When is the best time to fly to Andorra?
You’ll struggle to find the cheapest flights to Andorra during the winter months of December to March as this is the major season for snow lovers and fans of winter sports to enjoy the country. This does sometimes go into the middle of April although flight tickets will become increasingly cheaper as the months go on. March also sees the Big Snow Festival at the Arinsal ski resort which consists of partying, music, contests and many winter sports activities. For a less-ordinary event head to Andorra in May for the International Women’s Clown Festival whereby female clowns from around the world come to visit for a celebration. You’ll find flights to Andorra are more expensive during the event so plan ahead to make a saving on your flight tickets. There are many more festivals too, most of which take place from May to October when the weather is more pleasant and transportation is easier.
