Travel, how to reach Andorra
Andorra is located between France and Spain but has no airport or train line.
The closest railway station is in HOSPITALET –ANDORRE, with regular regional connections from Toulouse www.ter.sncf.com/occitanie also a direct Night Train from Paris Austerlitz (in 10 hours) www.oui.sncf
