When Should You Visit?:
Because the whole of Andorra is situated at higher elevations the climate in Andorra is usually a few degrees cooler than the countries surrounding it. So in the summer you’ll want to visit at the warmest time, July and August, if you’re planning to hike into the mountains. The weather at this time of year should be generally warm and sunny, though be prepared for sudden weather changes. During the winter Encamp is very popular with skiers and the high elevation means you’re pretty much guaranteed a good snow fall each year. Temperatures are obviously cooler in the winter but not overly cold so you can enjoy being outside without freezing!
