HOW TO GET TO ANDORRA
Does Andorra have an airport? How to get there by plane
This is a question that many visitors to out country ask. In fact, Andorra doesn’t have an airport, due to its location high up in the mountains. However, there are other possibilities for those who want to take the plane to the Principality. The nearest airport is in the Alt Urgell region, south of La Seu d'Urgell, in Lleida. In fact, because it’s so close to our country, its official name is Andorra-La Seu d’Urgell Airport (LEU). This airport is for private flights, but is in the process of adapting to commercial flights. As this airport is in the mountains, its routes are limited to the summer period, when weather conditions are right for taking off and landing aircraft. Apart from this airport that’s set to grow in the future, Andorra has several international airports within a 125-mile radius. These are Toulouse-Blagnac (TLS), Carcassonne (CCF), Girona-Costa Brava (GRO), Barcelona-El Prat (BCN) and Reus (REU).
How to get to Andorra by train
The train is a good option for people coming from distant cities. 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.
