  • Tips:
    • Andorra has no airport due to its mountain location. The nearest airport is in the Alt Urgell region, called Andorra-La Seu d’Urgell Airport (LEU). However, this airport currently only serves private flights and because it’s in the mountains, the routes are limited to the summer period. Despite this, the airport is in the process of adapting to commercial flights.
    • The easiest way to get to the country is by bus either from Toulouse, France or Barcelona, Spain. These are within a 125-mile radius.
      • From Toulouse station: The Toulouse to Andorra coach starts at the Gare Matabiau train station on platform no15: Boulevard Pierre Sémard, 64. You can also pick it up from Toulouse Aiport at arrivals, Hall B.
      • From Barcelona airport: You can catch the Directbus line, which connects the airport to Andorra’s capital and skiing resorts. There are nine buses each day from Barcelona Airport to Andorra, and 10 buses each day from Andorra to Barcelona Airport. The journey takes approximately 3.5 hours. The bus stops at both terminals in Barcelona Airport. At Terminal 1, the arrival and departure point is the arrivals area on the ground floor. At Terminal 2, the arrival and departure point is next to the Bloc Tècnic building (between terminals 2B and 2C).
    • Don’t forget to get a passport stamp when entering the country at border control. Let your bus driver know that you would like a stamp and he will point you in the right direction when you get near the crossing.
    • Andorra is a skiing resort, so the daytime is the best time to explore the city as skiers descend for dinner in the evening, making it harder to get dinner reservations or take pictures of attractions without waiting in a queue.
