Due to its location in the Pyrenees mountain range, Andorra doesn’t have an airport nor a railway station. This landlocked nation is reachable by road.
The nearest international airports are Barcelona-El Prat in Spain and Toulouse-Blagnac in France. Either way, you arrive in Andorra by motorway through a series of tunnels cut through the mountains.
Whether or not you’re flying into France or Spain, you have a few ways to get to Andorra. Here are the options.
From Barcelona, take the ALSA bus. The journey to Andorra la Vella takes 3-4 hours depending on which type of route you take. There are eight daily services, and the price starts at €30 round trip.
From Toulouse, you can take the Andbus. There are three daily services, and the journey takes about 3 hours, costing around €65 round trip.
There are also direct bus services to Andorra from several other cities in France, Spain and even Portugal. Check times and prices here.
From Spain, take the N-145 road to access Andorra by car via Farga de Moles. If you’re coming from France, take the N22 road to Pas de la Casa on the border.
The border control in Andorra is not tight, so you can enter quite freely. Have your ID or passport handy, just in case. You’ll find, however, that leaving Andorra may take longer since custom officers will want to know what you’re bringing back to Spain or France.
Finally, if you’re driving in winter weather, you are likely to encounter snow and ice, so be prepared and take extra precautions.
