From the UK a IT tour with First Choice. They include a car and a Hotel with Half Board in Arinsal Or Soldeu. Driving from Reus is easy and takes 3 1/2 hrs. Fuel in Andorra was 125pts/litre in 2000.
Car again. Passes are steep so don't hurry. Drive to Car parks to start walks. Andorra La Vella City is a nightmare to park in.
One of the most important tip: If You Andorra La Vella and want to go Pas de la Casa, the best way can be choosing the road to Ordino and than to Pas de la Casa. This road is trough the mountain but it's better than stay 30 minutes - 2 hours in the traffic completly stopped. Or Not. Try your luck...
There are no airports in Andorra so the easiest way to get there is to take a bus from Barcelona. There are also bussconnections with other spanish towns as well as to towns in France. THE PHOTO: BUSTERMINAL IN ANDORRA LA VELLA.
You can travel to Andorra by road from France through Pas de la Casa and the Envalira Pass and from Spain via Sant Julià de Lòria. What we did was hire a car while on holiday in Salou, and drove there. It didn't take that long and it was well worth the visit.
The nearest main cities are Barcelona (at 185 km) and Lleida (at 151 km) on the Spanish side and Toulouse (at 187 km) and Perpignan (at 169 km) on the French side.
There are no best way to travel to Andorra; there is only a way: By car, or something that could go on the road. Andorra
hasn´t trains, and there are no airports, and of course, the
sea is far away.
If you are prepared, it could be fantastic to get around
in a bicycle. Don´t try to do it in winter.
Over the mountains or under the mountains. Either you come from Spain or from France you are going to be surprised that this country was ever found, hidden away in a protecting valley like that.
Walking around is probably the smartest thing..it really doesn't take all that long you know.
Not having car is not a problem. Hundreds of people go skiing by bus every day. Just ask for your bus and do not get lost.
Salvia hotel is very good located. Even the hotel is a 3 star the looby seems a 4 or 5 star....more
