If you’re planning a mountain getaway then there’s no more perfect place than a skiing holiday to Andorra – stunning mountain scenery, great on-mountain facilities, and of course some fabulous hotels to choose from. So the biggest question of course is simply how to get to Andorra?
If you’re coming from the UK the most popular way is to fly to Barcelona or Toulouse, then take an airport transfer to Andorra. Barcelona is by far the busiest route, with an excellent choice of flights from the likes of easyJet, Ryanair, Vueling, Jet2, BA and plenty of others.
How To Get To Andorra By Bus
It’s really easy to get to Andorra by bus, no matter whether you’re coming via France or Spain. Our airport transfers to Andorra are also available from the city centre of Toulouse, or if you’re coming from Barcelona the easiest solution is to take the Aerobus from the city centre to the airport, and then an airport transfer to Soldeu, Pas de la Casa, Arinsal or one of the other Andorra ski resorts.
The reason you’d probably want to take the Aerobus to the airport followed by an airport transfer is because the airport bus from Barcelona actually takes you to the ski resorts rather than just dropping in the capital city of Andorra la Vella.
If you prefer to take a taxi or a private minibus these are readily available and can be booked online. These can be booked either from the city centre or from airport to take you directly to your accommodation.
Other Options For Travelling To Andorra
If you don’t mind driving in wintery conditions and snow, then it’s very easy to rent a car from either Toulouse or Barcelona Airport and drive. Barcelona to Andorra is the easier of the two routes, with a large portion being on the motorway, plus there are two large supermarkets just across the border into Andorra where you can purchase snow chains if required.
From Andorra La Vella To Resort
Once you’ve arrived in Andorra you’ll need to get to your chosen ski resort, and for this you have a few options. First of all, if you’ve booked one of our shared transfers or private transfers to your resort the journey will be organised and included in your ticket.
If you don’t have it included then there are regular service buses throughout the country operating during the daytime, however quite a few of the bus services have a “siesta” for a few hours in the middle of the day, so it’s important to have checked the timetables before confirming your travel arrangements. You also have the option of taking a taxi, although this is far easier to organise from Andorra La Vella to your ski resort when you arrive than it is in the opposite direction, because taxi ranks are few and far between outside the capital.
So now you know how to get to Andorra, we hope you’re looking forward to your ski holiday, and maybe we’ll see you on the slopes!
