Le Petit Train Jaune

Description: The “Petit Train Jaune de la Cerdagne” runs along a 63km route, climbing steeply from Villefranche-de-Conflent to Bolquère and then crossing the plateau of the Cerdagne to Latour-de-Carol. Bolquere is the highest station in France at 1593m

Location: The Petit Train Jaune runs between Villefrance-de-Conflent and Latour-de-Carol.  Best approached from Perpignan via the N116.

General Info: Tel Enquiries: 08 92 35 35 35.  €35* Euros return fare for the whole 63km.  Shorter routes are possible (see the SNCF website for details).

Our recommendations: Although expensive for a family, there is some dramatic scenery here.  The cost can be managed if you don’t go all the way.  The best scenery is towards the Mediterranean.

For the children: 63km is a long way to sit on a train – don’t travel the whole distance and have a break part way along to make a day of it.

*Prices are approx, please check with the attraction before visiting.
