architecture, attractions include the Santa Maria Cathedral and a market which is held every Tuesday and Saturday (it is documented that there has been a market held here since the year 1029)! We then visit the riverside town of Puigcerdà. On the border with France, the town has interesting monuments as well as lovely sunny sidewalk cafés. Our next stop is the French Pyrenean ski resort of Font Romeu before we return to Andorra via the Port d’Envalira mountain pass.

Day 5 Vall de Núria & La Molina
We leave the principality today and head over the Spanish border, through the Catalan countryside, to the village of Ribes de Freser. From here we will wind our way up the mountain on the historic rack railway to picture-perfect Vall de Núria. From here, at 2000m above sea level we will enjoy spectacular views. We then return to our hotel via La Molina, one of the area’s mountain resorts.

Day 6 Departure
After breakfast we begin our journey home.
