This is all so the only solution knowing that no airport or railway station exist in Andorra …

-From France
From Toulouse and Foix, take the N20 to Puymorens tunnel, then the N320 and N22 to the border at Pas de la Casa.
From Perpignan to Prades in the direction of the picturesque N116 where it goes directly to Bourg-Madame, Toulouse follow to reach the border at Pas de la Casa. In case of snow at the Col de Puymorens, the ideal is to pass through Spain to Puigcerdà and La Seu d’Urgell via the N-260 and N-145.

– From Spain
From Madrid and Aragon: follow the motorway AP-2 to pay Lleida (access by LL-12 …). Take the direction of La Seu d’Urgell and follow the principality of the N-145 which is anyway the only possible.
From Barcelona: The most convenient is to follow Highway 16 through C-Manresa and Berga, do not forget that the passage through the tunnel is also charged Cadi!
From Girona, take the C-66 and A-26 expressway bypassing Olot and the C-26 to Ripoll (or N-260 for a more scenic route …). Skewing the N-152 via the Col de Toses (still a dizzying route …) until Puigcerdà where we follow the direction of Andorra.
