Also please remember that it is usually much colder inland and at higher altitudes, so you have booked Barcelona day tours to places like Montserrat mountain or Andorra, then pack a warm cap and gloves too.

For Andorra snow tours bring warm winter boots too, because they could be significant amounts of snow in the Pyrenees mountains and sub-zero temperatures in February. To buy winter sportswear for tours to the mountains, visit the Decathlon store in the center of Barcelona - they have plenty of warm winter wear at good value prices.
