ALSA is the public transportation company offering regular bus rides straight from Barcelona and Lleida. The company also offers a transportation service connecting many neighbouring towns and villages. As the timetables can be modified for public holidays and summer vacation, we recommend you to check the company's official website.
There are three main well-paved roads connecting Pallars Sobirà with the rest of Catalonia: road N-260 from the South, road N-260 from the East and road C-28 from the North. Some stretches run between high mountains and can be closed due to snow in winter. If you are planning to come in winter, make sure you have good snow chains in your car.

The poor public transportation network in the region has fostered the creation of a private transportation network known as shared taxis to cover a large variety of routes. Shared taxis offer the possibility of getting to remote villages out of the main roads, but also getting to big cities in different regions at the desired time. Fares are usually fixed in advance.

Even though Pallars Sobirà has no railway connection, you can get to the neighbouring town La Pobla de Segur, having train connections to Tremp, Balaguer and Lleida. This train line is known as El tren dels llacs ('the train of lakes') as it runs past and over 4 different lakes. Then you can take the bus covering the route from La Pobla de Segur to Esterri d'Àneu stopping at many villages in Pallars Sobirà: Gerri de la Sal, Baro, Montardit de Baix, Sort, Rialp, Llavorsí, Escaló, La Guingueta d'Àneu and Esterri d'Àneu.
Pallars Sobirà has no airport, but there are several possibilities not too far: Lleida Airport, Barcelona Airport, Toulouse Airport (France)... The connection from all these international airports must be done in combination with other road transportation, primarily bus or shared taxi.
