Welcome To Your Andorra
Andorra is best known as a budget ski holiday destination, a winter holiday party destination, a tax haven and possibly most famously - hardly anybody knows exactly where it is.
Ask 10 people to point out Andorra on a map and probably nine of them would be hundreds of miles (and maybe even a continent) away.
YourAndorra is a guide bringing you information on Andorra ski holidays, Andorra ski resort information, Andorra Hotels; and due to Andorra's tax haven status we also provide information on Andorra property and banks in Andorra.
Where is Andorra?
Andorra is a tiny European principality situated in the Pyrenees mountain range between France and Spain.
Andorra sits in the mountains between the borders of Northeast Spain and Southern Pyrenean France. It has no commercial airport, no railway stations and no coastline. The nearest major city is the Catalonian capital of Barcelona in Spain.
Lleida Airport Opens Up Andorra
Ski Tour Operator Neilson have announced they will be flying into Lleida airport in northern Spain this year to cut down transfer times for ski holidays in Andorra this winter.
Lleida is the closest airport to Andorra timewise at only 205 kiilometres and just over 2 hours away and boasting a good motorway connection as does Barcelona now.
Transfer times to Andorra should be reduced by 30-40% and Neilson estimate that 16,000 holidaymakers from the UK will use the new route this year.
Barcelona 3-3.5 hours (depending on arrival airport)
Toulouse 3.5 hours
Lleida 2.25 hours
