Packing for Andorra
Andorra’s climate is alpine with cold winters and mild summers. Despite the mountainous terrain, summers tend to be dry and sunny with temperatures sometimes reaching 24°C. Suncream, sunglasses and a hat are musts. For those travelling into the Pyrenees pack accordingly. We’d recommend thermals, jackets, gloves and boots. Expect rainfall in the autumn.
Ship your bike to Andorra
Both the Tour de France and La Vuelta include Andorra on their routes so it’s no surprise that the country has much to offer cyclists. As the highest nation in Europe, expect steep hills and stunning views. Some of the country’s famous ‘climbs’ include: Coll de la Rabassa, which passes through the Naturlandia adventure park, the challenging 20% gradient Collada de Beixalis, and the beginner-friendly 5% gradient Alto de la Comella. If mountain biking is your thing, head to the bike resort in Vallnord where you’ll find 20 plus trails. Ship your bike anywhere in Andorra with our reasonable rates so that you don’t have to worry about any thing other than enjoying the scenery.
Ship your skis to Andorra
Andorra is considered one of the best places to ski in Europe with the Pyrenees slopes particularly good for beginners. There are four main resorts: Grandvalira has an array of ski schools, the Vallnord region offers expert runs, Pas de la Casa boasts a terrific après lifestyle, and Arcalis is ideal for snowboarders and those into off-piste excursions. Luggage Mule will ship your kit to the destination of your choice allowing you to enjoy the slopes on your own skis.
