High season in Andorra is the winter months of December – March when ski season is full swing. (although usually open Nov – April). Per usual, crowds, prices and availability increase so make sure to book accomodation in advance. 

The summer months of June – September bring hikers and mountain bikers , but still much less so than winter. May will be have even less crowds but pleasant weather making it a great option whereas the fall months of October and November usually see higher rainfall.
