Day 3 - Roses Express Train to Cap de Creus Nature Park
After a morning at leisure in Roses, we board the Roses Express Train. This road train is pulled by an ornate tractor-style engine and offers a wonderful means of experiencing the landscapes and panoramic views of the area such as the Bay of Roses, the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean and the rugged beauty of the Cap de Creus Nature Park.

Day 4 - Optional excursion to Girona & Besalú (£19pp)
On our optional excursion, we head first to Girona, a compact and charming city located halfway between sea and mountains. There is plenty to see here, from exploring the grandiose Gothic cathedral to the beautifully-preserved Jewish quarter. We continue on to Besalú, one of Catalonia’s best-preserved medieval towns. Besalú’s most significant feature is its 12th-century Romanesque bridge over the River Fluvià while in the town centre are narrow arcaded streets and small squares.

Day 5 - Little Yellow Train from Villefranche to Mont Louis
We head to the walled town of Villefranche de Conflent where we board the Little Yellow Train. Opened in 1909, this historic metre-gauge railway rises through dramatic mountainous scenery, hugging the sides of the deep valley between forests, chasms and gushing streams, passing villages and historic fortresses, up to the fortified town of Mont Louis.

Day 6 - Day at leisure in our resort

Day 7 - Red Train from Rivesaltes to Axat
We travel to the village of Rivesaltes for our next scenic rail journey. The Red Train is a 100-year-old railway line that slowly climbs up the valleys through a mosaic of different landscapes full of vineyards, gorges and Cathar castles, through tunnels and over impressive viaducts, to the pretty little town of Axat. Here we have free time to explore at leisure.

Day 8 - Optional excursion to Figueres (£7pp)
Our optional excursion takes us to Figueres. This attractive town was the birthplace of eccentric artist Salvador Dalí and the town’s main attraction is the world famous museum devoted to his work. Other sights include the 18th-century Sant Ferran Castle which dominates the town on top of a hill, the lively café-lined Rambla and the historic centre surrounded by the remains of its medieval walls.
