It's true that Andorra doesn't have an airport, due to its particular location in the high mountains. However, there are other options for those wishing to reach the Principality by plane. The nearest airport, Andorra - La Seu Airport (LEU), is in La Seu d'Urgell, a town on the border with Andorra, capital of the Alt Urgell region (province of Lérida). Currently, the Spanish airline Air Nostrum operates commercial routes to several destinations in Spain, the first of which, Madrid, offers a wide range of international and intercontinental connections. Andorra also has several international airports within a 200-kilometer radius, including Toulouse-Blagnac (TLS), Carcassonne (CCF), Perpignan (PGF), Girona-Costa Brava (GRO), Barcelona-El Prat (BCN), Reus (REO) and Alguaire (ILD).
The train is a good means of transport for those coming from distant towns. The nearest station is in France, at L'Hospitalet-près-l'Andorre, about 11 kilometers from the border by road. This station receives trains from other major French cities, particularly in the south of the country, such as Toulouse.
For those coming from Spain, an interesting alternative is the Lleida Pyrénées station, where high-speed trains (AVE) arrive, mainly from Madrid, Puerta de Atocha and Barcelona Sants.
Look for the nearest station on www.busandorra.com on the map and the bus lines that connect to Andorra. You also have the possibility of renting a car.
If you don't want to drive, you can take the bus. Dozens of regular international lines link the Principality to several cities in Spain (Barcelona, La Seu d'Urgell, Lérida, Saragossa, Burgos, Soria or Valladolid), France (Toulouse) and even Portugal (Bragança, Mirandela, Vila Real, Viana do Castelo, Porto, Guimarães or Vila Praia de Âncora).
Given Andorra's unique location in the heart of the Pyrenees, all options for crossing the border and reaching Andorra are by road. If you have decided to come by car, from Spain, access is via the N-145 from La Seu d'Urgell. From France, access is via the N-22, N-20 or N-320 (Puymorens pass and tunnel).
