Best time for you to visit the Spanish Pyrenees
We know it can be hard to decide which is the best season to visit the Pyrenees, skiing or hiking, but if we had to choose, we would say autumn or spring are best. In these periods of the year temperatures are pleasant, the area is less crowded, so it is perfect for hiking and cycling. Moreover, most of the attractions will be open.
On the other hand, summer brings warmer temperatures, more festivals and attractions, but it brings more crowds and higher prices as well. Furthermore, in summer can be very hot.
Considering all of the above, if you are looking for snow holidays, it is better for you to visit the area in winter. Winter is best if you enjoy skiing and winter sports or if you are a keen fan of holidays.
One more reason to come here is that the Spanish Pyreness are not as crowded as other ski mountain locations from France or from Switzerland may be.
