What You Can Expect

Three Countries in One Day: France, Andorra and Spain from Barcelona

Three Countries in One Day: France, Andorra and Spain Barcelona

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, you will head deeper into the countryside as we drive towards 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, browse the local artisan shops where you can but local cheeses and cured meats, as well as looking 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 a memorable French experience, you will meet back at the bus to head towards 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 we will 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, and the wind and the water are the only sounds you'll hear. There will be a chance for you to enjoy a brief hike to get away from it all.  

From here you will 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, and grab a quick bargain. 

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 farming land, and alongside lakes and rivers, before the landscape levels out and the lush tones of green of the fields and the shining grey of the mountain rocks are replaced by the dusty orange and brown hues of this arid landscape.

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. There is no denying that this tour takes in a lot of driving, but every mile brings a new view, every turn a different perspective. And where else in the world can you visit three countries  in just one day.       

Please note: This tour is available in English only. Please bring a towel if you plan to enjoy the spa water in Ax Les Thermes

Absolutely breathtaking experience. Interesting to see how 1-2 hours can change both landscape and culture so much. It is a very long day, but well worth it.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2016

As promised in my last review, I was happy to use Victor again. The day was long and exhausting as accurately described on the website, but was definitely worth every penny. Our tour guide was good and the views were amazing. I'm really glad that I had the chance to extend my Barcelona visit outside the city. I was nervous that we'd be unable to navigate the languages both the Catalan and French when we were not with our guide. My nervousness was completely unwarranted. My college level French was very helpful and in France and Andorra most of the people we encountered were either able to speak some English, or were happy to work with us to figure out what our needs were.

this was a great excursion and very interesting. its a great way of seeing three countries in just one day. Small towns and great views of the country side.

The only suggestion is to visit Andorra before 2pm as most of the stores in a duty free town were closed.

This was a great tour! Our only disappointment is that we did not get exactly what was promised when we booked we only got the croissant and coffee, but not an additional drink as listed on our voucher, etc. but the experience was good overall and the tour description has been updated for future bookings. Our guide, Feliciano, was excellent! He was even kind enough to provide recommendations on other things to see and do in Barcelona, including some great dinner and wine recommendations!! We visited 3 countries in one day, as promised, and got to see some great scenery on the way. I do recommend traveling comfortably so that you can nap during the drive if needed since you understandably spend quite a bit of time in the vehicle, but you also may not want to miss the great scenery you pass by all day!

We had tried to do this trip years ago, but the snow stopped us. So we did it again this time. Great tour. Wonderful guide, Laura. Everything was planned great. Of course we had a beautiful sunny day. Would highly recommend it. Just be prepared for a long day.
