How to get there
Unbridled adventure in Andorra
The Principality does not have its own airport, but nearby there are major international airports: Blagnac airport in Toulouse (France), El Prat airport in Barcelona, Girona airport (Spain) and Alguaire airport in Lerida (Spain). Except at Girona there is a daily bus service direct to Andorra from these airports, and the journey takes between three and four hours.
The nearest train station is in France, in L’Hospitalet-près-l’Andorre, located just 7 miles by road from the border. This station is served by trains from other major French cities, mainly in the south, such as Toulouse. For visitors coming from Spain, one good solution is the Lleida Pirineus station, with high-speed trains (AVE) stopping there, mainly from Madrid-Puerta de Atocha and Barcelona Sants. The cities with a railway service closest to the country have a bus service with direct connection to Andorra.
Due to Andorra’s unique location in the heart of the Pyrenees, all options to cross the border onto Andorran soil mean you’ll have to use the road. If you prefer to come by car on your own, you should know that access from Spain is via the N-145 road, in the southern area of Andorra, while access from France is by the east of the Principality, by the N22 road. No international driving licence is required for driving in Andorra if the reason for your visit is only tourism.
The connections by bus from the main Catalan stations are mainly concentrated in Barcelona, Vic, Gerona, Tarragona and Lerida. In the case of France, the bus station in Toulouse has a regular service to Andorra.
