"Packing List" Andorra Packing List Tip by James63

Andorra What to Pack: 9 reviews and 6 photos

Luggage and bags: Pretty much a standard suitcase will do the job. Obviously, if you plan to ski, a bag for your equipment will be necessary.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: In the winter months heavy clothes, coats and boots are essential. In the summer, lighter clothes will be just fine during the day, but at night it can get chilly, so a light jacket and long pants are not a bad idea. Of course, if you plan to ski, bring appriopriate attire. Swimwear is necessary if you plan to go to the Caldea, although towels will be provided. (Note that you can buy swimwear at the Caldea, but it is slightly expensive.)

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sunblock is suggested for skiiers, especially in the spring months. Other than that, pretty much anything you would need can be found at the apothecary stores scattered throughout the country, especilly in Andorra La Vella and Escaldes.

Photo Equipment: A camera with a telephoto lens is probably all you need. Although Andorra La Vella at night is pretty to look at from above, there is nothing really to focus on for nighttime shots.

Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Andorra has numerous hiking trails with small unmanned bordas in which you can stay at no charge. These are bare bones facilities with a bed and cooking facilities for hikers and campers. If you plan to use these, you will need to bring along food and other appropriate hiking equipment. Also, good walking shoes are recommended in any event. Swimwear is necessary if you plan to visit the Caldea. It is possible to swim in the various mountain lakes, but I would not recommend it as the water temperature stays chilly year round.
