Barcelona to Andorra day tour - private small groups hotel pick-up


We would not bother to pack shorts and short skirts as you will only get a couple of hours of mild weather at mid-day. Generally we recommend that you will need a warm jacket or fleece, long trousers or skirt and a sweater or cardigan.

It is much colder inland and at higher altitudes, so you have booked day tours to Montserrat mountain, then bring cap and gloves too. If you have booked day tours to Andorra or the Pyrenees mountains, then bring warm winter boots too, because they will be snow in the mountains and sub-zero temperatures in January
