It is possible to get to most ski resorts by bus, shuttle or taxi instead of a private Barcelona airport transfer. Barcelona airport has also a rail link to some ski resorts. Terminal 2 offers direct connections by rail to both of the city’s major railways stations, from which connections can be found to all the resorts in the region, as well as to the Barcelona Metro System. There are many bus services from the airport to the City and beyond. The problem is that using public transport will mean making many changes. This will extend the journey time to your resort. We strongly recommend the use of airport transfers as the most efficient, direct, and cost effective method of getting to your destination.
For groups of 3 or more it is often best to arrange a ski transfer from Barcelona in advance with one of the Barcelona airport transfer operators. Booking a private Barcelona airport transfer will allow you to start your holiday without the stress of getting to the bus stations and paying expensive taxi fares. It is also the quickest method of getting to and from your chosen resort.
