Mosquitoes

We will be travelling to Andorra in early September. We intend to walk to some of the easier lakes. Will we have a problem with mosquitoes?? I know they can be troublesome around the French lakes.

Never encountered mosquito problems in the Pyrenees.

No problem for us either. The higher altitude and cooler weather seems to keep them at bay.

I've done a large number of hikes in Andorra, both in the height of summer and also in Spring / Autumn. Mosquitoes have never been a problem..

If you haven't yet sorted your itinerary for the walks, take a look at this site: hola-andorra.com/arinsal/english/randogb.html - I've done many of the walks listed there..

Also, if you can, get hold of a copy of the book "Walk! Andorra" which also has some great short / long walks: http://www.dwgwalking.co.uk/andorra.htm

Enjoy your trip!
