About Le Petit Train Jaune, Perpignan

This is one of the greatest railway journeys in the world. Even though Perpignan is 50km away, it’s still the closest city to the starting point - Villefranche de Conflent, in the eastern Pyrenees. This metre gauge electric railway has been running since 1909. It’s route takes it through spectacular sceneries, rising from 427m to 1592m as it goes through mountains, chasms, valleys, forests and streams, villages and fortresses, and two great viaducts. It terminates at Latour de Carol. The most iconic sights on this trip are:

  • Villefranche-de-Conflent – a historic walled city
  • Mont Louis – another historic fortified city
  • Odeillo – Font-Romeu – a small mountain village that ran one of the world’s first solar power stations. It is also a popular skiing destination in winter.
  • Get off at Fontpeyrouse if you want to enjoy the hot-springs at St. Thomas (book at least a week in advance)

At each of the stations that the train stops at, it’s possible to get off, explore around, and then catch a return train back. Do find out return timings in advance though. The full journey to Latour de Carol is about 3 hours.
