This page covers the various options for transferring from Barcelona Airport Terminal 1 (T1) and Terminal 2 (T2) to the centre of Girona. Options include train, coach, bus, car and taxi. It is important to note that Girona has its own airport. However, this page will deal with transfer to the city of Girona itself, rather than the airport.

Transfer to Girona from Barcelona Airport by Train

There are no direct trains from Barcelona Airport to Girona. Therefore, it is necessary to take a train into the centre of Barcelona to head out towards Northern Catalunya.

Take the Barcelona Airport Train R2 Nord to Estació Sants. At Estació Sants you will need to change.

If you are arriving into Terminal 1 (T1) you will not be able to walk straight to the train station, as it is 4km away. You will need to take a shuttle bus from outside the terminal.
