I am traveling to Barcelona this October and wish to take a day-trip to Andorra. Is this possible?


It's definitively possible. If you check Google Maps, you can see that an one-way journey takes approximately 3 hours.

So If you leave early morning, you can be there on late forenoon. Then you can spend some hours there and go back late evening.

However, you have to decide by yourself if that's reasonable for you. You will have to drive a long time in one day. Maybe it is worth to think about staying at least one night in Andorra. It also depends on your plans in Andorra. Do you just want to visit it once to increase your country counter, or do you want to do some hiking there?

There is no train, plane or ship to Andorra, but you can use a bus. A bus ticket costs around 20 Euro and the journey will take 4 hours one way. You can get tickets at Alsa and Novatel.

    I plan on visiting Andorra from Barcelona in September. Accommodation prices in Andorra are steep, annoyingly. Starting at around 50 euros per night. – MastaBaba Jun 25 '12 at 15:33
  • I was there ten years ago and stayed in a place favoured by backpackers at the time that was considerably cheaper than 50 euro. It was a "guest house" or "home stay" run by a local man in his 60s. I have no idea if it or another place like it exists in 2012 though but it's worth checking. – hippietrail Jun 26 '12 at 5:47
  • I stayed there 2011 in a cheap hotel and it was about 30 Euros for two persons. – RoflcoptrException Jun 26 '12 at 5:53

A day trip frome Barcelona to Andora is definitely a great option and it is quite popular with those who are looking to shop and enjoy Andora's nightlife or its fantastic nature. Getting to Andora is possible by bus, by a rented car or by different companies that organize a day trip. My recommendation is to take advantage of the day trip or alternatively to lodge in the city and enjoy the beautiful area.
