Getting There

June 16, 2008 at 6:25 pm Leave a comment

The only way into Andorra is by road. Andorra has only three major roads, of which the CG1 runs to the Spanish border and the CG2 to the frontier with France. If you take the latter, you’ll go over or under the impressive Port d’Envalira, the highest pass in the Pyrenees (2410m/7900ft). Nowadays, you can plunge through the short vehicle tunnel. Better, however, to haul your way over the pass and savour the views. The nearest Spanish airport is Barcelona’s; the nearest French airport is Toulouse-Blagnac. Daily buses and minibuses run from Andorra to each of them.

The French railway station closest to Andorra is L’Hospitalet, two hours south of Toulouse by train. From there, daily buses make the two-hour trip to Andorra la Vella. Trains run from Barcelona to La Tour de Carol, on the Franco-Spanish border, from where you can catch an onward bus to Andorra. Buses between France and Andorra run as far as Toulouse. Buses from Spain leave from Barcelona, Madrid, Zaragoza and Lleida, which is served by fast trains to/from Madrid.
