Full description
On this full-day excursion you’ll make an early start from Barcelona and soon be in the medieval Catalan village of Baga, surrounded by the rocky peaks of Cadi-Moixero National Park.

Explore Baga’s central square and medieval church before crossing the border into France, where you will stop in 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 time to enjoy the healing waters, browse the local artisan shops and look out for a souvenir to remember your visit. 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 lunch, you’ll take the scenic route over the Pyrenees Alps into neighboring Andorra, to the capital Andorra la Vella. You will have a little bit of time to visit Andorra la Vella’s tax-free shops for bargain-priced wine and souvenirs

On the return drive, admire the Romanesque church of St. Climent and the stunning valley views before continuing on your way back to Barcelona, arriving in time for pre-dinner drinks and tapas or whatever else your evening holds.

This is a great way to see the mountains and Andorra. Our guide, Marta, was amazing and had so much knowledge. My only recommendation would be to research some things to do in the capital of Andorra before you go as you will have an hour or so of free time to wander.

The you’d was amazing regarding the destinations we visited. Two things to further improve will be the matching of the group - if possible- and I wouldn’t spent so much time in Andorra - there is nothing to do there!!! It’d be much better if we replace this with sometime activity in the mountains.

Well the route to the Andorra taking the mountain route was spectacular. With River on the one side and the mountain on the other with the snow covered laden white was something breathtaking. Shopping in Andorra was cheaper about 10% on the average. Other products like tobacco is certainly cheaper as there is only 4% VAT as compared to 21% in Spain and or France.
