Packing for Barcelona
If you’re travelling to Barcelona for the summer, pack for heat and humidity with temperatures peaking around 34°C in August. Suncream, sunglasses and a hat are musts and it’s also a good idea to pack some long-sleeved shirts to keep those arms covered. The weather in October and November is still pleasant but far cooler, dropping down to a 21°C average temperature. Expect drizzle either side of summer. These are only guidelines and we recommend checking the forecast ahead of your journey.
Ship your bike to Barcelona
There are many popular routes in Barcelona to explore by bike including the Ronda Verde, a circular route, which finishes on the city beach, and the one and a half hour route up to the majestic Montjuïc castle. Beyond the city walls, trips to the Penedès vineyards, the home of Catalan cava, and the Delta de Llobregat Natural Park with pine tree forests and wetland are both cycling havens. Let Luggage Mule ship your bike to Barcelona so that you can enjoy the city and beyond on your own two wheels.
What to ship home from Barcelona
Catalonia produces the best Cava in Spain, with about 95% of all cava production taking place in the Penedès region. If you’re heading out from the city and visiting vineyards, don’t call it quits at bringing back a bottle or two. Luggage Mule’s copious 30kg allowance shipped service allows you to buy the very best Cava by the case and have it delivered to your door, safely packaged at reasonable prices. You’ll also find exceptional Cava by the case in the city limits. If you’re after authentic Barcelona souvenirs stick to the streets of the Barri Gòtic, the Raval and the Born. Here you’ll find rustic candles, espadrilles, paella pans, Xocoa chocolate bars, and Catalan cookbooks.
